Recently I started a thread regarding Sig and their narrowing their lineup of popular pistols, one of my favorites included being the 239 in 9mm. https://bushcraftusa.com/forum/threads/sig-is-crazy.214794/ I wanted that pistol for years and years and finally got one a few years ago, boy I was happy. It shot great, I was probably about twice as accurate with it as I am with Glocks, which is pretty good. Sig not only discontinued the 239 (and others) in the line-up, they stopped selling parts and closed them out to wholesalers and said they wouldn't support it anymore. I had some spare parts on backorder from midway but for one set of parts I would have been out $120+ plus shipping from two distributors. I also had a spare magazine ordered which was almost $50. The parts were hard to find as it was, now they are scarce to say the least. Now it sounds great to have a set of spare parts, but that only included one flat recoil spring with numerous other springs one each. The gun would likely last me for the rest of my life, but only one recoil spring? And if it ever needed something serious that I couldn't figure out I'd have to pay a smith and pray he could find or make a part since Sig wouldn't support it anymore? It all was a little overwhelming buying parts I didn't even need at expensive prices and the backorder may or may not have even come through since I've had them canceled before. I'm a little sad since I wanted it for so long. I'm a little frustrated because I wanted a 229 or a few others eventually, but who knows if they eventually decide to go another direction--eventually. Dont want thousands of dollars of firearms that already have proprietary parts and eventually cant get anything for them. I do realize that lots of people own lots of firearms that are no longer made and they still shoot fine. That doesn't make me feel a lot better as new as this gun was to me. I think Sig wants to get more into the poly gun arena so they can be competitive in price. But people love (ed) Sig and the metal guns a lot, and didn't feel the price was too high for what they got in quality and accuracy. If you were watching a few years ago Sig was offering dozens of guns, why couldn't they make metal and poly? And dropping such a polular gun in their lineup is nuts. Their recent poly gun has a proprietary rail which means proprietary lights. Marketing mistake there too. Sigh. IDK. I may buy another one one day, but after losing almost half my money on a dream gun it's gonna be hard to get over.
