The Trigger is like a good DAO Revolver with a professional trigger job. It's smooth and light ~ 6lbs or so.
If you're used to a short trigger reset like the Glock has you will not like the P250 trigger, You need to use a "constant contact" trigger press rather than a "trigger reset" trigger press. The size of the P250 is almost identical to my H&K P30. Which is Somewhere between a Glock 17 and Glock 19 overall.
I do like the P250. I think it's going to prove to be a real stellar handgun. I appreciate how easy it is to take apart and clean. Being able to remove the entire trigger assembly without tools makes cleaning very easy.
Here are some photos. Feel free to ask followup questions. I'll do my best to answer them.
I handled one on saturday. Was truly impressed with the ergonomics and DAO trigger.
Seemed to be alot of SIG for $649.
SIG should sell a lot of these guns!
The new SIG-SAUER catalog shows a sub-compact. Very 239 looking.
That might be a very interesting gun.
In Theory, your "gun" with the P250 is the trigger assembly. (Silver part in the photo above)
you are going to be able to order a SC barrel/frame/slide/magazine as well as a full sized Barrel/frame/slide/magazine. Then move the trigger assembly from one group to the next to adjust what size pistol you have.
Sig also is supposed to have 3 grip sizes for each of three "classes" of the P250. So you can have a small gripped Compact, or a large gripped compact for people with smaller or larger hands. (these frames are ~ $50 and at least for the compact are now available)
I think for the average Private Citizen, the Modular design isn't all the important. However I could see how a Police Department might benefit from having a pile of parts to customize the type of pistol issued to different officers.
Controls wise, the P250 is very "Glock Like" in that, you have a magazine release, a trigger, a Slide catch, and a take down lever. There are no Safety switches, Oversized slide releases, or decockers on the gun which make it very simple to use. Take down is typical Sig.... Lock the slide back, rotate the lever, release the slide, and pull off the front.
For anyone who isn't familiar with "trigger reset" or shooting that way. the P250 is going to be a fantastic little pistol. I agree with the comment above, Sig should sell at lot of these.
The non stainless steel ones (like above) locally (Indianapolis) sell for $599 Stainless is $50 more.
I got mine a couple months ago. Does everything its asked to do. Very easy to field strip and clean. It did jam a couple times when it was very new, but after a couple hundred rounds it been fine.
I'd buy it again.

Some people think the P250 as being to wide for carry.
I'm still impressed by the one that I was able to handle, just waiting to see what
the new sub-compact will be like.
The P250 is one of the few guns my wife can pull back the slide on. She really likes it. I found it to be very accurate and almost a sin to clean because its so easy to take down. The best thing about it is, its a SIG and its been totally reliable.
