    I just got back from the range with mine and I had zero issues.



  2. Jack Latta on August 20, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    I’ve had no issues. At all. I always wonder why this gun doesn’t come up more in micro 9s or sub-compact lists.

    Can’t call it. I absolutely love mine, never had a single issue. Sad yours has been a dud



  3. נוח יחזקאל on August 20, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    Same feed problems with a S&W CSX. How does the Kimber Micro 9 with hollow points?



  4. dreamer88lpb on August 20, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    There probably isn’t anything wrong with your pistol. Most feeding issues are due to faulty magazines. Try disassembling, cleaning, lubing, and reassembling your magazines and give it another go around. Another solution is running a different magazine through it. Most feeding issues can be resolved with replacing or running a different magazine. If it corrects the issue then toss the original magazine to the side. If that doesn’t fix it then you just have a nice paper weight lol.

    I don’t know where you bought that but mine had the flush mag and extended mag out the box, I have never had a failure to shoot either.

    I bought a P238 Equinox years ago at gun show. Came to the same conclusion: It couldn’t be trusted as an everyday carry. It broke my heart, because it was the most beautiful pistol that I ever owned, even to this day. I ended up selling it years later for a fraction of what I paid for it. Love the Sig P226/228/229 pistols, but wouldn’t recommend this pistol.



  7. jw34482 on August 20, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    I bought one like it so I bought my son one he likes it we both carry it



  8. Lostin MIA on August 20, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    I would carry one as a back up finish’m off tool for sure after 1000 clean rounds. Super concealable and a sharp shooter. My sister has the Nitro..500 rounds no issues.



  9. Barry Perdue on August 20, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    Owned my p938 about 6yrs. Carry it most days, very reliable, EXTREMELY accurate. Have fired about 2000 rds. thru it. It certainly has a home.



  10. PJ on August 20, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    ProMag Sig Sauer P938 9MM 10-Round Magazine, brand new. Only load nine rounds and you won/t have problems.



  11. Chase Eckert on August 20, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    I’ve had mine for about 6 years, put 6,000+ rounds through it. I had a handful of failures to feed in the beginning, but it hasn’t happened since before the first 1,000 rounds. I love this thing and trust it with my life. The extended magazine is definitely a must-have for a good grip. With that, it feels like it was tailor made for my hand.



  12. joseph shahbazi on August 20, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    this guy is paid to talk shit about this gun
    i’ve owners mine for years and it has never failed to feed
    i shot over thousand rounds through it and i don’t even know how to clean the gun
    so fuck you asshole for your bullshit review



  13. Michael Lewis on August 20, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    I have 2, never had a issue of any kind. Just buy a extended magazine . It’s one of my favorite pistols. I don’t understand why people buy small CC pistol and complain about it? It’s small for a reason. I am a big guy, 6’3" 260lbs with gorilla hands and have no problem with the P938. Don’t be a crybaby! Sell it and get a slingshot! LoL 😂



  14. tomas tomas on August 20, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    Everytime someone reviews small pistol i hear the same – nowhere to put finger because of the short handle 😏 But hey people, for all the fingers to place on you need fullsize or compact pistol, which has of course different purpose than pocket pistol. So no wonder that some finger(s) stay off the handle. And with extended magazine you loose main advantage of the pistol. Just saying, no offence 🙂 The different story is to carry pocket pistol and have spare magazine with the extention, this type of carrying is quite practical 😏 Btw great video 👍



  15. Chad on August 20, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    I’ve owned a P938 For over 5 years, and have shot thousands of rounds through the pistol using five different factory mags. Amazingly i can’t recall ever having a single failure of any type over 5 years of ownership. Sorry to say, I think you guys got a lemon!



  16. TheRobman139 on August 20, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I’ve got the Springfield Armory 911 in .380 ACP, essentially the same design made by a competitor. Had it for 3 1/2 years now. There are a couple of other guns I carry now and again but this is what I carry 90% of the time.

    First couple hundred rounds I was having some failures to go into battery and light primer strikes. After that, it was very reliable, with either six or seven round mags.

    One important thing I learned from a guy who helped run the range I was shooting at had to do with the best way to clean this particular type of pistol. He said don’t use too much CLP-type oily cleaners, but instead use a non oil based cleaner like Birchwood Casey “Gun Scrubber”, especially on the slide assembly. I took his advice and the problems disappeared. I’ve got probably 2000 rounds through it now and as long as I clean it every 100-150 rounds, it is as reliable as the day is long.



  17. BK on August 20, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    I got mine on sale at Bass Pro. 2017. $475 came with 2 mags. One bigger one. shot over 1000 rounds thru it. never a problem and I have a 238.

    I also now have the 10-round extended after-market mags.

    Honestly, this video sucks, you should be banned from ever buying or shooting a Sig.
    keep your keltech bro



  18. Lanolin410 on August 20, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Zero issues of FTF you’ve described, Extremely reliable and fun to shoot. Cheers!



  19. Hans Zarkov, Ph.D. on August 20, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Any probs with this gun over micro 9?, stove pipes, finicky on ammo type etc, im torn between the 2



  20. Hans Kurtmann on August 20, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    You got a lemon and you really gotta lean on Sig use a different rep or supervisor. I had this problem a few times with a few of my 25 or so Sig long and hand guns in my 30yr collection. Don’t ask TELL them. Been shooting for 40 years sometimes you get the lamest tech etc. Good luck



  21. Michael Wilson on August 20, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    So far I haven’t had any issues with mine. However I did have the Kimber Micro 9 and straight out of the box it failed every 3rd or 4th round. The take down pin would walk out and cause the slide to not cycle. Very disappointing for a $900 pistol. So I traded it for the P938. I carry the Sig or my Taurus GX4 daily no issues with either pistol.



  22. Tim Villwock on August 20, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Mine came with rubber Hogue grips and the extended mag.



  23. TZ TZ on August 20, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Good for non fat fingered operators. Excellent smooth shooter.



  24. jacob Evans on August 20, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Thats strange the failure to feed i have never had a problem with mine i also have an extended mag that makes it a whole lot easier to hold and fire



  25. Trooper676 on August 20, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    It’s funny, my kimber was the one having FTF issues. I sent it up the road.



  26. RidgeRunner on August 20, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    I love mine but hate to decock it !



  27. Publicenemy#1 on August 20, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Same dude that dailys a keltec



  28. Robert Reinsch on August 20, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    I bought a P938 Legion used. Came with 3 7+1 mags (extended). No shooting, feeding, or ejection issues at all. Only issues were 2 of the 3 mags would not hold 7 rounds. I took the mags apart and cleaned them. One of them looked like the spring was reversed. After reassembly, 1 holds 7 the other almost 7 (still working with this one). Purchased 2 more 7 round mags – both easily hold 7. Stippling was a bit aggressive so I put on Talon grips. Love the single action and trigger. Very 1911-ish.



  29. Madmac96 on August 20, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    I bought one in 2014. Never had any failure to fire problems. I did have the top of the guide rod unscrew itself. Didn’t unscrew all the way, but noticed it was very loose after shooting at the range. Also had the front sight come clean off while shooting. Both things I fixed myself. Still have it and use as carry. It was very expensive at $800.00, and would have expected better from Sig. Mine did come with one extended mag and one regular mag.



  30. Jason Dismuke on August 20, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    I pocket carry mine with a lazer. Springfield mags are great for getting around the sig tax. Mine also came with the extended mag.



  31. Ed Wyatt on August 20, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    I got two mags with mine with one being extended.



  32. Mini.14 on August 20, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    I have the p938 combat version ext mag x5 3 of which I purchased for $44.95 each viridian light laser ECR set up with ECR holster never had a problem and I’ve trained massively with it



  33. Feelix the Gloving Giraffe on August 20, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    I keep playing with my wife’s 238 and it feels so good I’m skeptical of the 9s reliability though but I still want one



  34. Gary Plumb on August 20, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    Go buy an extended mag cheap ass



  35. Howard Laurie on August 20, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    This is my EDC & has been for several years. I presently own 2 of them, each is mounted with a laser. I trust it to protect my life. I also purchased one for my daughter to carry, which she does every day. When each of these were bought they ALL came with both an extended mag & the shorter mag. These mags NEED to be broken-in to loosen the springs!! I loaded the mags & left them loaded for 3 days. I then loaded & unloaded them several times. Since then I’ve had 0 failures. Each also came with hard wooden grips AND rubber grips with finger grooves. I use the rubber grips for general shooting practice & OWB carry. I use the hard wood grips for pocket carry (which I much prefer). FABULOUS GUN!!



  36. C-Dog, NEXTLEVEL M/C ATL. on August 20, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    On the 938 polished the ramp or no hollow points and you won’t have an issue



  37. Mix Better Now on August 20, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    I have the 2 tone custom shop SAS version (not the new sight) and mine came with 2, 7 round mags in the box. Kimber also makes 8 round mags that work equally well in the 938 which are great spares in a NeoMag or 2. I have zero issues getting a 3 finger grip and mine has been 100% reliable. It’s my go to summer/hot weather deep carry. I also carry a 43x year round too. No reason this isn’t a phenomenal carry gun. Extremely shootable and ergonomic. Love my 938 SAS from the Custom Shop. Just hearing lame excuses here.



  38. L M on August 20, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Only had issues with V-point hollow points, that seem to snag and FTF. Perhaps to polish the ramp (there’re faded machining marks) out, it would eliminate the issue, but I don’t like that (Hornady) ammo anyway.



  39. Mack Lack on August 20, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    Out of the box mine was a disaster. Continuous Fail to Feed nose dives on the feed ramp. To Sig’s credit they went entirely through the gun and fixed the problem.



  40. Grodd70 on August 20, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    That is unfortunate, on yours had reliability issues. I’ve carried one as backup and CCW and it’s never had a failure and that is even with garbage lead free ammo as well. I too was pleasantly surprised how well the gun handled recoil, I felt it being so light weight and tiny that it would be a handful with 9mm. It is a very accurate little gun. I also carried a Walther PPS m2 which I love BUT its downfall for me is it is just a bit too heavy. It makes for a great shooter but just enough weight I always know its there. The Sig Sauer P938 on the other hand, so light there are times I have to glance check because I can’t even feel it.



  41. Rob Marquette on August 20, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    I saw your video titled " coolest gun I would NEVER carry" so I had to click on to see why.
    We purchased our 1st P938 for my wife. She LOVES it. She shoots amazingly well with it and it is comfortable enough that she has no qualms about carrying it, which is the most important factor to me when it comes to her side arm.
    Well being a South Paw in a right handed world poses lots of different issues and obstacles for us when it come to firearms. (You rightys will never fully understand or comprehend our pain) This weapons ambidextrous feature is 2nd to none. In fact, it is so nice we had no choice other than to purchase our 2nd P938 because the wife got fed up with me always having HER gun. And we are about to purchase a third. Just because.
    I have shot hundreds and hundreds of rounds of every type of ammo. Standard, personal defense, hollow points, u name it and I have shot it. And I have NEVER, not one time, had any issues or fails from either one of the weapons.
    I completely understand and would feel the exact same way you do had I had tbe issues you have.
    When it comes to the well being and safety of my family and loved ones, I DON’T gamble or take risks. I ONLY carry what I can rely on 100%. It’s tbe difference between your name being in tbe paper or on a head stone.
    My suggestion would be get Sig or a very skilled gunny to take a look at it again because I think there is something wrong with yours. I’d bet my life on it.



  42. Timothy Demott on August 20, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    sounds like you got a dud… i’ve had mine since 2015 and only ever had one jam. it was the crapiest tula ammo though and after inspecting the shell there was a nick on the side which i think caused the jam.

    mine also came with two magazines out of the box, a flush 6rd and an extended 7rd. not sure if maybe that’s something sig added after initial complaints.

    dog also offers a ton of grip options, i got mine with a rubber wraparound which gives you the finger grooves you mentioned.



  43. Ed Choi on August 20, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    There is an extended 7 round sig mag I use then



  44. Wi1dTiger on August 20, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    @ 4:25

    I think SIG noticed all the complaints, because when I bought mine it came with the 7rd extendo and 2 6 rounders



  45. Hull Hoegan on August 20, 2022 at 9:00 pm

    I shoot a couple of hundred through mine every month religiously since I bought it 3 years ago and still haven’t had any feeding issues EXCEPT for when it gets real dirty from certain ammos. Once it is cleaned it never happened again. It’s had no issue with premium carry rounds as long as it’s properly maintained



  46. ryan kiss on August 20, 2022 at 9:01 pm

    Try a second hand magazine….could be a bag mag from sig



  47. garageguy879 on August 20, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    This is way over priced,,the original Shield is a much better firearm.The take down is not bad but the reassembly is horrible from my experience.



  48. JayHutchG on August 20, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    I know this is a late comment, sorry. I have carried a SIG P938 for about 5 years. Settled on it after trying many small 9mm’s (just like many of you) I certainly hope SIG fixed that firearm for you. FTF every other magazine is totally unacceptable. I would reject a carry gun with FTF every 6-8 magazines. That said I have NEVER had a FTF or FTE with my P938. Using a wide range of ammo the only ammo I ever tried that gave me an occasional FTF was using reloaded semi blunt soft lead rounds. Other wise factory ammo (practice stuff & carry ammo) has been flawless. BTW, mine came with 2 magazines. One reg 6 round and the extended mag which I always use. I absolutely love mine.



  49. Go Faster on August 20, 2022 at 9:04 pm

    Mine came with extended mag, I then put hogue grips on it and it’s fantastic



  50. Ed Choi on August 20, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    Get different mags when the new mags are string springs on many of my guns then Input rounds in and let the springs set a little to be reliable
