    Sig P 938 Nightmare...
    All in all... it's a pretty decent shooter...
    I'm trying to work up the courage to appendix carry it...lol
    It's pretty " SNAPPY" on the recoil but is accurate and it's a 9mm ..

    I'm pretty happy with mine. I sent it off to Rob Burke for a flat trigger and some other goodies to make it mine. I didn't like the ambi safety so mine had a strong side only out of a 238. Good little shooters with familiar controls.

    These are good little shooters. I had one, but due to my unfortunately XXL hands and a pronounced thumbs-forward grip, I had to trade it off lest I shoot the end of my thumb off, LOL.

    Good luck with it!

    It’s one of the best small guns ever devised. Light and compact with the shooting characteristics of a mid size.

    What’s it “born on” date? You might want to check if it’s got the latest main spring housing design (Gen 2) and proper strength magazine release spring. Those are two changes Sig has made to that model over the last couple of years. While Sig didn’t issue official recall notices, I believe they will perform the upgrades w/o cost to you. Call their customer service.... especially if you plan to conceal carry with it. You can also search the Sig forum for pics of the old and new style MSH design.

    I’ve got the ‘9mm Short’ version (aka, 380ACP) of that pistol, the P238. They’re good cc pieces.

    I like mine for pocket carry. I had to give up plastic guns for a while due to my injury and bout this gem to replace them.

    once caveat--NEVER, EVER--even accidentally push the thumb safety UP when field stripping and cleaning.. the detent spring and cap launch an dget lost. otherwise it is a great pick up

    enjoy

    Speaking of springs going missing, you may want to order a spare ‘Slide Stop Spring’. That’s the little bent wire that rests under the Slide Stop pin. The bend angles in that spring are fairly critical and if it ever drops out when field stripping, it’s easy to loose (especially at the range). So it wouldn’t hurt to have one in reserve.

    It took a few trips to the range for me to like the 938. It's become one of my best pocket guns.
