pic related All the mags for both P238 and P938 that I saw are either 6 or 7 rounds. Nice guns, but it sucks to keep reloading at the range. Are there higher capacity mags for these pistols?
Get a P239 if you want to carry something that you'll enjoy shooting.
Sig lists P239 width as 1.2in and Glock lists G19 width as 1.18in....so now what?
When is sig going to make a single stack p224 that has decent weight distribution?
I own the pic you displayed P938 BRG and it is a dream to CC with out printing, shoots amazingly well, only downside is range reloading but it'll give your thumbs the workout they deserve!
Yes, absolutely love it. Carry it cocked n locked with 1 in the chamber & 7 in the mag. I had the P238 but decided to swap from .380 to 9mm just out of preference.
P226 owner here and I almost bought this over my P238/P938 but thankfully held one in person, I'm a smaller guy so this printed on me and I thankfully found the those 2.
>giving a shit about grip width when its the slide tucked into your pants that adds girth and the length of the grip that increases the odds of printing
>implying damage control when the pics posted speak for themselves
lol try harder
>it's thicker than a stock Glock 19
P239 is appreciably slimmer, duh.
>tfw you don't own a light field gun based on the remington 1858 action
it hurts to live
One thing about the promags, when you get one home, take it apart and get the massive amounts of oil and grease out of there, reapply thin layer.
They are so fucking greasy on the inside it's insane.

How do you carry it? I carry mine at 3 o'clock in Desantis Mini Scabbard, fits so comfortable I keep forgetting it's there and have to remind myself not to do anything stupid.
In winter If i'm not rocking a P226 in a shoulder holster I generally carry it in my coat pocket. During the warmer times of year I usually have an inside the waistband holster that I wear at 3'oclock as well. Only issue I have with my current holster is it retains really well but is a pain to draw. I'm 5'11 130lbs and it doesn't print slightly and is like I'm not wearing anything at all.
How small are you? Is that seriously the largest thing you can carry without printing?
I'm a hungry skeleton who can conceal the P239 with properly fitted jeans and a t-shirt with my Comp-Tac MTAC holster. I've carried much larger guns without issue.
I think the P938 is cool, but I'd prefer a Glock 43 at this point.
Unless my 1911 became my main go to defensive sidearm or home defense weapon, then I'd get a P938.
Holding it in person doesn't really give you a good sense of how it carries, but I respect your opinion. I just think if you want something that you can carry easily and thoroughly enjoy shooting, the P239 is the way to go.
It was a hand-me down from my roommate who wanted to get a 2 gun holster for his 1911 and g17. I don't use it any more just because it was setup for just the P226 itself and currently Its a range toy / under the pillow / in the glovebox gun with a Viridian X5L on it that I would have to take off to put in it.
Apparently the p238, kimber micro, and colt mustang mags are interchangeable.
My 238 is an absolute dream to shoot. I have a 2 finger grip with the 6+1 with average hands and the recoil is insanely low. The trigger is phenomenal not just for a pocket gun but in general, the reset is a bit soft but the feel is perfect. Follow up shots are very quick and the sights are standard SigLite Nite Sights. I got an absolute base 238 with the gray G10 grip panels, swapped them with kingswood, and ordered an aliengear IWB to try as oldfaithful stop selling kits.
My only complaints are the cost of magazines (25 for a 6 rd blues PROMAG), the lack of form fitted holsters (barring hybrid kydex) available, and a lack of upgrade parts.
I still chose this over the others I was looking into (PPK, S&W Bodyguard, Glock 42, Kahr .380) because the felt recoil is actually noticeably lower (due to a fantastically light aluminum frame but a nicely weighted slide), the fit and finish was above what the rest offered, and its plain good looking. It was also 499 before tax which is $100 higher than the competition, but it is definitely $100 nor pistol. Pic related, same gun different grips.
It still excites me because I bought pic related not too long ago and mags are expensive hard to find
Also going to chime in on this one, I love shooting my P938, and make a point to bring it out to the range every time I go. They're ridiculously accurate and easy to shoot for a gun so small, and recoil is very, very mild. I've actually got my eye out for backup gun matches in my area because I want every opportunity to shoot this gun for fun.
The best thing Sig did as far as design was not skimping on the sights like so many other companies do when building pocket guns. Give me full size sights any day, I've never had a problem with snagging them on the draw.
Thanks for the info. I'm looking for a good carry gun that is small enough yet pleasant to shoot and this may fit the bill.
The siglite sights also sweeten the deal even more. Do you have any problems with the ambi thumb safety biting into your hand on the other side?
I practice my draw pretty often, so I've gotten a bit of a callus on the side of my index knuckle from rubbing the ambi safety. It doesn't ding my hand when I'm shooting, but I tend to bump it when I'm going for a fast draw.
btw, your picture depicts the Equinox variety (for non-owners - the only difference with other models is the TruGlo front sight). Assuming it's yours, how do you like it in comparison to standard P938 night sights?
Not him, but I have the model with truglo TFO front sight. I liked them so much, I bought them for my shield.
Some people complain about the fiber optics falling out. Put a layer of clear epoxy into the sight to keep the fiber optic in place.
