So the trigger is interchangeable between the Colt and the Sig?? I was wondering about that. Where did you get the trigger?

I've never seen the black grips on a 238.
Were they stock?
Mine has the Rosewood grips, but yours looks good too.

I've also seen someone is making exotic wood grips for the Sig.
Pricey, but they are calling out to me.

I'm glad you asked. :)

I bought a Colt .380 government model and a Mustang Plus II, I'm a dyed in the wool materials snob because I make aftermarket replacement parts for industry, so I hate plastic and aluminum in my guns.

The plastic trigger looked really cheap and the choice was either make a stainless replacement or sell the guns. I made one on manual machines (Lathe, mill) out of 303 and put it in my Mustang Plus II.

Then I got a call from a guy who does reliability work for police, some of them carry the small Colts as back ups.
He sent me a computer drawing of how he wanted some made and I made them up in our CNC equipment, the material is 416 stainless. I started a run of 100 and had to toss all but about 80 (Terrible scrap rate!), anyway, there are quite a few left and they are for sale for $40 each.
The gun in the photo belongs to a customer who bought one for his Colt and asked if one would fit the Sig.

It does.

The customer mentioned that the grips are aluminum, I don't know where he got them, I'll look into that.

How did the installation go? I haven't detail stripped my Sig yet and the instructions are not abundant... I need to shoot my 238 more to see if the trigger action smooths up some too. That trigger looks awesome. Looks like I need to start saving up my coin!

The owner said it dropped in, no fitting required. That's odd because the triggers were specifically made with fitting for best reset required, and I believe every Colt has required fitting. Fitting is really easy though. Here's the same gun with the customers Mustang Plus II;

Hello, I signed up just to contact you HisSoldier....I've been a long-time lurker til now. Would love one of your SS replacement triggers for my P238 if you think it can drop in with no fitting or such. I am already intimidated by the concept of taking the whole gun apart to swap out the trigger. Having to manually fit it may be more than I can handle. PM sent and my email is in my profile. Thx.

Biker, you don't have to take the whole gun apart, I wish you were here, we could fit it in a few minutes. You want to take the grips off after taking the slide off, then drive out the trigger pivot pin and remove the old trigger while watching very carefully how you get it out. You may have to remove the disconnector, just bow the trigger bar away and slide the disco out.
The hardest part is getting the new trigger in, but only if you didn't pay attention to exactly how you got the old one out. :) It's the exact reverse. Remember to put the disconnector back in.

OK, sold. I'll try anything once. Sending PP now and will post back later when my new P238 SAS arrives and I get it installed (likley within the month.) Thanks again.

Well, how do folks reach you?

I can PM you here, but know folks that are interested that are not members.

Got one of these triggers and it really finished my P238 off nicely. BTW, there was no fitting required. Bought it from one of the 1911 forums. :)

Go to this thread on the 1911 forum http://forums.1911forum.com/showthread.php?t=270332&highlight=partsproduction and scroll down to post #10 = partsproduction and PM him about the trigger. Not sure if HisSoldier and partsproduction is the same guy but the triggers are very similar.
