  1. Orientation of P238 recoil spring

    P238, P938 Pistol
    Sorry if this is a noob question! :huh: After disassembling the slide of my P238 for cleaning, I noticed orange paint on the first two or three coils of the spring. Apart from the paint I've been unable to discern any difference between the two ends of the spring. Does the paint indicate which...
  2. Dirty New P238

    P238, P938 Pistol
    Just took delivery of a new P238 HD. When I got the pistol home, I of course began to look at it closely. It was filthy! Under the safety lever was a huge glob of dark grease/oil. I began to clean it and found the interior fouled with carbon. It took quite a while to clean it and a lot of q-tips...

    P238, P938 Pistol
    Hi Folks, I am a new Sig owner enjoying learning the ins and outs of a P238. After putting it through its paces at the range it has been interesting to see what it likes and what it does not. Monarch Brass Case, 94gr FMJ - loves it. Over 150 rounds no issues Monarch Steel Case, 94gr FMJ -...

    P238, P938 Pistol
    Hi, I’m new here and this is my second post. I have a couple of questions regarding my beloved P238, but first a little background. I’m still a novice and have been looking into purchasing a laser dry firing system. That way I can practice my aim more frequently when I cannot get out to the...
  11. P238 Red Laser Question or Observations

    P238, P938 Pistol
    Hello, I have a P238 and decided to use the SIG Sauer laser that came with the pistol. I am new to using laser sights on a weapon. So try to be gentle with my knowledge. The Laser was very easy to setup and adjust. After depressing the recessed power switch the laser takes about 60 - 150...

    I own a P238 TSS-CA and want to replace the trigger. I cannot for the life of me get the trigger pin out. Any suggestions or tricks? I heard the pin may be tapered--if so, which direction should it be removed? I have tried cupped punches and hit it pretty firmly--no visible movement...
  13. P238 ejection problem

    P238, P938 Pistol
    Got the wife a NIB P238 for Defense. (The Pretty Purple one). She's small and up until this point has only fired a Ruger SR22. Last time we went to the range, we brought the SIG. She hands it to me and said she wanted me to fire it first so she would know what to expect. I fired the factory 6 rd...

  15. Do you own a P238?

    P238, P938 Pistol
    This thread is related to another thread I started regarding what seems to be excessive wear on my new P238, however it isn't a duplicate post (at least, I don't consider it to be) because this one has a different purpose. I'm extremely interested in seeing other P238 owner's barrel and frame...

    P238, P938 Pistol
    Hey all, I'm a new Sig owner, just took possession of my brand new Sig P238 SAS this past Tuesday. I even got to cut the zip tie on the case! (And let me tell you, as someone who has OCD, being able to "break" the factory seal is soooo satisfying!). But anyway, I've yet to take it to the range...

  20. P238, Then P938 - Guns I love to Hate!

    P238, P938 Pistol
    Let me preface this with admitting I bought my first Glock in 1994. I wasn’t a regular shooter until roughly 2011, and along the way I’ve been through a few Glocks, a Ruger Mk III, and a Smith Shield. In the course of time I quit shooting the Ruger, for its point of aim was simply too far away...
