A former owner’s review of a Sig P232.
I wanted to give my review of a Sig P232 (.380 ACP) that I owned for about a year and a half. I hope that this is useful for anyone thinking about buying a concealed carry pistol.
While I did just trade this gun, I want to say that is was not because of a fault with the gun, more of a personal feeling.
During the time I owned the gun it never failed to fire and the only time it jammed was when I put about 300 rounds thought it in one sitting. The ammo was pretty dirty and it needed a cleaning to be back in business.
I found it to be a well made gun, easy to disassemble, clean, and re-assemble. The fit and finish was incredible. It never felt loose or like it was going to come apart in my hands. A word of warning, when cleaning watch out for this one clip/spring that will come flying out if you are not careful, took me an hour to find the thing after it flew across my basement.
The reason I got rid of it was personal. The gun didn’t really fit my hands that well (medium to large) and found my self thinking too much when I was aiming it. Given that was for carry purposes, that thinking time could be dangerous. However people who I loaned it to with smaller hands never had a problem with it. Within the last couple of months it started to just not feel right in my hands.
So when it is all said and done, I have to say that the Sig P232 is a great gun, but not a good match for me. If you are considering one, I can recommend it and don’t think it is a bad choice. Do be careful with the magazine, I lost count of the blood blisters when my pinky was in the wrong place.
