SIG have just launched the new SIG SAUER P250 pistol. What makes this pistol interesting is its ability to change calibers!

The frame and fire control groups are available for calibers 9mm, .45, .40 S&W and .357SIG can be changed into three different families of grips: Subcompact, Compact and Full (each available in three sizes). Two types of triggers, standard and short. Very cool!

Overall there are (including left/right hand configuration) 144 different combinations, not bad straight out of the factory.


The P250, a modular pistol that allows the shooter to change caliber and size at will.

The SIG SAUER P250 was designed specifically to address the future needs of the military, law enforcement, and civilian shooters around the world. The P250 will be available in the most popular calibers;(9mm, .357SIG, .40S&W and .45ACP). The P250’s innovative design enables the shooter to quickly remove the functional mechanism and place it into the polymer grip of his choice. This allows an immediate change in caliber and size;(subcompact, compact and full). And after any change the pistol delivers both outstanding accuracy and reliable functionality.

It’s modularity not only provides incredible ease of maintenance, but also provides a solution for accommodating different hand sizes – there are 6 different ergonomic combinations for each size, accomplished by changes in grip circumference and trigger style. Now you can own the world’s only modular shooting system globally engineered to deliver the “to hell and back” reliability you’ve come to expect from Sig Sauer.

    I bought the 250 Compact in .40 about a year ago and took it out to the range right out of the box. Never jammed, but the next round wouldn't always feed in right. I quickly learned that proper gun maintenance quickly solved the issue for the most part. Proper cleaning and lubrication is the best way to keep the gun running smoothly. The next time I took it out I went through 50 rounds before the feed didn't go in and a quick mag tap fixed the problem in around .5 seconds. Noticing it was a magazine issue and not the weapon itself. Other than the feed issues, although fixed easily enough, is the problem with steel rounds. My buddy owns the 9mm variant and was shooting with me one day with cheaper steel rounds. one of the shells jammed in his chamber and he couldn't get it out until the barrel cooled. So this gun requires quality ammo, and like my dad taught me, I wouldn't use anything less anyways. No re-manufactured, no steel, no shady russian brand. Use Remington, Winchester, or Federal, or any other good QUALITY rounds. Never had a problem with the accuracy either, I've shot and hit my target from around 50 yards away, but being my personal and home defense weapon, you aren't going to be going into battle needing to hit anything farther away than 25 feet anyway thats what my AR is for. This gun has a couple of issues, but proper care and maintenance will resolve them. The grip fits perfectly in my hand like a custom molded handle, very comfortable and natural, one of the reasons I chose this gun. But for the price and handling this is an excellent weapon and a great choice as a first handgun.

    The bottom line is that It'll fire when you need it to and you know you're going to hit what you're aiming at. I never leave home without it.
