Looks good. I just sent mine in last week for the same thing. How long did you have to wait? They quoted me $150.00 including shipping.

Price and time

My was $154.95 with shipping, and it took 9 days. But I'm left handed and it works great.

Madmax,
Very nice!

I just picked up a new P238 sport12 and was thinking of sending mine to SIG for the ambi safety and feed ramp polishing.

Question, Is the safety still tight with the click sound?


"How about $15 and you pay the shipping." Hawgrider, that's a fair price grab them.
Thanks
SIGAR

[QUOTE=SIGAR;36562]Madmax,
Very nice!

I just picked up a new P238 sport12 and was thinking of sending mine to SIG for the ambi safety and feed ramp polishing.

My question is "Why do we have to send our P238s back to Sig for a feed ramp polishing??" That should have been done BEFORE the initial factory shipment.
I stripped down my 2012 late model P238 and using a magnifying glass saw that the factory milling on the feed ramp was done perpendicular to the feed ramp with many furrow grooves as to create a nonskid for the next round feed. I am a certified non-gunsmith with so far eighty break in rounds and four failure to load/jamb issues. I bought the Sig P238 for their compent gunsmith history, not their blacksmith subqualities. If you have polished the feed ramp, how did you go about it and what did you use for abrasives? Did the feed ramp get to where you would feel comfortable carrying CCW?
No fooling-the feed ramp looks like the face of a hand file.
