Laser maker companies like Crimson Trace took note of the success associated with the Sig P238, and worked diligently to get a laser for that model designed and to the market as quickly as possible. Since the P238 doesn’t have removable grips a grip mounted laser was not an option. After some R&D, Crimson Trace released the Crimson Trace Laserguard model LG-492. This model is an under barrel laser unit that attaches to the lower portion of the slide in front of the trigger guard. This model also includes a push button activator in the grip area.
The LG-492 was an immediate success and the challenge then became trying to find a holster to fit the P238 with a CT laser.
Here are some of the more common questions that we see about the Sig P238 wearing a Crimson Trace LG-492 laser.
#1 – I have a holster made for the Sig P238 with a Sig Laser. Will this holster fit my P238 with a red CT laser?
Each of those 2 laser models is actually different with different dimensions, so a holster made for a P238 with a Sig laser won’t fit a P238 with a red (or green) CT laser very well at all. Your best bet will be to find a holster made specifically for the P238 with a CT.
#2 – I’m interested in getting a holster for my P238 with a CT but I’m worried that the holster will accidentally activate the laser and run the battery down?
The Crimson Trace LG-492 uses a button activator that mounts onto the grip of the pistol, so the holster doesn’t come into contact with the laser activation at all. This means that accidental activation due to the holster isn’t really possible.
#3 - I have a Sig P238 with a Sig Laser. Do you offer anything to fit that set-up?
Yes, we do carry holsters made to fit the P238 with a Sig laser, and those can be seen here by clicking this link: http://www.gunnersalley.com/sig-sauer-p238-with-factory-sig-laser/.
