SIG P238 380ACP – Two-Tone
Reacting to many requests from the marketplace for a subcompact SIG SAUER pistol, engineers designed theSIG P238 380ACP – Two-Tone new as a smart looking, small handgun built with the same accuracy and reliability as large frame SIG SAUER pistols. With an overall length of just 5.5 inches a height of 3.96 inches, and weighing just under a pound, the SIG SAUER P238 is the ultimate firepower in an all metal frame concealed pistol. The P238 is built on an anodized alloy beavertail style frame with fluted grips for comfort and a secure hold during rapid-fire usage. The stainless steel slide features the popular SIG SAUER slide serrations and improves overall performance and accuracy.

This is a great little gun! I keep it by the bed for that just in case moment! I have probably put 450 rounds through it since I got it earlier this year and it functions flawlessly. I do however recommend that the larger magazines are purchased. It feels much better with them I got 4 extras. I also got it from this dealer because they had the best price and are great to deal with. You can’t go wrong with this gun it is awesome!

Fantastic gun! Looks great and is a pleasure to shoot. I bought this to replace my Ruger LCP which was horrible. Put about 100 rounds down range back to back with my Glock 17 and they had the same kind of feel. Solid, easy to handle and accurate. If your are looking at a 380 for concealed carry and have the budget to buy the Sig you will not regret it. I have shot a lot of 380’s and this is by far the best!
The first time I fired the P238 was at the range as a rental. I knew then that I had to have my own. A great feel of quality, a lot of fun to shoot, a pleasure to carry, and accurate. A mini 1911 that is impressive in appearance and although more pricey then others, there is absolutely no doubt that it is worth every cent. You get what you pay for! I love this firearm!

I got mine today,no problems from firearmssuppliers.com. The pistol looks good and feels excellent. I am not the best shooter with a gun this size, but prefer it 100 times over LCP. Great back up pistol, nice size and weight. I only put 50 rounds through it today but I have found that to be a good indication of how a pistol will perform. No problems what so ever, and I would say if there were. I like it and will carry it every day as a back up. Only bad thing so far, one magazine. I got a 229 Dark Elite the other day and it came with two mags. This one came with one and Sig wants $45 for one, not cool. Great pocket holster at http://www.texasdonkeys.com.
Great little gun. Beautiful as well. Very accurate. One mush have with the p238 is the sig 7 round mag with the grip extension. The difference in the with and with put the extension is unbelievable. I have found that original sig clips work better and more reliable. Buds delivered fast and on schedule very smooth process.
