Sig Sauer P938 Overview
I have to say this gun is definitely an absolute operate of art. Feel baby 1911 in 9mm. This can be a true pocket pistol that you simply can in fact really feel comfy carrying and shooting Sig Sauer.
It started going back to Oct of 2012. If an work to garner help at house for my time at the variety an attempt was made to encourage my wife to shoot. These of you who know me personally will know my wife is often a incredibly petite lady. She stands 5ft even and beneath 100 lbs. She has many of the tiniest hands I have ever observed on an adult. She has shied away from shooting because of most pistols becoming to large for her to hold and as a consequence of her fear with the recoil.
She has tried my Glock and it truly is so huge that she can not even reach the trigger. The LC9 she can grip but the trigger is so far forward that she is unable to pull it. So we went towards the Novi Gunshow to determine what we could come across for her. Now retain in thoughts my wife knows nothing at all about guns but every thing about highly-priced taste. She attempted out 30 or so guns that day never ever once looking at the price tag. The complete objective was for fit and really feel so she may be comfy.
Right after choosing up the p938 Equinox she went from an individual who tolerated my high-priced hobby to a person who was commonly thinking about shooting. The fit was fantastic even without the pinky extension her hand match on the gun. The trigger had been firm close and easy to pull for her brief fingers. The grip was comfy and adequately stylish. We had a winner. The gun expense $680 which just after the panic was a steel but when in comparison to my $325 LC9 was a little of a challenging pill to swallow. In the interest of her defense and my continued enjoyment around the line we purchased it. She has due to the fact taken her CPL class working with this weapon and enjoys it drastically.
Speedy forward to January. Just after having fed up with all the trigger on the LC9 I take her P938 to the variety with some friends. I do not shoot nicely having a hammer fired DOA handgun. The challenge is me and not the gun I know and practice will support but within a Life or Death predicament I want my striker fired Glock or possibly a solid SA SRT trigger. I was so impressed with the trigger with the p938 it was a clean crisp having a brief reset and light pull compared to the other pocket pistols I've fired. For any gun so smaller I expected a little much more recoil but it was very easy to get back on target and fire comply with up shots. Considering I had never fired this pistol along with the two.25 inch barrel size I was shocked when the groupings on my targets had been so tight. I am no marksman so I’m not going to share but it is adequate to say that I practiced with all the LC9 for months and my initially six shots using the p938 had greater groupings then any I had performed on my LC9 ever.
I knew I had to possess one particular. Unfortunately these guns had been tough to come by just before the panic. After they had been practically not possible. NY was receiving them as a result of new mag limits so places like MI located them difficult to find. I went on GunBroker to see if I'd have any luck there. I found many promoting over $900 all in the exact same finish as my wife’s. Because we share a safe this wouldn't operate and I'd must get yet another configuration. Immediately after a number of weeks of hunting around I was ultimately capable to procure the Nightmare for $685 which came out to become closer to $750 following CC fee’s, shipping and regional FFL price.
Utilizing the identical Galco pocket holster I had for the LC9 I've been able to carry this gun extremely effortlessly concealed within a pocket with limited to no printing. I'm applying the extended 7rd magazine with all the pinky extension due to my complete sized hands. As a 6ft tall man there is no concern with holding this gun should you use the pinky extension. Two of my close friends are able to shoot it comfortably without the extension so attempt it for yourself and see. Even with all the extension concealment isn't an issue.
The trigger out from the box was a bit gritty and tight. There has been complaints about challenges together with the initial model extractors. Supposedly these issues had been corrected by Oct of 2012 and I have not observed them in my P938 Nightmare. Immediately after cleaning degreasing the weapon and then adequately lubricating it I began to work the trigger. Employing a snap cap and firing the gun about 150 occasions the grittiness within the trigger was gone and it had an incredibly good smooth pull.
A frequent complaint for this gun may be the serrated trigger as well as the sharp tip on the plastic trigger. In a self defense situation it will not be an issue but following putting some hundred rounds downrange without having gloves most of the people report a sore finger and a few have even had blisters. There's 2 methods to resolve this. The first is SS replacement triggers. These are normally preferred by high end shooter over the plastic trigger that's shipped with the P938. You are able to make use of the identical precise trigger replacements as these made for the P238 as they have been around longer and offer you much more possibilities. The second is what I did and that is to take a Dremmel tool and also a very fine sanding wheel and sand down the serration’s and sharp trigger tip. Given that this is plastic it's incredibly easy to do and will outcome in a quite comfortable trigger that you just can mold to your shooting style. The plastic is black all the way through so sanding this down will not leave you having a 2 tone trigger. There are lots of videos on YouTube about this if you're interested.
In brief that is my new ultra concealment EDC for occasions when carrying my Glock will not be a viable option. It gets a lot of use and has handled the put on properly Sig Sauer. The trigger keeps having better as does my accuracy. The Sig Web pages are a number of the ideal night web sites I've ever had the privilege of employing. All in all it was worth each penny IMHO
