I’ve been trying to get my hands on a Sig P938 for a long time (over a year). For some reason, they are rarer than hen’s teeth. Everywhere I’ve checked they have been out of stock. This is the 9mm version of Katie’s 380 Caliber Sig Sauer P238 handgun.

I probably paid a bit over the top for it, but I’m okay with that to finally get one. It’s a superb looking handgun, shoots well, and is very accurate. It’s a single-action only mechanism, with a thumb safety (no de-cocker), and firing pin block. It’ll hold seven or eight rounds depending on which magazine I use (six or seven rounds in the magazine, plus one in the chamber).

The Sig is half the weight of my Beretta, and I’m planning on it taking over from the Beretta as my backpacking handgun. This evening I did a quick basic strip down, cleaned and very lightly oiled it ready for its first trip down the range.

The odd-looking maroon bullets seen below are ‘Snap caps’ dummy rounds for practice use plus testing the feed and ejection mechanism. I also use them to protect the firing pin when ‘dry firing.’
