Thread: Sig P238 Aluminum Grips

  1. Sig P238 Aluminum Grips

    Sig Sauer has made its P238 the most successful concealed carry pistol. It can't keep up with the demand in the market. I've bought two of them and love them. However, I've found the grips on this model are not as good as they should be. They come out with basically two types of grips: the plastic fluted grips and wood grips. The plastic ones make the gun look cheap and feel uncomfortable in hand while the wood ones look like more for collection, not for real time, esp, not for precision shooting; plus they change color over time.

    So I searched and found some excellent aluminum grips from Rhynotek.com. They are very high quality and beautiful. In addition, the pricing is very good, compared with some other suppliers. Plus, they have more than six styles. I just want to share this info with you guys in case you own a P238. Here is the grips that I bought:

    Rhyno Two Tone Aluminum Grips for Sig Sauer P238

    These guys know what they are doing.

    I am expecting one pair in the mail today. I googled and read a customer review
    posted as recent as two weeks ago on this product from a totally satisfied customer.

    I am replacing my plastic grips with aluminum ones. And I think the price is very good, and
    they have good varieties to choose from.

    Pachmayer makes a nice grip. Got a set for the Mdl. 60 that I like, and I used to have a set on a Mdl. 38 that was a great combination. Don't especially care for them on a 1911 but opinions vary.

  10. Rhynotek has more new styles of wood grips made for this Christmas for P238

  11. Thumbs down Poor Quality Control and Customer Service at Rhynotek.

    Rhynotek must be an alright company as I can find no other dissatisfied customers on the ‘net. I however, have had a bad experience that I would like to share.

    I live by a simple motto… “Eff me not, lest ye be effed.” Rhynotek effed me, so here I am going to return the favor.

    I ordered a pair of Rhynotek Premium Checkered Black Ebony Grips for Sig Sauer P238.

    First I was charged $5.95 for the USPS Priority shipping that I requested. It was shipped USPS First Class instead. This only took two additional days to arrive. No big deal, but still… it was not what I paid for.
    Once they arrived, much to my disappointment, they would fit on my gun… the mounting screw holes on the left grip panel were drilled off center and this caused the grip panel to hit the slide release lever on the gun. I thought about returning them but decided that it would not be that big a deal to just file down the small area that interfered with the slide release. So I filed it back 1/16” and then the screw holes lined up and I could screw them on. Then, once I tightened the screws, I found that since the grip was forward of where it should be, it was rubbing the magazine release button so hard that it would not rebound after being depressed. At this point I decided enough was enough and emailed [email protected] requesting a replacement left grip panel, and included a description of the problem as well as a photograph. This was Sunday evening, the 23rd of January. It was the last day of the Shot Show in Vegas, and a lot of other places had posted notices that they would return to normal business hours on Tuesday. There was nothing like this on Rhynoteks site, but I waited until Tuesday afternoon anyway,and still had not received a response, so I emailed again, this time to [email protected]. I still had no response by Wednesday afternoon so I looked around their site and found the “Request an RMA” link. They promise a reply within 2 days… So here it is, end of business on Friday afternoon, and I have yet to receive a single response from Rhynotek. Emailed Sunday, again Tuesday, RMA request Wednesday… Nothing, nada, zip, squat. Eff me.

    So, I have given up on Rhynotek. Eff them. I just ordered a new set of grips from VZgrips.com. And I am going to post this rant all over the net.

    Endeavor to persevere. Matt
