My daughter just bought a p938 based on a friend's husband's advice. Anyone have experience with new production ones?

938 SAS acquired a few weeks ago. Still breaking it in with plated bullet handloads, but no malfunctions after 400 rds, I like it.

Wifey rented a 938 and a 238 at the local gun range to see which suited her best for carry. She's 5'2" and a smaller slim frame. She thought the 938 had a little too much recoil, so she decided to go with the 238.

The 938 had good accuracy at the 7 yd. bad guy combat range. Didn't shoot it further than that. Both functioned perfectly even with ghetto range ammo.

I really like mine also. Tear down is a bit tricky at first. At least for me it was.

I'd read reports of earlier ones being extremely ammo picky and I hope that's not the case with hers. She's been carrying my (used to be my???) 3914 so the caliber shouldn't be a problem but I'm strongly suggesting to her that she practice handling the gun before she starts walking around carrying it in condition one.
I'd picked up an MP Shield thinking it might be good trading material for that 3914 that I have a soft spot for but that isn't going to work out.

I only ran Speer Gold Dot in my 238 and it was flawless, had trouble with run of the mill ball ammo.

I bought a 938 last year. Great little pocket gun. On the first range session I had a few failures on feed. The slide would not close all the way. A bump on the slide would make it go into battery.

The problem was the hook on the extractor was slightly too deep and was catching on the bottom of the rim of the cases, which added enough friction to stop the slide from closing. A few swipes with a knife sharpening stone on the extractor and it is perfect now.

Mine has produced its best groups with 124 gr. Gold Dot Short Barrel ammo. I've shot a bunch of 125-135 gr. cast boolits through it, but I haven't found the sweet spot on the load yet.

I like this gun a LOT.

When the weather warms I'm going to shoot some 115's, 124's and a few 147's to see what shoots closest to point of aim vertically. I've put some Tula brass (Fiochhi...sp?) 115's through it and they, or me, are hitting a little low.

So how are the guns running now? I have a chance to buy one used for $500, are they worth the money

Mine is perfect since I stoned the extractor to not dig into the case when feeding.

$500 is a really good deal IMO. I'd buy it.
