Default New Sig P238

Picked up this morning. Included extended 7 round mag, extra mag, holster, night sights.

I was sold by the way it felt in my hand just like I was sold on the M&P 9FS!

Can't wait to shoot!!!

Just won a Rainbow version for my wife on gun broker.com waiting for it to be shipped.
What did you have to pay if you don't mind me asking.

I've got the Sports12 version with the TFO front/tritium only rear and the Hogue grips. The palm swell and finger bump make it very comfortable to shoot and don't interfere with concealability. I'd recommend the grips on any version of the P238, I carry it IWB in a cheap Tagua leather holster which surprisingly works very well and for me is much preferable to the pocket holster that it came with.

I really think I'm going to like it, feels great in my hand. Very comfortable one handed with the extended mag, can get all three fingers on.

I traded a couple of guns for it that I just didn't enjoy shooting. Just cleaned it and I'm ready to go!!!

Retail for $640ish but I traded for it.

Two mags (one 7 shot extended), holster, night sights. I think it's a little more for the finish too.

FDW, welcome to the Sig side of the world. I have six Sigs, no brag, just like'em.
I will stay with the S&W for all of my wheelgun needs, but Sigs for the auto side of my life.

Enjoy and good luck.

Thanks, and here's how it went down. I had two guns I wanted to trade so I headed out to the store actually wanting the new glock 380. Well the fellow said they had 12 people on a waiting list so I started looking and saw this pretty P238 Scorpion. Once I put it in my hand I was sold. Love the night sights too and since I've never had a 1911 here is my chance (sorta).
