~Please understand that this is a right-out-of-the-box review~
This is a very solid, tight, mid-sized pistol. Very nice looking. Feels great in the hand with the larger mag. Not too unstable with the smaller mag either. It is quite a bit larger, and much heavier, than my TCP 738 .380 ACP. Will definitely be a Winter carry but should work with "baggier" pants and a tight belt. It fits well in front slacks pocket but has a slight profile. (IWB is not that comfortable for me).
It comes in an insulated cardboard box which is extremely lame. The integrated lazer is a bit embarrassing. It turns itself off after a few rounds are fired. The lazer sight also seems to lose calibration due to recoil. I'll need to keep my eye on that to be sure. The gun was fairly dry out of the lame box so I lubed it when installing the ILM. The takedown is somewhat tricky the first time. Good videos on Youtube helped.
On the range: Fired 30 rounds as a range test using both mags (3x 8rd mag, 1x 6rd mag). I had Luger PMC Bronze 115Grs. FMJ on hand. The first round failed to eject. I had 4 failures to feed (this was not a classic feed ramp / breech issue. The rounds never left the mag on full 8rd mag only), and the slide failed to lock back on empty twice. I didn't find these glitches too disconcerting for a new gun. A few hundred more various rounds and a feed ramp polishing should improve the dynamics well enough. I found the trigger to be consistent and smooth. Very comfortable to fire. Moderate recoil. It is accurate and the night sights are very nice. The "semi external" hammer helps to time release.
So far I'm very impressed with this pistol. I'm sure that we will become good friends after spending more time on the range. I have no regrets. SIG did a good job. A nice case and a better lazer would make it perfect.
