Sig P938

Postby RImike » Fri Dec 05, 2014 2:29 am

Just acquired a Sig P938 for EDC. Initial impression has me very impressed. I can wait to bring it to the range and give it a workout. I ordered the Scorpion which came with with a 6 round flush and 7 round extended, OWB holster and lock.ImageImage

9mm, the p238 is the same firearm, just slightly smaller in .380

Both, summertime when I can't carry a fullsize, this will be primary.
In the winter when wearing bulkier clothes, this will be backup.

some people have reported feeding issues with the earlier ones, but I think they're mostly resolved at this point. Run a bunch of 124gr FMJ through it and carry some 124 or 147 +P JHPs (I get good results from Hornady's 135+P critical duty in 9mm, or 124gr +P gold dots), and it'll serve you well.

It's based on the colt mustang (well, the 238 is. Then the 938 is basically rechambered for 9mm) but not all of the parts interchange directly. Most people either love em or hate em, I wish you luck with it. Too small for my hands and I don't carry SAOs anymore.

I ordered this direct from Sig, so I knew it wasn't a firearm handled by gorillas at the LGS and racked a million times and dry fired. From what I could tell about the issues, most of it was due to QC. When I spoke to the woman at the Sig Store, she stated is was one of the nicest ones she had seen and that their gunsmith inspected it and gave it some special attention. (Have a close friend that works @ Sig, so that's why)

another tip to make sure it runs reliable, if the mags are brand new, load them up to full capacity and let them sit that way for a week or two.

They can suffer from some of the same teething issues as 1911s but I would imagine you don't have to worry about that. I'd recommend running a light grease on the rails as opposed to oil, and just a whisper of CLP on the feed ramp, at least at first.

On another note, be careful with that baby swing in the background since there is a safety recall on it. The reason is that it doesn't have shoulder straps and the baby can lean forward (when they get strong enough) and fall out (face first). You should probably be good for another couple of months until the baby try to lean forward, but it is something to keep in mind.

Thanks for the heads up, I will look into it.
