Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this for my wife, now I want the Legion ! Purchased this for my wife for her first carry gun. I wasn't shipping for a SIG, but that's just what we ended up with! After trying countless different brands, we came upon this little beauty. My wife said if feels like an extension of her hand. It just felt "RIGHT". Performs flawlessly at the range, surprisingly solid and absorbs felt recoil like a champ. Easy to clean, easy to operate, a joy to shoot. This is my introduction to SIG, I can't wait to try some of the other models the coming New Year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sig P238 - Primary Carry When I purchased this firearm I was seeking a small - concealable - manageable recoil pistol for someone up in their senior years where weight - recoil might be an issue. I have numerous compact pistols and this one is the primary go too for me. Heavy enough to absorb recoil but light enough to carry it all day. Also extremely accurate out to about 45'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY FAVORITE POCKET PISTOL OF ALL TIME! I never, ever, do product reviews but, I make an exception for the P238 I bought, and have carried daily, for the past 6 months. I have had many handguns throughout my life but this Sig Sauer P938 checks all of my "must have" feature buttons and is by far my favorite conceal carry weapon of all time. Over the years I've gone from revolvers to double action micro semi-automatics to striker fired and now finally a "1911" hammer style single action micro semi-automatic that is super easy to conceal and a pleasure to shoot. This P238 is very accurate and has minimal recoil. The P238’s lightweight alloy frame feels light a finely crafted handgun and not a crude square chunk of plastic like some competitors pistols I have tried. The P238 is so compact it has minimal printing in your pocket. This firearm goes in my pocket first thing in the morning and comes out last thing at night and I rarely notice it’s there. I have reasonably large hands but with the soft rubber grips and the magazine finger extension this weapon is comfortable and accurate even in my oversize hands. I love the thumb safety. I read all the time where people complain online about the use of thumb safeties but I could not disagree more. The P238 thumb safety sweeps off easily as you draw and becomes second nature while giving a true sense of cocked and locked safety within your pocket. My last micro pocket pistol had a heavy double action trigger which kept your trembling trigger finger guessing when it was going to fire. It also took a young strong grip to rack which made it impossible for my wife, and sometimes me, to rack, or pull the stiff double action trigger. With the P238 it is super easy to rack and the single action trigger is short and crisp with minimal reset travel. This is the first pistol I have carried that my wife felt comfortable using safely and with confidence. Call me old fashioned but, I love a hammer fired gun. At a quick glance, or feel in your pocket you can quickly see it’s charged condition. Try that with an internal firing pin hidden out of sight. This Sig Sauer P238 firearm is in my opinion not only an extremely effective conceal carry firearm but is also a combination of beautiful craftsmanship and firearm art at a time when many firearms have gone the crude less expense route. Sig Sauer has a reputation for being one of the higher priced pistols in the market but the P238 is competitively priced and one of the best, if not the best, .380’s on the market. The Sig Sauer fit and finish and features are exceptional and well worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sig Sauer P238 Combat 380acp 2tone Sig Sauer P238 Combat 380acp 2tone with laser (Sig Sauer Lima38 Trigger Guard Laser) Wife can operate the slide nice and easy. Great trigger. Awesome conceal and carry gun. I can find zero weak points about the P238.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pocket Carry I prefer to pocket carry and the P238 in a Sticky holster, suits my needs perfectly. I’m at the point in life where my hand strength isn’t what it used to be and the ease with which I can rack the slide is a huge plus. I ordered mine with the Sig Laser and I’m glad I did. It certainly helps with quick target acquisition. There’s very little to complain about with this firearm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nothing compares Have had this gun now for over a year. NEVER will I replace it. After a great deal of research on ammunition I would say that this .380 along with Lehigh XP rounds makes the 238 a perfect carry pistol. Would happily give 5 stars if the mag release was redesigned to avoid accidental ejection, maybe a sliding action instead of pushing in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Overall Got this a couple months ago and have a couple hundred flawless rounds through it. Came with a Sig Lima 38 laser and Hogue wraparound grips. Nice! Laser makes it tough to find a holster. Wish it had night sights.
