Sig Sauer P290RS Review – Sig P290

The Sig Sauer P290RS has been eclipsed in popularity by the new 1911 style Sig P938. The P290 with external hammer was first introduced with a hard trigger that performed like a semi-automatic striker style pistol. Sig took user comments to heart and improved the trigger by making it glass smooth, lessened trigger the pull force, and gave the pistol a true double action only trigger with re-strike capability. Now the hammer drops every time the trigger is pulled.

Even with polymer frame the little Sig pistol is hefty for its size and weighs in at 20 ozs. The pros and cons to this weight are that it is heavy for its size but those extra ozs help subdue recoil and the contoured frame with enhanced beavertail work to make this a comfortable gun to shoot.

Sights are 3 dot with tritium centers for enhanced night visibility. Both the front and rear sights are dovetailed making windage adjustments possible. The front sight is available is several heights to allow for adjustments in elevation.
