    Sig 250

    Is this a new gun? Anyone have one? Just curious.
    I haven’t heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    Ergonomics are great I'm not sure though if its like the other Polymer SIGs yet. Awesome idea of the gun but the problem is I haven't seen one in any other caliber but 9mm. A gun that supposidly can be converted easily to .4/357/45acp one would think you would see alot of people raving about it. I have seen a couple come through the shop and all the triggers are different some had really horrid triggers some of them had the smoothest triggers on a DAO gun I've ever seen; however, this begs the question of the overall quality and control. I think right now its in its infancy and you'll see future platforms copy the technology or come out with their own spin on it. But I think right now its questionable and has not been perfected.

    Don't remember if we've had a thread here (do a search), if you can't find something here go over to the SIGForum and they have a wealth of information there, including range reports.

    Buddy has one.

    I was underwhelmed.

    Not fond of DAO only setup (at least, I've never seen one with the standard Sig DA/SA decocker). And, honestly...it feels...cheap.

    I can see where the mix'n'match aspect of the 250 will appeal to a lot of folks; I'm not one of them.

    Give me a classic 226 or 220 any day.

    I just sent one back to Sig I had for a T&E... I did a mini range report here somewhere, I'll see if I can find it.

    I have yet to shoot one, but I have now handled and dry-fired several. As somebody who was prepared to be very underwhelmed by a DAO trigger, I was actually pleasantly surprised. It is long, but I didn't find it spongy at all (as Sixto put it). I am looking forward to getting to put some lead downrange through one of those...

    I guess it comes down to what you are used to. All my guns that I shoot on a regular basis are much smoother and break a lot crisper than the 250. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't what I've come to expect from Sig. The overall feel of the gun was very Taurus like. In other words, it was if they put a great deal of effort in refinements, but stopped short because of some sort of compromise. It might be because of the bottom line cost or the modular design.

    I had one when they first hit the store back in feburary i think. I got rid of it fast it had a horrible trigger (very loooong & scrubbish feeling) it also was a bit difficult to field strip even though the procedure was quite simple that take down lever would **** me off seemed quite reliable though in the maybe 500 rounds i managed to put through it before i couldnt take the trigger any more. Oh one more thing you cant buy anything for it except a crappy "SIG" polymer holster..... Hope this helps
