Sig Sauer Inc.'s P238 in .380 ACP has been specifically designed as a concealed carry or backup handgun for legally armed citizens or law enforcement. Reacting to requests from the marketplace for a subcompact pistol, engineers designed the P238 as a smart looking, small handgun built with the same accuracy and reliability as large frame Sig Sauer pistols. With an overall length of 5.5 inches a height of 3.96 inches, it weighs under a pound. It is built on an anodized alloy beavertail style frame with fluted aluminum grips for comfort and a secure hold during rapid-fire usage. Additionally, the contrast or SIGLITE Night Sights are removable and adjustable for windage. The sear and trigger return spring are redesigned to prevent spring over-ride of the ejector during assembly.
