SIG Sauer P239 SAS Gen 2 9mm Luger

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Simple looking yet totally professional in its operation, the SIG P239 SAS was a pleasing handgun. It had no external safety as such, nor did it need one, in our opinion. The gun would normally be carried with the hammer down, having been lowered by the decocker. We found it easy to thumb-cock.

It was mighty easy to get the SIG P239 to this condition. We complained about the non-captive recoil spring, but this one was easy to get back into place, and simplified cleaning.
The SIG was easy to thumb-cock for the first shot if you have time. The driftable rear sight included tritium inserts.
These horizontal serrations on the front strap didn't give us as much friction as we wanted. The rear strap, part of the plastic grip, was worse. Still, the gun didn't kick much.
