Seriously, one mag? Login/Join

Spend $599 on a new Sig 938 at the local LGS...and it only comes with one 6rnd mag...and, only one spare 6rnd mag left on the shelf.....$49.99. Smells like a racket to me.

Thank you Top Gun Supply for great pricing and your $20 online coupon. It's tough being cheap.

Just wait until you realize that the trigger is made out of plastic and that the main spring housing is a disposable part on the gun that is necessary for it to work..

Now I'm sure sig fixed the main spring housing issue by now but that's why I sold mine.

The one I bought last summer came with 2 mags. One with the flat base and one with the place for your pinky finger to rest.

I used to work for a tricky LGS guy. One of his tricks was to take any extra mags that shipped with the gun and sell them separately. And don't ask me about his DIY "Nazi Proofs".

Sig did supply a couple mags back in the day and depending on which model 938/238 it would have been the extended 7 rounder along with the 6 rounder. Up until this year Sig also supplied sights and slings with their rifles, not anymore.

They keep raising the cost of their products but giving the consumer less and less. Sucks.

Well, now see, we gotta ask about the DIY "Nazi Proofs."

Thought most sig pistols were 1 mag only for several years. Bought a base 226r .40 (yeah, I know, I know...) that shipped with only one. Things changed again I guess?


A Perpetual Disappointment...

Well.... Since you asked:
The dude had a set of punches that had all the Nazi waffenampts and markings. An older Walther, Mauser or Luger would come in the door and right onto his workbench. Some hammering then took place, a little cold blue and bingo! Nazi proofed wartime gun. It was then placed in the showcase with the price of the genuine article on it.
Sleazy! It made me cringe. And when I worked, I would refuse to sell the bogus gun, telling the potential buyer to consult with the owner for the "expertise" he had on wartime stuff.
Why did I stay with the operation? I needed the job! And sleaziness aside, the man was a bona fide expert on pre 1960 guns, especially the Luger. I learned to appreciate the Colt SAA, the WWI and WWII 1911 and WWII rifles thanks to his sharing of his knowledge of them. The Colt Woodsman was another of his specialties. He actually offered me a couple of Woodsmans (I checked to see if they were Nazi proofed) for next to nothing, but I was not interested. Big mistake! And the biggest curse he inflicted on me was a desire to possess vintage Winchester lever guns. Which I have never been able to afford!
So... when you are fondling that Navy Colt, SAA or Nazi proofed pistol, remember this tale of sleaze.

Just like the domestic auto makers. Guess they learned well.

I've noticed a lot of the Sig Extreme models are only coming with 1 mag... we've had some 238 extremes come in they only have 1 mag and some 290 extremes only have 1 mag.... maybe it's just certain models that only come with 1 mag

Was this in Lexington by chance?

yea, I was pretty dissapointed after spending a big chunk of change for a new 938 Combat and receiving only 1 mag. It sucks.
