I own several of them and think they are great. They are double action only, but with a very smooth trigger pull. You need to handle one and make sure you like it. They are not for everyone. After shooting my first 250, I got rid of my Glocks, they felt cheap by comparison. The removable fire control unit is simple and reliable. I've had no trouble with any of mine. My favorite is the compact .40, but the compact .45 is not far behind. I carry the sub compact .40 everywhere I go. They arealso very accurate, on par with the "classic" Sigs. They are hard to beat for the price. I could go on all day about the 250. Let me know if you specific questions about them, I would be happy to help.
