    Narrowed it down to these two for my next purchase. Shot both. Loved both. My decision here is the Sig worth the extre coin? I know this is extremely subjective, but your opinions have always been a factor I count on in making my next purchases.

    Many thanks in advance

    I think the CZ 75 Compact is a better gun. Its trigger is not as nice but it has a higher capacity and conceals well.

    The only reason I would take the P239 over the CZ is if I preferred the slimness that the single stack P239 provides.

    To make it closer you might want to look at the CZ 75 Compact D PCR, the alloy frame decocker model with low mount Novak style sights, 14 round mag, loaded chamber indicator, but no M3 rail. That's one of the top CCW pistols ever made, in my humble opinion. I have not fired the SiG P239, so I can't comment except to say every SiG I have fired was excellent quality, but higher priced.

    i have had a sig 239 .40 cal. & have a cz 75 9mm for carry. the sig although small was very accurate, but i like my cz 75 compact far more. i also like my sig 228 more then the 239. for a little more weight & size why not go with the extra capacity. i shoot my cz more accurately out of these three, even after having the trigger on my 228 upgraded to the srt style.

    I like my present CZ 75D Compact (PCR) far better than a P239 I had c. 1996. While the latter gun was flawlessly reliable, it had an odd trigger quirk that I just could not warm up to. A closer size/weight comparison would be between the PCR and a P228 (in fact, they will often fit in the same holsters). The PCR still wins because it fits my hands better and has a better DA (the all-important first shot) trigger pull.

    I often carry and shoot my CZ-75D PCR and choose it daily over my Sig P228. I also passed on a Sig P225 the same day I bought my PCR. Sig was discontinuing the P225 and it was the same price as the PCR. Both $319 new, about twelve years ago. The CZ's just fit my hand better, and are more accurate for me.

    The Sig P239 is single stack and lower capacity, but that wouldn't stop me from carrying one if I liked it better. They are fine guns for sure. Just pick one that feels better to you. They both will do the job well.

    Another vote for the CZ, nothing wrong with the Sig, great gun, just not for me.

    I love my CZ 75 PCR and it's my usual carry gun. I don't have a P239, but I do have a P229 which I've never carried, though I did put it in my CZ holster to see if it would fit and carried it around the house for 5 minutes. I didn't carry it out of the house though because it didn't quite fit, but it seemed about as comfortable in that short test as my CZ. The one thing that the Sig has over the CZ is that you can get it in .40 or 357 Sig.

    I own , carry, shoot both.

    Here's My CZ 75 Stainless Compact.

    Her's my Sig P239

    Both are excellent guns.

    I shoot better with my Sig P239 and I carry it much more than the CZ

    :cool:

    My sentiments are similar to dondavis3, however I have a P239 SAS model. Out of the box, the SIG had the better trigger.

    SIG P239 SAS

    Barrel: 3.6"
    Overall Length: 6.60"
    Overall Width: 1.20"
    Overall Height: 5.20"
    Sight Radius 5.7"
    Weight: w/mag 27.5 ozs.
    Magazine Capacity: 8 & 10 w/mag spacer
    Sights: Siglite Night Sights
    Trigger: DA/SA

    CZ 75 D PCR Compact

    Barrel Length: 3.9"
    Overall Length: 7.2"
    Overall Width: 1.4"
    Overall Height: 5.3"
    Weight Unloaded: 23 ozs.
    Front/Rear Sights: Low Profile Snag Free 3-Dot, Fixed, Dovetail
    Magazine Capacity: 14
    Trigger: DA/SA

    Both are fitted with Nill grips.

    I have a P239 and think it was worth the $695 NIB that I paid for it. It's the SAS Gen 2 version with night sights and the short reset trigger (SRT). It's proven to be very reliable and accurate with factory ammunition and reloads. However, the CZ 75D is at least $200 cheaper, and based on comments here, it's also an excellent pistol. So it's a good question, what do you get for the extra money? EAJ and dondavis3 provided some good information and excellent photos, but didn't really answer the OP's question. Maybe there isn't a simple answer.

    CZ would be my pick, without hesitation.

    To me, the Sig carries better (especially due to the CZs decocker shape). I loved my PCR, but I really did shoot the P239 better and found it easier to carry.

    Having said that - I found that I liked the P225/P6 better than either and sold both the PCR and the P239. :)

    I forget, is there an aluminum framed CZ compact version with a safety instead of a decocker?

    I know the PCR is aluminum, but it has a decocker. The CZ compact has a safety, but it is steel. Is there a compact CZ design that has the best of both worlds?

    I prefer the CZ. The Sig is not worth the extra IMO. I had a 239 SAS stainless and sold it.

    Trebor, not aluminum, alloy, not quite the same animal.
    There is a gun in the works just for you, released overseas for now, but maybe, maybe in the US sometime in the future. It's called the CZ P-02, the P-01 with Omega trigger and the switchable decocker/standard safety mechanism of the P-07. Maybe someday.

    In the meantime the P-07 Duty can do that as well, slightly larger, but has the switchable safety/decocker, poly frame, 16 round mag, but it IS bigger. But not much - let me show you.

    P-01 on top of P-07

    Vice versa

    p07ontopofp01.jpg

    The reason I bring that up is the P-01 and the PCR are the same size, with the P-01 having the M3 rail.
