SIG Sauer P238 Legion.
The SIG Sauer P238 is one of the most popular concealed carry pistols and has been produced in over 20 variations of slide, grip, and frame finish. All are essentially updated versions of Colt’s .380 ACP Mustang. In many ways the gun is a scaled down M1911. It even is single action only with cocked and locked carry. This makes it very safe, with the positive safety, while having a single action trigger pull that promotes accuracy. All of the P238s feature excellent SIGLITE tritium night sights. Sig Sauer has been so successful with their miniature 1911, that Colt has put the Mustang back into production and Kimber and Springfield armory now offer their own miniature 1911s, the Micro and 911 respectively.
All P238s have low recoil due to their steel construction and are more fun to shoot than typical micro-compact pistols. This low recoil also enables excellent accuracy and very rapid follow up shots. Finally, the wide variety of variants enables a degree of personalization without having to resort to a gun smith.
SIG Sauer has also offered a Legion version of the P238. The Legion P238, builds upon the excellent P238 and is even easier to shoot well. Sig Legions are special editions of SIG Sauer firearms with upgrades typical in a customized firearm. Purchasing one of these guns makes one a member of the SIG Legion. This gives one access to a special section of their website where one can order accessories, knives, and clothing only available to Legion members.
