Looking at a P250 9mm

I went to Academy today to look at their 9mm selection. Recently purchasing a 1911 in .45, I already have the big boy 2lb, 5" gun...which isn't too great for my upcoming CCW. So I wanted something smaller. I went in with a short requirements list:

9x19mm parabellum
Compact polymer frame (<4in bbl)
Somewhat high capacity (12+ rds)
Bottom rail
Somewhat ambidextrous friendly
max $600
Lastly, fits me like a glove

So I went in with my mind on XDs, a couple Sigs, and a few Glocks. I'm not too terrible impressed with Glocks. Yeah, I know, they are some of the most reliable guns in the world, but I just can't get over their ugliness. And even though I'm not silly enough to base a purchase on looks, just feeling them felt combersome. Grips were pretty wide, and none seemed to fit me good.

The Springfields I honestly like, the .45s especially. But I wan 9mm...so I looked at a few. Price was pretty important to me but with the XDs, none filled my above list, some were cheap, but no rail, or some had a rail but a horrible grip. I've ALWAYS likes Sigs...so I check out what they've got...and they have this puppy:





It is 9mm (check), and out of the three they had [full size, compact and sub] I liked the compact (pictured) and the sub, but the sub didn't have the rail. I believe it was a 15rd magazine, double stack, with ambi slide release and easy to reach mag release with my left middle finger. The grip what PHENOMENAL....just fit me like it was made for me. Especially with the groove cutout for my thumb on the right side (left handed). Lastly....they have it for $389. So I'm about 90% sure about it being my next purchase. I'm just going to get some discussion and words flipped around before I buy this. Most of all, I need my CCW first, I can't stand this BS 72-hr grace period.

So lets open the floor...anyone with one, fired one, etc- lets hear it!

I had always thought the P220 was a 45 only! Now I want one! I have the Springfield XDm in 45 with the 4.5 inch barrel. Its a sweet piece of equipment even up next to my Sig but my 226 is my carry piece now. Gonna have to check out my Academy and see what they got when tax time rolls through!

Hold on a minute. Isn't that a P250? Thought it looked funny for a 220 mis-prints suck! got me excited for a few! still a nice lookin piece though!

Uh. Yeah. That's a 250 and I've never been a fan of the 250 trigger.

I think the p220 was made in .45, 9mm and .38 super. You can find a 9mm on gunbroker from time to time but I've never seen one anywhere in .38 super.

In the picture, you are holding a 250. That is not a P220.

I have a 1982 Sig P220 in 9mm made in W. Germany and a late '80s Sig P220 Montage Suisse in 9mm as well. They were also available in 38 Super and .45 as well back then.

Modern P220s are .45 only.

Well where the heck did I get 220 from? That's what I get for posting at 5am.

Shuutr, what did you not like about the trigger? As you can see Academy has their BS trigger locks on, so I couldn't get to play with it.

P250 in 9mm is hardly rare.

If you're seriously considering a P250, you should really feel the trigger before you go final. Not that it's bad, it's just not everybody's bourbon.

The pull was long and I tended to not be able to keep on target as well as I do with my 226 or my 2022.

Thanks. Between the 250 and 2022, which do you like better? I'm also considering the 229.

There's actually four on gunbroker right now. I usually find the auctions after they're over and when I'm out of cash.

If you want to carry and want a P series, try a 239.
Right now (probably) the only Sigs I would buy is a 239 or 220. When I held a 239 it was like made for me. They had a 225 and a 239 and there was no question for me.
