    I've had one since they first came out, mid 90's maybe. Mine is in .40 S&W. Bought another last year in 9mm. Accurate, totally reliable, and easy to carry. If you get it, try the Hogue grips; they work really well.

    The P239 has a decocker but no manual safety.

    I pushed my brother to upgrade to the Sig 239 in .40 SW, and he really likes it. We made a deal if he gets a new gun, I get his old Glock 23, second gen for a good price. Personally we both won.

    The Sig 239 is a very nice gun, the trigger in single action is smooth and crisp, and the overall quality and feel is great too. I really like the decocking mechanism for when doing drills. THe 239, is very easy to field strip and clean which is always a plus in my opinion.

    But personally I liked the Glock 23, because it was cheaper for me and had more rounds 13 vs 7, plus its thinner. It just depends what you need/want in a firearm. The sig is definitely more of an elite class in my opinion.

    $529 is a really good price, does it have the night sights? I would say go for it, its a nice upgrade from the glock, if you don't mind loosing the 6 rounds...

    I have one in 40 cal and I love it. I upgraded from the Glock 23 and don't regret it at all. That is a great price. If you want a great quality handgun then get it, you won't be disappointed.:thumbup:

    Yes This one is a .40 I believe its just got the standard White sights. but the gun is in great condition no scratches or anything. the barrels has a little wear but that's it. I put it on layaway so now i just gotta come up with the rest of the money:(
