P938 Condition One Carry or How do you ?

Hello,

Just wondering thoughts on IWB or APP carry of their P938 Cocked N locked , Condition One ?

Obviously no grip safety !

Have the safeties been reliable ? The trigger is not nearly as light as any 1911 I have owned, but is still single action.

Also what about deleting the left side safety ? Sig says it can only be done by the factory ?

I see Leather and Stuff makes some nice holsters with Thumb strap.

Thanks,

Wayne

This subject has been beaten to death in the past. In my opinion people get concerned about condition one (cocked and locked) for no good reason. I am much more comfortable carrying my p938 in condition one than I would be sticking my Glock 26 in my pocket with a round in the chamber.

as many times as the topic comes up, if you're carrying & don't have a round chambered, you may not have time to complete the task.

i carried a g3 g27 & would never consider it as as a pocket gun

I haven't shot one but does your pinky hang off the bottom?

I'm looking for a CCW but hate the pinky problem.

With the extended 7rnd mag I get all fingers on the grip

The 938 is a great little pistol, I've carried a colt defender 3" 1911 practically every day for several years, carrying cocked and locked never concerned me. The 938 is no different, however I do stay away from ambi safeties (just as a personal preference) as one is normally exposed and could have the potential to be inadvertently disengaged by bumping into something. Pay attention and there are no worries.

Just for the record, if you have a round in the chamber the Glock striker is about 3/4 "cocked". I'd also wager there are more negligent discharges with a Glock due to crappy holster choices than any 1911 being carried cocked and locked. Buy the proper gear and again, pay attention and there'll be no issues.

This has been hashed over numerous times, you'll find if you search.

In brief:

The P938 safety is rock solid, locking hammer back in a separate safety notch at the rear of the hammer as it cams hammer back a little so it is off the sear. Trigger has to be held back when hammer falls in order to unblock the firing pin block safety. This also prevents drop firing (or inertia firing).

Yes, the trigger is relatively heavy, it can be made smooth and as light as a custom 1911. As an experiment, I adjusted one of mine to below 2 lbs just to see if it could be done - I then bumped it back up to 3 lbs 5 oz.

If you are looking to delete the left side safety lever, I would say even the factory can't do that. If you want to delete the right side safety lever, then yes it can be done and, depending on your level of skill, preparation and patience, doesn't need to go to the factory.

When I carry my 938, I have a custom IWB kydex that protects the safety—I have no issue in carrying at level one. The 938 is a solid little pistol and as others have mentioned, trigger work can be done to make it lighter.

I carry condition one every day and no worries. The only trick is to get muscle memory to disengage the safety at draw stroke.

I carry in condition one in an IWB holster. The holster is a custom fit for the pistol, and covers the LH safety. Compared to the Colt Gold Cup I used to shoot the P938 safety is stiff. I have no fear that the safety will accidentally disengage.
+1 to what Gaius said above.

Why I thumb the safety (even though there isn't one) when drawing my DA/SA pistols.

Hi All thanks for responding. I know the subject in general has been beaten to death, especially in general concerning the 1911. This is not a 1911 and now that it has been around a few years, I wanted experienced opinions on the 938.

Again, thanks for the responses.

Sorry , yes right side. Are any new parts needed to do this ? Sig told me it could only be done by them ?

What holster are you referring to ?

Thanks, a better explanation of the trigger helps.
