I'm very interested in buying a Sig for CCW purposes because I've heard they are excellent guns. However, Sigarms website is not very informative.

Can someone tell me the difference in frame composition between the 228/229/239?

Also, to those current owners, how is the reliability on these? Im looking for something somewhat small, that can chew up whatever ammo I put in it and "drill nails" at 25 yards.....any recommendations. Im looking to spend around $800

228 chambered in 9mm only w/ stamped nonstainless slide.

229 chamberd in 9mm, .40 & .357SIG w/ stainless milled slide.

239 same as 229 only its a single stack magazine.

Psssst....look through the Sig forum here. Even look back a few pages. You'll find the differences discussed in other threads within minutes, I promise.

For example

I looked around a little and gleaned some of the info from previous threads.... I was just looking for something definitive.

anybody shooting the 229 Homeland Security Pistol?
