    I have been looking into a smaller autoloader and was wondering what people thought about the Sig P232 Stainless?

    Love mine


    Accurate, easy for ccw, dependable, reliable, but needs good cleaning after 200 rounds, a must with the blow back action.

    I also have the Black Hogue, fingered, wrap-around grips on mine, and it just looks awesome, feels awesome, IS awesome.

    Only need one type of ammo for range and HD/SD, IMHO, good/new 95gr FMJ, and she'll do the job.

    7 shots per mag, and from my experience, personally, I do not pre-load the chamber, then insert a 7 round mag but, simply, go with 1 chambered, and 6 left in the mag, along with full back-up mag of 7.

    That way, it works 100% for me any, and every, time.

    Get one..

    Good quality gun. Can't really go wrong with a Sig. I'm also a bit partial to the all Stainless sigs. I like the look and feel of them .I can sell you one NIB at $665 for the stainless version. Drop me a PM if you're at all interested (I'm a Sig dealer).

    And love it! Sweet shooter, and as reliable as you can get.

    One of my favorites. I carry in a Galco Fletch...very comfortable, quick to target, natural pointer, quick follow-up shots, thin and most concealable. A winner. Compared to Walther PPK/s the Sig is a nicer weapon. Only the Beretta is comparable in quality.

    Best .380 that size on the market.

    It is big for a .380, but this helps make it very shootable. It is a very high-quality gun.

    Like all PPK types, it has a heavy crunchenticker for a trigger, and being a trigger snob, it turned me off bigtime.

    If they cleaned up the trigger and beefed it up with unobtanium and a locking mechanism to handle 9mm, I'd buy one yesterday.

    I bought one a couple of months ago

    I bought one a couple of months ago for off duty carry so i could retire the glock 27. I have had nothing but problems with it. The gun will chamber and fire fmj bullets no problem but it will not chamber any hollow points. I think the feed ramp needs to be polished. I am going to send it back to sig.
    I don't want to turn you off about buying one of these guns because sig is just about the best quality gun that you can buy. I love how the p232 fits in my hand and it is very accurate. I am already planning on buying a p229 equinox. I would recomend buying one. You wont regret it.

    It was my very first CCW. My dad gave me his P232 as my 21st birthday present when I got my license to carry. It carries beautifully, and absolutely disappears on me (and I am a thin guy) under just a t-shirt. not even a thick or loose one.
    It is accurate and reliable. As was mentioned before, just keep it cleaned. In my torture tests, it starts jamming up after about 300 rounds without cleaning.
    It points so naturally you can't even imagine. and it is soooooo beeeeyoooootiful!!!!!!

    Love mine!

    tydephan Love the wood grips on yours! Where did you get them?

    The gun will chamber and fire fmj bullets no problem but it will not chamber any hollow points.

    mbdolfin I've shot Winchester SXT's and Corbon in mine and no feed problems. Send it back to Sig!

    They are Nill grips.


    I can't claim credit for the setup though. This pistol used to belong to another member of THR, Frandy. He put the grips on and snapped that beautiful picture.

    When he decided to sell the gun, I jumped all over it.

    tydephan Thanks for the link! Methinks some Nill grips are in the future for my 232.

    I've thought of them as well. Just too pricey for me right now. Especially because the Hogues work sooo nicely!!!

    BTW- if your P232 does not feed hollowpoints, there is something amiss. Mine fires Hydra-Shock, and Gold Dot with absolutely no problem at all.

    nice grips, wish i could afford those.

    When I get some extra money and have nothing else to do with it, I'm going to purchased a blued 232 and put a set of those Nill grips on it. I've seen them on the blued pistols before and they look surprisingly nice!

    But they are not just for aesthetics. Using the stock grips on the 232, I was still coming dangerously close to being bitten by the slide because I have big hands. The Nill grips are fatter, which allow me to retain better control. My hand no longer rides up and I haven't even been grazed by the slide with the Nills installed.

    Just in case you really needed to justify it, coug.
