I see on the "other" forum that many are complaining that the p290 is "defective" because you must release the trigger all the way in order to reset it. So, what's the point? All DA revolvers are like that. No big deal. I just don't see the validity as I have never had this problem. I have noticed it with two other shooters who I have let shoot my p290 as they are inexperienced and shake, rattle & roll while pulling the trigger. Both got a light strike on the 2nd rd. Since initially sending mine back to SIG for the infamous light strike issues mine has been perfect. Over 1,000 rds. without a bauble. This is being totally blown out of proportion IMO by people who want a DAO gun to have a 1911 trigger. Ain't gonna happen.

I may be mistaken or read a completley different post but someone said something like once you short stroke that trigger in that particular gun, the gun will not fire at all no matter how miny times you pull the trigger or reset the trigger it will not fire & that you will have to rack the slide to make the gun work.. If this is the case that can be a very dangerous situation if you are in battle & need your gun to protect your life & Sig should not put a gun on the market if it has bugs like this that could be a very deadly situation for the person owning the gun.. A gun has to work 100% of the time not 50% or 80% We rely & pay good money for guns to protect our lives & the lives of our loved ones...



If his story is true then Sig need to recall these defective guns & get them repaired before someone gets hurt or killed, I'm not sure how many of the P-290 Guns are said to be defected but one defective gun is not good..

I read the same thread & that guy is full of it. Many simply jumped on the bandwagon having never shot a p290. I repeat: almost all DA revolvers can be short stroked and that has never been considered a defect. It is merely someone who doesn't know how to shoot one properly. You have to let the trigger reset. If one can't do that then maybe they should rethink the entire idea of carrying a sidearm. Typical "alarmist" Internet **** IMO as since the Obama "scare" many neophytes have taken up handgunning and are totally oblivious as to how firearms function. FWIW, I had a Kahr K9 years ago that would do this as well.
