I picked up my P238 this afternoon. Brought it home and wiped off the grease. I am amazed at how easy the magazines loaded, much easier than my 9mm pistols. I plan to get to the range over the weekend and see how it goes.

Shot about 60 rounds of both FMJ and Hollow Points. The first 7 round magazine had the last two rounds that did not chamber, I think I may not have had it fully engaged. After that everything worked well.

My trigger finger got a bit sore toward the end. I also fired about 50 rounds with my 9mm pistol. Has anyone else had some finger soreness with the trigger on the P238?

I had finger soreness with my P938. Not so much with the P238. Decided to replace the triggers on both guns with smooth Tillamook triggers. Trigers

I just bought a 938 yesterday and stripped cleaned and oiled. I did not have a problem with the guide rod and spring. The slide lock on the other hand was a little challenge until I looked at a video on youtube. Looking forward to shooting this new pocket carry.

I have not had any problem, but I am interested in where does the soreness occur?

Hey louchia, I got my P938 back from Sig and finally made a tool like you made. It works great. Thanks for the idea. I also sprayed it with Flex Seal, the as seen on TV stuff. Will be a nice addition to my cleaning kit for reassembly.

Thank you for the comment. Glad I was able to help.

In my case it occurs on the bottom inside of the trigger finger. I also had a similar issue with a 9mm Ruger. I have made a 2nd trip to the range with this gun and fired about 60 rounds. I still fell some discomfort but it is tolerable.
