    Recently purchased a SIG P250 SC. So far so good through 100 rounds but I have a question about the trigger. It's very smooth but way too long IMO (longer than the Kahr I just traded). Are there any trigger mods available to shorten the pull? I'd be willing to even increase the pull weight if it shortened the length.
    Thanks.

    I'll be keeping an eye on this one. I handled the 250 (9mm) and like it as is. The trigger pull reminds me of a nicely tuned S&W revolver. I wasn't crazy about the reset though. That's what I'd like to shorten up. Which 250 did you buy? I've been wanting a G30 but after handling the 250 I was thinking 250/45 Compact would be a good choice. Did you handle the 45 250?

    You're right about the reset. A stronger reset would be an improvement. I already have 2 G19s so I was looking for a smaller carry piece so I bought the 250SC. I am a fan of the G19, but I'm not crazy about the 26. I was pretty set on staying with a 9mm so I did not handle the 250 C in .45, but if they make the conversion kit in .45 for the subcompact, I'd have to get it. For $369, it seems to be a good deal.

    I have a 250 on the way chambered in .40 s&W. I have a SigPro that is converted to DAO, and I am a fan of DAO pistols. That being said, I am a Sig nerd and will definitely chime in on my thoughts (or intended mods) to the trigger/reset when I get some range time with this pistol.

    Got it today and did a quick range trip with it. Shooting 180 gr WWB, it was spot on- slightly low/right of bullseye at 10 yards. The low right is me, not the pistol, I think. :supergrin:

    I am going to leave it exactly the way it is. The trigger is just as advertised- smooth, light and clean-feeling DA pull. I like it, and if you aren't scared of DA tiggers or if you're a revolver shooter, you'll love it! If nothing else, it teaches good trigger control. I shoot it well and am looking forward to the future with this pistol.

    I just bought a Sig 250 today. Didn't know anything about them but I liked it and especially the trigger. Now I go home and read what junk guns they are. Then I read what wonderful guns they are. I'll have to see for myself with my individual piece. It was used. Looks like it probably made one trip to the range. New condition. 9mmc model. One of the complaints is the trigger. I love the trigger. Smooth! I had a Kahr that I shot very well with a trigger that reminds me of this gun. If there is nothing wrong with it I am sure I will love it. Let us hope. These people that say how bad it is have me a little worried. :dunno:

    Don't fret 2dog yours will be fine I'm sure. Every manufacturer that breaks away from their traditional models goes through this and typically it comes from those that don't like change. The 250 is different than other Sigs a lot different. So enjoy the low price and shoot the poop outta that thing!

    This is a fun pistol to shoot. Here's a pic from yesterday, shooting a mix of 15 crappy reloads standing freehand at 10 yards continuous fire:

    Nice looking pistols. I didn't know Sig made a poly clean looking gun like that. How smooth are they compaired to their metal counterparts? I'm looking at Sigs lately

    I like the finish and surface of the poly, personally. It's a good looking pistol, for sure. It is only the second poly frame Sig I have, but I put the fit and finish on par with the metal ones, as far as appearance. I was worried the frame would have more "shine", but it is a very mild, consistent surface finish IMO.

    Have the subcompact on order now. I currently have a G19 (gen 4) and wondering about recoil comparison. Guessing I can expect a little bit more snap out of the Sig P250 sub (9mm). Any other comments about the gun after you've perhaps fired it a few times more? Note my gen 4 G19 spits a fair amount of hot casings towards my face - presume none of that with the Sig?

    I have 2 G19s and can say that the "snap" is about the same. The barrel of the G19 is a .5 inch longer, but the 250SC weighs a few ounces more.
    I've put 200+ rounds through mine without any problems. That being said, while it is shorter and not as high as the G19s, it weighs a little more. Not crazy about the trigger. Needs to be belt carried. Doesn't really differentiate itself from the G19 so I'll probably trade it for something smaller (PPS or another J Frame).

    Depends on where I am.
    The P250 has been out for about four years.

    Too me.. No comparison. A sig 226 or 229 blows the 250 and the sig pros away.
