    I'm pretty sure this Sig has been reviewed in one or two of the gun magazines recently. Can't remember which ones, tho.

    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Thanks Captain Crunch. I will have to search the gun rags. I held one of these this week and really liked it.

    The quality of the article REALLY depends on who wrote it. Some of the authors are incredible gun pimps.

    I think a gathering of experiences here would carry more weight.

    From what I have read they had some reliability issues a first but seem to have been worked out. I went back and forth between that and my CDP when I bought it.

    Catalina,

    Our Gander Mountain has one for $999.99



    Jimbo2,

    I am also looking strongly at the CDP models. I would prefer the 4" CDP to the 4.25" barrel on the C3. Plus, I like the look of the a bushingless barrel lockup but I am still not sure which style is better.

    Thanks,
    Darin

    I don't have any experience with the C3, however I do own the STX (its the full-size). I have about 800 rounds through it currently and it have performed really well. I had some hiccups around the 200 round count with some bad ammo but other than that it hasn't had any malfunctions. The trigger is awesome, its very accurate and feels great in the hand. I would assume that the C3 would function in much the same fashion.

    I held one at Bud's Gun Shop Saturday and it was priced $949. Seemed like a really nice gun.
