I have had 2 P290RS's. The first one I purchased used and had multiple FTF's, FTE's and light strikes using brand new Speer and American Eagle brass ammo. It went back to Sig 2 times for repairs. The last time it came back I still had a few FTE's so I sold it. I bought another one and it has been perfect. For me I like the long trigger and hammer. Because I have smaller hands its fits me well. I carry it AIWB.

Hello I have had my 290RS for 2years it has been a good tool in my edc rotation. I haven't had any issues with 900 plus rounds thru.I did go to galloway and get the ss guiderod an heavier springs.The trigger could be better all things considered mines a keeper.

Trigger won't reset

I carry my P290RS every day because it is comfortable, concealable on my body with the clothes I normally wear, and it shoots well with decent accuracy for a 2.9" barrel gun. I don't mind the trigger pull, but the trigger itself is not the most comfortable. Not such a big deal, this is not a range gun or competition gun, it is for self defense. While I hope to never have to use it for such purpose, if I do, the shape of the trigger will not be on my mind at that time.

I have no experience with the Shield other than holding one at the LGS just for ha-has.
I have over 500 rounds through my P290RS 9mm and it was improving with the FTE and/or FTF issues and an occasional trigger fail to reset. Today the trigger issue got really bad. I'll do a very thorough cleaning and lube and give it another try. No problem today with FTE or FTF.

Only had mine for a month, but I like it. Shoots well, conceals well, and the Oil Rubbed Bronze is pretty. was researching the 365, sold myself on a 290 RS.

Sending mine in for repairs

My concern is with the trigger bar on the Sig in that it has such a small contact area to the hammer that I am afraid that down the road it might wear and need to be replaced. Not a problem but it looks like Sig is discontinuing the 290 so I can not be sure that the replacement parts will be easily found years down the road. The other problem is I do not like striker fired guns and in spite of the fact that I have been through S&W's M&P armour class I like the feel and dbl action of the 290 better. Any opinions and experience would be greatly appreciated. I also still would like to be able to smooth out a trigger bar so again the 290 is a first choice for me if I have parts available down the road. The next question would if I don't like striker fired guns why did I buy one? Great question, I do not have an answer. My other carry guns are j-frames and a 92fs is my house gun.
Thanks in advance, Frank.
I cleaned mine and oiled it. The trigger will not reset unless I move the striker back a hair by touching it or moving the slide back a hair, which then moves the striker back. I'll contact Sig for instructions.

Because you needed one that day to determine that you did not need one. Many times, answers that are "no" are still helpful answers. Yours was answered. "No, I REALLY do not like striker fired weapons." That is a valuable purchase (to me). Next time it comes up in your mind (and it will), you now get to move from the previous, "pretty sure I do not prefer striker fired weapons" to "I have found I REALLY do not prefer striker fired weapons." Many times for me, that realization costs money. In your case not that much money. If you really cannot mentally get past the durability of the Sig P290RS, sell your Sheld and buy another 290RS. Keep it pristine. If your main 290 fails, you have a go-to until you decide on a new platform.
