Mine got a little better, but I may end up getting a new, lighter, and crisper trigger. It definitely was pretty stiff when new...

I bought a used 938 several years ago. Dry firing worked great. When firing live rnds, the trigger broke at the pin. When inspecting it I could put the trigger back in place on the pin and dry fire with no malfunction. So I determined the trigger was broken when I purchased it.

Thought about replacing the trigger myself but found some info that there were several modifications needed on that model, (new springs, ets. Thought Sig would fix the trigger and springs under warranty. Called and they said they would with minor cost.

Later I got a call from Sig saying the frame was cracked and i would need to buy a new frame. How about the warranty? Customer svcs said that the gun was only warranted for 7000 rounds and they could tell it had that many rnds thru it.
I couldn;t believe it. I said send the gun back. They said they couldn't due to the liability they would incur for not repairing a broken gun. The only way they would send the gun back would be if i purchased a new frame - for $250.

So I opted to buy the new frame. It had a new serial number with all the updated springs and mods and a new trigger.

But now that is one expensive 938. I could never sell it. Fortunately It is a very nice gun and i really like it.
