Hello forum members,
I am going to try and post some photos on my most recent project, a real nice, 100% made in Germany, Sig 232 two tone with Hogue grips.
I foolishly sold a stainless Sig 230 several years ago and my dealer would not sell it back to me. This gun replaced my 5th or 6th (and I thought my last) PPK/PPKs. In contrast to my stainless PPK at the time, it fed everything and was very accurate. It was a little heavy so I found that I did not carry it too often.
Fast forward to the last year and many trials with the new plastic guns (ie., KelTec PF9 and P32) as well as a Kahr, another PPK/s, etc., etc., and I finally found myself with a new Sig 238. It was one of the first ones available and after going back twice to Sig, it really functioned nicely. However, I could not get used to the cocked and locked in my pocket and I started to miss my old Sig 230 again.
Ran across an owner in Missouri with my current Sig 232, and we traded even up. I love this 232 which only weights about 2 oz more than my 238. It is really like an old friend rejoining my group..
I sprung for some Hogue grips and several extra magazines and have really enjoyed it. It is very accurate, and handles all types of ammo including the hot Buffalo bore .380 hard cast rounds.
The favorite load is Hornady's Personal Defense round. Very easy to shoot and very very accurate.
I now go to the range and boast "No more plastic guns for me"!.
I do have to admit however, that I usually have a KelTec P32 in my pocket if the 232 is not with me.
Let me know what you think
