    New Sig Rosewood P238

    I just picked up a new Sig P238 rosewood yesterday and thought I'd share. It has a manufacture date of April 2011, flat recoil spring, wider slide, newest magazine, and a great looking piece overall. Gave it a thorough cleaning and lubing this morning and did some hand cycling and dry firing with snap caps. No problems and everything feels very smooth. I had one of the first P238's when they came to market, and while I had no problems with mine, I had to sell it due to some financial constraints. Can't wait to get out and put this new one through it's paces.

    And even though we all know what it looks like... everybody likes pictures

    Sweet pair and the P238 is the finest 380 I have ever shot.

    I can't emphasize enough how much I regret selling my p238. The only reason I sold it was because it's reliability was questionable. I will have another one someday.

    p238 is hands down the best looking .380 on the market. i drool everytime i see one but haven't pulled the plug and purchased one for concerns about pocket carrying it.

    Carry pistols 001.jpgCarry pistols 008.jpgCarry pistols 010.jpg I sold a Colt Mustang 11 years ago to buy my wife a custom wedding band set (which I regreat doing). I picked up a P238 a couple of weeks ago and I am liking it better! Sweet pair of pistols you have. I like the work on the RUGER.

    The only P238s I played with were at an NRA convention right after they came out, and the safety was easy to push on, but took a disproportionate amount of force to disengage. Same on both samples I tried, and that really soured me on the gun. Has that gotten any better?

    I have the excact same Sig, birth month-March 2011. In the the 6 weeks I have had mine I have fired between 500-600 trouble free rounds. About 200 of those have been SD rounds. Without question, my SD rounds for my P238 is the Buffalo Bore 100 gr +P hardcast.

    I just fiddled with one of those at a store. Very nice little pistol. The only issue I had was that it took some doing to put the safety on, but it was easy to click off. No idea why, but I'm fine since it needs to be easier to disengage than engage.

    My wife picked up a new P238 two weeks ago at Cabelas. Took it to the range the next day (field stripped it, but left it factory oiled) and it was flawless for 300 rounds, both target loads and SD ammo. Kinda cheap that Sig only gives you one magazine. I picked up two extras at Midway for $16.99, ordered on Friday morning, delivered via US Mail on Saturday. I guess it helps that I am only 90 miles from Midway.
