    Some pics of my fairly new P938 "Nitron"

    The "Nitron" seems to be the same as the model "Blackwood" without the wood grips. I wanted the two tone model as the all black ones just seem too black to me.
    $635. shipped to my FFL

    I have shot over 400 rounds of 115gr FMJ with no ejection issues and no jams. It also handled my Spear Gold Dot 124gr bonded hollow points fine as well. So I think I got a good shooter that won't need to go back to Sig like some of the early models did. I stripped off all the factory oil and hot applied Froglube on every surface and part. I did this before I ever fired it.
    Unfired the trigger pull was in the low 8s and kind of gritty.

    As I always seem to do, I have started to do some work on mine:

    Improving the shot placement: :gun02:
    Sig laser from a 238, say what you like but this REALLY improves my shot placement with this pistol
    Hogue wrap around rubber grips, like the laser, these are all about improving the shot placement
    Removed all the internals and stoned and polished all moving parts. trigger bar, sear, disconnector, hammer.
    Tweaked the sear spring, should reduce the trigger pull, but until I get my custom SS replacement trigger installed I can't test this.
    SS trigger will also be polished. (which is why there is no trigger showing in the pics)


    Cosmetics: :rolleyes:
    Polished the hammer and barrel to bright, also the grip screws and the extractor, cause I just like it that way
    Polished just the front edges on the slide stop, mag release, and manual safety
    Selective polishing on the slide sides, cause I just like it that way
    BTW, the polished areas look "rainbow" in the pics, but that is just the camera/flash angle.

    Also bought five new Sig 7rd mags and sold the 6rd one.

    :laugh: It is a stealth trigger :cool:

    My plastic trigger was sent out to a nice guy in Tillamook who builds custom SS triggers for him to make a drawing of it.

    Yeah, ok, honestly figured you must still be working on it, but you never know what you're gonna find on the internet. :D

    If anyone is interested in these CNC Stainless Steel triggers for the P238 or P938 you should contact Glen at partsproduction@oregoncoast.com
    He has these in bare stainless as well as black ones.
    No relation to me, just a nice guy with a quality product.

    Great job Jim. I love what you did with the slide. IMHO it really makes the look of the gun. Congratulations on a "standard" Sig done right! Happy shooting...
