I have found excellent products from 'multiholsters.com'. I have a IWB holster from them for all my subcompact pistols. I in addition have their kydex pocket holster for my p238. I think they are some of the most well thought out pieces I've come across. Truly just like Goldilocks with the baby bear..not too much, not too little...juuust right.

I own 8 of their holsters. Love em. I am neither related nor do I work for them for the record

Sig Sauer P938 custom Kydex holsters by MULTI HOLSTERS - YouTube

p238 holsters will not fit, the 938 slide is both thicker and longer. I have about 4 different holsters for my 238, my 938 doesnt have a prayer getting into any of them and my p238 is the HDW which might be slightly thicker than the earlier models with alloy frames.

938 holster options

I am using the sig pocket holster listed for P238, but it works fine with my
P938. I have a Galco IWB for the P238, and it works fine too.

I even moved my P238 Crimson Trace over to the P938 and works fine too.

I think the only real difference is in the slide length.

Having a somewhat slow day so I thought I'd post these pics up. Sorry, my cell phones camera quality is dismal but it's the best I can do right now. Just a few pics of the 238 and 938 slide widths and pistols holstered in the 'multiholster' kydex holster.











I cant speak for the models I do not have, but these two I own (p238 HDW and p938 Extreme), the slide on the 938 is thicker, not by much at all but it is.

Nice pics and very good comparison.
Thanks for your efforts!

I know that there's some members with this relatively new model.... What did you find/like in terms of holsters.
Had heard some say any 238 holster will work and others say no.
Thanks,

I already had this IWB holster so I just ordered the kydex for my 938.
Great holster, kydex pieces are cheaper than having to order a whole other holster for each gun you own, 6 screws and your set up for the gun you want to carry.

Pocket and IWB holsters

The GALCO PRO460 fits the 938 nicely for front pocket cary.

DeSantis advertises the Tuck-This II IWB holster for the 938. Does not work! Front sight drags on the inside top of the holster - when told about this DeSantis response was - gee, we tried one with a mock up gun and it seemed fine. I suspect the mock up did not have a front sight with sharp corners. It is now back at DeSantis for "evaluation". I will add a follow-up note if they have anything useful to add.

Cross Breed mini-tuck model for the 238 fits the 938 just fine. Note that the 938 is just enough wider than the 238 that many holsters for the 238 do not work for the 938 but some more compliant ones do - like the Cross Breed.

The HolsterPro 577 I bought for my 238 easily streched to accomodate the 938 with an overnight sleep-together with a freezer bag on the gun. But holsterPro now shows 938 models which are no-doubt right sized out of the box.

I bought a DM Bullard IWB made for the 938 it's a hight quality piece I'm very pleased with it. I also use a desantis pancake style (was for my kahr k9) all good!

The 238s have two different slide widths with the newer models being wider. I think a 938 will fit in any 238 leather holster as long as the muzzle end is open. Might have to wet the leather and shove the 938 in wrapped in a plastic bag for overnight to get it to fit well. I did this with my 938 to a 238 OWB pancake holster.

By far the most comfortable one I have found, three versions, I have the original, neoprene sandwiched between suede (against the body) and soft leather for the gun side. SUPER comfortable, reviews on you tube, here is their website; SIG SAUER

^^^^Scroll to the bottom to see the one I use, VERY comfortable and a perfect fit for almost all of sig models. Re holster is easiest by removing the holster due to the soft stretch "pouch". I don't draw and reholster often, so its no problem. If you did you could get the kydex model. Here is the you tube link for a 238, they do have 938 models;
