Quality and price rarely ever share a cause/effect relationship in today's consumer culture. If it did, some brands would skyrocket in price, and others would tank. Sig sells their pistols, like any other manufacturer, priced at a balance between profit goals and marketing effectiveness.

If you want a good example of what marketing can do to the price of a firearm, compare the original HS2000 price to the price of the XD. That's not to say that lackluster quality can be overcome by brand name alone. If it could, the S&W Sigma would likely cost near as much as a P226.
