I really like my P938.

My LGS (Georgia Gun Store) usually has a few new P938's for <$600. They ship if you're interested.

I bought mine a month or two after it first came out. It has the dreaded failure to fire issue until Sig. fixed it by changing the ejector. Now it shoot flawlessly. I also had to dremel the trigger surface because the serrated part will eventually hurt your finger after 100 rounds.

It also does not make sense getting the P238 instead of the P938 , since the 380 ammo is more expensive than the 9mm.
$10-13 vs $18-20 for 50 rounds. Those prices were before the panic buying started after the Sandy Hook massacre.

I bought mine for $787 (close to $800) out the door i think with extra 7 round magazine. This is the extreme version, the only version that comes with an extra 7 round magazine. Remember, the extra 7 rounds magazine cost around $70+ extra if you buy the other P938 version.

For brand new Extreme P938 version, $699 is pretty good price!

You'll going to love the P938 than the P238 , due to longer thicker hand grip and ambidextrous trigger lock.

Btw, with the P938, if you decided not to carry one round in the chamber, you can leave the trigger unlock and still can rack the slide to chamber the round. You can also rack the slide and unchamber a hot round even when the trigger is locked. Pretty cool stuff for a single action gun!

Thanks for your response.

I visited my LGS today to look at the P938, but somehow I got waaay off track. Instead of buying the Sig, I walked out the door with a new Ruger SP101 4" in .22 cal and an Iver Johnson .410 single shot shotgun. How's that for mission divergence?

I haven't owned a .22 handgun since I sold my Colt Woodsman for college cash decades ago. The old Iver Johnson is in very good condition considering its age, and I don't see many old guns in .410. Both of these guns will be good to teach 5 little granddaughters about shooting. This is a better outcome than my original shopping mission.

That's neat! I used to own a Ruger LCR 357 and it was a blast to shoot! With so many random mass shooting nowadays, I decided to sell it and bought 2 guns with at least more than 5 rounds capacity and 7+ rounds magazine backup and a quick reloading capability. So I ended up with P938 6 rounds and 7 rounds magazine backup (Summer carry) and XDs 45 6rounds with 8 rounds magazine backup. ( Winter carry)

I had a Sig522. 22LR and I found it boring to shoot, but great for trainning young shooters. I ended up selling the rifle.

If that is P938 Extreme, that is a great price! Extreme model normally comes with free 7 round mag.

I think I bought mine close to $800 out the door that time.

The picture they have is the rubber grip model, not the Extreme. It says "Sig Sports 13 938" and says specifically that it comes with 2 mags but doesn't say what kind. I hear of prices like yours and just wanted people to be aware of this deal. I would post a link but I'm on my phone.
