On the last day of June, I put up my first real range report and review of the Sig P938. During that range visit I had a few failures to extract and I also had a little problem with the trigger cutting into my finger. It wasn't a great experience, but I did get through just over a hundred rounds of ammo.
Two days later I was out on the range again with the P938 and continued to have issues with failure to extract. I subsequently called Sig and they issued me a return authorization for service. The lead photo shows the test target and Gunsmith Comments from the service center visit. After reviewing the changes and testing out the new very sweet 5 lb. trigger, I couldn't wait to get the pistol back out on the range and see how it performed.
The video below was shot earlier today. I must say I am very disappointed in the pistol that was returned to me. The failure to extract problem has gotten worse instead of better. I've run 400 rounds through the pistol. 300 before service and 100 after service. Sig ran 100 through while they had it. I'm now 500 rounds into break-in so the typical new gun problems should be over by now. The recoil spring has a recommended life of 1500 rounds so I'm 1/3 of the way through the life of the spring and still encounter repeated failures.
As you can tell from the video, I'm getting pretty frustrated. The failure to extract issue is worse now than it was before. When the gunsmith regulated the front site, the tritium vial was broken so the sight is now dead. I've also had two failures to fire with the pistol and both rounds fired when they were put through the pistol as second time. FTE is concerning. Occasional FTF is VERY concerning.
I'm going to give the folks at Sig a call on Monday and see if they will take the pistol back a second time for service. Something isn't right and they need to do more trouble shooting on the pistol or replace it with one that works. Third time could be the charm that resolves all issues or this could be three strikes and you're out. I really want to like this pistol. It's very easy to shoot and a dream to carry, but it's getting more and more difficult to like something that I don't have any confidence in.
At least they'll be able to replace the front sight while they have it for the second time.
