P220 vs P250

Looking at getting a .45, and have been trying to decide between a very nice low use used P220 and a new in box P250. They are both within a few dollars of each other. Those of you that have owned or used both, what would be your thoughts.

I've owned a 220 in .45 and a 250 in 9mm. I'd go with the 220 but I'd also recommend you shoot both and decide for yourself.

excellent advice gumby...I know which one I'd lean to but that's what works for me (plus I have a history with them )...but I've bought pistols I couldn't try myself until I bought and many people thought it was the cat's pajamas...sadly...not so much for me...

WilliamC, It all depends on what you're looking for in this pistol. The P250 confounds
the dyed in the wool Sig fan due to it's polymer frame and modularity. It is a DAO
with one of the best trigger pulls I have ever felt. So many have posted the trigger
pull is too long when compared to a Glock or a SA pistol. Don't make that comparison.
The P250 is like shooting an excellent DA Colt revolver. The P220 is an excellent "old
school" Sig. It is available with a DAK trigger that is very close to the trigger of the
P250, but is most commonly encountered in the traditional DA/SA de-cocker style.
The 250 offers a modularity the 220 cannot. I (my girlfriend) has a P250 in 45 acp
with a full size frame with a small grip. At 29 oz. it has a 10 +1 capacity that can be
changed to a 9mm 17+1, 357sig 14+1, or 40s&w 14+1 within 2 minutes. Try that with
your 220. The 250 can also change frame sizes from a full size to compact to sub-
compact. It is truly an amazing pistol. As I 've stated before, if I were to do it all again
I would most likely bought a P250 with several caliber/frame size conversions and
forgone buying the other pistols I have. My $.02. Shawn

I only have a P220 in 45 ACP and I really like it. I also have three P229s and a P239. Never handled or shot a P250. The P220 is my favorite. Here is a picture of my P220 Carry Elite with Hogue grips -

I've never fired a P250 but I put 50 rounds through a P220 yesterday and fell hopelessly in love.

I almost want to try a P250 now seeing that Bud's has them for $388 (as of yesterday) and a local guy has one for the asking price of $375 both in .45ACP...but I have enough new stuff I haven't gotten to the range yet...(sold two I didn't use and bought three...this is no way to make room in the gun safe...)

I have a P250c 40sw and I like it. It shoots very well and I never had a problem with it through 1200 rounds. I never shot a P220 but I looked it up and I like what I saw. It's certainly an attractive pistol and a very good reviews but it's a pretty big price difference between the 220 and the 250.

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen. hope everyone had a nice thanksgiving...my neighbor he and his wife have sigs. when i looked at them i fell in love with the Pistols. i read lot`s of revues on the p 220 and the p250. i understand you have to get used to the trigger on the p250. i just didn`t like the polymer (hope i spelled polymer right) frame, i wanted all metal so after reading for two hours and asking questions i went with the p 220. hope i didn`t offend p 250 owners, but the p220 just felt good and balanced absolutely beautiful when i held this baby in my hand. i priced it at Guns and ammo and it was $ 910.00 plus tax, wooooo. i checked with my friend that has a pawn shop and he had it nib for $725.00. i talked him down to $650.00 and i bought it. now i have to get my permit so i can take it with me, this baby is too pretty to leave at home..the guy at Guns and Ammo said he didn`t believe i got it for that, he said well it`s a copy and not a real sig....i didn`t waste my breath b/c i knew it was real...anyway that`s my story. nice site to post on.....i really don`t know how well i did on price, but lot`s of places online the p 220 is $850.00, then you have to pay to have it shipped to a dealer plus pay tax. i hope i got a good deal...Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year to all..

Never had the chance to play with P250. I got to fire about 15 mags out of my dads P220 this weekend though! only complaint I had was the mag capacity! I have a Springfield XDm 45 with 13 round mags so the single stack just seemed too short lived to me. But other than that its a fantastic gun. Ultimately its your choice to make on which you would prefer.

Amunition

What kind of hollow point bullets do i use for my p 220 45 cal. and also what is recomended for regular bullets? any help in this matter would be very appreciated......I am looking at a beautiful nickel plated p 220 45 cal at my local dedaler, it looks like it `s never been shot....i can buy it for $ 500.00. i loveee this Gun so i will probably buy it....regarding the p 250, it`s a pretty Gun but i didn`t like the idea of having to buy different size bullets for it b/c it`s like two guns in one if not three, and it has polymer chamber, i love the p 220 b/c it`s all metal, no polymer, and i buy one size bullet. looking at my p220 45 cal monster i think why would anyone need anything bigger. but i respect the choice of every individual, if you use a sling shot i`m cool with that, but give me my p 220.i did the research online and talked to other people and my mind was made up....Thanks.....

From what i understand the Sig Sauer is used by the Military and Police, so i figure if this is what the experts want there must be a good reason for it.......so i went with Sig Sauer.....
