New p938 ejector issue

Picked up my new P938 today. Went to field strip and clean and I could not take off the slide!!!! The ejector will not allow the slide to move forward. I depressed it with a piece of plastic and the slide comes off. I called Sig CS right away and they told me that this sometimes happens with the P938 and after a couple hundred rounds it should be okay. My friend has a P238 and never had the problem when new. Has anyone else experienced the problem and if so did it "fix" itself after shooting it? I plan to go to the range Friday and I will report back if it has any affect on ejections.

Thanks!

That did not happen with mine. The slide stop was a little difficult to remove. Learning to put the recoil spring back in was a learning curve.

I have a P238 and also have never experienced that specific problem. I did experience a couple of FTEs which locked the slide up (with a live round chambered and the slide not in battery). In both cases I {finally} was able get the slide in battery and the chambered round fired. The round count when this happened was around 200, and then again around 300. Both times, gun was dirty from having shot about 100 rounds. Hasn't happened since and I've shot many hundreds more. I say this because I do believe these models need to be well broken in. Sig may say a 'couple hundred' rounds but I'd advocate you shoot at least 500 rounds before you trust your life to it (assuming it's a carry gun). These guns DO need to be well broken in. Just my two cents. YMMV

I keep q-tips and gun oil in my range bag. And FTF and I swab the feed ramp, ejector and breech face out and keep shooting. I learned this early on with 2 938s and 2 238s between my wife and me.

Mine did the same thing. It will loosen up. Some lube on the ejector will help. Also, I use a firm motion getting it off the frame. It doesn't just slide right off.

Hope this helps.

I just bout my P938 about a week ago and when I was disassembling it for the first time. The slide was stiff to slide off. After oiling it, it seems to get easier. Headed to the range for the first time with this gun and will bring some q tips with me now.

I had the same issue. Once I got the slide off, I oiled the ejector and manually depressed it several times to work the oil in and loosen it up. I have not had any issues since.

I reported positive things following my first range trip. Put 175 rounds thru it. Field stripped and the slide came right off without having to lower the ejector to get it off. I think the range trip loosened it up!!! Will find out on the next trip.
