Used P239. Would you buy it?

Ok. Looking for a little group think here. I ran across a used P239 at one of my LGS today. I have always liked the P239 and wouldn't mind adding one. It came w/ 2 mags and a gray plastic case. It looked as if it was a daily carried gun and did have holster wear on the slide. The frame rails looked really good and were a dull to shiny black. There were no areas where you could see abnormal frame wear. The barrel had a pretty decent smiley. Feedramp and hood looked good. The inside of the barrel was no longer black like a new gun. So here is my question and concern so to speak. The gun seemed fairly dirty. While I understand guns get dirty, I am very meticulous after each range outing in my cleanings and if I were the original owner would have done a little cleaning before selling or trading in to the LGS. If you can't bother to clean a gun before trading it in or selling to a dealer how well did you care for the firearm? Which is somewhat perplexing given the condition of the rails etc. The gun is $475 and my LGS is telling me they will guarantee function. Am I over thinking this or should I just pull the trigger so to speak?

Sorry no pictures. If you feel like this thread needs some then please add pics of your p239

Sounds like a good deal. The P239 is a very good firearm. They could have taken it out for one last shoot before trading or selling it. A lot of folks figure that the dealer will clean it. If it doesn't show signs of abuse, or damage then it should be good to go.
Pic's would help, but it sounds like a good deal on a good firearm. How is the fit and feel in your hand?
At that price, and I saw it was in very good condition, I'd buy it. Saw a used one at one of the LGS's and they wanted $700.

It feels great in the hand. Like I said the frame and everything looked great. It did have your basic wear of a carry gun but I was gonna do that to it regardless. I figured I could just get it, disassemble, clean thoroughly, and maybe get a new parts kit from sig as I am unsure of the round count.

On a side note I have purchased several guns from this dealer and they always treat me right. They are selling new P239s with night sights for 700.

The rails and barrel are all that really count. If they look good then the gun will serve you well. As long as a little lube was used, dirt doesn't really matter.
Some guys are meticulous, and others brag about how long they go between cleanings.
Good luck with it, and I hope to snag one someday.

Go for it. I purchased a used 239 from a LEO buddy of mine. He bought it as a back up gun and only put rounds through it for qualifying. I paid $500 and it came with 3 mags. He may have put 500 rounds through it. It is my EDC now.

I just (as in Monday) shelled out $599 for a used P239 in .40cal. You didn't mention what caliber the one you looked at was. The difference otherwise would be that this one was spotlessly clean, whether the dealer or the guy he bought it from cleaned it. Actually, it looks pretty close to new, I am sad to say someone probably sold it off to raise $$$$.

This was in new condition, I knew who the original owner was, came with three mags and is accurate. I paid $615.00 but feel I got a great gun for the money. If they stand behind it you really can not go wrong. Good luck.
Be safe, Frank.

Well. I now own a P239. However, instead of purchasing the one from my LGS I purchased from an individual. While I was waiting to make a decision, and I glad I did, I came across an all German P239 in immaculate condition. The owner had everything from the day he bought it including test target. It is two tone with matching serial numbers obviously. I felt like it was an awesome find. Can't wait to shoot it.
