Sig Sauer P250

The Sig Sauer P250 is one serious pistol that provides just the right features to make for a perfect carry gun.

The P250 is a superbly molded gun with polymer frame, without showing any voids. Precise machining has been used to ensure top-class finishing. It is durable and keeping it in the leather holster does not make the finishing look dull.

The twin slide releases of Sig P250 are worth mentioning. They do not have any other functions such as acting as a barrel link or takedown pin. This makes it easy to place them rearward on the gun. The placement of the twin slide releases helps you easily swipe them with the thumb, without changing your grip.

The Sig Sauer P250 avoids manual safety by placing the de-cocker to the left side of the grip. The manual de-cocking level, however, is unnecessary because of its DAO lock work feature.

The magazines for the P250 come in a number of available capacities. The 40 caliber Sig Sauer P250 includes magazines in 12, 15, and 17 rounds sizes, which are all upward compatible. The subcompact can use any magazine size; however, the compact can use 15 and 17 rounds. The full size can only use the 17 rounder.

No matter which frame configuration you go for, the Sig Sauer P250 is extremely comfortable to use. The recoil is negligible and gentle in the full-size frame and slide. It is not built to offer lightweight, therefore, its weight, in the range of 30-38 ounces, helps reduce recoil and muzzle flip.

The Sig Sauer keeps the operating controls less complicated and easy to use. These only include a trigger, a takedown lever, magazine release and ambidextrous slide releases. The magazine release can be reversed for operation with left hand.

The Sig Sauer is known to have featured "Post and Dot" sights in their products, which was not so welcomed. However, the P250 features a drift-adjustable dovetailed front sight, and fixed and interchangeable rear sight. If you are willing to pay a few extra bucks, you can also order tritium night sights.

The DAO trigger in the Sig Sauer P250, are light and user-friendly. The trigger measures 2.7 inches from the back strap web to the middle of the trigger, at rest. The middle of the trigger travels a bit longer than the striker triggers, reaching to just over 0.6 inches. It weighs around 7.5 pounds from resting to break, without any grit, stacking or over travel. For accuracy, it is very easy to stage the trigger reaching almost full-cock for aimed fire. The trigger pull is consistent and smooth, making sure to provide you with utmost satisfaction in the most important area of use of the gun.

It is somewhat difficult to look for holsters for P250 because it is not designed like other Sig Sauer products in the market. The P250 is available in standard and compact sizes, amongst which, the sub-compact conceals comfortably. However, the full size version is not suitable for concealed carry.
