P250

The Sig Sauer P250 is a semi-automatic pistol chambered for 9mm, .357 SIG, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. The P250 has a modular design, so it basically snaps together and apart. Not just the slide to the frame—everything. That’s what makes the P250 so interesting. Everything on the pistol is interchangeable except for the action, or the mechanism that actually strikes the round. Shooters can swap out the frame and turn it into a compact or sub-compact pistol. They can adjust the grips for comfort and ease-of-use. Or, change the caliber with an easy-to-use conversion kit, which replaces the slide, barrel and magazine.

Standard features on the P250 include a Nitron finished slide, which is a black non-reflective finish. It has an ambidextrous slide release and a Picatinny rail for easy mounting of a laser or light. It uses a locked-breech system, so the backwards force is focused on a spring in the slide rather than putting stress on the frame. It has a double-action only trigger that sets off the action with a longer pull. And it comes standard with three-dot sights, but Siglite night sights are available.

Although many are skeptical of actions built for multi-caliber use, the P250 has gotten good reviews. Sig Sauer recommends the P250 for law enforcement, military and leisure shooting.
