Yep, it's not looking good. I actually have a gun.deals tab open in my browser and refresh it daily, as I've been trying to get my hands on a P238 Nitron since the beginning of this year. Literally only one online retailer (GrabAGun) had one in stock this entire time. EuroOptic is taking backorders, but after reaching out to them they told me they only got a single shipment back around May and it went straight to one of the customers that previously placed a backorder.Yes, but two p238 models have discontinued marked on them with only one “the Nitron” left till the end of the year
Strangely enough SIG has also been manufacturing previously discontinued models with 2021 manufacture dates (you can find evidence of this on GunBroker). It's like they're releasing limited quantities of older models from spare parts they happen to have. The P238 Extreme has made an appearance twice recently. Currently two retailers also have the Army Green model with hogue grips in stock. I've also seen the Purple "PSP" one come back in stock earlier this year. As well as the Nickel, Rainbow, Stainless Steel "HD", and Sports 12 models. But they've only been available in very limited quantities (typically between 1-4).
