Sig Sauer P938

November 21st, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I just posted our new model list showing the 2012 additions to Sig Sauer’s line.

One of the most notable addition to the line is the P938. I just got a bit more info and the name pretty much gives it away.

The P938 is going to be very similar to the P238 but slightly larger and chambered in 9mm. This pistol will have an aluminum frame, stainless slide, night sights, and a 6rd magazine capacity. As soon as we have photos we’ll post them. We are unsure when shipments will begin but we’ll have them on order ASAP.

The models are:

P938 ROSEWOOD, Black Nitron Finish, SLITE Night Sights, Rosewood Grips, Ambi Safety

P938 BLACKWOOD, Two-Tone, SLITE Night Sights, Blackwood Grips, Ambi Safety

P938 EXTREME, Black Nitron Finish, SLITE Night Sights, Hogue Extreme G10 Grips, Ambi Safety, 7rd Magazine

P938 EQUINOX, Two-Tone Polished Nitron Finish, TRUGLO / SIGLITE Night Sights, Blackwood Grips, Ambi Safety

P938 SAS, Two-Tone, Dehorning, SLITE Night Sights, Brown Goncalo Checkered Wood Grips, Ambi Safety

    Can barely wait….was about to buy a Diamondback DB9 or a Ket-Tec PF-9. Let’s see how long the wait will be for the P938. Also would be nice if Crimson Trace made a laser (like the 1911 versions) rather than that gaudy laser that hangs under the front. รถ

    @Pace – i’ve been dying for a 1911 style (with the laser on the grip plate) for the P238 for some time now, even emailed them suggesting it, but no luck. i have a crossbreed minituck IWB holster that i absolutely love, but i hate the idea of having 2 separate holsters based on whether or not i want to take my laser with me. the grip style safety would solve that issue, and look a hell of a lot better in the process.

    @John – I know what U mean! You would think if CT can makes “grip plate lasers” for the Walther PPK/S, compact 1911, Sig P230/232, NA Guardian and the tiny Beretta Tomcat & Bobcat….well, what can I say. CT needs more input from p238 owners.

    Will the new P938 be DA/SA? Have safety/de-cocker?
    I want one!
    I had a Kimber Solo, beautiful little pistol but could not trust it. Returned it after the third repair trip back to Kimber.

    I understand the P938 will be SAO – like the P238. It will have a thumb safety.

    I hope they make at least one model with RH only safety and the same model with a LH only safety (nitron/rosewood if I had a vote).

    I have a P238. Wonderful little pistol. Great sights, best trigger on a micro .380, perfect size, only micro .380 that’s actually plesant to shoot, reliable as gravity, eats everything I feed it, “and” it can be loaded, unloaded, and cleared with the safety on which is a huge feature in my opinion. I also have an LCP but only carry it if there is no possible way to conceal the P238.

    I’m willing to carry the P238 cocked and locked with out a grip safety because the RH only safety is protected by being next to the holster extension or against the inside of my pocket with little relative motion during pocket carry. It’s a fact that concealed carry guns bump into things, often with enough force to move an exposed safety. Cocked and locked with an ambi safety and no grip safety isn’t something I’m comfortable with.

    Given my total satisfaction with the P238 I am really really looking forward to the P938 – I’d love a P238 grown to include “just” enough meat to make it a 9mmP but not enough to also make it a .40 S&W. 6 round magazine is perfect. I’d also love an all stainless version – that is a 9mm version of the P238HDW. That said, if it is only available with an ambi safety I’d not feel so comfortable.

    I’d also rather see RH and LH versions of the P238 than ambi versions.

    I realize one doesn’t have their finger on the trigger, and my Glock doesn’t have a safety, but it also doesn’t have a SA trigger, and concealed carry guns are handled and carried in a countless variety of conditions and holsters, so having the safety “on” when it’s supposed to be “on” is important.

    I have no experience carrying. I had the Kimber Solo which I really liked except it had too many problems and returned it after 6 months. I look forward to the P938 and will probably buy it. Being inexperienced, I may not carry with a round in the chamber. I prefer the magazine hold 7 rounds. It adds a little length to the grip but still not enough for full three finger grip. I also prefer a safety and a smooth trigger. Don’t like the long trigger pull in lieu of safety

    I strongly urge you to carry with one round chambered as soon you can. In a good holster, kydex or leather, the trigger can’t be pulled. Control your finger when unholstering/drawing or reholstering and you are safe even if the thumb safety gets dislodged. My P238 safety has never changed position while I carried it.

    I will wait to see if it is safe to carry the P938 in condition 1 due to the ambi safety. I agree that the P238 is very safe to carry in condition 1. I use a Desantis Nemesis and the P938 should fit in the same holster

    im liking it plenty but holding off till a back strap safety is added. same with the p238. heck, OMC…AMT did it back in the mid 1970’s; Sig can do it. i can not trust the 1911 platform with out the palm safety. but i’ll pick up on the new ultra 3.3″ duo tone 45acp this week.

    Was going to buy a P-238 but decided the caliber was to small. Thus, started looking at Kimber’s SOLO today then, I learned of the P-938 and I’m back to square one. Keep up the good info regarding this new Sig as I hope to be one of the fist to own one.

    I hope and pray they will be available soon. I love my p238 and seriously expect the 9mm will be equally as nice. Light weight, concealable, accurate and reliable.

    I think people will be very happy with p938. Being in the military for 20 years and loving 1911 style pistols and despising “plastic pistols”,I welcome the new p938 to the market. If it performs anything like it’s “little brother” Amen to that Brothers-in-arms

    will it come with a holster like the 938? Is two mags too much to hope for?

  17. February 21st, 2012 at 12:36 | #17

    Hi, we do not yet know what will be included – it is likely that there will be one mag.

    Sure would like to see one. Gun ownership, use and respect are things handed down to the next generation. My 1908 colt 380 is still favorite. The 938’s alum. frame is unfortunate. Even though the colt is .25″ thinner this 938 still has a petitte profile. Can’t imagine that a steel frame in this palm pistol could ammount to too many oz.

    This is going to be the greatest back up carry pistol ever made. However i sure wish they would produce one that is right hand saftey only so it has less chance of comming off safe in my pocket or when positioning the pistol in my inside belt holster.

    I do not believe that Sig has shipped more than just a few. I’m waiting for a confirmation tomorrow. Apparently some started shipping and then they put a hold on all of them… I assume that means one of two things… They weren’t supposed to ship and some slipped out by mistake or there is something else wrong. The SIG50’s were delayed for a few weeks because they were waiting on instruction manuals (so I’m told by my rep). It could be a similar situation.

    I just picked up the P938 Extreme at my local dealer and I Love it!

    Handled one today at a Dallas area Academy Sporting goods store. Great feel to it. Looks great too. But at almost twice the price of a Ruger LC9… gonna have to shoot both before I make a final decision.
