New grips for p239

A few weeks ago I asked for recommendations for new grips for my p239 .40 police trade-in. Thanks for all the great comments!

I went with the black/grey g10 piranhas, and they arrived today. SO much better feeling than the hogue rubber grips!

As I mentioned in my previous post, I had all but written this gun off. But now, Iím actually thinking about carrying it.

The biggest thing that gives me pause isnít caliber or capacity, itís that this is a discontinued gun. Parts are often hard to find, if not downright impossible. Sig will work on it now, but how much longer?

Should that legitimately be something to be concerned about? Because I sure do like this gun otherwise.

Personally, I think you will grow so fond of your 239 that you will put away several of the parts youíll surely need, carry it confidently and never part with it. IMO, possibly the best all metal carry piece they ever made. Being a 40, you can potentially also make a 357 or 9mm which just expands the potential life expectancy. Congrats on your rediscovery.

Great choice of grips. Those Piranhas have improved the feel on every Sig Iíve put them on.

My EDC is a P239/9. The fact that it's discontinued makes no difference to me whatsoever. I really don't shoot it that much, so I suspect I'll never wear it out. I've got a few spare recoil springs and trigger bar springs, so I imagine I can go about 20k-25k rounds before I have to search for maintenance parts.

Buy another one as a spare or buy parts kit for future maintenance. I bought a couple for my wife's 9mm and for my .40.

Looks good! I wouldn't worry too much about being discontinued, I may be wrong, but these aren't what you would call "high volume" shooters. If you look at the "maintenance chart" for "replacement" you should be more assured.

While still available Wolff Gunsprings has replacement Magazine springs available, Sig still has Recoil Springs, Trigger Bar Springs, Slide Catch Lever Springs, and Decocking Lever springs (universal to most models), those @ 10,000 cycle/round intervals, or less.

You can always send it in for a "Spa Treatment" (Full Service Package @ $84.95 + $55 shipping), where they (Sig) will replace all of the springs, including those like the Hammer Reset Spring, and send you back the "old" parts to keep as emergency "back-ups"! Do that initially, and for the "Hard To Find" unique springs, you'll be good to go for 20,000 cycles/rounds.

Same grips I put on my P239 SAS Gen 2 9mm.

If you plan to keep it for the long run, I would make sure you have enough springs and magazines, at the least. Parts are getting hard to find and we'll all be looking for good used parts before long.

I like the hogue rubber grips! As for spare parts, I have a spare gun plus some recoil springs and spare part kits.

Nice! I have a set of Hogue piranhas for my P239s. I like them, but I guess I prefer more of a contour/curve on the sides?

My faves (that I’ve tried) for the P239 are Nills. The palm swell fills the strong hand and gives your support hand some meat to work with. The texture is positive, without feeling like a cheese grater. Though I’ll say I don’t mind some bite when it comes to grip texturing.

I honestly love the feel of the stock grips. The contour is just right for me, but there’s basically no texturing. Experimented with skateboard tape... liked the feel shooting, but it rubbed me the wrong way (literally) while carrying.

Those Nills do look fantastic! They were a close second choice, and I may yet pick up a set someday.

I have Two P239s a Nitron DAK in 357Sig/40S&W and a Scorpion in 9MM.
I have three parts kits for Each plus a couple of sets of Recoil Springs too.
Whenever I find a reasonable price on kits I will purchase more.
Sig has raised the Parts Kits to Double on most models.
