    Should I jump on this deal for a Sig p238?

    For some reason my local dealer has a two tone with laser Sig P238 for $459 (485 OTD). The store associate also was surprised at the low price and didn't know why his boss had them listed so low. I currently use a jframe for pocket carry and was thinking of getting a Ruger LCP for pocket carry and never considered the P238 because usually they are $520+. I think they look awesome.

    I am assuming it is this model/variant
    P238 Tactical Laser

    I think the description says you can remove the laser if wanted.
    Anyone know if that is true?

    Any disadvantage of getting this variant compared to other p238s without the laser?

    I have called around and most places have the all black p238 for $520 (551 OTD).

    Not to sure about the Laser but at that price I would jump on it like a duck on a June bug, P238s around here with the Laser run $650+. I have a P238 without the Laser, sweetest shooting .380 I own.

    It almost seemed like the SA was surprised. I am sure they would honor that price but I am wondering if it was a mistake. He was sure it was brand new.

    You can take the laser off and have a regular 238. Buy the gun, if you don't like the laser ebay it and you'll end up with a $200 238.

    Thanks for the tip. I usually not a laser guy so more than likely I will sell it.

    That's a great deal! They ripped me off about 12-18 months ago for $695 for the same gun!

    I see buds has one for $525 that looks a bit different than the one on Sigs website. I haven't seen the one at my gunshop yet but maybe the one on Sigs website is just the newer model.

    SIG SAUER P238 380 2-TONE NIGHT SIGHTS W/LASER! $529.00 SHIPS FREE

    Another local gunshop is selling it for $649

    Should I jump on this deal for a Sig p238?

    Great deal - Jump on it! I'm biased as it is my IWB carry weapon.
    I purchased one (without laser) three weeks ago. The lowest price I saw anywhere in Jax, FL was at Academy Sports for $449. Everyone else was in the $600 range. They feel great to shoot, doesn't snap in my hands like my KelTec P3AT. It does not discriminate, eats all sorts of ammo. Over 400 rounds through it and not one FTF or FTE. I wouldn't consider it a "chick" gun, but it is great for my wife as well - fits her hands well and is easy enough for her to rack. Mine only came with one mag (an extended 7 round mag), so I had to buy more later. The 7 round mags are great for the 7+1 option.
    Again great deal esp. with the laser.

    Like it was said buds has come down on the price as well. Maybe the pocket 9mm market is slowing sales on the .380.

    Any time you can get a deal on a Sig you should jump on it. Sigs are that good.

    I'm in Georgia. If you don't get it, tell me where it is and I'll do it in about 2 seconds!
