    I shot an A1. Nice little pistol, the short reset trigger, or whatever it's called, is pretty sweet. Nice looking too. I think it was smaller than a 239. Seems like single stacked pistols are making a come back.

    I love the feel of the 225/P6, and love the feel of the new 225-A1. I think they feel and shoot great. As noted above, they have no practical value for me (too small or too large for about any carry situation I can envision for me!). So it will be relegated to the "not-practical-for-me" category. That does not stop me from buying them (and my P6 will never be sold!!!), but it does make it hard for me to get fully behind and advocate for. It is a really nice feeling range gun for me. I do want one. But it not at the front of the queue.

    Sig should have revived the look of the original P225 and given it a solid stainless slide like they did with all their other P-series pistols. THAT gun would temp me...

    Love the P225A1 despite it being an Exiter built pistol. Really liked the double action trigger pull especially....smooth. Just don’t know where it fits. Low capacity and heavy weight is a buzzkill for me. Size efficient it’s not. In regards to the P239, magazines are hard to find and very expensive if you can find them.

    I have a P239 in .40 and the P225a1. Love them both. The P225a1 is my favorite of any semiautos. Great trigger. Fits the hand beautifully. Very well made gun for certain.

    If I were in the market for a single stack, this would be it. Either this or one of the old metal-framed DA Smith and Wesson's. The only thing I really preferred about the P239 was that it was available in .40/357.

    The 225a1 mags work just fine in the 239. If you don’t mind the different base plate. And that can be changed if you so desire.

    I have handled the 225A1 in shops, and liked it.

    I already have a couple of 239s, so I really can't justify spending the bucks, especially since I have invested in several spare 239 magazines that won't fit the new 225.

    If I was going to buy an Exeter Sig, this would be it.

    For those who care, the P225A1 mags fit the P239 - though they stick out just a little. But not in a bad way. This is a big deal for me, as I have been bemoaning the lack of P239 mags. Sig no longer makes them, nor does Mecgar. I have not shot the new ones yet, but they appear to be P239 mag bodies.

    I liked the original P225, and curse having ever parted with it. That said, this isn't the same gun; not by a country mile. I'll pass.

    Having the option to specify .40 or .357 on a P239 was it's top feature to my mind. Seems like this P225A1 would make more sense if the power of the cartridge was greater than a 9x19...particularly with it's lower capacity.

    Had 2 Sigs...never had a good hand fit-tried and could not shoot them-sold them
    Now on the other hand the 1911- Fit like the proverbial glove.
