A friend is not comfortable with my Glock, so I'm looking at other options. Any comments would be appreciated, and thanks!
I agree with this. I had a P250c in .40 for about 1 year. I ended up trading it in because it had too many failures. There is probably reason they are only about $360 new now. I would not feel comfortable recommending it to any of my friends.There are tons of good alternatives to Glocks. XD's, M&P's, FNP/FNX, HK P30, Beretta PX4 Storm, just to name a few. If I was gonna go Sig(which I have, 4 times), I would get an all metal gun or a SigPro, I would avoid the P250, I have heard nothing but bad things about them.

Honestly, if the P250 subcompact is the same size as the G26, I would trade my Ruger LCR 357 for it. If you like revolver trigger, the P250 is smoother than my LCR trigger.I like mine. But the design has gotten a pretty cold reception from lots of Sig fans. Most dislike the long DAO trigger stroke. It's something you have to work with if you've done some shooting with guns that have well tuned triggers, but it's certainly possible to master it.
The Sig is priced where it is simply because that's the only way Sig can move them. The gun debuted with outrageous MSRPs between $750 and $870, depending upon configuration, and no one wanted them.This handgun costs very little to manufacturer, hence it's lower price point than what people would expect. When comparing the low price to a Glock, keep in mind that Glock USA pays Glock Austria so there is an extra step in pricing.
I can't say anything about the debut price, but I was at the same gunshop I brought my 250c from and I discussed this thread with the owner. He says, for what some consider such a poorly designed, poor quality pistol, it is one of his better selling pistols, and sells on average 5 a week. This isn't some gunshop, but a small sporting goods store. And he has never had to send one back to the factory for repair work.The Sig is priced where it is simply because that's the only way Sig can move them.

From what I understand they've done allot or redesigning on the gun. I've seen more than a couple at my range that had problems. One was a recent as 3 weks ago. Right from the box the gun had odd double feeds regardless of ammo or person shooting it. He called SIG and was told the ever popular "their is nothing wrong with the gun your limp-wristing. Seems I've heard that one somewhere before. His gunshop took the gun back in trade for full value towards whatever he wanted. They are hit or miss to say the least.
Please. Sig didn't plan to rip off the buyers of the initial run of the pistol and then cut prices in half a while later. They introduced the guns at an intended permanent price point, the gun-buying public balked at such ludicrous asking prices for average guns, and Sig was forced to slash prices to keep the model alive.As to the higher pricing, Sig put a higher price tag on it to recover tooling cost quicker with higher profit dollars for them and probably the dealers. Dealers aren't making much on them at the current selling prices.
That could be the case. I was just giving my experience with the P250c that I had. Even if they are "fixed" I would not buy another one.FYI, the only issue with P250 were the compact version and not subcompact.
Sig Sauer already fixed the old issue of the P250 compact series and redesigned them. Any Sig P250 compact that was built or manuf. from Dec. 2010 and after are already bug free or new version.
If you have a bad experienced with P250 compact and yours was built before Dec. 2010 , this was an old news and an old version.
