Sporting unorthodox integral sights and radically de-horned, the Sig P938 SAS promises to eliminate all potential snags on a draw.
How the P938 SAS Goes Snag Free:
- Integral sight system eliminates main feature that causes snags.
- Every potential snag point aggressively milled off the frame and slide.
- Ultra-smooth Nitron finish on the slide ensures a smooth draw.
There is more to a concealed carry friendly pistol than its height, width and weight. Important as those factors are, there’s also a little question about deployment—how quickly and effectively it can get out of the holster and into the fight. If you’ve ever wondered that’s why most guns meant for on-person defense have nearly every sharp corner and catching edge smoothed away. Hanging up at the moment of truth has the potential to prove plum deadly.
Sig Sauer has gone a step beyond milling away catch points on its pistols, employing a low rise sight design it’s fittingly dubbed the “Sig Anti-Snag” system. And now it’s available on one of its most popular carry options with the release of the Sig P938 SAS. Not that the petite 1911-style 9mm needs all the much help as a quick and efficient self-defense piece, but few will complain about another leg up.

Originally, the Flush-Mounted FT Bullseye Fiber-Tritium Night Sights were found on the Sig P365 SAS, though the system dates back further. The unorthodox sights, situated in the slide itself, are reminiscent of the gutter sight found on Paris Theodore’s ASP pistol and subsequent Israeli systems. No matter the origin, the aiming solution is about as low as you can go and proves surprisingly intuitive to use. As a bonus, it pops like a skyrocket in low light.
In addition to the sights, the Sig P938 SAS has gone through an extensive dehorning process, making it exceptionally smooth, thus less prone to snags. Additionally, it ships with an extended 7-round magazine with pinky extension, which should make the demure pistol easier to manage. Outside of that, the P938 SAS retains all the popular features that made the original a concealed carry favorite, including rugged alloy aluminum frame, stainless steel slide, snappy single-action trigger and familiar 1911 controls.
Sig Sauer did not release a price on the P938 SAS. For those who appreciate optimized carry systems, the price tag might be beside the point. The pistol performance will prove a value no matter its cost.

NEWINGTON, N.H. – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce the P938 SAS (SIG Anti-Snag) pistol, bringing new innovation to this popular lightweight, micro-compact, concealed carry pistol.
“When we introduced the SAS technology with the P365 it was immensely popular, and the demand for this new technology in the concealed carry market was immediate. The SIG P938 is a very popular micro-compact pistol, so the addition of the SAS technology was a natural fit for this platform,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales. “Our proprietary SAS technology removes all the snag points from the pistol for a seamless draw. The integrated, flush-mounted FT Bullseye sight mounted directly into the slide is intuitive, and easy for the untrained eye to pick-up for fast target acquisition.”
The SIG SAUER P938 SAS is a 9mm, single action only (SAO), hammer fired, alloy frame pistol with a Nitron finish. The pistol features the SIG Anti-Snag (SAS) technology slide treatment with a flush-mounted FT bullseye fiber-tritium night sight, an ambidextrous thumb safety, and ships with (1) 7-round magazine.
