- Extremely well-made
- Direct blowack
- Heel magazine release
In the late 1970s, Sig set out to make a concealable law enforcement pistol before the era of easily concealable 9mm guns. After a long run, Sig updated the pistol in 1996, creating the P232 model. These are direct-blowback, fixed barrel, single-stack .380 ACP pistols that bear a similarity to the Walther PPK. It features a DA/SA trigger, a frame-mounted decocker, a heel magazine release, and a standard capacity of 7+1. It was available with a blued finish and aluminum frame, as well as an all stainless frame and finish version.

The Ruger LCP is a .380 chambered semi-auto pistol that offers a convenient concealed carry gun to those looking for a slim pistol. Perfect for pocket carry, this tiny pistol also works well as a backup gun. It can hold 6+1 rounds in a standard mag and 7+1 in the extended mag.
The Sig P238 is a 1911 inspired .380 ACP micro-compact handgun that’s lightweight and gorgeous. It’s key feature is it’s micro-compact size which makes this gun a great CCW choice. The P238 resembles a 1911, especially the Springfield 1911 in that it’s classic in design. “It’s a soft shooting .380 ACP with a nice aesthetic and reliable nature — the perfect companion when it comes to situations that require ultra-concealment.” – Jacki Billings, Editor
Sig Sauer P232 Upgrades & Accessories
There is something to be said about an elegant single-stack .380 from the days of yore. Guns like the PPK have been presented in media as slick, classy guns fit for spies and royalty alike. But dare I say the Sig P232 is a better PPK? The trigger is better, the fit and finish is better, and yet the smooth-as-velvet lines still remain. Admittedly, the heel magazine release can be a bit of a turn-off, but this gun isn’t for tactical applications, it is for that trip to the opera with your better half or that summer barbeque everyone has been waiting for. But really, at the end of the day, these are still very capable guns with solid accuracy and relatively good triggers that just happen to look amazing.
