The decocker on my P239 has a lot of pressure. When the decocking lever touches the bottom, as the hammer start to move forward, the decocking lever pushes back towards the slide very hard.

I have used 2 other p239s, a 9mm and a .40, neither decocking lever felt like mine does. I removed the Hogue grip and the decocker spring looked fine, I cleaned and lubricated where the decocker pushes up inside the frame but it didn't make a different.

What could be making the decocking lever have so much pressure once the hammer starts to decock? Should I bring it to a gunsmith or just deal with it. I've gotten use to it but it irritates me to not know why.

Thanks for any help

I have a P239 SAS DA/SA and my decocker is similar, although I would describe it more as deliberate than very hard.

I suspect that your P239 is probably fine, however if you have a gun shop and or smith in your area that is familiar with SIG's they should be able to confirm one way or the other very quickly. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply, I'll probably have it checked out next time I go to the range.
