P250 looooooong trigger pull!

Recently purchased a P250c 9mm and I'm happy with the feel of the weapon, but the trigger pull is ridiculously long. Has anyone here had the short trigger kit installed on their 250, and if so, did it make a significant difference? Was it worth the investment? Really like the pistol, but the trigger pull is almost enough to make me sell it and get something different. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A short trigger, if available, will only reduce the reach to the trigger. A short reset trigger (SRT) will reduce the travel to reset but I do not believe any such kits exist for the 250 because it has a different fire control unit that is DAO. SRT kits are for DA/SA mechanisms.

I recently purchased a new P250C 9mm also.I have a revolver back ground and owned and shot revolvers off and on for years.this is my first Sig.
My recent range trip was outstanding.The pull may be long but it is sooo smooth and after a few rounds I did not notice it was a DA.Double taps were easy.
Accuracy was also outstanding compared to other pistols I own.
With most pistols I had to constanly adjust my grip while shooting but not with the 250C 9mm.
To date it is the best by comparrison to DA revolver or pistol I have.
Compared to another striker fired pistol I have the 250C does not quickly point as my other one,a few more rounds and Ill be adjusted to it and is not as slim either for possible concealment .When shooting the other pistol,because of the thin grip tends to walk up but the 250C stays put.
To add, As a newbie, I do not see much recent talk about the 250 .I have made an exellent purchase and at 1$ under 400 it can't be beat and so far I have not experienced any hiccups with it.Just ordered a extra mag too.
I have a semi DA bug and it is also DA so muscle memory tends to be the same.
This is probably more than what you asked but I cannot say enough about the 250C 9mm.

I also enjoy my P250c 9mm. I do agree the trigger pull is quite long, and as much as it hurts to say, I too might be trading it in sooner rather than later. I bought it on the basis of price, and the Sig brand of course. Looking back at it though there are better choices for just a hundred or so more.

Purchased the P250C last January as my first handgun in large part because of the long DAO trigger pull. Felt it would be a good starting design given my lack of experience and still feel that way about it. In particular, it required me to develop a controlled, disciplined trigger finger in order to shoot accurately; 1200 rounds into it and I'm very consistent. Picked up a new P229 last weekend. Yes, I know, two SIGs in three months - somebody stop me! 40th anniversary coming up next month so my wife said do it. Back on point though. I don't hesitate a bit over pulling the DA trigger on the 229; that shot goes pretty much where the SA pulls go. Plan to shoot the 250 regularly to keep the t-finger in tune (in fact the three of us are going to the range tomorrow).

Hey ThkFrst, congrats on 40 years. My wife and I celebrated 41 years in September. As far as the long trigger pull on theSig 250C, bear in mind that since it is striker fired, that the long trigger pull is considered a safety, thereby preventing accidental discharges, especially when a person is excited and is in a shooting scenario and maybe has the finger on the trigger! Just shoot it LOTS and you will get used to it and enjoy the fact you have a nice Sig.

Agreed, the safety aspect of that long trigger pull is precisely why this handgun novice went with the P250 DAO for the first gun. Am confused by your comment that the 250 is "striker fired"; thought I had that striker vs hammer fired difference sorted out.

I just purchased my first Gun in probably 9 years so lets just say I was incredibly rusty when I took my new P250 out. That trigger pull was killing me at first then after a few rounds I was blowing the center out of the target. For me it is a very accurate gun when you get use to the pull.

Sorry, mis spoke, DAO is the P250 system I believe. There was talk a couple of years ago that Sig was going to convert the Sig P250 to a striker fired weapon. Not too sure if they have or not though. If they did, it is not offered on Sig's site.

The "long" DAO pull of a P250 is probably its best feature. For a defensive carry weapon, it is a great choice.

Get used to it. A long trigger pull will force you to learn shooter fundamentals and how to pull straight back. Don't sell the weapon, just learn how to use it properly. The P250 is a great weapon.

This is the main reason I picked the P250 as my first gun, that and it felt great in my hand.

i agree, the 250 is a great gun. My first sig was a 250c .40. Had it for 6 months and then traded it in on another sig, p226 tacops 9mm. But i loved the 250 so i went and bought a 250sc 9mm a month later to be my carry. This is a great shooter, but that can be said about all sigs. However i did not like the recoil on my 250c .40. Kicked more then my ruger alaskan .44mag.

My first pistol was a 21st birthday present to myself 31 years ago. It was a
Colt Python 357mag 6inch. It was my dream gun. My girlfriends P250 has a
better trigger than any revolver I've handled. I don't know how they can sell
something that good so cheap. Stick with your P250 and learn to use the double action as it is. Shawn
