Sub-compact pistols continue to be hot items at gun shop, especially those available in larger, more powerful calibers. SIG's P290RS, a sub-compact 9mm, was designed to meet all the demands of concealed-carry practitioners, and is an improvement on the company's P290 design.

The primary difference between the P290RS and SIG's original design is a redesigned trigger that offers a restrike capability. In the event of an ammo failure, the operator has the option to press the trigger a second time, or manually cycle the slide.

P290RS pistols ship with a standard 6-round magazine, as well as an extended 8-round magazine.
