When I bought my P238 the salesman wondered if I would be interesting in waiting to buy until that Colt Mustang re-entered the market. I told him I didn't want to wait but I know my Sig P238 was designed much like that Mustang.

It's alright. You got better sights out of the deal buying the Sig. Also probably better reliability. I remember the old mustangs were just about a FMJ only gun.

I have a P-3AT. It runs flawlessly but I can't recommend it. To get it running perfect I had to go round and round with Kel Tec. No one should have to endure 5 months of bickering to get a $250 gun running right.

Wow!!! I totally agree with you. I'm surprised you endured for that long. if that would've been me, one month would be the most, if not sooner.

I bought a Walther PPK 380 to have an accurate pocket pistol. It is very nice. Later I picked up a Bersa for much less cost and in some ways it is even nicer....doc

Agree on the Sig P238.
I have an Elsie Pea and a P238 and the 238 has a better feel and less recoil.
Now we could get into the P938 but that's 9mm.

Apparently the Mustangs were made with mag capacity of 5rds. The +2 has a mag. capacity of 7rds.
