I'm also on the waiting list for the P938 too. I just wonder why in R&D and testing these "bugs" or issues aren't caught before mass production starts. Surely they've put some rounds down range to see if it's going to have any FTF or FTE before they start manufacturing. Also this is the first time I've heard that Sig requires a "break in" period. Is this correct?

My P238 did not require a break in period; however perhaps because of the stiffness of the recoil spring, not to mention the stiffness of the spring in the clip a break in period is necessary. Just glad my problems are now resolved.

How are you guys getting the P938 so early? My LGS say it won't be in their stock until June or July maybe.

I got mine through gunbroker, from a link that was posted on here. Guy had 3. I called SIG (before I bought it) just to verify I was getting an actual 938 and was told the "first batch" had shipped to dealers who placed orders at the Shot Show. That's how I got mine.

I wouldn't conclude from SIG's recommendation to "clean and lube" a new (or seasoned) pistol before firing and to put "150 rounds through it to break it in" to be an indication that there are unresolved R&D and testing issues.
I would never fire a new pistol "out of the box" and given the mechanicals in one, it seems reasonable to expect their functioning to get better as they wear in together.

I totally agree that for every new and even when buying a used pistol to clean, lube, function test and then to the range to live fire trials. This is just standard SOP.

It is very disapointing that the P938 pistol has a safety lever on both sides! I do NOT need a safety that will stick out from a pocket holster! This is quite rediculous of the manufacture.

I really wanted to try one but not a dangerous one for pocket carry.

While I can appreciate you have a preferred design for your carry technique, I've leaned here that there are many customer requirements (all valid) that a manufacturer can try to meet. Someone just posted about the ambi safety he had just had installed on his pistol. I'm assuming that it meet his requirements. Hardly "ridiculous" of the manufacturer to supply it.

You are correct, rediculous is the wrong word. However, an ambi-safety being "available" is great, but being on every model and having to remove it is not what I would want to purchase.

Being a lefty, I appreciate the effort to put an ambi safety on the gun. I just paid $150+ to get one put on my 238 which brings the price of the gun up to and over some of the retail 938 prices. And of course I had to do without the gun for a time. I haven't got the 238 back yet but I have to say, so far the Sig Sauer CS has been first rate.

O.P..anything new to report? How is life with the 938? Some reports point towards issues shooting low and to the left to a degree that could not be ignored (c and c on youtube in particular) I'm curious, this is not a pistol that comes at an insignificant cost (not too much less than my 229R) so was wondering what your range reports have to say.

I'm not the OP but i have had a few issues with my Nightmare. after about 120-130 rounds it was beginning to have feed issues. oddly enough the first 50 were flawless. all were WWB and the only difference is that the first box was 124 grain vs 115. I suspect she might like the heavier bullets better. something to explore. either that or she doesn't like being dirty.

I also had a sight issue out of the box, shooting way high and left. high is sight picture since i have corrected it. left was a sight adjust. untill i can get 100-150 flawless rounds through then 2 mags of defense loads after that flawlessly I won't carry it

Shooting report. Got my p938 about three weeks ago. On my first outing I hated it. My p238 was so much more accurate. Kept shooting low and left. Recoil was not bad but very disapointed. Even had two jams with basic winchester 9's. I even Bad mouthed it on another site but was still being open minded. So today I spent several hours with "my new little friend"

Ok I am *biting my tongue. I had a great day with my p938. I found the more I shoot it the better I feel about it and the more comfortable I am with its power. The main thing to remember in a quick situation when you point and shoot you will be as accurate as need be. I am not planning on looking to target practice but making sure I am within the target area and it Does very well. *Even one handed which I find easy for me makes the mark. I am now a believer but the problem now is *that I want to carry both the p238 and the P938 at the same time. Is it also possible to carry my 226 too?

sure you can. 226 on your waist, 238 left front pocket 938 right front pocket or you can put them in ankle holsters. I found even without a holster the 938 doesnt print much in heavier denim when in the pocket
