Sig Sauer Releases Compact P250 in 40 S&W, 45 ACP

Louisville, KY-The P250, a modular pistol that allows the shooter to its change caliber and size, is now available in 40 S&W and 45 ACP, according to vice president of marketing Bud Fini.

"We're shipping the 40 and 45 now, and the 357 Sig will be coming later this year," said Fini from the floor of the NRA's Annual Meeting in Louisville May 17.

The Sig Sauer P250 enables the shooter to quickly remove the functional mechanism and place it into the polymer grip of his choice. This allows an immediate change in caliber and size (subcompact, compact and full).

Several years have passed since the earlier comments. I ordered the P250 in full and subcompact this week. I believe the bugs have been worked-out. Since i have shot mostly revolversc, I don't expect any dissatisfaction. Will be glad to relay my experience later.

I just visited 2 gun shops in Md. to inquire about the availability of the Sig P250 in .40 cal. Both dealers advised I stay away from this product till 'quality control' issues could be resolved. I have searched the net and haven't seen either any reports from users on the .40 cal version: accuracy, reliability etc. or reports of problems: design, metallurgy, reliability etc..
Do you have any information?

I've had the P250c 9mm for about four months now and have been shooting XD's for years. The trigger mechanism in the Sig is certainly different, very revolver-like while the XD is more like a Glock. Both fit my hand great and put the bullets where I point the gun. The Sig is a little more concealable because of the shorter frame/grip and a couple of ounces lighter. The only real drawbacks to the P250 at this time are:
1) Lack of caliber options for those who dislike the 9mm(the 40 is rumored to be just around the corner).
2) Lack of holster availability although that is beginning to change.

I've discovered that many open-bottom XD holsters fit the P250 since they are so similar in dimensions.

Hope this helps.

I'd like to hear from anyone who's had experience with the P250...How does it stack up against the XD series from Springfield Armory?
