I understand that there is a "new" small 9mm due to be out soon...anyone have info? Is it approximately the size of the P238...weight and how "thick" is it ?

About the same size as a Glock 26 carrying 4 less rounds. What's the point?

What's with the sights? A pocket-sized gun would normally have low profile, smooth sights. These look like they were designed to snag on the pockets:

It's thinner than G26. In fact, it probably has the same dimensions - and capacity - as the hypothetical single-stack Glock some of us whined so much about. :upeyes:

I believe those are night sights.

But why are they free-floated? ;)

Most if not all newer made Sigs have come out with SigLite Night Sights.

Um, not so much.

I know that I'm speaking blasphemy here but I'll stick to my Glock 26 for a small 9mm (and my SIG P250 for a nice sized 40 cal).
