I have gotten a few FTE issues with mine too. I'm still breaking it in. Going to try and get some federal and run it through and also some hornady hoping it will fix those issues.

My girlfriend has one, and we both love it.
She was debating between the sig and a lc9, after pulling the trigger on each she choose the sig hands down.

Oh, Man!
Why replace the lc9? It's a great gun. Excellent size for concealed carry, thin, shoots well, low recoil, ...

Maybe send it my way.

My wife uses the P238 for carry but would like to get the P938. I would like to get it for her if I could find a good price ...

I purchased a P938 with black annodized stainless metal parts and rosewood grips (serial no. 52A031xxxx) on 30 Dec 2012 from Academy Sports and Outdoors. I've never owned a Sig Sauer before but I am a real fan of the 1911 platform and I was looking for a small carry pistol. When I found the P938 it felt right in my hand and was just an incredibly beautiful little gun. I do wish I would have done a little more research about the gun before I bought it. Upon getting it home, I disassembled the gun, cleaned it up and gave it a light lube and then took it out to test it. I was shocked and disappointed at the incredible number of failure to ejects I got with this gun. At least once every clip, it would not discharge the spent casing before trying to feed another. I didn't get any stove pipes - I knew to hold the gun tight since it was so small. I tried a variety of ammo including Winchester "white box" 115gr FMJ, UMC 115 gr FMJ, Federal 115gr, as well as several others. It also seemed to shoot hard to the left. I also noticed that the clip was extremely hard to insert the rounds into and seemed to really cut up the primer end of the brass - It looked like the round had been through a garbage disposal!

I took it home and cleaned everything up thinking, maybe Sigs have a different break-in period than some of the other guns I have owned. I left the rounds in the factory 6-round clip for a few days and worked the slide a few hundred times. I then took it to the range a few days later and had the same experiences. I even had a live round fail to fire and jam in the barrel. I have never had a brand new firearm do this before and I am very disappointed in the gun, especially given the cost. I can't believe a gun manufacturer would turn out a gun with such problems in the litigious society in which we live. I'm not the type to file frivilous lawsuits, I'm just sayin'.

I called up Sig Sauer and the customer service rep I spoke with was friendly (albeit overly rushed to deal with my call it seemed) and sent me by e-mail a pre-paid Fedex label to send the gun back for reworking. I think they must know the drill by now with the P938's.

I should get the gun back in about two weeks and I certainly hope what returns is a better firearm than what I sent back...we'll see.

With any mfg you will get a bad one. My P238 has not had a single malfunction so I am having a hard time deciding to trade it in on a P938. I guess I will just have to buy a 938 and keep them both.

I'm hoping they do fix it. If I can get a properly functioning gun, it will be a keeper. Reading through the forums, it appears that Sig Sauer tries to make things right so that leaves me somewhat optimistic.

I'd like to get a 938 at some point. At the moment i own two Sigs, a P238 & a P238HD. They are great shooters with zero problems. I also use the extended 7 round mags.

I shot my brand new 938 yesterday. 150 rounds of 3 different makes, and only had one failure to load. It was early on in the session, and after that, not another problem.
