When SIG Sauer unveiled the P-250 there were lots of comments about the great and wondrous nature of this modular design and there was even a super DVD showing how quick and easy the pistol came apart, could be reconfigured and went back together.
At the range, I got to shoot the pistol a few times, but the big long line of gun writers behind me led me to think I shouldn't tear the gun apart right there on the firing line “just to see if I could.”
Well, guess what. It's all true. With the flip of a lever and tug on the slide you are on your way to modular bliss. Not only can you reconfigure the gun (if you decide to buy the other components) but you can clean every nook and cranny in about half the time it takes to clean other guns. And more importantly, the P-250 shoots like you would not believe.
It took me about one magazine to master the longish trigger pull, but after that I was on target like a duck on a June bug.
I say longish trigger pull, that's not really a technical term. You do pull the trigger a long way through its arc to make the gun fire, but the pull is smooth and, dare I say, easy.
Ergonomically, the P-250 is pure SIG and when you get your hands on one, you can feel the quality. This is one pistol that can become anything you want and will serve many purposes for many users.
