    Ok guys I've been looking at this gun? I want a sig but since im still student i dont want to spend that much. Is this gun any good? Why is it under $500? The p250 is around that same price range but I read they have problems. What do you guys think? which one should I go with? Are the p250s problems resolved?

    220, 226, or 229 are the better Sig Sauer Pistols.

    Save your money.

    You get what you pay for.

    Cheap price = POS stuff!

    Love you like a son so I just had to give you the truth!

    Sorry to have to tell you the truth!

    Best of Luck.

    I agree with mesteve2.. I have a friend that has a 2022 and loves it, but I have other friends that hate them. The 229 is my favorite by far. It is one of my most commonly chosen carry choices.

    The 2022 is neither cheap nor a POS. I've owned both, I'd easily recommend the 2022.

    The P229 is very nice, but not in any way objectively better than the 2022.

    The SP2022 is priced to be competitive in the poly frame pistol category. Due to the popularity and marketing of Glock, M&P and XD, the 2022 has been largely ignored by many, which is shame because it is an outstanding pistol with a proven military and law enforcement track record.

    I am not sure what issues you are referring to with the P250. It seems to be a nice platform with interesting features. Given the choice, I would be buying the 2022.

    I only have "classic" sigs (220, 228, P6) love them all and shoot them a lot. I handled the 2022 and the 250 but did not have a chance to shoot either. With that as the background, I liked the 2022 but not enough to consider purchasing one. I thought it was a little heavy for a poly pistol. Pointed fine though and had a very good trigger. The 250 I liked a lot. The trigger reminds me of a tuned da revolver. The one I fondled was a .45 so it was a little fat (about like a G30) but its stubby dimension was good. I'm in Maryland so the price was stupid high but I've seen them on the net for around $450.00 last I looked. Bottom line is that I'd add a 250 without hesitation. As far as reported problems go? I wouldn't shy away at this point. NEVER buy a product as soon as it hits the show room. They've shaken out most problems by now and if they haven't then use the warranty and get it fixed. Machines have warrantys because machines break. Glocks, Sigs, S&W, Beretta ALL OF THEM BREAK.

    Do your best to get them both to the range, but start with the one that fits your hand better. Then shoot it. Check the warranty and make the buy. They're both good. I've heard good and bad about both and I heard the same crap everytime Sig puts out a new line or updates an old one.

    Have shot both 2022 and the 250. Have shot the 239 and 226 - I like the 2022 the best. So much so I bought it and its still one of my favorites!

    Good choice, but I don't think you could have gone wrong either way. The P250 is so inexpensive because it's an engineering marvel with fewer parts than any other pistol. I think the P250 is the most under-rated handgun currently on the market. It gets its bum rap in part because it is so inexpensive, but mostly because it's big design departure from Sig's other offerings and we all know how resistant people can be to change.

    The P250 had a couple of bugs early on, but relatively few considering it's design is so groundbreaking. It seems they've addressed the issues and the market is responding with the P250 getting some of the contracts they marketed the piece to such as the Federal Air Marshall's.

    :rofl:

    Newfangled pistols getting law enforcement contracts has absolutely nothing to do with quality, reliability, preference, or anything else of the sort. It has to do with giving guns away so the manufacturer can say that X agency carries X gun. For instance, the North Carolina Highway Patrol was given M&P pistols with holsters and magazine pouches in exchange for buying MP-15 rifles. Their 4-year-old P229 .357s certainly didn't need replacement.
