P938 SAS Questions

All,
I have a P938 Nightmare that I may be able to trade out for a P938 SAS. My Nightmare has been back to Sig twice. Is it smart to stick with the 938 at all? The SAS version looks rounded and be better to conseal. Reading the threads it seems like there may be a difference in the various models or is it just that there are more Nightmares out there(no pun intended) or is it a total crapshoot. I really like the way the 938 shoots, I've put Hogue grips on the Nightmare and have two extended mags. Feels great in my hand and is pretty accurate for me. Please share your thoughts.

Thanks,
Paul

Mine is a real good shooter with ZERO mechanical problems and completely broken in with high quality Winchester LE which would save you at least $200. It is a Blackwood model made in late Nov. 12. Take the SAS and I'll trade you mine Straight up! BTW I have owned mine just a little over a month inspected,cleaned, oiled and greased after each range trip. I can send target shots showing Zero Wind-age drift at 15yds, this bad boy can SHOOT! Boy would I take the SAS!

I think I would question why the other party is willing to trade straight up. i.e. What is wrong with their SAS?

The 938 born date is more important than model. If the sas is post October most likely no problem. If pre Oct. or you have a problem, Sig will back it up.
My thought is go for it, and don't fret the small stuff.

Update: SAS Arrived

My P938 SAS arrived on 7 Mar, the date on the box is 5 Mar same as the ship date. What a good looking gun I had Hogue grips for the Nightmare but it seems almost blasphemous to remove those wood grips! I will not have a chance to fire it for a few days and its killing me. The LGS who did the paperwork said he hasn't seen a gun come in this clean(no preservative at all, just lube). I put a few snap caps in it and the trigger feels way much better than my recollection of the Nightmare. Smooth heavy take up then click. Trigger job ??? I want to say the Nightmare was like dragging a stick on a new asphalt road.

I was only able to round up three boxes of 115 gr ammo and don't think I can find anything else any time soon. I cant wait to get to the range. I really want to run factory ammo through it for the first 300-400 rounds but market conditions may dictate otherwise. Right now I'm cautiously optimistic. More to come.

Dang, what a deal! I had a couple ftes in the first few hundred round, but other than that, nothing. Otherwise, I would be all over sig. And... if they offered that... no brainer! That's some good customer service. What was wrong with the nightmare? Just curious.

Do you know the born date on both? The nightmere and extreme were the first models out and all available through the summer of trials. Later people reported getting equinox and others with a born date from summer, even though they purchased well into fall & december. I have heard of Sig trading out problem guns they couldn't get going right.

Southern yankee has been talking up his 938 for awhile now. I'm sure he has a good one. The 938 is a real nice carry when you have a keeper.

Its a deal but I wish I didn't have to go through that. The day I bought the gun at round 55-60 somewhere in there half of the extractor claw broke off. Returned to Sig for repair, then again at about 250 +/- 10 the bottom half of the extractor claw broke off again. Returned to Sig and had the gun back in about 8 days with a new extractor and an explanation that it was the ammo. I had discussed the ammo with CS prior to shipping to Sig the second time and knew ahead of time it was not ammo induced. Thats when the phone calls started. And long story short, here we are.

Not sure whether you all can tell but I REALLY want this one to be a keeper.

When the Nightmare was shooting it was really nice. Hogue grips and extended mag make a world of difference.

At 7yds I was consistently 1-2 inches left of center and was working on that. I thought it was the gun but I tried lefty and was right in the bull. I assume it has to be me.

What a Drag! I see what people write and it is so removed from my experience with my Blackwood that I have such a hard time reconciling the polar extremes of mine vs. others. I guess I really am a lucky dog especially since my gun got to me by accident, I was supposed to get a Equinox but kept this. Who knows what heartache I may have been spared?
