The Sig is WAY better than the Cobra. The Sig P230 was replaced with the 'updated' P232 in 1997, so if you're looking for the P230 you need to look at the 'used' market. The P232 has an MSRP of between $630 and $850 depending on model. The actual retail price is more in the $500ish range.
The Cobra can be purchased for less than $150.
This is an excellent example of you get what you pay for.
Something you might consider is sort of a median between the two. The Ruger LCP is also a .380 that is right around $300 retail. In my opinion it is better than the Cobra, but not as good as the Sig. (Just something to consider.)
