WTS - Sig P239 in .40 S&W, with extras
« on: January 29, 2019, 08:49:53 pm »
I've had this since 1998. Purchased new. Haven't shot it lately, so it needs to find a new home.

It comes with the original plastic box and owners manual, six factory mags, the original grips plus Hogue finger groove grips (installed) and both the original and a short reach trigger (short installed). $600. The gun originally shipped new with 2 magazines, and the last time I checked extra mags were running over $40 each, so that's about $440 for the gun, with the extra trigger and grips, and $160 for the mags.

Now, I currently have it on consignment at a local store here in Oregon, but that shouldn't be a problem, since I'd take it to them anyway to ship out. You'd simply pay them the asking price, and they deduct their consignment fee plus shipping from what they pass on to me.

Any questions, please ask. 

And yes, if anyone frequents Sig Forum, I first posted this there, but some of their members got all pissy with me about having it posted on another forum. (I hadn't - not then anyway.  Now I've posted it here, but can't seem to unpost it there.)

    That's a good deal in my book.   If I were in the market for a .40 I'd be scrounging around for couch cushion money - but alas, I have no yearning for one at this point.  I wish you luck with the sale - even if it goes to a pissy, SIG forum member.   :cool

    Back when I bought it I also bought 1,500 pieces of brass via e*Bay.  I, uh, may have collected a 'few' more pieces of brass since then.  3, 4, ? coffee cans full?   :shrug

    My reaction to the SIG folks getting pissy about you having it listed on another forum would have been listing it in three or more forums, maybe even joining a forum just to list it.  :coffee

    ETA: Nice deal. Very tempting.

    Nice deal.  The only thing it has working against it is the .40 caliber chambering.  I actually like .40s, but the market has decided that they are on their way out.  Two gun stores have actually told me that they will not take .40s as trade in, no exceptions.  Their reasoning is the pistols just sit and take space on the shelf, while the 9mm and .45s sell around them.

    I'm not buying the rumors of the imminent demise of the .40 S&W .   I've been hearing about the death of first one round and then another all my life and I can still buy all of those as I type this.  Reloading can extend even an obsolete round's life span considerably.   :coffee

    I never said 'imminent demise,' I said 'on the way out.'  Beyond that, I don't want to clutter the listing anymore.

    OK.  I'm just guessing that the reason a lot of those .40 S&W pistols haven't sold is because the price isn't right yet.  I'm not accusing you of predicting the imminent demise of the .40 S&W but your anecdote about your local gun shop's "counter jockeys" isn't exactly concrete evidence of the .40 falling into disfavor.  A lot of people predicted the passing of the 10mm also - especially in light of the FBI deciding it wasn't what they had hoped it would be. Now that they have also discarded the .40 S&W its easy to see some of the same behavior but neither round is "on its way out" in my opinion.   

    Wildcatting and reloading is what is responsible for a great many of the rounds we have to choose from today and it will continue to be for the foreseeable future.  I can't see that as being insignificant in the saleability of a given firearm.  YMMV.    :coffee

    Well, if someone is interested, I'm sure the OP will entertain counter offers. :scrutiny Serious counter offers.  :coffee  Insulting counter offers will be treated with a modicum of disdain. :panic :vomit  :rotfl :bash :banghead

    Sigh.

    You know that it's not dignified to be tempting the poor like this  ;) . It's a really good deal though!

    The amount of disdain that insulting counter offers will generate may be waining.

    Counter offer away.
