Yup..they didn't care for the P250....any other rejections? Especially for the models/design that SIG is famous for..such as the P226, P228, P229, P239.

so...that's it then? It doesn't count. Period. The P250 doesn't even have a government agency, that I know of that uses it. You said "loseing contracts" which means active contracts lost...not trials/testing potential pistols for contracts. Now...what contracts were lost?

I never said it was....you are the one that made the statement that SIGs have lost contracts...show some examples please. Go to 'Glock Talk' if you want to play cat and mouse...here you have to back up your statements with a little proof.

"During phase two of a three-phased evaluation process, the ATF asked 20 of its agents to put all three proposed handguns through identical “live-fire” tests.

“Based on the results of the shooting tests, the [source selection board] recommended to the contracting officer that Sig Sauer’s handgun be excluded from further consideration as unacceptable with respect to reliability,” said the GAO, in a decision document released on August 18. ATF agents had recorded 58 stoppages with Sig Sauer’s full-size and compact pistols, 13 of which were considered to be gun-induced and 45 shooter-induced."

first my initial response was to kalashnikovblood in regards to his statement,that glock was unreliable compared to sig you asked for a link one was posted by bilt i do not need to post it again ifn you read the agreement was sighned then backed out of by the dutch thats a contract,due to un reliability.you may have got me on a word i used like losing vs.lost also the atf stopped its tests due to reliabilty.i personally like both of the manufactures and have owned both but kept my glock because of personal prefrence.

I should say that I'm a fan of both guns. I currently own and shoot 6 Glocks, a 17, 19, 26 in 9 MM. And in .45 ACP 2 Glock 21's. A 21 and a 21-C Compensated. In Sig I have a P-226 SCT, and a Stainless Elite. Both in 9 MM.

With that said I think it is foolish to think the Glock gives up anything to the Sig. If I had to choose one handgun to stake my life on, it would be a Glock of any flavor.
