I've had a P250F and a P250SC for over a year; both in 9mm. I bought the 2sum and then bought a separate FCU, making 2 complete pistols for under $800. I've put over 6,000 rounds in the magazines and over 6,000 rounds have come out of the barrels without a single failure, misfire or jam in either weapon. By far the most reliable weapon I've owned. The SC is the one I carry, because if I ever have to pull the trigger outside the range I want it to go bang every time. And with the 15 round extended magazines, I'm carrying more rounds in a SC than many full full size pistols.

If you don't mind saying. Where did you purchase your second FCU? What registration/purchase procedures were followed?

I ordered it through JCWeaponry.com, they are a Factory Direct Sig dealer. Buying the FCU is just like buying a pistol, you have to do it through a dealer and have it shipped to them using their FFL. Once you contact Jason at JCWeaponry he will send you a Firearms Purchase Form that you print out and send it back to him with a check and a copy of your dealer's FFL (The dealer can fax the FFL to JCWeaponary). Once he receives the form, check and copy of the FFL he will ship it to your local dealer for you to pick up. Your dealer will have you fill out the background check just like buying a regular pistol. It comes with the takedown lever so you will have every thing you need to build the second pistol if you bought a 2sum package,

nothing different than buying from any other ffl.

Well, I got 700 rounds through my P250c 40sw and my groups are tighter. Practice paid off and gun's still 100%. Damn, it's a good gun.

It's been close to a year since I bought mine so I would be more comfortable letting Jason at J C Weaponry quote it for you; [email protected] is his email. I've heard the price is different now than when I bought mine. But to ballpark it, it will cost you about 1/2 the going price of new P250 pistol (discounted retail, not list).

The P250 (DAO) and SP2022 (DA/SA) are both unsung heroes of Sig's current lineup. For the money, there are no better guns to be found from any manufacturer. I own both and would recommend them to anyone. Sig had trouble getting both guns correct when they first introduced them (a troubling habit for Sig in the last 5+ years) but they are now very reliable and easy to strip/maintain.

LOL the 938 is a bear to reassemble after cleaning. the spring is flat so you have to be careful not to cut yourself while maintaining the pressure to compress it for reassembly. I can actually strip and reassemble the 1911 and the 229 in the time it takes me to wrestle that little b**** apart and together maybe the gen 2 will be easier. I guess my mission now is to go look at both the 250 and 290 again

I've had horror stories with my first P290 but its replacement, the P290RS, has run flawlessly through about 500 rounds so far.

If you think the P938 is hard to strip or put back together, wait til you get a P290. It's almost as though the guys at Sig sat around a table thinking of how to make it nearly impossible to strip w/o a vise to hold the gun. You need 3 hands to do it.

a local shop here has a FCU, I think it's the full size around 270-290 range IIRC

That's a bit higher than half the going retail rate for a new P250 as RustyTN suggested. I think the FCU fits all 250 frame sizes.
