Default A New 9mm

OK, again, I may be behind time, but I found something intriguing. I know the Sig P238 isn't actually a 1911, but it is quite similar. I have always like those little pistols, just haven't wound up with one yet. However, now Sig Sauer has introduced a P938. It appears to be a 238 in 9mm. Same package with more punch. My question is who knows anything about these. Is it to much "umph"? The 238 is small and petite, but if you put too much power into this little pocket rocket, how managable is it really going to be?

I test fired a p238 and there was almost no recoil. Ill be gettin one when I get my taxes back. I don't know what the 938 will be like but they did make it a lil bigger to compensate for the larger caliber

It's so new, may be tough finding a lot about it except from some gun rag that's paid to say what they say. With my weak wrists, don't think I'll risk it. My PF9 Keltec is giving me fits & I don't think I need more of the same.

I just became aware of this gun less than 24 hours ago. I have been hesitating to get a 238 because I hadn't seen one in person, and am debating going to a 380. Yesterday, I got my hands on the 238, and I was impressed! But the salesman mentioned that Sig had a new one in 9mm. So. Off to the LGS to see if he can find a 938......

The 238s are def awesome looking guns. I haven't seen a 938 yet, I would think they would be hard to find. Good luck.

It's a 9mm sig. I wouldn't be so concerned with recoil. Price of a sig and size for a pocket pistol would concern me more.

When I think of any 1911 I think of a .45acp. To me there is only one caliber that a 1911 should be and it,s a .45acp. Now if one wants a really good 9mm and there are many, my choice is the Walther P99 and PPQ. both in 9mm. And I had Kimber 1911s .45acp but now own Colts two in .45acp. To me Colts are the only real honest as John Browning Designed the 1911 Mfg. today.
