Sig Sauer

review of sig sauer p250?

Im thinking of buying a sig sauer p250 full size but ive read mixed reviews. so om looking to get some more information, has anybody owned one and whats your opinion?

The Sig P250 is a big steaming pile of fail. It was selected by the U.S. Federal Air Marshal Service to replace their Sig P229 pistols. After less than one year all the P250 pistols were removed from service and replace with the old P229 pistols that they fortunately had not sold off yet.

Then the P250 was part of the selection process with BATF to select the new pistol for the Treasury Department. It was competing with Glock and Smith & Wesson. It was removed early on from the selection process. You can find an amazing amount of info about it here: http://www.gao.gov/decisions/bidpro/4023393.htm To save you some time here is the money quote:
“Based on the results of the shooting tests, the SSB recommended to the contracting officer that Sig Sauer's handgun be excluded from further consideration as unacceptable with respect to reliability.”

In their protest about being dropped from consideration Sig complained that the testing body placed too much emphasis on reliability and that was not fair to them, or in other words, Sig feel that reliability is over rated in a defensive pistol.

Then it was adopted by the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice as the standard pistol for all Dutch police and that contract was canceled before any pistols were even issued. The Minister of Security and Justice, I.W. Opstelten sent a letter dated 8 November, 2011 to the Chairmen of the Dutch House of Representatives explaining his decision to dissolve the agreement with Sig Sauer.

Quote from that letter:
“On the basis of the results of these tests I no longer find it responsible to continue with this pistol. There is no longer enough confidence in the quality of the pistol or in the capacity of the manufacturer to improve the quality or safeguard it. All this brings a risk to the safety of officers on the street.”

Full letter here: http://media.rtl.nl/media/actueel/rtlnieuws/2011/Briefdienstwapen.pdf

On the basis of those tests, 3 agencies, 3 different calibers (Air Marshals .357 Sig, ATF .40 S&W, Ministry of Security and Justice 9mm) exact same results each time I would recommend that people not depend on a Sig P250 for anything important like saving their life
