So I made the mistake again of going to a gun store at lunch today. Been wanting a smaller gun to carry since it is freaking hot here already. 101 degrees today! Yikes and very humid, gotta love south Texas. Looked at a number of smaller guns and came away with this after looking at 3" 1911, PK380, LCP, Kahr, PPK & PPK/s etc. This one seemed the best balance of small size, shoot ability and the manual of arms of the 1911 which I normally carry some type of. The basic Sig 238, Nitron model with night sights. It's a small little thing to say the least. Here are some comparison pics with a 5" and a 4" 1911 for those who not seen this little guy in person. And the holster it came with, some "testing" ammo Have not shot it yet but early observations are: 1. The small size is clearly a win for CCW 2. Weight is around 15oz so that is nice as well 3. Clearly designed for CCW, well rounded with no sharp edges, the hammer recesses into the gun nicely when cocked. 4. You can loaded and unload the gun with the safety engaged, nice feature. 5. The sights while well proportioned (i.e. small) to the gun but have normal sized night sites inserts. This creates a very very nice and clear sight picture, in fact by far the best sight picture I have ever seen on a gun this size. 6. Slide lock/release is also larger than normal on this gun. Not so large as to cause an issue but very easy to engage with the thumb. Again a nice change from some guns this size. 7. The included holster is a nice bonus. With this clearly being a CCW it makes sense that the buyer need something to use until they find a more longterm holster. Thumbs up to Sig for adding this. 8. Steel, steel and more steel. Even the guide rod is steel. No offense but I like steel over those darn plastic guns...... The only thing I can speak negatively about is Sig only including 1 magazine. I think they could add $15 to the MSRP include 2 mags and call it a day. Anyways for a 1911 guy or girl looking for a small carry gun this seems like a very good option. Manual of arms is the same and the trigger is very 1911 like, it comes in at around 6-7lbs but that is fine on a gun like this IMO. I am looking forward to testing this out for reliability. Not crazy about the .380 in general but as a trade off for this size gun I think it is very workable. Gonna stick with FMJs for carry as I am not sure the 2.7" barrel is going to give enough velocity for JHPs. I paid $525 for it, not sure how that stacks up but seems fair to me. Anybody know what the average street price is on these? First time I have been in this gun shop but their prices on models I am more familiar with seemed fair. Thanks Wanna kill these ads?
