I don't think anyone is saying it IS a 1911. Just that it is similar to one. Personally, I cannot afford to either buy 45 Auto ammo, and cannot conceal that gun one me. I'm way too small for that. Seems to me that the 938 is the perfect answer. I have had no interest in Sig untill recently, but their quality sounds excellent. I agree: you get what you pay for.

Bud's recently had them for $645 (they're sold out).

For the level of quality and finish that accompanies alloy Sigs, and then adding in Night Sights, that's really not such a bad price. Probably an outstanding gun.

I would be very interested in a range report from someone who owns the P938.

I set my gun dealer to work yesterday hunting one down. We'll see what he finds. I'd consider mid 600's not bad at all. I bet they won't be available, though.

Do a Google "shopping" search for Sig 938. I think you'll find that quite a few online retailers have them available for real close to $625, and in various finishes as well.

I talked to a Sig rep today. He stated that he did not know when the 938 will be out. He said they will be built in either Exeter, NH, or at their new manufacturing facility in Portsmouth, NH. Sounds like Portsmouth is not quite up and running, though.
Now, their literature lists 4 model variations for this gun, But I have heard there is 5. I have seen the 5th one, called the Nightmare or something, and got the impression it has already been released. Anyone have any info on that?

It was somewhat amusing, too. The guy is standing there at an open house for a gun shop, and he has on his table some catalogs, Sig sticks, and some business cards. NO GUNS!! Everybody else brought guns...........
