Nice gun, almost the same with a few minor differences.
Triggers are plastic on both and ok with me but partsproduction.com makes a SS (black option) for those who want metal.
P238 has left side safety while P938 is ambidextrous and the P938 is just a bit larger and with the 7 rd mag feels better.
P938 has a longer slide and barrel.
Functionally there are a few differences between the two. The slide on the P938 is noticeably more difficult to cycle manually due to the heavier weight recoil spring, it is comparable to other small 9ís though and I didnít find it overly difficult. The recoil spring is of the flat coil persuasion, like the newer P238Ďs and is fairly difficult to get in and out of the gun while field stripping. The P938ís recoil is a bit more stout (vs P238) but not objectionable. The checkering on the P938 frame and grip is also much more aggressive, it could easily take the calluses off your feet. Removing the takedown pin is also more difficult than on the P238 and I honestly canít do it with out a tool. Some people gave the Nano a hard time for requiring a tool to field strip but even with a tool the P938 is harder to field strip.
I am not being critical of your post, just pointing out differences in the two and congratulations on your choice of weapon.
My wife and I really like ours.
