price after discontinued

Hi, new user here. Am looking to buy a 250 as my first gun (yes I know it has a long trigger. I like a long trigger), my question is, will the prices rise or drop after official discontinuation? thanks

I would think that would depend on the market for P250's among dedicated fans.

Prices are pretty stable over the years I have followed Sigs.

We;come from Texas.
That would depend of the area of the country and the demand
plus some dealers discount more than others. also as the supply
goes down the price could rise.

The P250 was Sig's entry into the plastic gun arena. It, or any of the line of plastic guns, will never be collector guns as such. In the case of the P250 specifically, it was a problem gun and earned a pretty bad reputation, with a large number of the Gen 1 guns going back to Sig for repair or replacement.

My RSO has one. Sig has seen his twice. He still has issues with it but he has it just sitting in his safe now. Sigs recent line of plastic guns have proven to be greatly improved and from what I've heard, can be relied on but as to holding their value or not - they won't.

Yes, I get that. I don't get the hate of the 250, a long, heavier trigger pull is just every single DAO on the market.

Sig Pro has been on the market FAR longer than the P250... hardly Sig's "entry" into the polymer market.


I don't think the prices will change, there's still a small following, but a lot of folks buy it, try it, and dump it.

What most complainers are really saying is they did not pay attention when they bought a P250 and probably thought "DAO" meant "Glock-like" rather than "really-really-DAO." Read a bunch of people's negative comments about the P250 and you will find a lot of commonality, mostly revolving around blaming the gun rather than taking responsibility for an uninformed purchase decision.

Many complainers went to their LGS, slowly pulled triggers to feel how heavy they felt, and concluded (correctly) the P250 trigger felt no heavier than a P320 trigger and only possibly heavier than a Glock trigger. If length of trigger pull was even noticed in the LGS, it was ignored. The important thing often became price, with the P250 being $100-$150 cheaper than a P320 or a Glock. Once at the range, the horrible truth was revealed; a gun has to be held steady during the trigger pull and many new P250 owners lacked the trigger control skills to do so, nor were they willing to devote the time and effort to develop such skills.

The vast majority of positive comments about the P250 mention that shooters had prior experience with DA revolvers and had developed the ability to manage a long trigger pull. In fact, a lot of revolver shooters describe the P250 trigger as better than all but the best custom revolver triggers.

A good number of total neophytes also report satisfaction with the P250. Nutnfancy did a video in which he asked newbies to shoot a P250. His premise was that newbies did not have difficulty shooting a DAO gun if they were not told that a DAO gun was hard to shoot.

Absolutely correct. I had completely forgotten about that gun. Thanks for the clarification.
