    New SIG P250 Info Released: Merged

    Seems like the p250 is close to shipping and has a scheduled date of around thankgiving, anybody else excited about this new release? It is now on their website with a good video of the different grip sizes.Seems to compare in size and weight to the G19 and also has 16+1 capacity of 9mm, looks like a great new release from SIG.

    Very interesting, glad to see it is finally on the website.
    Anyone know if they have any kind of showroom at the factory, where
    you can get a look at this with all the different options? Would be cool, seeing as I am less than a hour from there.

    Thank for the link.

    It seems as if they are considering the trigger housing/mechanism as the serialized receiver and you can change the upper receiver and grip at will to make various sizes.

    I'm surprised the ATF is letting them sell this in the US.

    it reminds me to much of the Sig Pro. I think they are getting to complicated too.

    I have to admit, it has me thinking it might be time for my first "plastic" pistol. I would sure wait and see what the initial reviews are like.

    If it pans out it sure could be one of the most flexible systems ever.

    Thumbs up

    It's really an amazing firearm.
    The entire gun can be completely disassembled and put back together again using no tools.
    Smooth 6# DAO Trigger.
    Move Over GLOCK - make room for SIG.

    Change grip housing sizes - calibers - barrels - slide configurations - triggers all on one gun.
    The gun is COMPLETELY modular.
    It's an engineering wonder.

    Watch the demo movie.

    The movie is done really well.
    This is REALLY going to be a great SIG handgun.

    From what I have read they have a very good chance of stealing a lot of Glock's market share with this. I understand the list price is supposed to be in the $500 neighborhood and each of the grips is supposed to be around $40. I don't remember what they were saying as far as barrels and slides. I could see a lot of agencies going to this platform. With all of the assorted "tupperware" they can mix and match and pretty much custom fit the pistol to each officer.

    Glock 19 is about 9 ounces lighter, and when carrying a gun for 18 hours a day, that weight matters.

    The 250 is only 4 ounces lighter than a 226.

    I'll pass.

    It is a great idea...but no. Too heavy.

    I think it would be a departments armorers nightmare. I wouldnt buy it for my PD. I'm sure it will be a good gun, but I think it would create more problems than it solves.

    The glock19 with loaded mag is 29.9oz and the p250 is 30.8 with mag from both manufactures websites. I agree weight def. does matter, hopefully it is a minimal difference in weight.

    The ergonomic feel is likely going to be in keeping with SIG standards.
    That means that it's going to feel perfect 'in hand' for many shooters.
    Add to that the three different grip frame sizes to PERFECTLY accommodate all size hands and I think this gun is going to be a winner.

    I really like the ease of removing the internals. Think how easy it would be to clean. If the trigger feels good and one of the three grips fit me, I think I know what my next gun will be.

    Agreed AutoFan.

    I'd pretty much had final decided to go with a S&W M&P .40 untill hearing that the P250 was going to be real last August.
    It presents a strong benefit in it's multi-caliber capability alone with conversion components being less costly than that of a whole new and secondary gun.
    The ability to swap out the whole frame as well from full size to compact per carry concern also presents a strong benefit.

    I'm seriously considering "collecting" Sigs, and trying to pick up an example of all of their major lines. This has jumped to the top of the list...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
