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

Traded my 239 for a S&W 686, 357 Mag, then got a P225A-1 about a month later.

Like it better than the 239

I have often thought about how to go about purchasing a P225-A1, but I couldn't see getting rid of my P239, simply because the P225 is always/only a 9mm and my P239 is a 327 Sig, so it could be all three 9/40/357 ....... But dang does it feel good holding one :)

buy the 225 but don't trade the 239.
^^ That. I wouldn't trade a P239 for a P225A1 either, especially not if the P239 is a .40 or .357 - the multi caliber capability can't be beat.

It's kind of an obsolete gun because of it's limited capacity, but dang are the ergonomics fantastic.
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.

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.

SSP,

I've only carried my P225 on a limited basis, but I always seem to end up with the P239 on my side. Both carry 8+1. The P225 is my fav. P239 is slightly smaller. P225 has better ergos. P239 is easier to conceal. I always seem to choose the P239. Maybe it's because I'm so fond of the P225 I'd hate to be away from her in the event I had to use it and PD held it as evidence. I could always get another P239 in that situation.

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.

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".

Not obsolete here...

In the People's Republik of Kalifornia where we are limited to 10 round capacity, a single stack P225 makes a lot of sense

Given that, I would follow the excellent advise stated above and keep the P239 AND buy a P225!

The P225 A1 is a great pistol. Feels great in my hand and I shoot it well. Its now my EDC. I'm not a P239 fan at all so can't offer you much help on trading your P239 to a P225. I normally don't trade or sell any of my Sigs but I traded my P938 for the P225 A1. Can't be any happier...
