    The US version is supposed to have a 6lb trigger. There are some dimensional differences from the Euro version to accommodate the .40SW and .357Sig. The slide was changed for the 9mm US version so that it would use the same holsters as the .40/.357 models.

    The slide reminds me of an Hk USP

    In case you are interested....there is a thread called Sig P250: The Official Word on SigForum. It was posted by the Marketing guru of Sig. I read the OP but didn't bother reading the replies since they are currently 16 pages long and don't say crap other than "cool, can't wait to get one".

    Here is the P250 page product page from Sig's Official website. I have read some about this pistol and was very interested already. However, I followed the link to Sig's website and noticed they will be coming out with this pistol in .45 also. I was not aware of that bit of trivia. The 9mm version was tempting enough, but now they tease me with a .45.

    At first I was very interested in this gun, then I noticed 2 things.
    A) they pretty much ripped off FNP's lower
    B) This gun has been delayed forever

    Considering that Sig hasn't done anything innovative in over a decade and this will be a first generation gun, I think I'll wait until they (and the early adopters) work out all the bugs.

    Did it say as to when the .45 would be forthcoming?

    No. They didn't even say when the 9mm would be available and it is supposed to be the first released.

    So I am reading a little more about this P250. Finally looked at the tech specs. It is the same length as a 229 (7.1 in) and only 2 ounces lighter. What gives? I would have thought a polymer frame would have reduced the weight much more than that. It goes about 30.something ounces. I like the idea of modularity or whatever they are calling it but really was thinking this would be the light weight carry Sig many of us dream of. If the size isn't smaller & the weight isn't much difference & you buy what you want from the beginning ... then what is the big draw? Of course, having said that. I will likely have one once they hit the streets and I find out if they have any issues on the first production ones.

    I am not jumping on the 250 right away given my recent "issues" with Sig. However, I did talk with Ted Goodridge @ TNG Hardware out of DFW, TX. I got my last Sig from him. He said he had 6 which should arrive in the next week or so. Three were already spoken for (including one for himself). He will be selling them initially for $599 Nitron, $639 Two-Tone. Just thought I would share what I learned in case anyone else was interested.

    You know you want one... :D

    Yes, I do. I just want to hear back from Sig CS and see what they say about my displeasure first. Also, want to give them a while to get any bugs worked out.

    Have they suggested sending it back to them to check it over/correct the issue?

    I haven't shot my new 226 yet, probably on Friday. I hope it doesn't have any issues.

    Jeez, who did they design that for, SEAL teams? That thing looks huge. It would be nice if SIG would make pistols for civilian carry instead of for chasing military contracts. :wink:

    GunNut - your new Sig is sweet. If Sig were to ever give me the chance to upgrade I would probably choose a P229 Elite in 9mm to replace the 220 Carry.

    Sig hasn't suggested anything yet. I sent the e-mail on Monday of this week (11/19). It was received (I requested a return receipt on my outgoing message) but has not yet been responded to. I actually asked her to respond with a telephone call so we could have some two-way communication.

    Regarding the size of the P250. The specs indicate it is roughly the size of a P229.

    Thanks, I can't wait to shoot it.

    I'm very interested in their response.

    After comparing the P250's spec's to Glocks, I'm not sure I'm seeing any advantage. Size, it seems to fall between a 19 and a 17. Weight, it weighs more empty than a 19 fully loaded and only slightly less than a fully loaded 17. Where is all that weight? Is that a new lead based polymer?

    I guess the modular design is its plus, which really doesn't do much for me. I'd rather just buy another complete gun than a bunch or parts.

    GunNut - I pretty much agree with what you said in your last post. I really want to handle one though. I don't see the modularity thing being a big advantage to the individual either. LEO depts, yes. Me, no.

    I was looking at the 250 instead of the 239. When you compare the two, the 250 is longer, higher and wider and 3 ozs heavier than the 239. Besides, I don't think I'd like the DAO.

    You are comparing oranges to apples, there. One is a subcompact carry, the other is almost a duty size gun. Hence the 16 rounds vs 8.

    Also, 239 is tried and proven, 250 is neither.
