P290 grip panels ?

Have you changed the stock grip panels on you're P290. The stock ones feel pretty good but I was woundering what wood or other grip panels might look like ?

Sig has put the production of accessories for the P290 on the back burner for now. The gun isn't selling and is still a nightmare for their repair dept. It's likely that you'll never see the large lineup of grip panels originally slated for the gun.

I wondered why you are not seeing to many posts on them. So far I really like mine, still new and fired very little yet, rained most of the weekend. Mine was made in April of this year I hope all the bugs are worked out of mine. It really will make the perfect carry gun for me. My first Sig and it would be my Luck that I pick a model that would have trouble. I usually reseearch a gun before I buy it but this was just a case where I have never seen one and really liked it.

Although new to sigtalk, I have to chime in here w/my 2 - FWIW, I hope that the 'brainiac suits' at SIG USA are happy with their 'executive decision' to rush the P290 to market BEFORE their 'development staff' had ironed out ALL of its bugs - especially with the trigger!

Sadly, this is yet another example of 'top-tier' people who receive egregious salaries while making equally-egregious decisions that, in our increasingly savvy world, cause potential consumers to simply shop elsewhere!

Of course, ultimately, SIG's rank-and-file repair staff will be over-whelmed w/returns while production workers are furloughed. IMHO, SIG's CEO, Mr. Cohen, 'et al', need to get their ducks in line before it's too late! (Then again, as long as they can 'capitalize' - literally & figuratively - on Sig's past great reputation while installing greater no.'s of MIM small parts, Mr. Cohen, et al, will heighten profits and, then, use their 'Golden Parachutes' to bail out when things start to go south! - Welcome to our modern, immediate-profit-based, economy!)

Again, just MHO ... your mileage may vary! 10Q bd much!

Yeah, this was a very disappointing revelation to me as well. If Sig isn't going to make them, then I would think someone with the talent would jump on the customization bandwagon and make some extra cash. While not a top seller, there are still a lot of P290's (and owners) out here...

I have a new P290rs and absolutely LOVE it. It is my4th Sig Sauer and it is flawless. I heard the first generation had issues but think that they have all been fixed. The second generation are all P290rs's as far as I know but don't know when the cut off was. I love mine and wouldn't trade it for anything, it's just what I was looking for...a small "pocket" 9 mm.

Looking to purchase a Sig P290RS, but I am still on the fence. It appears to have a lot of MIXED reviews.

Any new updates on the P290RS or anyone else have some imput?

Just do it. I love my all black P290RS. I read about the first model, but never owned one. Sig has never let me down in the past, so when they said the gun was cleared of all problems, I believed them, and I have not had one issue with mine. I stopped counting rounds after I emptied two UMC 250 count Mega Boxes, but everything I have put in, it has fired, flawlessly. I have put a number of personal defense rounds through it as well trying to find what we (the gun and I) are best with, but we like many of them (Hornady Critical Duty, Custom, Zombie, HST, Carbon, Liberty). The P290RS is very accurate and consistent. The trigger is very nice; it is smooth, making the 9 lb pull easy to control. There is a little divot you can feel just before the hammer is going to drop. I can hold the trigger and hammer there in a seemingly "single action", "cocked and ready" position. I purchased a fantastic IWB deep concealment holster from EIGHT2TEN Custom Kydex Holsters and Vinyl Graphics. The owner, Justin Lewis, has a large selection of Kydex colors and patterns to select from. The quality and finish are outstanding and he has a two day turn around posted right on his site and I can attest to his commitment to it.
I like my P290RS so much I may get another so I can also have the two tone finish. Can you tell that I really like this firearm?

Update: I own two P290RS' and they appear to be ammo-sensitive. They're 100% w/American Eagle 147gr & Hornady 135gr Critical Duty but I get occasional misfires w/both Geco & PMC practice ammo. Changing to a lighter firing pin spring doesn't seem to help.
I'm going to call SIG about this to get their take but for now I'll just buy better practice ammo.

ETA: While I'm pretty happy w/the factory grip panels, I'm thinking a right-side panel w/a built-in palm swell might be nice.

I think the "mixed" reviews were based on the P290, NOT the P290RS. Most people who bought the RS version have been happy with it.

I'm pretty happy with mine. I'm hoping SIG will have more accessories available as time goes by and the gun becomes more accepted.

I love my P290. It's not the RS but I have not had any issues. Only 2 misfires using Black Bear ammo. Inspection showed good strike on primer. It's a great little gun, too bad it is not up to usual Sig quality.

Sig 290 grips

I have never changed mine. I have the Liberty Edition w the enhanced grips. They fill the hand pretty well, but I would like a set of factory flat panels for pocket carry. They bulge less. Plus I would be able to use a Hougue Handall jr sleeve. I like the stippling, but it's a bit rough on the mid section when carrying iwb

Has anyone found a place to buy replacements? I could make a kydex set, but I don't think I would like those. I don't have the tools to make wood sets. Hmmm...

Last time I looked on the Sig Sauer site, they had some G-10 options.
