Saying Goodbye to the Recently Discontinued Sig P239 (VIDEO)

Introduced during the low-capacity craze of the federal “assault weapon” ban, the single stack P239 is being mourned.

Sig Sauer debuted the compact, personal-sized handgun in 1996 in 9mm and .357 SIG, later adding .40 S&W to the stable two years later. Over the years the company sold them in DAO and double/single action configurations as well as with their DAK trigger system with various finishes and options.

With a 3.6-inch barrel and 29-ounce weight, they were popular enough for a time for the Navy to buy them for both NCIS criminal investigators and rumored SEAL use in low-key operations.

However, when the 2018 catalog and dealer price list came out last Fall, Sig forums lit up with the news that the model had been quietly discontinued.

Nonetheless, Sig managed to score a sale last month to the Franklin County Sherriff’s office, although the model is no longer listed on the company’s website, which means there may be a stockpile left somewhere to draw from.

To take the gun out in style, Chris Baker with Lucky Gunner reviews it one last time in the above video.
