I shouldn't be voting 'cause I've only fired the XDsc9 (my cc) of the 3 you listed.
Great gun - love it.
BUT it is what it is - a 9mm.
I would love to be able to convert mine to .45 for the extreme fire power in self-defence,
& even down to .22 for 1,000's cheapest plinking rounds for tons of practice with my one & only self-defence weapon.

That is my dream gun - my XDsc that's a .22, 9mm & .45 all in one sweet little package.

No. Not unless you have a buyer lined up to give you $550 for it and you can get another, better gun.

First off, Sig p250s generally cost less than XDs from what I've seen. I've seen them advertised multiple places for under $500 the past couple months. $430 is a very good price and the p250 is probably a good gun. But it's not an XD. It's not as proven, and it's not as popular...and "popularity" is actually important, because it translates to cheaper parts and accessories and an easier sale should you ever decide to part with it.

Personal taste aside (but not to be dismissed), the XD is the more practical option.

Right the XD is Springfield's bread and butter, whereas Sig's can be found in their $700+ p220/226/229 aluminum platforms. And I suppose that's not without just cause.

If you're happy with a P250 for $430 - then buy it. Just know you are NOT getting a $750 gun for a discount. If the P250 were really a $750 gun then people would be buying them at that price. S&W could set the MSRP of a Sigma at $499 - but that doesn't mean folks would pay that.

The $700+ Sigs are the classic aluminum frames - the 220/226/229 - not the poly guns like the 250 or the 2022...

No not really, that is an excelent price, but I am not a fan of hammerless pistols. Everything depends on what you will be using the pistol for, it sounds like CCW or SD because of the size. Most of the referbished Sigs I have seen (LE trade-ins) are 3.53 inch barrels. While Sig is known for fine shooting firearms, I am not convinced of that.

I went with a FNH FNP40 with all the features I wanted, 4 inch barrel, 3 free magazines, 40 S&W, DA/SA trigger, manual safety & decocker, conpletely stainless steel gun (upper) no matter what color, lifetime warenttee, slip in barrel change to convert to 9 mm, 40 S&W or 357 Sig, excelent trigger pull, outstanding sights and fits the same holster as my 1911, pt92 or pt 140.

Yes it is more than $430 about $100 more but it fits my needs, only you can say what you want in a firearm.

Good Luck and happy shooting.
Jim

Is there something particular that makes you doubt that Sigs are fine shooting firearms?
