I wouldn't lose too much sleep over it. That price is not a screaming deal by any means.
Also I personally have never been that blown away by the excellence of the P230/232 either. I actually had a Bersa that outshot the P232 I rented, and the Bersa felt better also, with less recoil and a better grip. The P232 is an old blowback design, way more recoil for its size than a more modern gun would have.
I bet the P238 has less felt recoil. I know a Kahr P9 is much nicer to shoot, and that's a 9mm Luger.
