    Sig P250 @ sigsauer.com

    It has gotten my curiosity up.

    Anybody have one? Thoughts?

    Size comparison?
    Accuracy?
    Trigger?
    Dependability?

    Other?

    Thanks, AC

    You've just opened up a can of worms.

    The haters will show up and say that the trigger sucks. Actually, it's the best DAO trigger on a semi-auto I've ever shot. It is a long trigger. Very long. But, it's smooth and very predictable. The trigger length is basically the gun's "safety."

    The gun is modular, so you can get it in just about any size you want. It's available in sub-compact to full-size.

    Mine is a full-size, and is crazy accurate and very dependable. Zero failures. I'm willing to bet my life on it as it is my bedside gun. Mine is the full-size 9mm. I'm thinking about upping that to .357 Sig.

    I have one on layaway in 45acp. Hopefully I can give you a full range report soon

    I have a 45acp P250 compact. I've had it about a year and have probably put 1,200 or so rounds through it. I like it. I like the DAO trigger pull. It is very accurate. It is easy to clean. It has been completely reliable. It is a fine firearm.

    Hopefully not. Hopefully everyone can just give their opinion and leave other folks opinions alone. ;)

    My Son-in-law had one in 40 s&w. The trigger pull is a mile long. Hard to get used to. My son-in-law sold his and bought an XDM which he likes allot.

    I guess if you put a bunch of rounds through one you could get used to the trigger.

    I'm about 4k rounds deep into my P250c 9mm now. I've had it since April 2008. In the first 75 rounds or less I had two failures, can't remember if they were feed or extraction issues, but it has not hiccuped ONCE since then. It has been absolutely the picture of reliability.

    I put the short reach trigger on mine to fit my hand better.

    Fantastic ergonomics and accuracy, and I can't stress those two enough. Good weight and size, G19-ish. The trigger is like a well-worked older S&W double action. It's long, but the weight is great, just over 5lbs, and it is smooooooth as glass.

    Now, the trigger seems to be the point of contention for the nay-sayers. One guy at another forum said he "outshot the gun". He didn't. He failed to shoot the gun correctly. It was an ignorant statement.

    It is like a revolver in that it needs to travel almost the whole way forward before it resets.

    If you can shoot a wheelgun well, you can shoot this gun well.
    If you can't shoot a wheelgun well, you won't shoot this gun well.

    It has a lighter and smoother trigger than my S&W 442, and has only about 1/8 inch longer travel.

    My take, if you can't shoot the trigger on this gun, it isn't the gun's fault.

    Count me in as one who did not like the trigger. Between the trigger and the snap of .40, it just wasnt fun (for me) to shoot. I would like to try shooting one in 9mm.

    I just got my Sig P250 9mm Subcompact out of layaway last weekend and will hopefully shoot it tomorrow. However I like the long but buttery smooth DAO trigger, and shoot DAO triggers for my carry weapons. An old time shooter that was heavy into revolvers once told me that if you start out shooting or only shoot SA trigger guns like 1911's and similar and then when in a pinch have to shoot another type of gun, you will probably SUCK at it :eek:. However if you are used to or practice with a DAO trigger, then you should be able to pick up any type of gun no matter what the trigger type and be proficient with it. I hope this helps. God Bless !!! :D

    I fired a range rental once and I was very impressed - it felt fantastic in my hand.

    Accuracy? About the same as the P226. But the ergonomics were spectacular.

    I had a subcompact in 9mm for a few months that I put a few hundred rounds through. Never had any issues, great trigger, and was plenty accurate. I ended up trading it in to partially fund a Colt Defender, but that's just a personal preference.

    My wife recently bought a subcompact 9mm she plans to have as her carry gun (after she takes her class). She loves it, and I have to admit its a pretty good gun.

    The Best double action trigger, very well made. I love and shoot mine all the time.

    If you love revolvers and I come from revolver roots you will love this gun.

    I almost picked up a P250 .45 compact about six months ago. As a guy who cut his teeth on revolvers (and still puts ~2K .38's down range/year) the P250 had the best DA trigger pull I have ever felt. The pistol also felt great in my hand. As luck would have it, something else caught my eye and my cash got spent elsewhere.

    Recently, I ran across SIG P250 subcompacts at Palmetto State Armory for $340 and my interest in these pistols has been rekindled. Osage Guns has caliber exchange kit's for $239. So for less than $600 I can have a subcompact .40 and a full sized .45;)

    I have a P250C .40 (Gen 2).
    It has been 100% reliable so far. Very long trigger pull, but you get used to it.
    Mine came with a .357 barrel and 3 magazines.

    If you do get one, make sure it is the Generation 2. I heard the 1st generation had some issues.

    Never shot one, but I found the trigger on the sub compact I dry fired long, smooth and predictable when I two-staged the pull.

    Lots of good info. Thanks.

    How can you tell Gen 1 vs Gen 2?

    I believe that Sig began making the Gen 2 P250 around 12/2009.

    Here is a picture that shows the differences.

    Like I said, over 4000 rounds thru my 1st gen, no issues whatsoever. Got it about 2 months after the SHOT show introduction, April 2008.

    I prefer the rounded rail that mine has. I'm not big on rails, and I find the larger one a little obnoxious in comparison.

    The only difference is the grip frame, which has nothing to do with function, and the magazines, which were changed to fit the grip frame. All the functional internals are the same. Can't see how this would fix any issues, if there were any.

    used to own a 250SC in 9mm. It was my carry for a very short time. Too clunky and wide to effectively conceal for me.
    I did not mind the trigger at all, yes it was long to pull but it was not overbearing for the weight of the pull. To me it made for effective steady pull and also made making it fire very deliberate and intentional.

    Selecting a pistol is such a subjective process. I have at least 1 caliber in each of the all p250 frame sizes: fs, c and sc. Personally, I find all sizes to be comfortable shooters. The p250 is a fine pistol, smooth trigger pull and a very accurate shooter. The long trigger on the p250 might bother some shooters but it's smooth and consistent, and does not feel particularly heavy. Also I don't recall the reset being too long.

    I would definitely recommend to someone looking for a new polymer platform pistol to consider the p250, as well as the Walther PPQ and the Caracal C (only if looking for a 9mm). None of these platforms are great for concealment but I know from experience they are all GREAT shooters. I find Glocks very uncomfortable to shoot. I don't like the grip angle on Glocks, especially during long shooting sessions.
