    Anyone seen or read up on the new Sig P250?

    It's nic-named the 2SUM, because it comes with 2 guns in one. You get 2 grip shells 2 slides and one serial numbered interchangeable firing mechanism. Looks pretty sharp to me. Retail on the 2SUM is set at $945. Buying each individual P250, the compact and the full-size each with their own firing mechanism would cost you $640 per gun. Buying the 2SUM gives you a $335 savings.

    I am not going to change from my new loved P C II but this looks sharp, I'm surprised of all the sig fan-boy's nobody has brought it up.

    Not sure of the P250...

    Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of SIG...but the pre-2005 P-series of pistols is where it is at....better quality of gun, fewer plastic/MIM parts, but above all, better quality control. I think the jury is still out on the P250...waiting to see how they hold up over time. SIGARMs (the U.S. subsidiary of SIGSAUER) perspective seems to have been....get an 80% solution and get it to market, and we'll fix the 20% later on. Again, IMO, SIG customer service has taken a nosedive since the new leadership (brought over from Kimber) took hold in 2005.

    Just because there are SIG fan boys, doesn't mean they don't discriminate against quality.

    As is true for S&W M&P (mag drop & sear bounce problems), Glock gen 4s (G22s were awful when they came out) Ruger (LCP recall), Beretta PX4 (trigger sting with .40 cals - still don't have that resolved), Walther (PPK and PPK/S recall), Ruger SR( (recall), Colt (recall) Sig 238 (mandatory recall).

    I think you've confused QC with CS. Every P250 that's had to be sent to Sig for updates, Sig has paid for shipping both ways. When my P250c 9mm had the known extractor problem, I sent it to Sig on Dec 14 and got it back on Dec 24 and they had replaced the extractor, replaced the safety lever, replaced the trigger bar, and replaced the hammer. That may not be good QC, but it is for sure good customer service. 10 days from send-fix/update-recieve - and didn't cost me a cent.

    I've run 400 rounds through my P250 since without a single issue of any kind.

    Also according to Mas Ayoob, very large west coast agency torture tested the P250 and in Massad's words, "...passed in flying colors..."

    It appears what Sig is doing is now fixing problems on guns that got out before all the mods were in. Probably as we speak, all guns coming from the factory are updated. But if one pops up that isn't, Sig will pay for shipping both ways and fix the problem in a short period of time.

    They sold up here for a bit, but no one could get the other components which made the main selling feature of this gun pointless. I prefer the 2022 because I like DA/SA triggers.

    ^^^^^YEP^^^^^^^^^^

    I think overall its a much better weapon.

    For the money, I think I would throw mine at the FN Herstal Fnp

    I can't say enough good things about my P250s in 9mm, out of approx 4000 rounds I've had one malfunction. I do have the 2sum as well and I really like the system as well. My only issue is with the sub compact grip is smaller in diameter then the full size. If you are looking for a good gun that you can swap out parts with the P250 isn't a bad choice at all.

    From what I hear it's not really like a Sig at all, except the name. It's more like a Glock, Springfield, M&P.

    With that said I'm sure it's fine and worth the money. It's just not something I would expect to hold Sig value like the older models.

    But what do I know, I like Kel-tec's. I just don't expect them to work 30 years later.

    Not sure what you mean. The Glock, Springfield, M&Ps are all striker fired. The P250 is hammer fired. The only thing the P250 has in common with the Glock, Springfield, M&Ps is the polymer frame.
