I bought this gun as a concealed carry, I love this gun. It's small enough to conceal but with the laser it's impressive when its pulled out. I also have a Kel Tec PF 9, it's hidden in the house but I only carry my sig. Smooth firing but trigger pull is long, which is what I like, but that's my choice. Solid gun and still gets ooh and awe when shown. Gun is top heavy with laser, I like it but I definitely shoot the 290 if your considering a purchase. I love it, but check it out and shoot one before you purchase. 5 stars for me

I found one, two tone with laser. it shoots great, dead on for me right out of the box. triger is firm, i hope it gets better with more rounds. the price is high for a small 9 but you get what you pay for, ever shoot a kel-tec 9, its jumps and never hits right were you aim. the ruger is a good mid range gun as for as action,triger and over all control. again you get what you pay for.

MSRP, is just that - the Manufacture's Suggested Retail Price. What few I have seen for sale, were for sale for less than $750. As more are available I bet the prices will go down.

Stiofan, I wish you were right. However, Sig just released the price for the two tone at $$$786.00!!! Based on their laser models the $786.00 will be the base MSRP. Its unfortunate they would price it so high. At that price you can get a Ruger LCP and LC9.

I tell you what if it is anything like the P250 trigger pull ain't no way I would carry one. The Ruger's trigger pull is just as terrible plus you get the added bonus of the little pop up on the Ruger that says "loaded". If you have to have a tiny 9mm with a terrible trigger pull at least save some money and buy Ruger. Me, I'd rather pack on a few extra ounces and just go with a Glock.

Waiting to see the price. I almost don't care anymore since I saw the Ruger LC9. Ruger had the price the day they put it on their website. Probably be lucky to get either one before summer.

Looks like the Ruger LC9 just made this an obsolete pistol.

If they price in the area of $700+, Khar alone will out sell being the PM9 ranges from $550-$650, and the Kel-Tec PF9 is under $400. Lets wait and see. $750= a guarenteed loss

Interesting. It looks like an small polymer version of the P239 DAK. If it's as good as the P239, SIG will have another winner.

Really $750???? They expect it to sell because it is a SIG at the price. for the kind of money I could buy Kel-tec, twice or a Kahr and have a fair chunk of change left over...Seriously?????

apparantly it will be a modest 750.00 or more...really?

Let's hope it works better than the P238. This could be a winner if Sig did the R&D already and not depend on the public to do it for them, like the P238.

A slightly larger, heavier version of a Kahr PM9

I love it! I've been waiting for Sig to do something like this for awhile now. When will they be available?

I think I will trade in my LCP and Nighthawg for on of these. Nothing beats a Sig.

A laser sight on a 2.9 inch barrel? On a conceal carry pistol?
