You will need the P238 thumb safety and hammer pin to do the conversion. You can simply remove the right side safety lever, but that leaves the stub of the P938 hammer pin sticking out of the right side of the frame.

Some folks have done the conversion themselves while others have sent it in to SIG. Your choice.

In my opinion you MUST carry with a round in the chamber. I have carried the 938 pocket style for years and have had only one instance where I had found the safety to become disengaged. Figured the right side safety must have been moved by something that bumped into me.It didn't bother me too much given it was such a rare occasion and I trust the trigger system in it to not fire unless manipulated. Regardless of what you choose you must practice practice practice.

Condition 1 holsters

Leather and Stuff does make some nice holsters for the P938. I just received mine last week. It's designed for condition one carry, the way the P938 was made to be carried. The owner of Leather and Stuff is very good to work with, very responsive and does fabulous work. (yes, I'm a lefty)

I also am a lefty and this looks awesome! I just have a concern about the belt loop. Being leather, wouldn't it stretch and get floppy over time??

Dickeydo, I'm not sure about that since I've only had mine less than two weeks now, but so far no sign of stretching or movement. My belt is very thick leather and it's 1Ĺ" wide. I chose the belt loop style because I ride motorcycles and I wanted to make sure that the holster stayed put. That being said, when ordering "Leather and Stuff" gives you the option of belt clips as well. In fact, they offer several options. They have a pretty nice website, if you have the chance look them up.

I too had the safety disengaged only once. A few days after I got it I was wearing it in a owb holster and brushed against a door jam in the house, disengaging it. It never happened again but I've always carried it in a IWB kydex holster since.

I always carry it in condition one and have never felt uneasy doing it.

I think I got my Sig p238 in 2009. I carry it nearly daily either as primary weapon or backup. My safety has never come off. only issue I have ever had was it falling out of my pocket when seated. Started in a Galco pocket holster. Worked for years, then stopped retaining it in my pocket, so I switched to a Desantis Nemesis. same thing, so I switched to the DeSantis Superfly. It has a velcro panel that is meant to hide the print. I detached the velcro and raised the flap up a little bit on the holster so that it creates a tiny lip and gives a little +1 insurance if it slips out or if I sit with my leg crossed on a sofa where the weapon is actually pointed downward when I sit down. Problem solved (so far).

Are the sig 238 and 938 drop safe? Will a round go off if there is a round in the chamber and if the pistols are accidentally dropped?

Not with the Safety on. Now, you can load some snap caps in yours to test it if you want to...I've not heard of this type of discharge. I CCW'd my 938 Scorpion on and off the last few years in Cond1 without issues.

They are drop safe. The guns will not fire unless the triggers are depressed...

Besides the safety, there is the firing pin block. This prevents the firing pin from moving forward even if struck by the hammer. Only when the trigger is pulled will it be released. Note that the extractor moves down when the trigger is pulled. This releases the firing pin block .
