    SIG P938, purchased at the gun show in Albany yesterday, from a Eugene-area dealer. Been out twice with it and it shoots well, accurate as any of my pistols. The only problem has been light strikes that may be related to my hand-loads. I bought a box of Winch FMJ ammo and will try that out later this week. Other than that, I really like this pistol!

    I took it down prior to shooting it. The only problem was figuring out which way the recoil spring went and threading the rod through it and onto the slide. Otherwise, takedown and reassembly seemed straight forward.

    Also, I have had a couple other 9 mm sub compacts, LC9 and Taurus PT709. This SIG is much nicer to shoot, although for the price, it better be!

    That looks like the "Nitron" model I bought last month. Great pistol

    There is no right or wrong end on the recoil spring. The manual is out of date as Sig changed the recoil springs twice since the manual was released.
