I am looking at the 2022, and was told that it is being phased out and replaced by the 250. Is that right?
I own both the 250c in 9mm and the SP2022 in 9mm.
I have carried both and competed IDPA with both.
I prefer the SP2022 strictly due to the trigger. The trigger setup is the best I have ever encountered "out of the box".
I found the 250c to be extremely accurate for a short barrel if I adjusted my trigger method to a "smooth pull-through" instead of "staging the trigger".
I prefer the 250c for concealed carry. The SP2022 is just too large for me to carry concealed.
I have the 250 in compact .45. I love it. Not too bad for carry, accurate, breaks down for EASY cleaning, it's simple as heck and for $650 out the door, I could not pass it up. Also, I have only put about 600 rounds trough it but with ZERO problems. No FTE, FTF, nothing!! Get what fits you the best. You can't go wrong with a Sig.
On the issue with the long pull of the DAO, I got the short trigger and that helped. If you get the small grip/frame and the short trigger you should see a big difference.
dosborn is right on the money.
I forgot to include the fact that I use the short trigger and small grip on my 250c.
With this combination, I found it to be a real easy pistol to use in a dynamic enviroment like IDPA.
I.E. the 250c should make a fine concealed carry pistol for you. I carry mine concealed when the situation calls for it and have been very satisified with the results, although I will probably switch to the subcompact when the conversion kits become available.
I have several SIGS. I own the Sig 250c, 226, 225, & SIG 2340. My first gun was the SIG 2340, in a 40 caliber. I would choose the SIG 2340 if I had to choose again my first gun. I love it, it shoots well, always shoots, can changee calibers and hand grips. To change cailbers between 40 and 357 SIG, you just change barrels on the SP2340. This convesion is very inexpensive. To change calibers on the SP250 is more expensive. The only thing I changed on my original SP2340 were the sights, I use it for home defense, and I went with night sights. One drawback I have with my SP2340 is you have to buy SIG's laser sight, since my model has a special SIG rail. The laser sight was about $300 several years ago, but it works and looks fine.
The SP250c has a standard rail and will accept many models of lasers and lights.
Still I think the SP2340 is the way to go. I will never sell mine.
