Our Assessment: Stated on Gun University, “The Sig P938 is a single-action, single-stack, 9mm pistol. It bears a striking resemblance to both the Sig P238 from whence it came, and the 1911-pattern pistol from which both are direct descendants. Since the P938 is based on the P238, and since I have a good deal of experience with both, some comparison in this article is inevitable. Introduced just a couple years after the P238, the P938 has a steel slide and an aluminum frame. Sig elected to sharply checker the front strap of the P938, a most welcome upgrade. The controls are 1911-familiar: slide stop/slide release lever, magazine release, and of course, a thumb safety. The safety on the P938 is ambidextrous, and the P238 and P938 both lack the 1911’s grip safety.” This pistol is in great condition with a nice, bright bore and strong mechanics. It also comes with four magazines and different grip options to get you started. Please see our photos and good luck!
