carry pistol IWB

What I would like is a pistol that can be IWB carry so (40cal compact) with a hammer (decocker) function. At this time what I see available is striker fire type pistols. I was looking at the FN line but the hammer line are to big, also the SR40C is prefect but striker fire. So is there a make out there that I am missing, thank you for the help.

    You can go "old school" and lop off the hammer spur flush to the slide. Or at the very least "bob" it.

    What you are looking for is a Sig Sauer 239...can be had in 9mm, 40 S&W, and 357 Sig., and in a variety of finishes.

    EDIT 1

    My choice is the Sig P239. It's compact, accurate and reliable. It can be easily changed to 9MM, .40 S&W or .357 Sig with a simple barrel swap.


    Not exactly true. the 9mm, has a different head/rim size than the 40 S&W, 357 Sig. The extractor is not like that of the Glock17/22, that can accommodate either head size.

    There are TONS of second & third generation S&W autos (pre M&P style) with decockers. Many can be had for under $400 on the auction side. Several already have bobbed hammers too. You can even find new in box versiona that were never fired. The SIG is a great gun too. The Beretta PX Storm and H&K USP compacts also have decockers.

    Look at The S&W 4000 series in 40. Very flat for IWB carry [;)]

    Another vote for the Sig P-239. I have been carrying one for more than 10 years IWB old school "cop" carry - no holster, just a good leather belt slipped in behind my hip bone. Mine is a .40, but I have a .357 barrel as well. Very accurate and totally reliable pistol!

    There are any number of compact .40SW guns that have external hammers and decocking safeties:

    -Smith "number" autos
    -Beretta PX4-Storm (formerly 9000)
    -Sig 239
    -CZ RAMI with decocker
    -Ruger P series autos

    HK, FN, Taurus all also have models that fit.

    Walther P99 has an internal striker (with feelable cocking indicator), but uses a traditional DA/SA action with a decocker, so it functions basically like a hammered pistol.

    I'm sure there are others.
