I've had my p239 (.40cal) for around a year now and my question is, is there anyway to reduce the "snappy" recoil of the .40cal round in this gun like maybe a different guide rod and spring or something? I use this as my daily carry and I am always on target with it, but I feel that if I can reduce the recoil some it would allow for better follow up shots. I'm open for any suggestions involving installing new parts on my p239, but I'm not looking for a replacement so please don't suggest buying a different gun.

"Recoil Reducers" and the like are nothing but a scam to separate you from your money. Don't waste your time with them. The recoil of a P239 in .40/.357 is what it is. Frankly, it is what it is with any gun that small with ammo of that size.

My 9mm Sprinco makes a noticeable difference.

Do you have the rubber Hogue grips on it? I am "recoil sensitive" (a wuss if you will) but I shot a friends p239 with the rubber Hogue grips and magazine extension and it was great. These two add ons make the p239 a pleasure to shoot now in both 40 and 357.

Don't waste your money on a recoil reducer. I've read too many complaints about those over the years making a pistol less reliable. Your 239 is designed to operate reliably with a certain amount of recoil.

I would do what Luigimoto suggests and try rubber grips from Hogue, etc. since you are already accurate with the pistol. Accurate follow-up shooting is a result of practice. You'll get there.

I have the P239 in 9mm since right around they were introduced, and installed the Hogue Grips. I know you can't really compare this to the .40, but I find the gun very very managable to shoot. Not quite a .22, but no complaints at all.

The Hogue grips on the P239 makes a world of difference when shooting .40 S&W. I have a set on mine and I prefer it to just about any other .40 cal I've ever shot.
