Cdnn has a really good deal on the 239 tac in 9mm. I can't hit the broad side of a barn with my Glock 43 so I am in the market for a slightly larger CC gun. Anyone have any experience with concealing a gun with a threaded barrel? I know it's not ideal due to the extended barrel length but perhaps you gain slight accuracy and muzzle velocity. Thanks.

I have been watching that sale. P239 is a good accurate compact gun. I own a P239 SAS 9 mm. It is great.

The extra 1/2" for the barrel extension should not be a detriment for CC. A good holster is a must. This gun comes with SRT included ( must for me), front serrations (take it or leave it but for the price I would take it), 3 magazine (good deal). If I did not own one already I would have gone for this deal.

In January I bought from them the P229 SAS. Good price for it. Two weeks ago they dropped the price on it by $90 for 2 days. I keep eyeing the P220 Super Match for a price drop. CDNN are good people to deal with. So far I have purchase two guns from them.

Yeah, I was disappointed when the LONG awaited G43 arrived at my LGS/Gun Range. It's the snappiest 9mm I'd ever shot!! My P225-A1 is a bigger/heavier gun, but a JOY to shoot, and a regular summer carry here too.

While we have a couple threaded barrel pistols, I don't CCW these pistols with those barrels mounted. These are full-sized guns that make the best suppressor hosts, and am uncomfortable the thread cover may snag on holster, apparel of something at the very worst moment...

Cheers

When I got my first SIG, it was a P229R 40 DA/SA with BarSto threaded barrel. I used the same gun for nightstand duty w/ Silencerco osprey suppressor and weapon light. In the morning the suppressor and light came off, a thread protector went on to transform into my carry gun.

The threaded barrel extension was never an issue. I used OWB and occasionally a shoulder holster

I wouldn't worry about the threaded barrel if the price on the package is good. For CC, especially IWB, I'd rather deal with a little extra "overall length" than a little extra "height" in the pistol and IMO, the P239 provides a very good balance between concealability and shootability.

If the length of the TB proves to be an issue for CC, just pick up a stock standard length barrel to use for CC and use the TB for special occasions or just sell it off. You'd still have a good deal on a darn fine pistol.

My only nitpick on the P239 chambered in 9mm is that it lacks the flexibility/capability of the same pistol chambered in 357 or 40; can't go up in caliber, but can go down. But if you never intend to shoot anything but 9mm, it's still a darn good pistol.

Awesome gun for CC. It's what I use. The little extra length from the thread barrel shouldn't be an issue, and like others have said you can buy a standard and sell the threaded. Pick up a flush 8rd (if it doesn't come with one) and carry a 10 or two for reloads.

I have one in 40. Very good gun for carry if on the heavy side but a good holster takes care of that.

This gun has the nice feature in that you can change calibers. The gun will handle 40, 357 and 9mm with just a mag/barrel swop.

Currently I am waiting on pay day to get a 9mm barrel. Opens the gun up for more flexibility based on practice ammo prices.

I would see if they still had any of the P239 SAS models. The tall sights and threaded barrel will prove to be a PITA, and if you sell the (matching serial numbered) threaded barrel, it will devalue the pistol.

They do have the HK VP9 SK in stock, but i would look for the P30 SK

Wasn't aware that SIG was serializing the barrels on current US production P239s.

They are not. Last weekend helped a friend with a new P239 SAS 9 mm with take down, assembly, cleaning and just plain gun basics before range session. Born date was February of this year. I only notice serial # on the frame.

Just picked up one of these P239 tactical models. Great little pistol, no high sights on this tactical, no serialized barrel. I don't see the TB being an issue for my wife's chosen carry method. This is the first SRT I have shot, looks like the MK25's will be getting an upgrade!

I'm surprised a SRT kit hasn't made its way into your MK25 yet, anyway! Congratulations on the acquisition for your better half... if you ever do get a can for it, you can always add the taller sights, until then enjoy it as it is!
This wouldn't happen to be one of CDNNs $699.99 specials would it? Since they're now out of stock, on them!

Got it at my LGS, $640. I had asked him about this model a week ago and he had never heard of it, he got his weekly shipment yesterday and one of these was in the batch so he called me.
I don't find a need for tall sights when shooting suppressed, I just aim through the suppressor. I will need to get the proper piston for my TiRant 45, both my MK 25's have SilencerCo barrels threaded 1/2 x 28.
I truly did not know what I was missing with the SRT, must make sure I have the funds set aside before the next father's day special arrives;)

That was a little better than CDNNs price, the SRT kits for the 226 is only the sear and safety lever, and only $49 each @ Sig, or only $44.99 each @ MidwayUSA. Only takes a few minutes to install them, and you have already seen the results. Besides, Fathers Day is a long way off!!!

300 rounds through this P239 tactical and no issues. Shoots very soft for a pistol this size. Accuracy has been very impressive, I usually struggle a bit with a new pistol but this one was just right for me. All that's left is spending a bunch on SD ammo to see if it doesn't like a particular round and then turning it over to the wife to get familiar with before she starts to carry it.

my 239 in .40 is my default CC gun, some say its heavy for its side but I don't mind the weigh, it makes the 239 a very soft shooter, I don't think you will have issues with the extra 1/2" of barrel for CCing.
