Owning a civilian legal silencer is easy: get a trust, buy a silencer, fill out some BATFE forms, pay the government $200, and pass go. In fact, the most difficult part of the process may be setting up your host weapon for the task. As a result, many clients find themselves on a wild goose chase for threaded barrels. Thus, a cottage industry has emerged. Firms like Storm Lake, Jarvis, Lone Wolf, EFK Fire Dragon, and Bar-Sto provide clients with threaded barrels for Glocks, Sigs, HKs, XDs, M&Ps, and 1911s. But, these barrels can reach upwards of $250-- a costly necessity that many users do not initially figure into the overall cost of the solution.

Thankfully, companies like Heckler & Koch, Sig Sauer, and Smith & Wesson are ahead of the curve. They currently offer models with threaded barrels as standard features. This is one of the reasons I purchased a USP Compact Tactical a few years ago. Eventually, I would want to suppress a weapon and wouldn't want to spend an extra $200 for a barrel.

The latest in this family of out-of-the-box tactical pistols is the brand new Sig Sauer P239 Tactical. It's a 9mm compact featuring Sig's awesome short reset trigger system (SRT), factory night sights, and three (3) 8-round magazines. It's everything you need to go silent-- save for the silencer, of course. It also has new forward cocking serrations on the slide, that are both functional and esthetically pleasing.

They're brand new, in stock everywhere, and only $725.34. If you're thinking about getting into the world of class 3 weaponry now, or in the near future-- take a look at the Sig P239 Tactical. It's a great solution in my opinion.

Have a good one.

Evan,

Welcome to XD Talk!

Good review!

Now a couple of questions. I used to have a Sig 226 9mm - about 20 years ago, I made a big mistake and traded it in for a Glock.

That Sig was Double Action to Single Action. What is the "short reset trigger system"? Is it double or single or something else? That is a new one on me. Also, what is the difference in price between the 239 tactical and the regular 239?

It's a relatively new option for Sigs--- like in the past two or three years, I think. However, I'm pretty sure you could buy the parts from Sig to convert your old P226.

It's DA/SA with a better SA/reset.

If only.... My old Sig is gone in a fateful mistake - traded for tupperware aka Glock which was recently and thankfully traded away.

And now a moment of silence for great guns (like my old Sig 226) that were traded away.....
