I would wait on one. if there anything like the 238's when they first came out it will take around a year and 1/2 for sig to ge them right.

Waiting for them to work out the bugs is sound advice. Wish I had listened. My first day at the range resulted in the thing losing its slide release after 6 clips. Just fell out. Calling in the AM for shipping instructions.

I just got mine P938 SAS. I love it but, waiting for my extended Mag. I took it out but, had quite a few fte problems. After reading about some of the problems reported here I was sure that I had a Lemon. I then took it back and cleaned it, and tried WWB115 Grains "fm Walmart" had a few problems FTE etc.. I then remembered to get a grip, no limp wrist etc. The next 12 Mags were error free, I'm sold great gun. I also have the P238 which my wife has taken over as her own......

Grip is everything with these little guns.
You will see yours improve about 300 rounds. Trigger gets smoother and gun just feels better. While breaking try to run sone 124 grain thru it.

My new 938 dated Nov. 17 has had peculiar results on the first couple trips to the range.
Running UMC 115gr cartridges, I had multiple double feeds. No FTEs, just double feeds. I have to remove the magazine to clear the problem.
Next I went to American Eagle 124gr and it performed flawlessly. Next went back to PWC 115 gr. and again, flawless. Finally thought I'd give the UMC another chance and no go.
After about 300 rounds, only one FTE but numerous double feeds, all with the UMC.
I have read a lot about FTEs and FTFs, but nothing about double feeds. Is this unusual?
Thanks to all.

As I remember the double feed issue is with new stiff magazines.
Leave em full awhile and the issue may go away with use.

Interesting, slogans. What kind of ammo are you using?
I broke it in with American eagle 124 about 300 rounds. After that I have run wwb 115, umc 115,and gold dots. It has run on everything I have thrown at it. Funny thing my wifes M&P 9mm chocked on the umc 115 would not run at all my 938 ate it up:D

New user here and new P938 owner as of yesterday. Extreme edition.

Took it to the range today, shot around 130 rounds of mixed rounds, remington 115gr UMC, Federal Classic Hi-Shok JHP 115gr, 135gr Hydra Shoks, and 50 rounds of range reloads...

Not one hiccup! Was worried as there has been many reports of failures, happy to say none here!

MUUUCH prefer the 7 round mag, the 6 rounder takes some getting use to.

It is more accurate than I am, def need some practice with something this small. My thumbs are in pain, the magazines fight you every step of the way while loading, need to get a loader for sure.

The flyers were the flush mag..
