Sig p290
 
Just saw this on Sigs website today, wondered if anyone else had heard about it or what they thought. Not sure how to post pics so if you want to check it they have pics up on their website.

THE P290 SUB-COMPACT 9MM, is our newest and most innovative and versatile polymer pistol. Designed to be the ultimate in conceal carry. This unique 9mm pistol is the perfect small defense handgun that meets the demands of today’s law enforcement professionals as a backup duty gun, and responsible citizens as a conceal carry gun. The removable grip plates allow for customization with aluminum, wood, and polymer and can be engraved with your initials for a true customized pistol (coming soon).

Also available in two-tone.

FEATURES
- Lightweight sub-compact
- Available in 9mm
- Optional integrated laser
- DAO Trigger
- Removable grip plates

I've read a bit about it on the Sig forum and many feel it may end up being in the same league as the P250 - not a great seller...

This is the one they should have introduced in 380 not the single action.

Nothing wrong with the P238 - I love mine...

I don't really see much difference between it and the p250 sub compact except that its a little smaller, and seems to have a single stack magazine

this is a big difference than the p250

as to whether it will sell is to be seen - a tad bigger than the kahr pm9

would lke to see the ballistics of the 380 vs the 9mm out of these short barrel pocket pistols

I think it looks interesting.

I'm in the market for a compact, polymer 9mm for concealed carry.

I like the Kahr, but I'm not crazy about the trigger.

This new sig is now in the running.

I'm actually leaning towards the Taurus slim 9mm.

That's alotta bang for your buck right there.

Make sure you do a lot of research on that Taurus as I've seen a lot of them for sale on the used market locally...

Are people not digging the Taurus and returning it?

I'm a little suspicious getting a gun for so cheap but haven't heard anything bad about it.

If you're talking about the PT709, folks here in GA aren't that happy with it. On a local forum here, about 5 people bought them and posted rave reviews. About 2 weeks later the first of them hit the classifieds - and within a month all 5 were listed for sale. Supposedly it is very ammo picky, the mags aren't great, and overall they weren't happy. I wouldn't give a quarter for any Taurus polymer pistol as I've had a lemon and won't be burned again...
