Sig P238

Not trying to talk you into anything different, but here's a cool site that comes in handy when trying to compare specs from different guns.

I had one and loved it. I carried in the pocket in my summer cargo shorts. Excellent, never had an issue.

I did sell it to get the P938 though. I went with the 9mm because I wanted more. That is what I carry most of the time.

Winter months M&P9c.

You will not go wrong with either.

I really really want the "pretty" one.....but I don't want to get it if it's going to FTF on me. The only other Sig I ever had was the Mosquito and it was nothing but an expensive paperweight. Terrible gun.

The LCP never FTF one time, but then, I could hardly stand to shoot it.

Who say's Mustang's aren't good looking? This one is one of the reissues of the old Series 80 Mustangs with some abalone grips. This is my "sunday suit" gun and I'll either pocket carry it with a Don Hume pocket holster (some of the suits don't have the waist-band room they once had) or IWB with a simple Tagua thumb break holster.

I like this gun so much that I gave it a nickname. I'll give you a hint...

If you still didn't get it here's another clue:

I call it "Blue Oyster Colt"

Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

I wanna add something to my last assessment on my p238 and reliability issues while pocket carrying. I had been keeping my p238 dry until Christmas when I got some of that weapon shield stuff. (Shameless endorsement incomingBig Grin) The lube pen I got has been an absolute wonder for its reliability. I add a drop on the slide rails, rack it a few times and voila! It's been 100% since. Doesn't seem to collect as much dirt, dust and lint as it normally did and the slide is always as smooth as butter.

LOVE this weapon shield stuff.

At this point my wife and I have had some experience with P238's and the biggest problem we have had is with the factory mags. We both really dislike the way the floorplates are on the standard mag. They're a little small as it is and you can't easily slam them home like I can like on the P226. I've noticed without the extended rubber floor plate they just don't give the same positive feedback feel of a larger handgun when inserting a mag. For people like my wife who don't really slam mags in like I do; the p238 mags will click into place and still have about 3/16th's sticking out of the bottom of the gun and not properly seat if you're not cognizant of it fairly easily. With the pinky extension you have a much better grip and slamming them home is much easier and less fiddly. If I were you I would pick up some extended mags right off the bat for that reason because that's not something you want to have to think about in a gun fight.

I can agree with that Emoticon. The factory mags fit flush in the mag well and you pretty much have to push it up with a single finger until it clicks into place. I carry mine with the 6 round mag already inserted and my backup is a 10 round mag so I really don't have an issue with it like this though. The 10 rounder is easy enough to slam home.

Rik, that's a pretty gun!

Thanks for the advice all! Hopefully after tax return time, I can re-read the thread and put it to use when I get my new gun. :-)

Of course the other issue is that we currently do not have a range membership, so the expense of the gun PLUS somewhere to actually test it out is going to be sort of a pain.

So, I read through this (instead of making a new thread) and the one thing I didn't see mentioned was how the trigger pull on the P238 was?

My wife is suffering from carpal tunnel, to the point where surgery is needed.
She picked up the P238 Edge at the LGS and fell in love.
My question is how is the trigger pull? It has to be night and day over the LCP. We dry fired it but I want to know how it is when loaded.
Any input is much appreciated.

Definitely way better than the LCP! It's single action so right there it is a shorter pull. And it's smooth. Obviously you have to put *some* pressure on it unless she would just prefer a .22... But I like this better than the LCP and my husband likes it better than his bodyguard.

I don't have a way to measure trigger pull weight but it's a little more than the Kimber's. It's short, crisp single action breaks clean but it's a little heavier than a normal 1911. If I were to guess it's probably around 6lbs. Not sure what Sigs website says it should be but there isn't any difference that I can tell between dry fire trigger pull vs loaded.

FWIW.
