Significant changes to SIG P250 Compact

Sig Sauer has made two changes to the design of the SIG P250 Compact, 9mm, .40 S&W and .357 SIG models, which affect magazine and holster compatibility.

They have changed the grip so that it is the same as the rest of the P250 product line. The original magazines are not compatible with the new grip, and vice versa.

Original magazines will continue to be manufactured and will be sold for the same price as the new design magazines.

Also changed is the accessory rail which is now a standard picatinny rail. This is a good move by Sig, although owners of existing P250 compacts may not be very happy about the change. The new design may not be compatible with holders that were made with the original design in mind. If you purchase a holster for a P250 Compact in the future, make sure it is compaible with your version of the gun.

    I have a Sig P250 SUBCOMPACT and it has the finger cut out at the grip, but it has no accessory rail. So Im a bit confused as to whether it is a new style or old style. I want to purchase the extended mag off the sig website but am worried it wont fit my pistol. Help!
