    Who has one of these?

    They are intriging. I know I said I would not buy a new Sig but I have a very fair trade in the works and am looking for feedback on this gun.

    So lets here it Sig P250 fans. Lets hear the good and the bad.

    I bought one for my fiancee, and I like it.

    Pros: Night sights on all of them, incredibly smooth trigger, nice ergnomics, small for it's capacity (with the small grip module, it's very thin for a double stack).

    Neutral: Will take some time to master trigger.

    Cons: Comes with only 1 mag, trigger is very different from traditional DA/SA Sigs, limited choice on holsters right now.

    When I bought it for her, I got her the small grip module as well. I can say their design was very, very thoughtful. It takes less than a minute to change out the grip sizes.

    I let a friend of mine (he's a glock lover) shoot it and he enjoyed it as well. Both of us had no problem shooting roughly 3-4" groups at 15 yards off hand. This is my fiancee's first pistol and she's still jerking the trigger like crazy, which the P250 does not respond well to at all. Due to the length of pull, she shoots 6-12" low cause of her jerks.

    Overall, it's a very nice pistol, I would recommend getting one. :)

    Anything specific you want to know, that I didn't mention?

    Any issues with it feeding or extracting?

    How many rounds are you fitting in the mags 15 or 16?

    What is your overall impression of its fit and finish? Any play in the slide?

    It double fed twice in the first 50-100 rounds, and hasn't since (close to 500 through it). Sig has been telling people it needs break in (up to 500 rounds depending who you talk to).

    It'll hold 16 rounds, but I load them to 15. It takes a decent effort to get the 16th round in, and I just don't care enough to do it. But yes, it'll hold 16, technically. :rolleyes:

    Overall the fit an finish is very nice. The slide finish seems very sturdy and smooth. There's no rattle or looseness between the slide and frame, no matter which one you use. When it first came out of the box, it wouldn't return into battery without a little nudge it was so tight. I was told the Sig Pros were similar in the respect, and after a 100 or so rounds the lockup is very, very tight.

    I highly reccomend the Uplula universal mag loader. It works very well on my P250, 92FS, and XD mags. Saves the fingers.:D

    I purchased one a few days ago. I think I've either experienced a jerky finger due to the trigger or a site issue. Probably the first of the two. Other than than a nice pistol for the price.

    I don't have one (probably won't be getting one either) but I've shot one.

    The good:
    There is a person that goes to my range that bought one. He let me try it out. I really liked the DAO trigger (I'm also a big fan of the DAK triggers) and it fit my hands and balanced well for me. I did think about buying one, but I really don't have a need for one. I'm happy with the CCWs that I currently have.

    The bad:
    I saw the guy that let me shoot his P250 last week. He was taking a defensive pistol course. His P250 took a dump on him. It started failing to extract and feed. I asked him about the total round count he had through it. He said he thought it to be somewhere in the 1000 - 1200 range (it's a 9mm).

    He was sending it back to Sig to get it fixed. I haven't seen him since, but I'll see what the problem was (probably a broken extractor??)

    I don't think that this story condems all P250s, but I thought it was worth posting.

    Good luck!

    I traded for one. 2 tone with 6 mags. It is a nice DOA trigger. I like the feel and the way it handles. It is very accurate on par with other Sigs of the same size. I like it for a HD and CCW.

    I've got about 3500 rounds thru mine. I bought it just because the design was so neat, and even though I don't plan on getting any conversion kits for it, if the price was right I might pick up a 45acp top end.

    I haven't had any issues after the first 50 rounds. I did have two failures in the first 50, one stovepipe, the other was a ftrb. After that, no problems. And I've given it a workout, not cleaning or lubing for about 1000 rounds over a 3 week period, and still not having any issues.

    The magazines when first released by mec-gar had 15 round springs in them, Sig replaced mine with 16 round magazines. The one that came with it and 2 of the 5 I bought from CDNN were 15 rounders and 3 were 16 rounders. The 15 round ones would absolutely not fit 16. They weren't too tight or too hard to get into it, there just wasn't room due to spring bind.

    The trigger is an incredibly smooth 5.5lbs and feels like a nice revolver. If you can shoot a double action revolver well, you won't have any issues learning this trigger at all.

    Fit and finish is great but it's really only the top end that has a finish as the grip module is molded. There is zero play in the slide.

    Since the firing control mechanism removes from the frame, stripping and cleaning is fast and easy.

    I usually won't buy a new model gun, but I found myself well-enough impressed that I bought it more or less as an impulse buy. I haven't regretted it for a minute.
