I'd avoid taking it apart at all, even to clean. It''s small enough, just hose it down with a can cleaner. If you must take it apart, mark the spring's orientation 1st. If you get the spring in backwards, you turn the mag into a 5 shot instead of 6. I discovered the problem before I shot it, so I don't know if it would affect functioning.
This doesn't bother me a bit. I learned this with one of my Firestars. I learned very well a long time ago to pay close attention to the things I take apart.

Thanks for the reply, balance is very important to me.
I have the 938 Extreme, no regrets on my purchase.

LOL, very true. Now that I know this, I'm good. BUT, it says in the manual that you can/should take it apart for cleaning. So they should make it so you can do so without a fight. OR, just say to leave it together to clean. Or, give better instructions, and comment that you need about an hour and a half.

Indeed!, much agreed. I wonder if there isn't a simple solution I might tinker with it a bit.

Just sold a 938 Rosewood and I was impressed with it. My only issue with the gun is the safety seemed a bit to short which I'm sure can be overcome with some practice. Overall, a real nice carry gun.

The problem is that the follower fits in the mag very snug in most directions. It slides freely up and down, but there is not a lot of play in any other direction. To get it out, it has to come through the top. So, it has to tilt to clear the feed lips, and then the front of the mag is in the way. It's one of those catch 22's. There actually has to be some force applied to get it to clear. Not good. The best solution would be for Sig to make the bottom removable, like on a lot of other mags. For my money, it's not a large or complicated mag, and it's 100% metal, so I'll just hose it down with a harsh cleaner, and use compressed air to blow dry. Done and Done.

Ohhhhh, I do now. Good reason. The guy I deal with wants to take everything home, and often does. I bust his chops and tell him he can't make any money filling his own safe....
