The above Extreme model shows the extended 7rd P938 magazine – it looks nearly identical to the P238 extended 7rd mag.

I do not yet have photos of the P938 SAS but I will be posting updates from the floor at SHOT Show ASAP.

P938 Press Release:

SIG SAUER® P938TM Packs 9mm Power Into P238®-sized Platform

The company’s smallest 9mm ever is based on one of its best-selling pistols

EXETER, NH (January 2012) — With the introduction of the P938, SIG SAUER now offers the ballistic advantage of the 9mm cartridge in a platform similar in size to the best-selling P238 pistol.

A single-action-only trigger, coupled with full-size SIGLITE® Night Sights makes the P938 handle like a much larger pistol, yet is still easy to carry concealed.

“As soon as the P238 was introduced, we began to see demand for a 9mm version,” said Ron Cohen, SIG SAUER President and Chief Executive Officer. “We wanted to maintain the P238 accuracy and reliability, while providing the extra punch of the larger caliber.”

With dimensions just slightly larger than its .380ACP counterpart, the P938 packs six plus one rounds of 9mm into an all-metal frame. The cocked-and-locked single-action trigger gives the P938 unmatched accuracy in a pistol its size.

Fans of the 1911 will find the thumb safety, magazine release and slide stop lever in familiar places. An ambidextrous safety makes the P938 easy for left- and right-handed shooters. An extended seven-round magazine will be available separately.

The most compact 9mm in the SIG SAUER product line, the P938 will be available in five configurations.

  • Rosewood: Features a Nitron®-coated stainless steel slide over a dark hard anodized alloy frame. Hogue® Rosewood Grips round out this package.
  • Blackwood: A natural stainless steel slide and black hard coat anodized alloy frame are paired with Hogue Blackwood grips.
  • Extreme: Following in the footsteps of other Extreme models, this P938 has a Nitron-coated stainless slide and black anodized frame. Hogue G-10 Piranha grips in black and grey provide maximum grip and a distinctive look.
  • SAS: The SIG Anti-Snag treatment removes all sharp edges and corners on the slide and frame. A natural stainless steel slide contrasts with the black hard coat anodized alloy frame and the stippled walnut grips.
  • Equinox: A polished Nitron two-tone slide is paired with a black hard coat anodized frame. Tru-Glo® front and SIGLITE rear sights and Hogue black Diamondwood grips complete this package.

    Can’t wait to see and compre the new Sig 938 with the Kimber “Solo” before making a decision. Hope reviews of each assist in explaining which will be the best.

    I have the P238 and think it is the best compact .380 on the market. Cannot wait to see the P938 when it hits the gun shops. Only wish they weren’t so pricey. Still paying on the P238. How to buy this without the wife finding out !!

    Larry,
    It is only $2.50 a day for one year. Take baloney sammiches for lunch every day and save what Mc D’s would have cost you.
    Besides it will be at least that long after they are released before the prices will come down to MSRP. Look at how it was when the P238 was released.

    Just let your wife buy a new Coach Purse and a pair of shoes, then she can’t complain about you buying the P938.

    looking for the extreme model does it have the rounded snagless finish?

  8. March 30th, 2012 at 10:49 | #8

    So far, none of the P938’s have shipped. I believe the SAS will have the rounded edges on the slide / frame.

    I was in the market for a ‘pocket pistol’. I reviewed the Ruger LC9 offering, but the P938 in comparison is top shelf from a raw material fabrication standpoint, and overall reputation. I hear all of you about the wife thing, but come on this is for protection, not to say look what I have (like a purse or some other bs lady item).

    I like the additional weight on the p238 HDW with a stainless frame. Are there any thoughts on doing the same with the p938?

    I just put my on layaway here in Puerto Rico, just got my ccw permit and plan to carry it as first choice, the price was over $700.00 but I got the 6 month to pay it. Love the file of it and it fit in the pocked

    The P238 has a Black Diamond Plate version, do any of you know if SIG will put a P938 out with the same? The only reason I haven’t got one yet is that I’m waiting for the release of the “Black Diamond”

  14. October 11th, 2012 at 08:58 | #14

    I haven’t heard anything from the factory to indicate that they will build a black diamond plate version and I would say it is unlikely. The current diamond plate models have not been popular at all and most are being discontinued…

    Is there any plans to relase the p938 the scorpion color pattern or the desert pattern ?

  16. December 12th, 2012 at 10:57 | #16

    I don’t know…. 2013 model list has been released and published and it is not on that list.

    I have loved my P238, but today I swapped it for a new P939 Rosewood. It fits my P238 El Paso pocket holster just fine and I think this is going to be my ideal carry pistol. I love the ambidexterous safety on the P938. I really feel better defended with a 9mm Para over a .380. Both pistols are jewels.

    @Mark
    Just purchased the P938 and I was in the market for the Kimber Solo. The feel of this gun in your hands is unbelievable. Not one jam shooting any 115 grain reloads. If you look at the reviews on the Kimber, you cannot use anything less than 124 grain. Most sights say the solo will jam every 3 shots if you use less than 115 grain in the kimber. Kimber even says not to use 115 grain in thier manual. So if you like shooting the cheap stuff at the range, Kimber is not such a good choice. I also have to say that I own several guns. I have a full size S&P 9 and the 938 has less recoil than that gun. I think that this gun is a wonderfull purchase and worth every penny for what it is. The only drawback is since its a newer weapon, its been real hard to find a holster made for it……

    I have one of each. 6 of one and half a dozen of the other . . . I prefer for CC the Sig (Equinox model) because of overall 1911 type feel of the gun. The Solo is great however and you would be hard pressed to find any other pocket gun, 9MM, and very accurate, than either one of these. I am not too crazy to have to load the Solo with hot loads (recommended strongly by Kimber) all the time though (my only complaint).
