The SIG Sauer P938 and I had a torrid love affair, but it was just enough to know we definitely need a second date. SIG’s P938 is a locked breech, tilting barrel single-action only semi-automatic sub-compact handgun chambered in 9mm. I really like the fact that the gun is all metal and aluminum, except for the grips. It’s a refreshing change from all the polymer-framed concealed carry guns on the market. The frame is aluminum alloy and the slide is 416 stainless steel. Weighing in at 16 ounces unloaded, it is difficult to compare the P938 to other guns, as there are not many metal-framed sub-compacts to compare it to. The Kel-Tec P11 is lighter at 14 ounces, while the Bersa Thunder 9 and Kahr MK9 are considerably heavier at 23 and 22.1 ounces respectively. I shot the model that SIG calls “Nightmare”—an all-black version minus the matte nickel controls.
