There’s this company called SIG Sauer that makes guns.
They make good ones, I might add. They bought the rights to the Colt Mustang, made a couple of modifications and released it to the world as the SIG P238.
It’s a tiny 1911 that’s chambered in .380 ACP. Like the 1911, it’s a single action, semi-auto pistol with a manual safety and slide release lever. SIG also ships them with their glow in the dark night sights.
Introduced in 2009, the Sig Sauer P238 is a single-action only (SOA), sub-compact semi automatic handgun chambered in .380 ACP. It was released as an updated and upgraded version of the original Colt Mustang. The P238 is currently offered in 22 – yes 22! – unique versions which vary in price from $599 to $850. There is something for everyone in this line of pistols. The frames are available in either anodized aluminum or stainless steel, which does affect the weight, and to some extent the reliability of the model. I have purchased two of these pistols – an aluminum frame for my mom and a stainless steel framed HD for my sister.
One firearm that my mother decided on as an everyday carry is the Sig Sauer P238. She purchased the Extreme Model, which is no different from the other P238’s, aside from the difference in paint job and grips. I’ve had the privilege to both shoot and handle this firearm extensively since she purchased it last year; and I have to say as far as concealable firearms go, this one is one among the best.
