NRA Gun of the Week: SIG Sauer P238 Scorpion Pistol

by
posted on April 1, 2017

SIG Sauer’s extensive P238 line of small hideout pistols provides a flavor for all tastes, thus our selection for Gun of the Week is the P238 Scorpion. Built on an aluminum frame with G-10 stocks, the P238 Scorpion chambers seven rounds of .380 ACP and features a Flat Dark Earth Cerakote finish. The single-action, M1911 clone has bilateral safety levers but eliminates the traditional M1911 grip safety. Combat-style and drift-adjustable, three-dot tritium Siglite sights top the handgun.
