thanks....they're made of Cocobolo (Standing up well to repeated handling and exposure to water, a common use is in gun grips and knife handles. It is very hard, fine textured and dense), a very hard wood. I bought them from a company on the internet highfiguregrips.com custom wood pistol grips .

I don't sell them, make them or have any dog in the fight. Just thought I would let folks know.

I like the double diamond better than the smooth. Nice looking grips.

I imagine he could do it, but I think the extra work might be costly. I know these double diamonds were pricey.

Looks like you have had 2 grips from him. We're the first ones giving you grip purchase issues?

wasteful I know, but the first set I bought knowing I would sell them after the double diamonds were delivered....there was a waiting list for double diamonds for the 938.

but to answer your question, the smooth shot well and no problem with grip. if you used them for hot weather target, I think the smooth could be slick, but being the 938 is a closer, self defense weapon......the smooth are very doable and I had no complaints.

I'll sell the smooth set greatly reduced if you have an interest.

Thanks I'm not interested in your old grips I really like to cocobola wood. mineo 938 comes back from sig and it works I will keep it. If not then I will be getting rid of the 938 for a pm9 since it's the only other true pocket 9 IMO. If I keep it I will order some grips from him to make my 2tone look even sweeter. Here's to hoping my 938 comes back working!

it's a shame the 938 seems to be a beta test through buyers....it's a sweet gun when working correctly and deserves a better reputation than a dependable crapshoot. I've read of some of your issues and hope yours can be resolved.

Thanks it's just frustrating more then anything. Having a glock background I don't really know about FTF, fte, or other problems. I know some have bad glock experience but when you have have several glocks and a only one failure to feed issue in over 10,000 rounds it makes it hard to get warm and fuzzy about any problematic firearm.

I probably should have got a pm9 out of the gate, but always wanted to try a sig. Plus i love the look, feel and intrigue of the 1911 style weapons. Once I saw I could get the size, weight and capacity of a pm9 in 1911 platform I had to try it. Until it gets sorted my trusty G26 is still with me. Hell I may even carry both for a bit till I feel the 938 is in the 99%+ function category.

There are many of us (including me) that sent in, and got back a dependable great shooter.
I have confidence from two experiences, that your 938 will be fine!
The 938 is great now, but my CM 9 is 100% right outa the box and much cheaper, so it is my carry most of the time.

Before I bought the 938, I did a bunch of online research and knew there was a good chance that I could end up with a less than perfect pistol in functional and dependibility transition. But the weight, feel, looks and 1911 platform pushed me to take that chance. So far, no issues to date and I'm a very happy camper. A few hundred more down range and it will be my EDC.

But having said that, I also justified the purchase that if I ended with a problem child, Sig would identify the problems and take steps to get it right and I believe they will.

The CM9 and the PM9 are great guns, but to me, they just don't have the wow factor of the 938. Hang in there and get it right.
