    I have owned and fired more handguns and rifles than I can recall. One of my most recent aquisitions is the Sig model P250. After reading a plethora of negative threads regarding this weapon on various gunboards I decided to see the pistol for myself. I was excited to see that the design is one of the most simple I have seen employed on an autoloader in some time. The weapon consists of very few parts, with the slide and frame beautifully overbuilt. It fits well in the hand, points naturally, and comes standard with Siglite nightsights. Yes it is a modular design, however, I do not currently see this as the weapons strong point, with the kits being very expensive at this time. After the initial problems and complaints, Sig seems to have worked out the bugs. All of the negative reports seem to swirl around the old frame style 250's. The current P250's using frames now employing a 1913 Pic rail and more aggressive stippling, seem to have remidied the initial problems. I have experienced no problems whatsoever with my example. Those that I know that own 250's concur as well. I will say that this Pistol is not for everyone. The trigger pull is double action only, so those accustomed to Glock and Springfield striker fired trigger mechanisms will be in for a surprise, and a bit of a learning curve. I can say that the Sig 250's DAO is one of the absolute smoothest I have ever felt. So, with that being said the P250 now, over its initial woes, should have no problem finding a following with those in search of a sturdy DAO autoloading handgun to serve their needs.

    One thing I like with the P250 is that I own the 9mm compact and the 357 SIG kit. I practice with the 9mm upper, and then cc with the 357 one, given the 50% cost difference between the two rounds.

    @tprice.... Yes that is one aspect of the weapons' versitility. Is your 250 an older frame or newer frame? Have you experienced anyproblems attributed to the weapon? Does it run well?

    I have a fullsize p250 in .45 and it has run like a champ for me so far. Admittedly it only has about 200 rounds or so through it, but I like it a lot. Mine is the new frame style.

    I checked one out when i was looking for a subcompact .40
    The gun felt a tad bulky but not overly so, But my issue was the rear of the gun looked like half the parts were missing.

    @Dasfriek. I know exactly what you mean. Allthough this is the beauty of it, most of the parts are missing. Its got way fewer parts than most poly poppers.

    Sig fixed the loooooooooong gritty feel of the trigger and pronounced "BOING" upon break?

    Mine still has the "boing!" but it is always covered up by a "BANG!". And I didn't notice this over the period of a few months, but my buddy told me the trigger really did wear in nicely.

    I am used to; and really like, DA revolver shooting. And the trigger on my p250 is much lighter then an N-Frame or L-Frame with the reset being similar. I feel the trigger is nearly as smooth, but not quite. The break is not as clean, but I think it's way better then any striker fired pistol I have shot.

    To be quite honest I think it is by far the simplest pistol design I have come across. I just wish they would have shipped it with more then one mag.

    My only complaint is that it doesn't pile brass up neatly, which is annoying for me as a reloader.
