I've heard a few were factory built this way. I would really like to find one, but most are 9s' or 40's. Can someone clear this up for me? Can I get the .357 sig barrel as an option for the 239 SAS?

Since you can buy it in 357 Sig, I don't see why not. Should be just a barrel change like my P229.

Have a new Sig P239 SAS 40cal with DAK trigger. I talked to a Sig tech about this. In order to change to 357 you need the barrel and a 357 mag as per his instructions. Here's his # 606-686-5629

9mm is another ball game. If it's a 9mm, can't be changed at all.

If you start with a P239 set up for 40S&W you can easily change it to 357Sig with a barrel change. (I have a P239 with both barrels)

You can use the 40 mags for 357, but there are mags specifically designed for the 357.

Also, theoretically, you need to change the front sight when switching between 40 and 357. (#8 for 357; #6 for 40) Sig says that the 357 shoots lower in both the P239 and P229.

already configured the way I would like it?
Sights, mags, and barrel for 40's are things I do not wish to buy and later sell.
I've shot a lot of 40, but fell in love with the .357 sig round.
Thanks for all who replied.

That's easy. There are several trusted dealers who come to mind on the SIGforum. Steve @ SCP Firearms (220ST board name), Yatin Patel, and Jerry @ Ordnance Outfitters come immediately to mind. You probably noticed all dealers must list the MAP price, but contact them for the lower price. Normally, they can locate what you want if they don't have it in stock.

BTW, I purchased a P239TT in .357 SIG based on the strong recommendation from a colleague at work. I awed at how flat the .357 SIG shoots and how well the P239 handled. Yes, it is DA/SA instead of DAK and it is not "melted" like the SAS version. Also, it doesn't have the Altamont wood grip that seems exclusive to the SAS, i. e., special SIG SAUER logo design and half-checkered, half-stippled. But the deal I got was too good to pass up. I put Hogue rubber finger groove grips on it, which helped reduce the felt recoil. The recoil is quite manageable without the rubber grip, though.

My Crimson Trace Laser Grips and my Meprolight Night Sights say my point of impact does not change at all at twenty feet when I swap barrels between 40 cal and 357 Sig in my P229. Have to go to the range tomorrow and see how it differs at longer distances.

I guess my real question is where can I get one
You might be able to do what I did when I wanted a P229 SAS set up for 357Sig. I found a Sig forum (sigforum.com) member who had one for sale. I got a really good deal.

I also have a P239 DAK dual tone set up for 357Sig that I got from a dealer here in Ohio. It came with (3) 357 mags plus a 40S&W factory barrel. I could easily sell the extra barrel. Then I bought a set of SAS grips from a Sig forum member. It "looks" and functions just like the factory SAS gun.

Everything depends on your patience and willingness to buy used.

I saw a factory .357 Sig P239 SAS at a gun show locally. I've heard rumors that if you have a good Sig dealer they can order one up, but I don't know the validity of that claim. But I can say for certain they do exist, however few there may be. :)
