Well, that .44 Special S&W 696 is gone. Traded it today to a friend for a 98 to 99% Sig P239, first year of production, box, manual, spare mag.
Second new /used Sig in last two weeks.
First 239 I've owned. Initial opinion is that I like my W.German 225 better.
We'll see.

Hey Tyler,

Thanks. Part of the issue is that my 225 was my first Sig, about 1984 or 85. The first gun I ever put nite sites on. A gun I carried as my off duty gun for years. I think some of my feelings are purely sentimental. Kinda like a father feels about their first born??? :)

To steal a saying from a friend, "The 225 is like pulling Excalibur from the Rock".



My 225 and my 2009.

If you've got smaller hands like me, then you will love the 239. I would recommend getting Hogue grips no matter what size hands you have. I have had a 239 in 9mm since the year after they came out. It is 100% reliable and very accurate for a compact. I bought one in .40 a couple of years ago and got the .357 Sig barrel and mags for it. It is currently my carry gun. I don't think there is a better gun made for concealed carry.

Congrats on the new pistol Beachboy, wanna trade against a W.German '94 P228 with 2 hi-caps, since you don't feel that happy about it? Better not, as the paperwork would be a killer (I guess).

Q for SIG_230:
Anny comments on the 2009? I know that disassemble isn't your walk in the park, but apart from that: how does it shoot/perform, etc?

Thanks,

Hey Charlie 2-6, yeah I'd do that trade...can you bring it by the house

Don't get me wrong, I'm gonna give the 239 every chance to win me over. But it just ain't my 225...

Hey I like my 229, so I'm sure it'll fit right in.

My first sig was a 229 in .357sig,then I got a 40s&w barrel...then I got a 220 in .45,the only problem I ever had was firing U.M.C.'s in the 229.That just shocked me!

It took about three cleanings to really get it down, but it's not that hard. The takedown is more traditional 1911, BHP than the SiG Classics.

Comparing the SiGPros (I have the 2009 and the 2340 with both barrels) to the classics is hard. I like the trigger pull on the SiGPro better than the Classics and the ease of takedown on the Classics better than the Pro's. They are equally accurate and easyto conceal. The go bang every time and I've never had an FTE or FTF. The 2009 with 2340 mags may just be one of the best polymer guns made.
