It appears that Sig is introducing a dedicated P938 in 22 Long Rifle, and a P232 in 22 Long Rifle. SWEET !!

From Sig...

SIG SAUER® Adds Rimfire Variants to P938® Series of Pistols
Published Date: 1/14/2014
NEWINGTON, N.H. (January 14, 2014) — SIG SAUER® now offers its popular P938® single-action 9mm pistol in .22LR, allowing for less expensive practice and increased fun as a “plinking” gun. Owners of P938 pistols will also see two conversion uppers, including a “long-slide” target version.

The P938-22 Rosewood offers all the features of its larger-caliber brothers, but chambered in the common .22LR cartridge. With a 10-round magazine, the Rosewood features SIGLITE® night sights, rosewood grips and a durable Nitron® finish.

Current P938 owners can purchase the conversion kit, which contains a Nitron finished slide, 3.3″ rimfire barrel and 10-round magazine. A 4.1″ “long-slide” conversion features adjustable contrast sights and an increased sight radius.

With the popularity of the P938 as a concealed carry pistol, the P938-22 allows the operator to practice with the less expensive .22LR rimfire round, and the reduced report and recoil makes it a great option for new shooters.


And the P232 announcement...

SIG SAUER® Introduces Classic P232® Chambered in .22LR
Published Date: 1/14/2014
NEWINGTON, N.H. (January 14, 2014) — SIG SAUER® introduces a .22LR variant to the Classic P232 pistol, offering shooters a less expensive option with significant design enhancements. The new SIG SAUER P232-22 features an American (side) magazine release, external slide stop, ambidextrous manual safety and threaded barrel.

Featuring the same sleek lines as the original, the P232-22 gives operators the ability to practice with the same size, similar weight, DA/SA trigger, and frame mounted de-cocking lever of the standard P232. The light-recoil of the P232-22 is also a great choice for new shooters.

The P232-22 comes standard with a threaded barrel and would be perfectly paired with the SIG-SD .22LR Silencer. Contrast sights and an all-black frame and slide finish round out the package.

Im pleasantly surprised that they are rolling out a .22 variant on what is relatively a "dated" model (the p232). When's the last time a new all steel, straight blowback, hammer fired pistol was introduced?
Nice to see someone putting out a gun in something other than striker fired and polymer.

I love my P232. It was my first carry gun, and is still one that can shoot way more accurately than it has any right to.

I'm interested in both.

Now, how about an all stainless 239? Come on Sig, let's do this.

A conversion kit? Makes me want to sell my P238 and replace it with a 938+conversion kit...

Too bad they didn't make a kit for the 238.

Cool!

This will probably convince the Mrs to upgrade her 238 to a 938 and get a rimfire conversion/copy.

I am definitely interested in both, especially the P232-22.

I'll be interested once I can again swing by Walmart and grab some .22lr ammo on my way to the range.

With the current ammo situation another .22lr gun is a non-starter for me -- I can barely feed what I have now.
