Review: Sig Sauer P250

Last week at range I had an opportunity to shoot a number of new weapons. I thought I would take a minute give you all a brief rundown on the good, bad, and ugly. I'm going to start with the Sig Sauer P250.

I am a big fan of Sig Sauer. The Sig Sauer P226 9mm was my first duty gun and I've loved the pistols ever since. When I picked up the compact P250 I wasn't disappointed.

This is a double action only pistol designed to be modular. The serial numbered part can be interchanged with different grips and barrel lengths making for a versatile military or police weapon. One that can be adjusted for different shooters. It is perfect for mass issued sidearms like you have in both organizations. It's Sig's answer to the S&W M&P series.

I'm not a big fan of double action only pistols and when I first pulled the trigger I was not very happy with the length of trigger pull. I was however shocked with just how smooth it was. I felt little or no stacking and the pull was consistent from beginning to end. The gun shot fantastic and at 10 yards I was able to put a full magazine of 16 rounds into a 1.5 inch group.

Follow-up shots weren't as fast as I would like, but that's about right with a DAO pistol. In the end I found the balance and shootability to be outstanding. This is a grade A gun with the only downside being in it's DAO configuration. If you like DAO pistols then I would highly recommend the P250.
