Two new handguns and a carbine conversion package made SIG Sauer an active handgun news maker in the pistol category at SHOT Show 2012.

SIG brought the first working versions of its P938 pistol, a 9mm version of its own P238 concealed carry gun in .380 ACP. Word of the single-action P938 leaked out in late 2011, and the gun should be available by mid-year. The P238 is often compared to Colt's .380 Mustang Pocketlite, a classic semi-auto that was re-introduced this year.

The SIG 938 is expected to be offered in familiar SIG packages such as the Blackwood, Equinox, Rosewood, and Extreme. Night sights are standard. A TRUGLO tritium-fiber night sight will be offered as an upgrade. Capacity is 6+1 rounds. The 938s range in price from $795 to $823.

SIG also introduced the P224 sub-compact pistol in 9mm, .40 S&W, and .357 SIG with either a DAK or DA/SA trigger system. The P224 will be offered in four versions, including the Anti-Snag, Equinox, Nickel, and Extreme. The P224s range in price from $1,125 to $1,218.

SIG also introduced the Adaptive Carbine Platform (ACP), a carbine conversion kit that fits with most SIG pistols, as well as many non-SIG pistols. The housing provides a stabilized longer-range platform with a Picatinny rail, allowing operators to use a variety of lights, optics, and lasers. The ACP will be available in a basic platform, as well as a version (ACP-L) that includes a mini red dot and single-point bungee sling.

A law enforcement version includes a slide-folding stock. Any pistol used with this version would need to be registered as a Short Barreled Rifle with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. The ACP retails for $479.

Oh sh#$, that looks like a bryco 32 or a cheap throw away!! Come on Sig make a gun that looks like it might save my [email protected]$ if need be..

Lawman94, "a cheap throw away !!" are you nuts?

With all the Sig's I have relied on (226 / 229 / 220), none have EVER failed to fire or cycle. The new 938 looks great to me!

At least it doesn't look plastic...

I like the P224. It looks like Sig has finally come out with a true sub-compact version of their classic line instead of developing a whole new line. The interoperabillity of the 229 mags is nice. I just wish I didn't feel like I was getting raped by Sig on the price. Sigs are quality guns and sometimes you have to pay for quality, I realize that. But the MSRP on the 224 is even higher than the full size 229. I know it's a new design but something tells me we're not going to see the price come down any in the next few years. I mean, it's being marketed as a back up or concealed carry (i.e. off duty or secondary) pistol. Come on Sig, cut us a break!

I am hand over heals about the new Sig P938, ans the P238 I just can not wait to get my permit to purchse both guns. I think Sig has out done themselves by coming up with these 2 new guns. I carry the Sig P229 .40, but now I need the pocket version of the Sigs. Sig I love you and I never leave home without it. Thank you, Nas Mazahreh, Retired Police officer, and I am in the Protective Security Service field

I love Sigs. I've been thru many different mfgs and models but just love Sigs. They don't quit! When you need it it'll be there for you. I'm hoping Sig will put the SRT on the new P224. As soon as that happens I'm all over it. But, the price - DAMM!!! That may be the only thing holding me back.
