    Anyone have a SIG P250 yet? I think it may be one of the neatest guns to come out in awhile i mean different frames, calibers and triggers. I hope to purchase one of these very soon anyone know if they have problems or stories on them would be great.

    I don't have one, but I want one someday so I pay attention. I've heard zero complaints about them. Those with them seem to like 'em.

    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.

    Wow. I went to their website and watched the promo video.

    Although it's hard to believe that "one size fits all" and does everything but cook breakfast...I gotta say it looks pretty impressive.

    I'm a revolver shooter - but if I ever got "turned out" as a bottom feeder - this could be the one that does it.

    How long has this model been on the market? What do they go for new? Can you find a used one?

    Had to send mine back and have the extractor replaced. No issues since then, though the replacement part itself is kind grungy looking.

    Probably the best DAO trigger I've felt on an automatic. (And a bunch of revolvers.)

    AFAIK, there are (finally) some .40 models out in the wild now. Still no word on caliber conversions or replacement grip modules. I don't think anyone's even bothering to speculate on when the .45s will drop. Probably later than sooner.

    New 250s go for about $599 around here. Used ones aren't much cheaper.

    Magazines are $34 each from CDNN and the gun only comes with one.

    Seems like a great idea. I love the concept. No idea if SIG will pull it off, though. It's been out for over a year now and even though it's billed as a modular system, you still pretty much have two options: 9mm compact or .40 compact. And the .40 compact is still hard to find.

    This wasn't specific to the P250. P220s had some bad extractors too. Seems like Sig got a bad batch of them and they made their way into alot of pistols.

    The P220 extractor saga is an entirely different issue as compared to a potential P250. The P220 went from an internal to an external extractor, two totally different designs. Hopefully this is a fix!

    Their explanation for this was they had a price point and to stay under it they had to choose between 2 extra mags or a nitesite upgrade.
