SIG Sauer is expanding their flagship series with the new P238 Legion and P938 Legion micro-compacts. These premium pistols are designed for all day, everyday carry, with a hard-use finish and added features.

The P238 Legion is chambered for .380 ACP and the P938 is stepped up for 9mm Luger. Both are single-action pistols with ambidextrous thumb safeties.

The premium micro-compacts have Cerakote Elite finishes in Legion Grey and come with XRay3 day and night sights. The front sight has a high-visibility green dot with a tritium lamp while the rear sight is serrated black with two lamps for nighttime use.

The slides have front and rear cocking serrations and are dehorned for a smooth draw and ease of holstering. The frame also gets the SIG Anti-Snag treatment.

The frames also sport a Cerakote finish and are checkered on the frontstrap, backstrap and trigger guard. They also have checkered G10 grips with bronze Legion medallions. Both have extended, flared magwells and come with three extended magazines. In .380 and 9mm they have a 7+1 capacity.

Another improvement is to the triggers. The guns have redesigned, machined flat triggers that set them apart from standard models, which have polymer triggers.

True to their name, these are very small, lightweight handguns. The .380 weighs in at just 15 ounces and the 9mm barely more at 17 ounces. The .380 has a 2.7-inch barrel and measures 5.5 inches long while the 9mm has a 3-inch barrel and is 5.9 inches long. They’re both just 1.1 inches wide at the controls.

Despite the low mass many shooters find them easy to control making the P238 and P938 popular with single-action shooters. It was only a matter of time before SIG launched Legion versions of both models.

These are some of the most affordable Legion pistols, too. The .380 has a suggested price of $850 and the 9mm still under a grand at $904. And of course real-world prices tend to be less than MSRP.

It’s not just extra features that make the Legion series stand apart. Legion owners are entitled to exclusive premium gear and equipment, including accessories like holsters, ear pro and lights and Legion apparel. Anyone who registers their Legion products with SIG will receive a custom Thermold carry case and matching challenge coin.

    I know anything in the Legion series seem to be overpriced. But I bought a P226 SAO Legion not long after they first came out and it is by far one of the finest guns I have ever shot. I carry a Colt Mustang XSP as a backup. But I find myself often frustrated with it at the range. I can shoot accurately enough with it, but after about 50 rounds when it starts getting a little dirty I start having various FTF/FTE issues. And it does not seem to matter what the ammo is. The gun must be kept absolutely clean. Not that this is a problem as I always clean my guns. But the gun should be able to shoot more than 50 rounds. I have been considering a P238 or P938 for a while. I think Sig just gave me more of a reason to start saving my money.

    I have had a love hate relationship with my Sig P938 for the last five years. Normally, I shoot full size CZ’s and Glocks and am an accuracy fanatic. I really struggled for a while with the P938 getting it on target but I have learned that it hates 115 gr ammo and loves 124. After a good cleaning, 124 gr. 9mm ammo and a tighter grip, I finally am punching out 2″ bullseyes at 7-10 yds, which is what a small backup handgun is supposed to do. The price of the P938 Legion 9mm will probably end up around $800 + or – and it is worth EVERY CENT. Reasons: The 938 is rugged, has a real ambidextrous safety and can easily handle +P ammo. It is also small for easy carry and deadly accurate. According to the reviews, the new night sights are fantastic and should be easy for my old eyes to handle and now they have a lighter more responsive trigger which spells even better accuracy. This will be my next carry gun.

    QQ If it too expensive for you dont buy it…I paid 730 for mine it’ll be a good summer carry while I have my legion 229 for winter carry

    $904.00 for this dinky little gun? I know the myth that little guns cost so much more to make …I call BS. I love Sigs, I own several but I just paid less (way less) for an X5 (the 320 Flagship), I just have no use for these over priced little guns….Legion or not…just can’t justify it.
