Sig Sauer P238 Usage & Features
Primary Use: Concealed Carry
Are you right handed or left handed? Right
What features does this gun have that appealed to you?
I do not have a lot of strength in my left hand and went searching (most importantly) for a gun which I could rack the chamber easily. I would go to stores and just attempt to rack guns in a concealable size. It wound up this and the Kimber solo. After comparing features and price I went with the Sig. A major deciding factor was I could not find a place to rent the Kimber and I wasn’t buying with out trying especially since I had heard that Kimber’s could be finicky with ammo brands. And I had some concern over the Kimber’s grip being right for me.
Tell us about shooting this gun:
Its a dream. Nite sites make it easy to get an accurate shot. Accuracy is amazing (and I am a beginner shooter). The day I tried this gun with a Hogue grip it came home! The cushy grip adds confidence in handling and accuracy. I want to be clear, this gun is accurate with and with out the Hogue grip, I had decided to get it before I tried the cushy grip, but afterwards there was nothing else to consider, it was to be mine.
How does it fit your hand, how do you like the sights, how difficult is it to rack the slide, how would you describe the trigger pull, and how would you describe the recoil?
Sliding the Rack was a major concern for me as I have trouble with my left hand and arm strength. I tried many many different guns, and this was the easiest for me. The trigger pull is great, easy, barely any kick/recoil. The gun fits my hand perfectly, I am on the shorter side. My daughter and husband love it too, so it is a comfortable gun for any size person.
How reliable is it?
Extremely accurate. Has never jammed.
Any problems with any type of ammunition? I prefer Winchester or Federal.
Does this gun have any specific ammunition requirements? If so, please explain: No.
What do you dislike about shooting this gun, if anything? I initially bought the extended magazine, but with a tight grip I kept ejecting it (not good) The regular magazine works great.
Was it easy to take down and clean? Yes, comes apart and goes back together easily.
Would you recommend this gun?
For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them?
Night sites are excellent! I was putting off my purchase because of the price with the Laser, no worries the gun is accurate and you shouldn’t rely on the laser anyways.
Anything else you would like to share about the gun?
LOVE love Love! Anyone that I have gone shooting with and tries Her buys Her 🙂
