I've been interested in the P250 since it came out during the last gunshow. It carries Sig's legendary reliability and comes in at a very reasonable price point. The DAO trigger is superb (rivaling the HK LEM trigger system) and ergonomics are perfect form my hands. It seemed to be the perfect EDC beater gun. I'm glad I didn't buy too early. Since then I've heard of 2 people experience or witness KB's on the 9mm variant. I know it's not good mojo to diss a gun based on 3rd hand information but what happened today was the kicker. A friend of mine showed me his P250 asking me to help reinstall his extractor. He said it just flew off during his last range session. This was after a KB with factory ammo. The case just ruptured but the magazine stayed put so he thought the gun survived a case failure with no hitches. Usually the mag is demolished during a KB because of the extreme pressures emanating from the chamber. We got the extractor back in but upon closer inspection, I noticed that the frame was slightly bulging on both sides above the trigger area. As we took the gun apart yet again, we saw that the frame had actually cracked near the area where the serial number is located. Previous reports state that the P250 chamber too loose for comfort. I dropped in a Golden Sabre 9mm and confirmed that statement. The bullet was rattling inside the chamber which means there is enough room to expand and rupture even for brand new factory ammo. Could the P250's efforts toward reliability actually cause its downfall? Pics to follow.
