    I am looking to buy a SIG P239 in 9MM. I can get a poly version 17.7 oz. Or an alloy version 25.2 oz. Both NIB the price difference between them is 0ne dollar. My question is that i will use this pistol for carry, witch one of the two versions would be more accurate, and reliable? For carry i would rather have the lighter pistol, but if the alloy is more accurate and reliable i will deal with the extra 8 oz. Advise me on what to buy please. :dunno:

    I would like to know also. Never ever heard of a Poly P239. The alloy P239 is a great handgun though.

    The poly is a 2022 sig compact or full size around $450 a Sig 239 is around $650. Allso the 239 is single line mag and the 2022 double stack. Both are good pistols. Your choice and money.

    I thought the Sig Pro and the P239 were two different animals. Never heard it being referred to as a poly P239. :dunno:

    No. Sig doesn't make a poly P239.

    The Sig P239 is has an aluminum alloy frame, not polymer.

    The only polymer Sigs I, like are the SigPros.

    I'm with you there!

    :agree:

    I still haven't had a chance to dig into a P290. It seem too small and I don't think I'll like it.

    My personal carry is a P239 in .40. It's an excellent choice for carry.

    Get the P239, the added weight will help when shooting. Get a good belt and holster and that extra weight will not matter much.
