Pleasantly surprised

Checking out my new Christmas present, the P938 22 conversion kit and discovered that it has night sites on the slide. I don't think I'll need them on the conversion kit so I'm going to have them swapped with the white dot sights on my P238. Thanks Sig!

Kid, are you sure your P238 has white dots? I have the same pistol, and mine glow in the dark.

Take your P238 into the closet and check...

Yep, my wife's 238 rainbow has night sites but the one I have was all black I forget what it's called but it just has white dots. I was surprised when we got home the same day and I was checking them out. That's why hers was about $100 more than mine I guess.

Mine was the Nitron

Oh, that explains it. I had forgotten that all of the early Solo models that didn't cycle and fire were sent back to Yonkers and broken down for parts.

The few remaining cannibalized pieces were rebranded under the caveat of "ObamaCarrion."

It was supposed to "save money" in the long haul, but it cost so much to implement they cut back on the night sights. I remember Michelle lamenting the project in The Rose Garden.

Who can forget her mournful chant, "And it appears that I'm the Queen--let it glow, let it glow..."
