An unusual departure for my gun reviews, but it isn’t often that you get to see an original and a remake at the same time. I’ve reviewed each individually, and now I will just let you see them side-by-side.
A view from above. Notice the ejector port has been cut all the way over the top in the Sig version. The rounded versus square is also very evident from above.
All the pieces.
You can really see the rounding of the grip on the Mustang. The grip plates on the Mustang do not go all the way to the edges where the p238 does, adding to the difference in the feel.
It’s HAMMER time!
Right down the muzzle.
Single versus dual spring and redesigned pin. (The one with the “ears” is the Sig)
Barrels are different. (sorry for the blurry pic)
Even the magazines are twins
The Mustang wins on looks, feel, comfort and accuracy (for me). However, to buy one now would cost twice as much as the P238 of similar design and current production. Since I am not a collector, I would go with the P238 as a purchase and would be very happy with it. The P238 would require some kind of mod to that trigger for comfort.
