I always kinda liked the P239. Slightly more ergonomic than the classic P6/P225 West German police pistol, it was a great carry for its time, sort of a 9mm Walther PP.
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.
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. Last month, it largely disappeared from the company’s website, leaving with a whisper.
