Where can I get this SIG.... and my new P938 Extreme

So on Thursday I bought myself a P938 Extreme. I have been holding out for years. Finally after shooting several owned by friends and actually selling and handling not only P938's but every other small handgun imaginable I finally broke down and bought a 938.

I've owned a Ruger LC9 hammer version. It was my father in laws pistol I inherited when he passed. He never fired it, if he did it was a mags worth. He had parkinsons so the gun saw no use. I put 2-3 mags worth of ammo through it and sold it. Hated it, glad to get it gone. I've got a Shield 9 and a Kahr MK9 as well. I have shot, although not extensively a Glock 43.

The P938 is easily the easiest shooting pocket sized 9mm I have fired to date. I took it to the range yesterday, Friday, and had about 45 minutes before they shut down for the evening. I fired 165 trouble free round through it as fast as I could load the 2 mags it came with. 100 115gr FMJ(my reloads) The other 65 rounds were a mix of 124 and 147 grain Federal HST standard pressure and some Hornady Critical Duty I've had sitting on a shelf for a while. Not a single hiccup with this gun or any of the ammo. At 7 yards I can easily keep all rounds in a 2" circle.

Is this mini 9 a fistful? Yes but I know this. It is the most controllable pocket 9 I've owned or shot. I think Sig has it right with this pistol and I'm glad you all beta tested them for 2-3 years so they got all the kinks worked out. My pistol was made Aug 1 2016.

Now, on to the where can I get this, because I want one. And I want it now.



For the love of Pete, Sig Sauer, give us the ALL STEEL version of the P938. It's been in your catalog in 2015 and now 2016 and it is time you quit teasing us and get the thing to market. I swore I wasn't going to buy a P938 until you made the all stainless one. So I broke down, you got my money now you can put out the one pictured above and other all steel versions next month. People want 'em, MAKE 'EM!.. We don't need any more purple and rainbow finishes, we need STEEL. I want STEEL! Git er done....please!

One other thing you can do Sig. Quit putting a gosh dang ambi safety on every 938 made. I hate it, I don't want it and I hate that I have to spend $20 more on parts to make the gun like it should have been made to start with.

Yes, Sig. Make a Sig P938 HD! I'll buy one immediately. Then I'll probably buy another one!

You would probably have better luck placing a saddle on a unicorn then finding a single sided safety 938 HD out there in the wild. Just sayin'

The only place I have seen them is in the 2015 catalog. And again in the 2016 catalog. They did the same thing with the Tacops and Nightmare chambered in 357-announced it and then nothing for a couple years. The 1911's chambered in 357 Sig finally did come to market but I had lost interest and bought a couple other pistols in the meantime.

What exactly do you do to make it a left side safety only? Is that easy and does it void Sig's warranty?

You call Sig and buy a P238 single side safety and hammer pin.

Part Numbers:

1200788-R - THUMB SAFETY, 238, BLK - $16.00
1200907-R - HAMMER PIVOT PIN, 238, BLK - $4.00

If you need something other than black I'm sure the part numbers are different.

Yes the swap is simple. It doesn't void the warranty.

Why PVD Nickel coat a SS gun? Makes no sense to me.

Yes I would much prefer just the plain stainless, bead blasted finish but I'll take what I can get. They make the same thing, nickel PVD, on the P238HD. Also, the Molon Labe P238HD has the PVD finish.

I thought the same thing about the 238HDN...till I saw one. I bought it. I'll take a 938HD in any configuration they see fit to issue it in. A very small, compact, all steel 9mm would be a grail gun. Beginning to lean toward an MK9 but would vastly prefer Hammer-fired SA cocked and locked.

I've got an MK9. It's a nice well made gun but I can't get used to the trigger. I do not shoot it anywhere near as well as I shoot my new 938. MK9 trigger is just long and it breaks nearly at the frame. It's like you pull and pull and pull and finally.....bang. I'm just used to single action I guess. Short and crisp.

Thanks for the feedback, davcar45. I needed a good slap. I'll wait a bit longer for the 938HD. In the likely event the (likely) event it doesn't appear, I'll opt for the same Extreme model you selected.
