SIG Sauer P238 - Recalls


In July 2009, SIG Sauer issued a recall of all P238s sold within a certain serial number range, which they referred to as a "Mandatory Safety Upgrade." The reason stated for the recall is that a small number of P238s were built with defective manual safety levers, leading to "the remote possibility that the gun could fire unintentionally, thus creating a risk of injury or death," although SIG Sauer emphasized that no such injuries had actually occurred. According to SIG Sauer, the recall did not affect any pistols with a serial number that started with "27Axxxxx".

There have been three updates applied to the magazine used by the P238. The third generation magazine has been so far the most reliable. The recoil spring was also updated in late 2010. The new spring is a flat coil spring with better performance and longer life expectancy.

Famous quotes containing the word recalls:

    Fear of error which everything recalls to me at every moment of the flight of my ideas, this mania for control, makes men prefer reason’s imagination to the imagination of the senses. And yet it is always the imagination alone which is at work.
    Louis Aragon (1897–1982)

    Reckoned physiologically, everything ugly weakens and afflicts man. It recalls decay, danger, impotence; he actually suffers a loss of energy in its presence. The effect of the ugly can be measured with a dynamometer. Whenever man feels in any way depressed, he senses the proximity of something “ugly.” His feeling of power, his will to power, his courage, his pride—they decline with the ugly, they increase with the beautiful.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
