P229 is larger, has a double-stack magazine, usually has a rail these days.

P239, no rail, single-stack magazine, smaller.

They operate about the same with DA/SA and decocker, and both come in either 9mm. .357 SIG, and .40 S&W.

I had a 239, and it was just about the same size as my P225, for concealment purposes.

Both pistols are awsome p239 is a smaller barrel single stack p229 is a little bigger and double stack mag I actually just picked up both pistols and I really like the p239 it fits my hand perfect can't go wrong with any of those two

Have both. 239 is way thinner. Rounded trigger guard is nice for ccw. It's only 8+1 or less in .40.
229 is awesome. 10+1 or 12+1 .40 rebuild kits if you had mags. (13+ i think in 9mm)
both great shooters.
Just different. Get both :)

You guys think the 229R Equinox is worth the extra money?

I had the same question regarding the Equinox finish--had some good feedback in this thread: Sig Equinox - Thoughts? (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=260930)
