Sig Sauer P239 9MM

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

On this particular P239, the gun's double-action trigger was just too hard to use -- you might hammer the trigger and make dangerously wild shots. We'd pass on it, based on this gun'sperformance in this evaluation.

We recently tested this same model chambered for .357 SIG, but 9mm wasn't the same gun, of course. If the trigger on this 9mm sample had been more like the .357 model we tested, we'd recommend it. But the DA trigger on this test gun was too stubborn, and the two modes of fire (DA and SA) feel too different for our tastes. The SIG handles like a bigger, more comfortable gun, but it was actually the smallest of the three test products. The P239 proved 100 percent reliable, but due to its poor trigger, we never felt like we had the kind of control we needed.
