No more having to deal with the original two piece guide rod coming apart (or having to worry about it) especially when actually shooting my P938 at the firing range (or if having to actually use it in a self defense situation!).

NO MORE HAVING TO DICK AROUND WITH THIS!

So, how many rounds have gone through the gun after using it (oops, sorry, I just looked at your post date). I received mine yesterday (the 10th). It's shameful that Sig Sauer doesn't have an obviously superior part (very key part of the gun) as an OEM part. I will validate it's functionality and quaiity in time then report results here.

BTW, their customer services sucks as relates to guide rods. When I called them with the issue they said "only about 1 to 2 percent of guns made have this problem". REALLY!!! In an EDC firearm!!! ANY failures in a EDC gun are unacceptable, but they had to be told that by a customer.

They also said they had NO replacement parts in stock to send to owners with the problem while at the same time, after I asked, they were making NEW P938's with the same defective parts!! All of this is incredibly unbelievable from a gun manufacturer that I once thought made premium guns. After unloading on the very sarcastic CS Rep. a new two piece guide rod showed up in the mail a week later. I ordered the one piece rod. Hopefully, after several hundred rounds through the gun with the one piece rod, I will feel like I have a reliable EDC gun. Today, I don't yet feel that way. Time will tell. Reject poor quality from poor companies.

Oh, as well, I see the P938 SAS is not available on Sig's website any longer. Easy come, easy go I guess. Kind of like a tennis shoe company, only a "perceived premium firearm" company. Sig has a long way to go. I wonder when they will come out with a pink pistol.

I've been buying stuff from SS Guiderods for a while now. Always a good product. The replacement for my S&W Shield 9MM worked out just great. Got one for my Sig P229 22 cal. conversion to replace the plastic guiderod that it came with.

Are these one piece guide rods, made as one piece or are they welded to make it one piece or some other kind of "permanent" attachment?

They are milled and one solid piece. Hence the high price tag associated with them

My Cousin's oldest Son Has A P938 that He purchased in 2012 has over 20,000 rounds thru it and Has Had No Problems with the Guide Rod. He Also Never Upgraded the so
called defective parts to the Gen 2s either. All He has ever done is clean and lube and replace the recoil spring when needed.

16 posts on this forum, and almost every single one of them has been trashing on Sig and making the same points over and over. Clearly you're bitter - I get it. But do you plan to contribute anything constructive while you're here at some point?

Just use the little block feature. He is a troll. Probably has Glock tattoos somewhere on his body

I field stripped my P938 the other day, and took a couple pairs of pliers and tried to unscrew the 2-piece guide rod. I couldn't get it to budge.

So, am I worried about it? Not at all. I'll continue to check it periodically when I clean the gun to make sure it hasn't worked loose, but would I say that this guide rod in any way affects my confidence in the gun's function or reliability? Not in the slightest.
