SIG should have consulted you for the design of the 250! It looks so much better. Its too bad you can't do the grip screws.
Is the mag release metal?


I posted them together to get a head-to head. Seriously, nice work.
I cant take all the credit, I saw another guy on the P250 owners forum had removed the Nitron from the rear part of the slide, There are also a few other guy's o there who have done all sorts of things to the grip module.
The mag release is metal, I forgot about it and then I ran out of time at work, I may go back and polish it as well.
Thanks again

Maybe it was just the photo.....looked to me like you did part of the slide, but not all of it. Sorry if I'm mistaken, but I like what you've done.

I shaped it a little more, I still need to finish smoothing it out, I will do that at work along with polishing the magazine release.





Still works with the laser/light combo.



I angled it back so it would slide in and out of a holster a little better, Oddly enough it fits my FOBUS sub-compact holster, But the last notch on the accessory rail catches when you pull it out at certain angles.

Again, very impressive work. Really.

I honestly believe that if SIG made a duo-tone model like the one you make, the P250 would sell better. Its just a very attractive finish.

Very nice. Not too much, just enough. A little time and patience can go a long way.

Thanks!.
I'm a jeweler, I have access to all sorts of buffs and wheels to remove the finish, Like I mentioned in an earlier post, The Nitron finish is a real pain to remove.
