    Sig P250 and night sights

    I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I just purchased a new Sig Sauer P250 45acp. Sig claims that this gun is equipped with night sights. I don't believe this to be true. I asked the dealer if it came with a second magazine and he said no, but it comes with Sig-lite night sights. I thought well that's a good swap out. I guess my question is: Have any you guys, or ladies, come across this problem.

    UPDATE: I just went through my instruction manual and found the part on sights. It states that this particular weapon comes with "high contrast sights". I guess I got a little worked up but the salesman should not have told me otherwise. Thanks everybody for your replies.

    I'm confused as hell. Are you saying you just paid some serious cash to order a Sig and have no idea as to what you are getting for your money? Or are you saying you have the gun and can't tell if it has night sights or the second magazine?

    Sorry to confuse you. No I didn't order it I bought it right out of a local gun shop. What I am saying is this: Sig Sauer claims the P250 comes equipped with night sights and I don't think they do. And yes I gave some serious money for this weapon.

    Well, it's a pretty easy test. If they glow in a dark room, you have the night sights. No glow, no sights. If your's doesn't have sights, I'd call Sig directly to bitch about it big time since their web site says all 250's have them. Just a thought, as I am not a trusting individual; how well do you know this shop? Is it possible they took off the night sights to re-sell to someone else later and gave you a mag (that costs them nothing) instead?

    I just bought a P229 SAS Gen 2, so I know exactly what you mean about serious money for these things. Night sights were a selling point for me and I'd be pissed if my gun didn't have them (which it does).

    as far as i know all p250's come with night sights. check it out in a totally dark room tonight. mine are a kind of erie green but they do work. the sig site still shows that all p250's are coming with night sites. as for mags, i've seen a few posts in other forums that state there is a bit of a mag shortage right now so several on the manufactures are dropping down to one mag on new shipments and sig is one of them.

    I was a litle confused, too, but more about whether or not they come stock with Siglite Nightsights or the luminescent crap. They are in fact listed in Sig's website as Siglite Nightsights, which are very bright in dark areas. You'd definitely know if you had them. I don't know the whole story but it sounds like shady dealing.

    I would say that if you don't have them, the dealer swapped them out. I don't have a clue why they would do this, but who knows.

    I read through the manual and found out that they come with either siglite nightsites or high visibility sights. Evidently I got the latter. But that salesman needs to get his act together.

    I would say this still warrants a call to Sig. From what you read on their website and the information you got from the salesman, you purchased your 250 fully expecting that you were getting night sights for your money. Instead, you get a gun you can't return and find out only after after reading through the manual, that Sig has the option of giving you night sights or high visibility sights. Not very good customer service from a company that demands a premium price on their pistols. If this happens to more people, and the fact that Sig is now shipping all new guns with only one mag, I think Sig is going to take a serious hit in business.

    Agreed. Sig specifically and solely lists Siglite Nightsights on P250s. I suppose it's just as possible the dealer was blindsided by the factory shipping new P250s with "luminescent" sights and not the Siglites. I would also contact Sig directly considering the circumstances.

    Good luck if you choose to do so.

    I picked up a new P250 compact (40cal) today and it doesn't have night sights,
    so I will shoot Sig a e-mail and see what they say.

    I can save you some time and effort Pete. My dealer got hold of them and they said not all the new Sigs come with night sights. You would think Sig would make this a bit more clear in their advertising. It's kind of misleading.

    Take it back and get a good gun. My 250 is a piece of crap. Jams all the time. Flips the empty right back into your face and won't hit the side of a barn.

    I wasnt a fan of the 250 mainly because of the trigger action (I just prefer a DA/SA) but it really isnt that impressive to me for the price. I would much rather get what Todd just picked up...

    I've been looking at a sig 226. They are supposed to have night sights, too. They, however, look like three dot contast sights and not night sites as I'm being told. I'm going back this week to talk about it with the lgs owner, whom I've dealt with successfully before.

    I have the P229 w/night sights which will look like high contrast sights in the daylight - just cup your hand over the sights and if you see a glowing green dot they are night sights.
