With an overall length of 168 mm (6.6 in) and height of 132 mm (5.2 in), and weighing approximately 710–770 g (25–27 oz) empty (depending on caliber), the P239 has become popular in the United States as a concealed carry pistol. The included single-stack magazine has a capacity of 8 rounds (9×19mm) or 7 rounds (.357 SIG or .40 S&W). As of 2018 it has been discontinued in the US market.
In 2004, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) contracted with SIG-Sauer for the purchase of up to 65,000 pistols, among them DAO model .40 caliber P239s. The US Navy's Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) has purchased P239 DAKs in .40 caliber (along with P229 DAKs) to replace their aging 9mm M-11 pistols.
