If I recall correctly, my P938 Blackwood was manufactured in December, 2015.
Got an interesting offer from Sig via email today offering a $115 value concealed carry package for 238/938 for $75. Interesting because it offered a DeSantis pocket holster and TWO 7 round mags. Hmmmmm.

Tempting, but I'd rather just have the mags for 30 bucks a piece instead of sticking me with a holster I don't need and will then have to try and sell.

Sounds like a bad mag. I've got a few 7 round ones and they have all been flawless and are what I typically carry.

I figure it's worth my time and trouble and even my responsibility as a consumer to push this problem back to SIG for repair on their dime. The message to them being "Build it right or pay for the repair. Your choice."

The problem with my 7 round mag was that it started dropping when I fired the gun. It didn't do it at first but started doing it a few months after I purchased it. It didn't drop every shot but enough that I couldn't trust it. I did phone SIG but they wanted me to send the gun in. No thanks. Like I said, it just isn't worth the time and trouble whenever (a) I shoot better with the six round mags, (b) the six round mags offer better concealment and (c) most importantly, I have never had either of my six round mags drop or cause any type of malfunction.

Only 100 voted so that can be undoubtedly skewed, but I have to admit the numbers don't match what my perception of the P938 was. After it failed on me I thought I maybe just bought a semi-expensive paperweight. But the stats give me hope. Thanks for the reply's folks!

I just ordered my 3rd P938. I love this little gun. I have an Equinox and BRG right now and just ordered an SAS. It is so light I forget I am carrying it concealed. I have 7 and mags for both and have not had a problem yet. Both guns have a low round count of about 250 each. I have checked the guide and have not seen it backing out or even being loose. I will have to keep an eye on that. I am searching right now for a good IWB holster. That can be overwhelming because there are so many and personal preference plays a big part. All in all I am very satisfied with them.

I started out with a P238 Equinox that I carried daily for over 10 years. Then a few years back I purchased a 938 Equinox and have been carrying it since it was broken in with 350+ rounds. I lost one retaining rod at the range in the break in period. Sig had another one at my door in 3 days. The only problem I have encountered with it.
I have been using Remora holsters with both guns. I have tried many other holsters but always go back to the Remoras. I carried the P-238 in one for 10+ years and it looks like new.

Well I have to say I love my P938 SAS. It went back to Sig for numerous issues but looks like they got them all sorted first try. I've put 300 rounds through it so far and I'm very pleased. So initially not the happiest camper. But its like the old school 'Swedish Bikini Team' just showed up at my camp sight looking for a place to crash.......that'll work

Only thing I had was grip screws coming loose. Took care of that. I really enjoy shooting this gun. It is also my carry weapon,WR

I really like the P938, but did have early issues with magazines dropping from the frame during firing. SIG had me send it in, they replaced the mag release and had it back to me in about a week--fixed. About 800 rounds later it continues to run without a hitch. If you want small, thin and light in a 9mm, I think the P938 is hard to beat.

Flawless since day one with everything I've fed it. It's a fine firearm for what it is.
