Not Your Average "Mouse" Gun. The Sig Sauer P238 is different than most other .380 "pocket" pistols on the market today. In terms of size and shape, the P238 is very similar to other comparable micro .380's. But instead of a polymer frame (as seen on most competing designs), the P238 uses an all metal frame and is single action. The Sig Sauer P238 is essentially a scaled down version of the Colt 1911 in every direction, and is almost identical in appearance to the legendary Colt Mustang.

The hammer must be cocked back either manually, or by the action of the slide, to fire every shot. The advantage to this operation is two- fold. First and foremost, similar to the Colt 1911 or Mustang, the Sig Sauer has a superior trigger pull when compared to double action autos. In turn, this leads to greater accuracy.

Second, the P238's single action design allows Sig Sauer to incorporate a high ride beavertail grip frame, which leads to greater control under recoil by safely placing the shooter's hand up higher along the bore axis. This generous beavertail grip also protects the web of the hand between the shooter’s thumb and trigger finger, and the hammer recesses into the beavertail section, to avoid any chance of hammer or slide-bite while firing.

In addition to being a great-looking pistol, the Sig Sauer P238 is much easier to load than other micro pistols on the market. For shooters that do not possess strong hands, it's smooth and easy slide is one of its greatest features. There are also positive vertical serrations on the back of the slide that further enhance loading and unloading.

The slide locks to the rear on an empty magazine, and the slide latch release is easy to reach with the thumb of the shooting hand. Similarly, it has a user friendly manual thumb safety which further enhances shooter usability.

However, there is no grip or magazine safety. While the 1911 is a "cocked-and-locked" design, the P238 is actually "cocked-and-unlocked". In other words, the slide can essentially be moved back and forth while the thumb safety remains engaged. This engineering design feature allows for the safe loading or unloading of the pistol.

This Sig Sauer P238 package weighs in at a mere 15.2 ounces and has a black Nitron slide that is extremely corrosion and wear resistant. In case you are unfamiliar with Nitron, this is Sig's term for the Ionbond finish that is administered at a specialty coating company's third party facility.

Ionbond is a firearms finish that is applied through a Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) process. This involves the depositing of diamond-like carbon coatings via a vacuum, and results in a finish that will provide years of protection against wear while retaining a nice appearance.

To prevent abrasion of clothing or skin, the slide and sharp edges have been rounded. With a 2.7" barrel and a six round magazine, the P238 includes a lightweight aluminum alloy frame to further maximize concealed carry.

Stippled grips provide a secure hold while firing the pistol. Overall, the Sig Sauer P238 is an ultra compact, lightweight, reliable and user friendly handgun that is made here in the U.S.A.
