Went to my LGS today and looked at the p225, now I'm thinking of trading in my p239 for the p225.... I loved how it felt and seemed to be a very well balanced pistol.......Decisions decisions
I would respectfully disagree with your first point and 100% support your second. I carry my '89 P225 often, and because of it's amazing ergos and shootability, I feel very confident with it to cover just about all the bases I can ever imagine realistically needing to use a sidearm.It's kind of an obsolete gun because of it's limited capacity, but dang are the ergonomics fantastic.
Yeh I don't see it that way either. I debated the P225A1 and the 239 for a while. Couldn't be happier with my new 225A1, it's a very handy feeling gun and the single stack mags make it easy to carry a spare or 2. Fully loaded it feels much lighter than my 229SAS 9mm. Whatever the difference really is, it feels substantial. I do concur on the ergos it's definitely my most ergonomic handgun period. I'm good with the 8+1 considering how well I can shoot it.It's kind of an obsolete gun because of it's limited capacity, but dang are the ergonomics fantastic.
Lkwebb, you know, Sig will convert it to DA/SA for $199.95. I know that may seem high, but unless you fall into a cheap, but complete parts kit, to do it, the sum of all the parts required, at retail, appears to be a little more than that, plus they send you the "old" parts back, so you could sell them, if someone was interested. Plus Sig will insure it is "safe and functional".I bought the p239 .40 in the Dak. I just don't like the long trigger pull, I really thought I could get used to it but have not to this point. If it would have been a Da/sa I prolly could have changed the trigger out with a qrt.
