Sig Sauer 250C-9-BSS P250 Compact 15+1 9mm 3.9"
[250C9BSS]
$399.00
by Mike R Date Added: Monday 24 March, 2008
I just shot 100 rounds with a 250 9MM, and compared it against a Walther P99 9MM and a standard Sig 229 9MM.

Likes:
+great trigger pull IF you are seeking a DAO style, longish travel, feels like a really smooth revolver should. SO that is good if that is what you are seeking
+great 'shooter' accuracy, I literally picked it up first time and first 10 rounds were within 5 inch circle at 10 yards, later when I tried shooting for pure accuracy I was stunned to shoot as good or better than I do with my Berreta 92 single action (within a 2 inch circle at 10 yards). Pretty amazing for a new gun (to the shooter) and double action (for a shooter used to single action)
+lightweight, would make a very reasonable carry or home defense gun
+nice grip (although this is always subject to personal fit) that was somewhat rounded and not he 'slab sided' overly thin grips that most polymers seem to have. If you like a more robust grip you'll probably like the 250 vs other polymers (especially single stacks). If you want the thinnest, flattest gun, you';; likely not like it.

Dislikes
-if you latch the slide back and then strongly jam the magazine home, the slide catch would slip (consistently) and the slide rack slam shut. Seemed like a too light tolerance on the engineering.

Compared to the Walther
~The Walther was a beautiful gun but the trigger action is completely different, more like a single action, very much like a Glock, but without the trigger safety and it's feel under your finger.
~interestingly, my friend, show shoots a Glock, shot far better with the Walther than his Glock
~I shot just as well with the walther, but no better, which is surprising given he difference in trigger pulls
~Having said that, it is a very competitive gun on price and as a overall carry gun, I could be happy with either one

Compared to the SIg 229
~completely different guns. I would advise everyone NOT to compare a 229 to a 250. The whole feel is significantly different

Bottom Line:
Forget the whole capability of changing calibers. Just evaluating the 250 9MM on it's own merits, it is a great gun if you want a light, polymer, 9MM double action with a surprisingly smooth pull with no stacking feel and amazing 'shooter' accuracy. It is a longer and different trigger pull than a Glock of Walther single action 'feel' so if that is what, I'd advise going that way. If you want a full feel Sig then it is likely you won't prefer the 250 to a 229.
