Sig's entry into the polymer market was the Sig Pro 2009 and 2340. Just like the P250, only the frame is polymer. The slide and everything else up top is still metal. The Sig Pro is a neat personal (medium) size gun with a really nice trigger. I prefer the stock trigger of my Sig Pro 2340 to all my other Sigs. The trigger pull is lighter on the Sig Pro.

The double stack magazine makes for a thicker grip so people with really small hands should opt for the short trigger. I prefer the classic metal frame Sigs though. The polymer frame has some vibration that can be felt by the shooter. The steal frames feel more solid. Maybe the newer P250 solved that.

I have nothing against polymer firearms (I do like the weight of metal pistols for the pistol-whipping factor though). What I don't get is the "interchangeable barrels", "Multiple sizes", "infinite possibilities" bullshit, yeah it comes in different calibers, so does the 1911, the 92fs, the XD, Glocks, and a number of other firearms, what makes this different? It's not like you get 4 different barrels and 3 frames with a purchase, so what makes this different?

Still, it looks like a nice pistol, but if I'm dropping the kind of money this thing will require, I'm going HK.

I guess I never noticed the other models as I am not really into poly guns. My first handgun was a P229 9mm which I still have. I just thought it was interesting that this gun seemed to rival the P30 Fire just got with all the interchangeable parts. I had held some polys before and what really turned me off was the feel of the grip in my hand which this may solve. I like the idea of the interchangeable parts/barrels if they are not too expensive. Owning a 45 acp and being able to shoot 9mm though it at the range is a nice option due to $.

Polymer has it's place. I really like my H&Ks.

I find the extra weight of the metal guns, lessens recoil which in turn provides quick reacquisition of target for next shot.

Poly is only for sneaking through metal detectors.

Ya know I've heard this said, but it doesn't really seem to work out that way for me. Using the same loads in my G21 and my Kimber 1911, the Glock is considerably softer shooting and controlled pairs and double taps seem easier with it. The theory I've read on this is that the polymer frame flexes, absorbing some recoil. There might be other factors at play, most probable being grip size. The Glock is a big framed, double stack .45, with a grip that is sized accordingly. Maybe is seems softer shooting in part because my hands have a greater surface area on the weapon.

I like the heavier feel of all-metal handguns, especially stainless. However, frame material is usually one of the last considerations I make when considering a handgun.

The new Sig is OK, but its not all that revolutionary with the modular design. Glocks have had it for years. Any of the small frame Glocks 17/22/31 can swap calibers among 9mm/40SW/357 SIG with a barrel and magazine. Same thing goes for the larger frames, only the options are 45 ACP/10mm/40SW/357 SIG. I've been wanting to get a 10mm barrel and loading dies for my G21.

I've never owned a poly framed gun like a glock as I was planning on having kids and wont own a glock with kids in the house (that safety is horseshit). but the few times I shot it I felt a huge difference in feel between my fs92 and the glock. Not necessarily recoil, but in amount of action and a general buzziness in my hand. the beretta's action is smooth as butter where the glock kinda felt like a dump-truck in my hand. maybe it's the custom work Ken put into mine before i owned it, but I love my brigadier
