    Is this close enough to a 1911 to go here? :confused:

    Anyways, SIG just put it up on their site. Basically the 938 is just a 238 in 9mm. From the stats the size difference is almost nothing.

    The P938 (9mm) is on top, the P238 (.380) is on bottom:

    I carry my P238 all the time. This is finally a pistol in 9mm I could get behind. MSRP does not mean much as I picked mine up from a Sig dealer for $320 NIB so if the 9mm becomes available for under $400 it would be a nice piece.

    I really want one. As the 238 in my area is about $480 new, I expect the 'in-store price' to be about $550-$600 for the 938. I'd pay that considering that the Kimber Solo is higher and its a DAO.

    In Georgia either, I paid right at $500 for my 238!! If I could get the 9mm close to that, I would do some trading!

    The 9mm will not be under $500, much less $400. We are direct with SIG, and the real retail price of the base 938 is $629, with variations a little higher. The P238 is about $100 less expensive across the board.

    Worth a look when they hit the shelves, I think. The guys at my local gun shop looked at them at the SHOT Show and and came away very impressed.

    My P238 was 569 I believe. If you can get them for 400 I will take 3.

    they had a special deal on 10 of them. I had been handling them enough to the point where they could almost not consider them new anymore. One of the clerks called me when the special price hit and I rushed down there. I bought number nine. By the time I got home and decided I should get the last one it was gone. It is the basic black model but for a daily carry piece I don't want flashy. Been carrying it now for a little over a year. Will have to stop by and let them know I am interested in the 9mm if the price drops like that again. This time I will get them all.
