    I have the compact... 100% reliable.. Accurate sig. The trigger is DAO and will take a few boxes of ammo to master. It mimics a revolver trigger. Smooth long pull. Im a fan as long as its Gen 2! Gen 1 had some feeding issues.

    Bought one for my son. He loves it. He can lock back the slide, load the magazine (15 rounds) and take down for cleaning. It is reliable and accurate.
    My Glock G26 Gen4 is difficult for him to manipulate the slide, take down for cleaning or load the magazines.
    My son is 11.

    You're forgetting the best part! You can swap it to another caliber in just minutes. You can make you 9mm a 45! You can take a full size down to a compact.

    I know you can tell by the rail and grip if it's Gen 1 or Gen 2, but is it possible to put a Gen 1 firing module in a Gen 2 frame, thus making it considerably harder to know exactly what you have? I just purchased a P250 compact today, and was thinking about that while waiting for the paper work to process. Not that I think that's the case with mine, was just curious if a less than scrupulous dealer could even do it if they wanted to.

    I have a P250 compact in 40sw. Great shooting gun. Over 1000 rounds and not a hiccup. Also it's a modular pistol meaning you can change grips, barrels and slides in three sizes. Well worth the money.

    The trigger have a long pull but it is smooth and easy. It does take a while to get used to it and the way I shoot mine I use the very end of my finger on the trigger. In my opinion the trigger can use a little shortening of the stroke. There's a mod available that does that.

    Also the trigger follow the hammer. On the last shot of the mag and the slide lock open the trigger will stay back. At first I thought it broke (duh) but it's the nature of the beast.

    I had a 250 .45 first generation didnt like it mainly due to the trigger and sold it . I love Sigs have multiple Sig fireams just dont think I'll buy another poly gun from Sig but i also prefer steel .If I were going to buy another poly gun it would be a Springfeild XD .

    Does it have a hammer or internal firing pin? I am looking at getting one to carry, what type of safeties does it have as well?

    It has a recessed hammer and no safeties. The hammer is fully recessed until you pull the trigger.. Making it ideal for carry. Im not a fan external safeties.. In the heat of the moment you dont want to be fumbling to disengage!

    So very true, I was looking at this one and the 220 another member mentioned. Thanks for the reply.

    I was wanting to replace the plastic guide rod with something more substantial and assumed that would be an east part to find. Apparently I was mistaken...

    I did too! It does seem flimsy... I couldn't find one. I guess we could call Sig.. I know some versions of the 250 came with metal rods so they must have some. All honestly i have 1000+ rds and zero failures.. It might not be necessary. it would just make me more confident

    Haven't called Sig yet, but I did check their website and didn't find anything. I know Greyguns makes them, but they seem to be sold out, always.

    My problem is the spring is so tight against the flat end of the rod that I can't get it off by hand. I'm afraid if I try and grip it with anything else I'm going to snap it. I'm sure it's way more durable than it looks, just not sure if I want to chance it.
