There are five Sig P238 .380 pistols in the Wolf extended family. We haven’t had any problems with them and when I screwed up and lost a spring Sig Sauer promptly sent me a replacement for free. The same thing happened when one of the wood grips cracked while I was firing my P239. Sig sent me a free pair of replacement grips. Shit happens but Sig Sauer customer service takes care of it.
There have been some reported problems with the new Sig P938. Sometimes this happens, especially with new models. Sig is on it and here’s a video report from Big Daddy Hoffman on YouTube.
We are big fans of the new S&W Shield which cost about half as much as a Sig P238. Smith has done such a good job with the striker fire trigger on the Shield that I don’t plan on purchasing a P938 at this time. But that’s not to say there is not one in my future.

BigDaddyHoffman1911 on the range showing and shooting the new Sig Sauer P938 Extreme 9mm Pistol after repairs and updates from Sig.
Big Daddy found prices ranging from $699.00 to $799.00 in the North Carolina Area. Academy Sports is selling the P938 Nightmare for $700.
With the introduction of the P938, SIG SAUER now offers the ballistic advantage of the 9mm cartridge in a platform similar in size to the best-selling P238 pistol. A single-action-only trigger, coupled with full-size SIGLITE® Night Sights makes the P938 handle like a much larger pistol, yet is still easy to carry concealed.
With dimensions just slightly larger than its .380ACP counterpart, the P938 packs six plus one rounds of 9mm into an all-metal frame. The cocked-and-locked single-action trigger gives the P938 unmatched accuracy in a pistol its size.
Fans of the 1911 will find the thumb safety, magazine release and slide stop lever in familiar places. An ambidextrous safety makes the P938 easy for left- and right-handed shooters. An extended seven-round magazine will be available separately.
The most compact 9mm in the SIG SAUER product line, the P938 will be available in five configurations.
Extreme: Following in the footsteps of other Extreme models, this P938 has a Nitron-coated stainless slide and black anodized frame. Hogue G-10 Piranha grips in black and grey provide maximum grip and a distinctive look.
