Sig Sauer P250 ASP
Built for training and ready for the 10 meter target range
By Dennis Adler
The P250 ASP is a DAO design and is offered in two finishes, all black or with an OD green frame and black slide.The blowback action pellet gun uses a reversible rotary 8+8 capacity magazine.
Introduced in 2008, the original DAO, cartridge-firing Sig Sauer P250 was specifically designed to address the future needs of the military, law enforcement, and civilian shooters around the world. Offered in 9mm, .40S&W and .45ACP, the P250’s innovative construction pioneered Sig Sauer’s current series of modular designs that enable users to interchange the frame, barrel and magazine for three different platforms; subcompact, compact, and full size, by moving the fire control housing from one frame to another. This also allows a change in caliber from 9mm to .40S&W or .45 ACP all with the same serialized fire control housing (technically “the gun”). This model formed the basis for the new Sig Sauer P250 ASP (Advanced Sport Pellet) blowback action pellet gun, which is a near one-to-one match to the full size P250 model, and designed to provide hands-on experience with a comparably styled handgun. This is more so in terms of trigger pull, sighting, and operating the magazine release, than in the overall operation of a cartridge-firing P250 model.
