personally (as one who's 30 Nov '12 won't eject 115gr ammo) I think the newer guns are having less problems - but - I think too that it's a hit and miss sorta thing

perhaps someone (other than me) would care to start a poll that would ask something like "problem" or "no problems"

and maybe the responders could include their gun's dob

otherwise, it's an ideal gun for it's intended purpose (just gotta be able to rely on it !) - good luck

I'm afraid you're not going to get the "full poop", in one thread. Try a search, and read all the posts for the past 6 months, or so, and then you will have a good idea.

I think Southern Yankee did a poll a couple months ago, and 75% worked fine. But, then how many of the 38000+ (my own estimate) owners participated? A very small percentage.

Mine works fine.

They came out last spring and many though the summer had problems. Mine was 8/1/12
As with the 238 before it, Sig has learned and honed it down. The ones since late fall are much improved.
If you haven't yet, I recommend the 938 tracking thread. It's a long read, but is a real history of the year of learning.

No problems at all. All I have shot in mine is 115 grain and that's what was giving people fits. Made in Jan. 2013

Both mine and my wifes so far has no hickups. DOB's = Feb. '13 and March '13.
Each has only had 25 rounds of the 124 gr put through them (first breakin period), and the rest of the rounds has been 115 gr. (apprx. 100-150 rounds each).

Both are edc's.

I think the old adage applies here: If you make someone happy, they'll tell ten people. If you make someone mad (or disappointed), they'll tell ten people, who'll tell ten people who'll tell ten people...". Unhappy consumers tend to be very loud and their representation way over weighted. I'm sure that most guns were fine. That is not to minimize peoples disappointment or frustration in dealing with SIG who was slow to get on front of the problems. But, I am convinced the overall product is not nearly as bad as some would have others believe. For my friends who would continue to beat the proverbial "Dead Dog" If Sig corrected or is correcting your issues, should that not be enough? If they have not then shame on them! But in everything I have read to date, SIG has seemed to be willing to make things right. A company that tries to treat the customer right, deserves that chance and be fairly judged on that performance. IMHO.

so, as far as I'm concerned, the Dog Still Lives - of course all here who can read know about my particular issue - FTE 115gr ammo, sent to sig, returned saying "no problem", even tho they didn't try shooting 115gr ammo

if, at some point in the future, the gun has success shooting/ejecting 115gr I'll be sure to post that fact............if, however, the gun fails to do so I'll continue my attempt to beat that Dog

(and actually I've 2 Dogs 1) the 115gr issue & 2) sig customer service[sic]

Have you tried wearing a wrist brace? To handle the P938, you need strong wrists. They aren't for everybody.

I am not implying anyone or anything, but that last exchange reminded me of something my father used to say everytime I was dead sure a problem did not rest with me and I just want to share it.

One day this old guy lays down on his couch to take a nap. After he fell asleep, his granson snuck into the room and smeared Limberger cheese on his mustache. When the old man awoke, he sat up and said, "Boy that couch stinks." He walked across the room and then remarked, "No, it's the room that stinks." As he walked to the other side of the house he said loudly, "It's the house, this house stinks!" So he ran outside. As he stood there sniffing and looking in all directions, he raised his fists in the air and shouted, "NO, it's not my couch, my room or my house. It's the world, the whole world stinks!" Just then, he wiped his itchy upper lip...

Every time I was dead sure about a problem and it's cause, my dad offered that little bit of wisdom before I bore out S. Clemmons statement, "It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid, then to open it and remove all doubt."

^^No more wise or true words spoken!



Further proof that light travels faster than sound;

The person may look intelligent, then the mouth opens and words start to flow!

CS rep? Not me. I'd tell you limp wristers to "Man up" ! Now, I hope to live long enough to be a Walmart greeter. Hopefully, I could get an employee discount on ammo.
