Sig P938 Mighty Mouse

My Sig P938 really is a Mighty Mouse of a compact 9mm.


Although the P938 comes in a dazzling array of psychedelic colors, now, I chose the BRG (black rubber grip) version for practical reasons. For one, the grip mates up perfectly with the extended 7 round mags (other versions use a 6 round mag) to actually create another finger groove. This makes the gun all the easier to control and comfy to shoot.

But that's not why I call my P938 Mighty Mouse. Nope, this is a Mighty Mouse of a compact because of its awesome accuracy and ease of shooting. In short, compared to a 38 J frame S&W which I carried for a long time and which weighs in that same 15 ounce ball park, I've been able to more than double my effective accuracy range and by that I mean being able to keep most shots in a 3" bull at a given distance. In fact, the P938 takes me well past typical self-defense distances with its accuracy, enough to make it a pretty decent little woods carry gun. Honestly, if there's a more accurate and more shootable 15 ounce gun out there, I have yet to find it.


Part of the credit for this ease of shooting goes to the excellent Sig night sights on the P938. Whereas most little guns like this have miserable fixed sights that are little more than a notch in the frame and a bump on the end of the barrel, the P938 gets you sights that are worthy of a full size gun.


Here's some samples of what my P938 Mighty Mouse can do.








As for reliability? Hey, this is a Sig. It has NEVER jammed, not even with cheap bulk 9mm ammo. This little Mighty Mouse of a Sig P938 may not be the prettiest thing I own, but when it comes to a truly concealable carry gun, it's the first one I grab.

Those little bundles of perfection are the most concealable, accurate and best quality ever for a tiny 9mm.

Good on Sig! Great shoot'n too!

Yup, a girl's best friend, for sure. Been thinking of adding another one in a more fashionable color for fancy events.

Very nice pistol.. great review as always.
I have drooled on a few of these. I have shot it's little prother in 380. The P238 is a sweet shooter, I was testing out pocket guns and rented a Ruger LCP and the Sig. I fired 10 rounds with the Ruger when I knew it was off the list. I shot a total of 90 rounds with the Sig it was that much fun to shoot.
The 938 is still on my list of guns I really want.

Have often consider going with the 238 just because I also enjoy shooting the little 380, Seabee. Had pal back in the 80s who owned a Colt Mustang in 380 and we had a lot of fun with that little gun. I know the little cartridge gets a lot of negative comments, but I do think it is still useful for some types of self-defense scenarios and a lot of gals do well with it.

Super review . Mac will love it it has a hammer and it is a Sig . Here a good review between the Glock 43 and Sig 938 . I'm not fond of the 9mm or single stack guns but I'm very impressed with the 938 and I need to go to my LGS and fondle one . I like it don't have a grip safety . The recoil spring is it a single spring or a dual spring ?????

I would like to get a 938 but then, I'd like a P225 also! Choices! The only reason I have the LCP is that is was given to me.

Great shooting!!

Thanks, guys. Glad you liked the report.

The 938 uses a single recoil spring. Pretty simple gun, but that's a plus in my book. So is the fact that this is an all metal gun. Typical Sig. Feels good in the hand.

The 9mm is not my preferred cartridge, either, but it makes sense in a gun this small. Plus, I already have a couple compact 1911s in 45 auto as some you may have seen in my previous post. The recoil with the P938 is simply a non-issue for me, but for the recoil shy, the P238 in 380 is basically the same gun.

It is single action, only, but that also means a decent trigger. Most of these little guns show with fairly stout trigger pulls, though crisp. Very 1911-ish in feel. If you do a little cherry picking, though, as I did with mine, you can find one with a very nice trigger. I'd rate mine at about 4 pounds. Just right for me, since that's what most of my 1911s run. In fact, this little gun's similarity to the 1911 platform is why I chose it. I like consistency in all the guns I carry.

The safety is a thumb safety, but it is positive, meaning it clicks in and out, firmly. Little chance of it accidentally disengaging, but if carrying with hammer cocked bothers you, you could easily improvise a strap over the hammer setup. You can also leave the safety on when operating the slide with the hammer already cocked, but not with the hammer in the down position.

Lastly, these are not cheap. Even the magazines are crazy expensive. They are Sigs, after all. Being such a diehard Sig fan, well worth it for me for the quality, but I can certainly understand that the prices may scare off others. For this class of gun, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend one of the little polymer guns on the market in other brands if you can't swing the price on a 938.
