SIG SAUER P238 Info

Reacting to many requests from the marketplace for a subcompact SIG SAUER pistol, engineers designed the new P238 as a smart looking, small handgun built with the same accuracy and reliability as large frame SIG SAUER pistols. With an overall length of just 5.5 inches a height of 3.96 inches, and weighing just under a pound, the SIG SAUER P238 is the ultimate firepower in an all metal frame concealed pistol. The P238 is built on an anodized alloy beavertail style frame with fluted grips for comfort and a secure hold during rapid-fire usage. The stainless steel slide features the popular SIG SAUER slide serrations and improves overall performance and accuracy. Additionally, the SIGLITE Night Sights are removable and adjustable for windage. The sear and trigger return spring are redesigned to prevent spring over-ride of the ejector during assembly. Trigger Pull: SA 7.5-8.5 lbs Sights: SIGLITE Night Sights Grips: Fluted Polymer Grips Frame Finish: Black Hard Coat Anodized Slide Finish: Nitron Accessory Rail: No

  • P238 Nitron
    The Sig Sauer P238 nitron so the 230 is a 380 caliber pistol and its a micro pistol in fact its the smallest pistol that sig sauer makes this little 230 is a great option for deep concealed carry throw it in an ankle in ...a pocket. All 238 have single action only trigger, basically is the hammer must be cocked back in order for it to fire. So typically carry it in a locking cock configuration meaning the hammer cocked back and the manual safety up are engaged to fire. And have a nice light single action only trigger pull. Its a really pleasant little three to shoot up, on top got full size sights and the sig light night sight so they are tritium sights. more

    I absolutely love my P238. It's compact, fits anywhere. I've tried other brands and found this Sig to be the most reliable and comfortable for personal and home defense. Its easy to take apart and clean too ( I'm a femal...e of small stature so finding something reliable and comfortable to conceal and handle was difficult) more

    I bought this semi-auto pistol for my wife. Well made, metal slide adds about the perfect weight to a provide balance and to control recoil. One of the convincing factors is an older person with a weaker grip is able to ...operate the slide. It is compact and can be easily concealed. The quality, size, ease of operation of the Sig Sauer P238 puts it at the top of the class for this type of hand gun. more

    Best .380 Out There
    I've owned my Sig Sauer P238 for a few months now and ran about 300 rounds through it . Never any issues and feels great . I have tried different ammo and this pistol accepts all of it . No FTF or FTE with any price...d ammo . The gun is light , very easy to rack and has fantastic sites . There is no other .380 that equals the features of this particular gun . I will probably purchase the 9mm version [P938] in the near future . more

    Sold other guns right after I shot this one.
    The size compares to an LCP or KelTec but the balance and just enough weight make it very easy and fun to shoot. It is far more accurate than I expected and conceals as well as my wallet.

    excellent little CC pistol
    I bought this gun at Academy last year as something to conceal-carry. I've always had good luck with SIGs, and was looking for something easier to shoot than the Bodygaurd 380 I was carrying. I knew when I held it t...hat this was what I was looking for. Then I took it to the range and loved how easy it was to shoot and surprisingly accurate for a 2.7" barrel. The SigLite night sights were a bonus. This is the plain model,no fancy finishes, but a solid performer. The only change I made to it was putting on Hogue rosewood grips. I have now shot over 400 rounds through my P238 and have had zero problems. That is the kind of reliability you want in a carry pistol. This one has my highest recommendation. more

    Best bang for the buck, so to speak.
    This is the basic Sig P238-.380, not the Pearl, not the Rosewood, and not the Rainbow. Just the basic black, with black poly grips and YES, it comes with the 7 round extended mag. Very good bargain, other colors without ...the extended mag run about $650 to $700 at gun shops. more

    Really like it
    Since I developed a wrist problem, I can't shoot my bigger guns anymore because of the recoil. So I did a lot of research on the 380s and decided that although I like the design and looks better on the P238, most th...e info I read said that the Glock 42 has the least amount of recoil. So I got the chance to dry fire the Glock (at another store) and I found just doing that, it put my wrist at an angle that aggravated it. Surprised me but it but I can't argue with my wrist. So then I dry fired the Sig, oh my, it felt so good and natural. When I shot it at the range after buying it, it felt great to shoot. No problem even with my screwed up wrist. Very accurate, reliable and fun! Happy I got it. more

    Pocket pistol convert
    Seldom write reviews but the P238 deserves one. Always been a fan of larger calibers and only looked @ small 380's. Went to check out another brand that was on sale. The Sig fit great and has great features. Have tr...ied different types of ammo trying to make it malfunction. No luck. It's accurate, reliable, and very well built. If you're on the fence, go to Academy and get one. My 9's,40's,and 45's have become safe queens. more

    Best gun hands down!
    Bought my Sig P238 two months ago. I've already sold my Ruger LCP and Beretta 91A...because once you shoot the Sig...nothing compares. It's small and lightweight enough for a small woman like myself to carry as... my everyday ccw. The recoil is barely noticeable. The trigger draw isn't a hard pull as the LCP. I'm 60 yrs old and have small hands with arthritis. ..no problem with sliding the rack...I absolutely love this sub compact. more

    Sig Quality & Your Life Justify the Inve$tment
    Top Notch Quality same as Sig's larger pistols. Best sights of any micro-carry pistol. Academy model seems to be the price leader for P238 currently @ $519. Recommend changing the grips as 1st improvement. Rubber gr...ips are thicker and provide better grip as well as inexpensive upgrade. Wood, aluminum, & G10 grips more attractive and add contrast but about same thickness as ugly originals. I enjoyed the form & function of my first P238 so much I bought another one. more

    The Daily Carry Solution
    I've put over 1,000 rounds in the 6 or so months I've owned this pistol in an effort to make sure the trigger (7 pound pull) was broken in. I eventually had to have a trigger job and now it shoots much better. ...Excellent little pistol that you can conceal if you're only wearing shorts. Easy to carry all day in your pocket. I've had no feeding, firing, or ejecting problems whatsoever and I have to say that the factory trigger is the reason I didn't give it 5 stars. I have talked to other owners about the heavy trigger and it seems YMMV. I do recommend it. more

    Sweet Shooter
    Been having trouble finding a semi auto that my wife would enjoy shooting, this sig P238 turned out to be the one. Purchased this gun yesterday, took it home and oiled it and went to the range, it preformed flawlessly, g...reat sights, slide is easy for my wife to work, and my wife loves the 1911 style trigger, she has trouble with flinching on longer trigger pulls. I haven a Bursa Thunder 380 witch I like and is a little bigger, but this little gun has less recoil and in reality more fun to shoot. I checked internet and local gun shops, could not find this gun at a better price. more

    What a great BUG.
    I bought this gun this morning as a back up to my CCW 45, and to have a gun my wife could shoot. Immediately came home, tore it down, cleaned and lubed it, and headed for the range. 100 rounds later, everything in the 9 ...ring. No FTF, FTE or problem of any kind. Very nice optics on the front sight, minimal recoil, and ate every kind of ammo I fed it. If my wife decides she likes it I will definitely go buy another one. more

    It just keeps shootin'
    Six years ago I bought my little Sig for my conceal and carry gun. I pack it daily in my pocket, with extra clips in the other pocket. It has well over a 1,000 rounds shot through it. At the range, I've ran the crum...miest ammo through it. It doesn't care what ammo I run through it, pull the trigger, it shoots. Never has there been a jam or misfire. Recoil doesn't bother my bad (shooting) arm, and it is accurate. When I get home, it gets a good cleaning. The four biggest features that swayed me to the P238 are: 1. The safety features of the thumb safety and single action. 2. The sights for me are the best of most of the pocket guns. 3. Sig's reputation. I've seen many reviews going both ways for the P238. My lil fella exceeds the reliability of any semi-auto pistol I own or have owned. 4. Conceal-ability, it hides very well no matter where I carry it. In all, I treat this gun a little on the rough side, magazines especially. Should I ever need to depend on it, I know it won't let me down. more

    Great Gun
    I bought this gun two months ago and I know how important a review is because I read many on this gun. I purchased this exact same model at Academy and absolutely love it...after figuring the ammo out. First of all, acad...emy has the best price on this gun, and if you don't like the grips and want to upgrade them you can always purchase them from Sig. Secondly, the ammo, I found that the ammo that works best for this gun defensive wise are Fiochi and Hornady 90 grain hollow point XTP. I have have shot 200 plus rounds with those two ammos with no problem at all. Shooting the Bull YouTube also rated those two as two of the best brands in the Self defense XTP to use for small .380. I have shot two hundred plus rounds of FMJ with no problems either. The two brands I had a problem with where Federal hollow point 90 grain and one other hollow point(whoops forgot name). Be sure to keep this gun cleaned and well greased and lubed, because it is a .380, but in my opinion, the most reliable one on the market. Hope this helps. more

    My worst pistol ever (new)
    My first trip to the range! 60 rounds fired, 5 FTF, 2 FTE, Mag fell out twice causing a jam. If the mag is seated with a firm tap the slid stop deactivates on its own. Ammo used UMC, Federal JHP would not load. Ten yard ...group was about 6 in. I am taking it to the gun smith tomorrow for a ramp polish. It fits well in my hand, my wife is pleased with the ease of the slide. I will try different brands of ammo, as I would like this pistol to work. I did not buy the P238 from Academy , wish I had because of their price. I will certainly come back for other products more

    First time shooting gun great!
    My wife and me just got done taking our concealed weapons class. We bought Sig for concealed weapon and to take test with. I shot great with this gun wife shot well also. She is new to handguns The recoil was a little mu...ch for her she said but I loved it. I have not shot handguns very much at all and this gun handled beautifully in my opinion instructor said he could not believe I shot as well as I did with such a small gun. I give full credit to my research and buying a Sig Sauer. Best in class I was and have not shot more than 50 rounds in 20 years great GUN! more

    Great Features!
    The Academy model of the P238 has excellent day glow/ night sights that are optional on most other versions of this pistol. Many reviews of this fine little handgun claim that it is a small 1911, but internally it is a m...uch more refined design with well proven elements of Beretta, Sig, and the Browning HP present. I have had a couple of failures to fire with Winchester white box FMJ ammo due to hard primers, but I have also had the same failure with a Walther PPK/S. No problems with any other type of ammo. I highly recommend this pistol for anyone that has a problem retracting the slide on other handguns. The accuracy is excellent, and those sights on the Academy are as good as it gets. more

    Best concealed carry ever!
    I happen to own two of these. I have used one as my every day carry for over a year now, and have about 3000 rounds through it. I changed the recoil spring, and added a new set of grips to it, but thats all. The sights o...n this model far exceed what other guns in this size give you. I can shoot 3 inch groups at 10 yards, even though that is not what these are designed for. My wife had a S&W as her carry and decided she wanted a P238 after several trips to the range, so now we have two of these. The quality is superb. These little guns are extremely reliable. You pay a little bit more, but you really do get what you pay for. It is disappointing that these only come with one magazine. I have bought extras on EBAY. If you are open to a single action safety carry method in a downsized 1911 style, You just cannot go wrong with this gun. more

    Great Concealed Carry Weapon
    I am a big fan of Sigs and this is the only subcompact that feels good in my hand right out of the box as it comes from Academy with a slightly extended 7 round magazine, although I highly recommend the slightly thicker ...rubber aftermarket grips. Easily concealable in an ITW or pocket holster, very light, and extremely accurate. Tough to beat Academy's price and impossible to beat their friendly, efficient service. This is the third handgun I have purchased from them and I doubt I'll ever buy anywhere else. more

    Fantastic pocket gun
    Had the opportunity to fire this gun and I really do think it's an amazing firearm. The trigger is great compared to other pocket guns, the sights are easy to acquire and the propellants used in .380 ammo now make i...t much more relevant than it was years back. more

    Love This Little Gun!
    I bought this just about two months ago as a concealed carry weapon. Really a great little gun! Very reliable and easy to maintain. Fits into the hand very well, and shoots very smoothly. Doesn't take much pull to k...nock a round out. What I like most, as compared to other models, is that this a double action firearm. I can put one in the chamber, and release the hammer as an added safety. The to fire, all I have to do is release the safety and cock the hammer. Nice! more

    Great pistol
    I bought one for concealed carry and it's become one of my favorites and plus it's a sig so you know quality is what you're getting. Also the staff is very helpful.

    Absolutely a fine conceal carry weapon
    I purchased this from Academy 8 months ago for my wife. 1st fit and finish perfect. 2nd night/day sights highly visible and dead on. 3rd Trigger it is heavy but very controllable and crisp. 4th magazine extension helps t...he grip fill the hand, magazine function is perfect but only comes with one magazine. Ordered extra off ebay they didn't have one in the store. I have fired factory Remington/PMC Bronze/Winchester FMJ and a few hundred of my 88gr JHP reloads. My wife loves this weapon and I have become jealous of her. @ 7yrds it will cut the heart of 1 1/2" orange target stickers. more

    Amazing
    Best pocket .380 out there.  Period.  At this price it's a no-brainer.  Sig customer service is second to none, not that you'll have to use it.  It's built like a watch and feels solid ...unlike those plastic toy guns that so many like to shoot these days.  Do yourself a favor and buy one.  What a price! more

    Shoots like a dream
    I had a Walther PPK .380. It was a nice gun and I loved it. BUT, for conceal carry it wasn't worth 2 cents. The Walther is very heavy for a small gun and prevented me from dropping it in my pocket and leaving home w...ith it.   A Police Officer friend suggested the Sig Sauer P238 .380.   This is the best gun purchase I've ever made, hands down. I've fired 200 target rounds through it and it is very accurate. Forget about jams, the action is tight and smooth. The is my conceal carry gun and I'm buying 2 more. One for my wife and one for her sister. Awesome weapon.  more

    This gun is great for backup carry..Shoots extremely nice. The night sights are a plus. Sig makes solid guns. As for buds they have been great. Took a week for my electronic transfer to clear but well worth the wait. Plu...s item was exactly as described in description. more

    This is a great pistol for someone who wants a small carry gun that is nonetheless easy to grip and surprisingly accurate to shoot. It is easy to disassemble and clean, and (one cartridge) larger magazines are easily ava...ilable. Only you can decide whether .380 caliber is big enough for your purposes. more

    This model is an excellent value for a Sig P238 .380 acp, very smooth action, light trigger, bright night sights and all-black finish. This would be excellent as a back-up carry gun, with 7-round extended mags available ...for enhanced grip and 1 extra round, and for $129 you can get a Sig laser designed to fit this gun. This is a much better 24/7 carry choice versus the Colt 380 Mustang 380 Pocketlite, which I also own and like, but this SIg P238 has the advantage of having nice night sights which the Colt does not. In fact the Colt front sight in a ridge in the slide, not dovetailed. Colt should make this modification to their design to compete against these Sig P238. Rught now, SIg offers over a dozen variations of this cute little 380 acp. good luck deciding which ones to buy, as they are all very nice and unique. more
