Is Glock the only one with options?
So, I'm no gun expert, but when a friend said he wanted to buy his first gun, I really wanted to steer him toward Sigs. However, there are a few things he's looking for:
Conceal-ability (Compact or sub-Compact)
Easy conversion to 22LR
Budget ($500 range)
I thought that surely there must be something Sig offers for that, maybe a P250 Compact with a 22LR conversion kit, but I haven't found it. Glock, however has Caliber conversions for almost every gun they have... I really don't like Glocks, but it looks like they're the only maker that has what he's looking for...

I don't believe that SIG offers a .22 conversion kit for any of the three P250 frame sizes.
You can get caliber exchange kits in .45/.40/.357/9mm in each of the frame sizes; full (4.7" brl), compact (3.9" brl), and sub compact (3.2" brl). They recently started offering the sub compact in .380 also.
You buy one P250 (any size/any caliber) which gets you the serialized Fire Control Unit. That FCU will fit any of the exchange kits.
It's a very flexible system in terms of size and caliber; gives a new shooter a lot of options to try without having to buy a lot of guns. Remember, the FCU is the "gun" which you register.
I have about 3500 rounds through my 9mm compact and subcompact set ups without one failure to feed/fire/eject, not one!
It only comes with DAO trigger though. But it is very smooth; I wish that my 229 DA was as smooth. And for a new shooter, DAO is a good place to start learning in my opinion.

Why get a 250 when you can get a real honest to God Sig.
You can do conversion on the 226, 229,239. To be forthcoming about it, also H&K.
Any one can go down from 40 with either a Sig conversion slide, or cheaper, and as far as I am concerned, better Bar-sto makes conversion barrels available at Top gun to go 357sig or 9mm.
The magazines for all 3 will feed 40-357sig-9mm just fine. For 9mm I needed a 9mm recoil spring to be flawless. Bar-sto makes a very accurate barrel.
I know this is a Sig site, but I have never understood why you would want a 22 conversion that often does'nt work quite right, when for less money one can buy the best 22 out there. The Ruger Mk II or III. I have never heard of Ruger 22 problems. Tried and true.
