In the gun industry, we don’t see a lot of innovation and maybe the SIG P250 is an example of why. Companies become complacent in their products and then, when they take risks, they tend to flop. I feel it’s my duty as your humble author to inform and educate (and perhaps even persuade you to purchase this hand held innovation).
Somewhere between the ideas of one-size-fits-all to a customized gun, Sig Sauer has developed a system of modular handguns called the P250 series. It allows a buyer to choose the combination of frame, grip and caliber to meet specific requirements, an idea that makes perfect sense but seems almost too good to be true. We’ll review one iteration of this series, the Sig Sauer P250C 9mm to show how it does, in fact, work very well.
At the heart of the P250’s modular capabilities is its fire-control assembly, or frame. The versatility is made possible by the fact that, unlike most polymer semi-autos, the 250’s hammer, sear and trigger, are contained in a single unit. That means the grip, trigger guard and dust cover are completely separate parts of the pistol and are treated as such.
