Your and my p938 should have performed flawlessly out of the box... Not after service and replacement parts. That defeats the purpose of buying a new gun in the first place. Thanks for demonstrating my point by telling us how you had to return your gun too... I'm glad you won the service lottery. My ticket came up bupkis...
I recently bought a 2012 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo and the drivers window did not work properly from day 2. It took VW 90 days to figure out what the fix was and last week mine was fixed. Has this dampened my enthusiasm for my Beetle" Hell No". I worked closely with Volkswagen Customer Care to get my car repaired and, as a show of good faith, they made my first two car payments. Was the car "flawless out of the box" hell no. Did I give Volkswagen a chance to make it right hell yes. Did I trash the manufacture on any of the forum hell no but I guess you would have.

No, sigmiester, your wrong!
I don't trust my life to a car. An EDC, I do. This is the difference, hope you can see that. Also VW didn't deny your issue... Sig did.

First of all I would not carry a gun that I was not 100% sure was reliable. That's why I test fire it until I am convinced it is. In the case of the P938 it was not reliable out of the box so I contacted Sig explained my issue and sent the gun back to them to get it repaired. They did not denied that I had a problem. In fact they acknowledged that they were having extraction issues with this model and told me to return it which I did. Since its return I have fired over 300 rounds without a single issue and it is now my every day carry gun. So in the end do I think the P938 is a piece of **** NO!. Do I think the folks at Sig Customer Service were not responsive to my needs or treated my shabbily NO!. Would I have preferred to have the P938 reliable out of the box Yes! but with any new product you some times have issues with the early models. As long as the manufacture stands behind its product and makes things right there is no need to throw them under the bus. That's all I am saying.

Got Sig's...No Problems!

....I own a P226 (.40), P229 (.40), and a P250 (.45). I have a 9mm conversion for the P229 and a .40 conversion for the P250.


The P250 has not given me a problem at all. I would say with over 500 rounds of .45 and 200 .40 threw the P250 I never had a feed problem or issue with a misfire.


I shoot regularly and I have to say if you clean em, lube em and feed em good ammo you ain't having a problem. Not seeing reliability concerns with the P250.

Today, I sent in my P938 back to Sig to correct the same issues as the majority of you who did the same... FTE, FTF... I've had the gun since August but have only been able to take it out three times since however, in those three sessions, I have shot close to 300-400 rounds using different types of ammo ranging from the Winchester 115gr to American Eagle 147gr. In all instances I have experienced at least one FTE.

I was wondering, for those who sent their P938s back to sig, what was their turnaround time from the time they shipped it and the time they received it again? Also, are you satisfied with the finished product? Lastly, has anyone been experiencing the gun shooting low and to the left?
