    Thinking about the Sig P238

    If you were going to buy <==== that is important, because if you don't like the gun and would never buy the gun, then that's not my point. I am looking for info and opinions on the different models of the Sig P238....which model would you get and why...like pro and cons with the HD model, the rainbow finish, the equinox model...here is the Sig site...Products & Services Thanks for your input....I value that.

    I like the Nitron myself... all black, simple and a good finish. Just personal preference, I don't care for shiny or flashy guns.

    I think it should be the Nitron with rosewood grips, but I am not really sure about it.

    I did buy the Two Tone Products & Services mainly because I got a good price at a gun show, $500 out the door. Much more fun to shoot than my P3AT and does not bite like the PPK.

    My friend bought one in two tone with grey grips. He loves his. I not much for cocked and locked in a pocket gun though.

    My wife bought the rainbow changes color finish and then topped it off with two sets of custom colored grips. She thinks that will keep me from carrying it when I get home.
    I am secure enough in my manhood to do it...concealed anyway. They are neat little guns you will enjoy it.

    Why not save some extra money and get the real deal. I've been a big fan of the Colt Mustang and Colt Government .380 for a long time. The Sig is a Johnny come lately knock off. The Colt functions well, and looks much better than the Sig. Besides, they are only going up in value year after year and can still be had at a reasonable price if you shop around. JMHO

    One reason is I have the real deal....I just got a hankering for that little Sig. Really like to limit the shooting of the Colt and use the Sig. I agree with your comments though.

    I think I bought the first one to come into my area, it's a two tone with standard sights and the black grips. If I had any vague notion of patience (albeit it was worth it) I'd get the nitron finish rosewood grips and night sights.

    Guess I've got a pretty good excuse to buy another one :D

    That was a very sweet pistol . I understand that you like to limit the shooting of it.

    I have the nitron model. I carry this gun everyday, everywhere and wanted a practical, working gun. Black-on-black conceals just a little better than anything flashy.

    Got some locktite to secure the grip screws.

    Have fired about ten different brands of ammo, fmj & hollowpoint. The only problems are that I carried some too long. After cycling rounds every time I cleaned or examined the gun, two rounds sputtered out the barrel at the gun range, FTE on the first one. That was unsettling. Un-fired Winchester flat nose/truncated cone don't eject very well. They shoot well, but the bullet is almost exactly as long as the ejection port. I am going to use them for practice.

    I love my Sig P238. Shoot, practice, clean, repeat.
