Not one problem from my P938 after about 200 rds thru it.
The main problem from what I've come to understand is "limp wristing".

I've put around 500 rounds through mine the only problem I've had were the last 50 rounds I put through it I had a 4 FTFs, but I hadn't cleaned it and it was super cheap ammo. I'm going to probably take it to the range again this week and see if it does better now that I've cleaned it good.

Know your limits; exceed them often

That which does not kill me had better run pretty damn fast.

Sticks and stones may break my bones but hollow points expand on impact.

Needless to say I just shifted what ammo I carry, but I thought that was strange. I had used the Corbon in my Taurus 709, the Kahr CW9 and the XDSC with no problems.

Other than that it has been very reliable.
How did you fix the trigger?

If I plan on shooting a dirty firearm, I add few drops of lube in all the right places. Get a bore snake and run it thru the barrel after you fire it. It takes 40 seconds and makes good use of that time.

I'll keep that in mind, I usually clean them I was just being a slacker.

I hear it. It was a ritual for me when I was only shooting 1 pistol at the range. Now with 3 kids and 4 pistols when I get home I have more pressing things to attend to. But I just run a bore snake through them all when I get home. I will then clean them when I can get to them. But if I can't and the next range session comes I have a needle applicator that I use for hoppes oil and give them a few drops where they need it.

I had a P938 for 3 months. All I can say is that it would have been perfect but for the fact that it would fail to feed or extract with too much regularity. I sent it to Sig twice for warranty work. The first time I put 300 rounds through it to break it in. I would say 30% of the rounds failed to feed or extract. Another 10% I had light primer strikes. Sig replaced the extractor and the firing pin and shot 50 rounds with no issues. They sent me the flap from the ammo box as a subtle suggestion to use 124 grain FMJ. I did use 115 grain for that first 300 rounds. Upon receiving it, at great expense and pain I searched he'll and high water for 124 and 147 grain 9MM ammo. As most of u know its hard as hell to find 9MM ammo right now let alone a specific grain. But I persevered and took it to the range. The light strike was resolved but the failure to feed and extract continued although with much less frequency. I sent it back to Sig and they returned it with a report that they shot 100 rounds with no issues and that it must be an ammo or a shooter issue. I spent over 20 years in the Navy working security and own many guns. I would consider myself an experienced shooter. This gun just has unresolved issues and I can't trust it with my life so I sold it. I'm sure many will have a great experience with this gun but I didn't and got rid of it.
