My Sig 938 leaves much to be desired. Love the size. Ergonomics are great minus two dings:
-The trigger reach is short and the trigger guard is small making it a bit tough to get your index finger on the trigger.
-The safety is way too hard to actuate. If can clear it off ok, but I need to use my support hand to put it back on.
It is very picky on ammo. I find that it feeds Hornady JHP well, but that is about all that is 100% reliable feeding. Even the Sig branded stuff has questionable feeding.
The trigger is hell. 8lbs. On a single action. Tried the MCarbo kit, but then I got light primer strikes. Tried a professional gunsmith trigger job, which brought it down to about an awesome 5lb, but then I was occasionally going full auto with the most powerful ammo I tried, either because the sear wasn’t reengaging the hammer or a human factors thing. Sent it back to Sig and they put it back to 8lb. So, still have the stupid trigger, but no longer shooting out lights on the range.
Finally, accuracy is terrible no matter how much I concentrate on a slow deliberate squeeze. The 8lb trigger is no help, but I am also thinking that this gun has the loosest barrel lockup of any handgun I’ve ever handled.
Anyone else have similar gripes about this gun?
I’d love to see MCarbo put mine on a ransom rest and see just how good or bad it is despite the service rifle weight trigger pull. The 938 might benefit from a gunsmith fit barrel, but no one makes one of those for the 938. I’m not asking for much, just the ability to get within 6" of POA at 7 yards. (most of my scatter is low-left of POA so likely a result of trigger pull and grip, but that barrel can’t be doing me any favors.
