    What are your thoughts when looking at both pistols?

    Does one have a better trigger? Better ergonomics? Reliability?

    Thanks!

    I don't particularly care for either gun but I would take the 2022. Every 250 i've shot has a terrible trigger.

    I looked into getting a P250; I've read quite a few bad things about them, plus they're more expensive around here. IMHO, you get more bang for the buck with a SP2022, which is why if they still have one at the PX on Thursday, I'll be the first one through the door to grab it. Night Sights, two 15 round mags, a case, a cleaning kit. Its a great deal for a weapon thats been decently tried. The U.S. Army Tank and Automotive Command ordered 5000 of them.

    I'm guessing that's the gov. contract CDNN mentioned in their ad.

    I'm thinking of picking up the SP2022. It'd only be $480 OTD (including shipping and dealer fees). Not sure I've ever find a NIB Sig with Night Sights that cheap again.

    BTW, what does PX stand for? I always thought the stores on bases were called commisaries. :dunno:

    Thanks!

    Well, on an Army Post, you have the PX (Post Exhange), which is like Walmart, minus the old lady checking your reciept, and then you have the Commissary, which is strictly food.

    The PX on Fort Campbell is one of the few that have AAFEES (Army Air Force Exchange Service) ran Gun Shops in them. I think its Campbell, Fort Hood, Fort Knox, and Eglin AFB that are the only ones that have gun shops in them. You can get really good deals in them, and the employees actually know their stuff.

    I highly recommend the SP2022. :supergrin:

    Get a Glock.

    The above mentioned are not the best!

    Junk.

    I appreciate the clarification.

    I'll do a little more digging but I'll most likely pick one up sometime this week.

    I seriously need to slow down on buying though. I don't even have the pistol I bought last week in hand yet! But my thinking is, buy up all I can afford now and then when/if I can't afford a gun later, sell/trade to get what I want.

    I've been looking at one of these for a while though. Anyone know of anywhere that sells them for LESS than $440?

    Thanks!

    I already have half a dozen Glocks in different calibers. They are my/my wife's carry guns.

    But for spare pistols or range toys...I have oodles of others.

    Just like investing I feel a gun collection should be diversified. ;)

    BTW, what personal experience makes you say the SP2022 is not the best?

    A good friend of mine has the SP2022. It's a nice gun. I prefer my P228, but the 2022 is definately nice, and I would have no problem owning one.

    I have a 2022 and it shoots well. It would also be lower priced. They are both Sigs so they should be reliable.

    I dunno. I've been looking through threads and the P250 doesn't seem to be getting a whole lot of positive reviews. Most say the trigger sucks and some say it just doesn't feel like a Sig.

    Thanks!

    Try a Steyr and this whole thing will seem redundant.:supergrin:

    Find one as easy as you find a SIG 2022 :whistling:

    i'd rather go to my gunshop or CDNN or apperantly my local PX and get a SIG then hunt around for a Steyr

    Yea. As far as I know, Steyr stopped importing into the country a while ago. You could always get a used one that you don't know the round count of, or that has had the hell beat out of it. EMT, go for the Sig. I've shot a SP2009, which is the same exact gun as the SP2022, but without the rail. I loved it. Reminded me of an HK USP in terms of fit and finish, and reliability.......I've never had an issue with my HK USP 45. Go for the SP2022; I will definitely be come Thursday.

    A USP is a gun I've always had my eye on but I'll be a SOB if I'm going to spend $700+ on a 9mm.

    I'm sure I'll snag a used one sooner or later.

    However, I'm not sure it's fair to compare the HK's reliability with the feel of the SP2009/SP2022.

    Thanks!

    if you want a USP i would keep an eye out on the used market (gunbroker,Glocktalk)
    one of the deals a GT member had was a USP9 with four
    magazines for $400

    truthfully i have used the USP9 and the SIG 228 and haven't experienced vastly superior reliability from a USP that would make me pay for one new

    99% of gun owners baby their handguns enough that we could be armed with french chauchat LMG and never see a jam out of them

    First thing you would have to ask your self is , do I want a DAO which is the P250 or DA/SA which is the P2022. I have never tried a P2022 but have rented a p250 compact in 9mm and 40sw. My take and 2pennies on the p250 is that I like it for me and will get a p250 compact in 45acp. I shot 400 rds between both pistols without a problem and both pistols where dirty rentals. The grip on the p250 fit my hand very well and trigger reach was the same . Target wise both 40 and 9 pistols where POI and accuracies was that of any combat handgun. The trigger pull felt between 4 to 7 lbs that of a Sig DAK trigger and a G35 . The only thing I didn't like was that the trigger had to much side motion play within the trigger guard but caulked that up to being a modular pistol with a removable fire control assembly.

    Never handled a 250 but I love my SP2022. Very reliable and a great value for what you get. I just wish there were hi-cap mags available in the 30 round range.

    Lejeune's PX has a gun shop. Used to be pretty nice, but the last time I was there (a year ago or so) the variety wasn't nearly as good.

    To the OP: The 250 is still working out some kinks. The 2022 is a decent gun.
