Woke up in the late night last night and can't sleep again... bouncing from web to web and found that the SIG P250 is price dropped everywhere... the new price tag is just 59.95! Maybe the new P320 came out and the shops are putting the P250 into clearance?! But how come the P226 is still selling at 99?

I ordered mine from PA, everything (tax, handling, customs clearance, shipping...etc) included final price just below 100 (USD). Which was just shipped out (by UPS) and will be delivered by the end of next week. Just cross my fingers and hope everything runs smoothly as they can and I can have my new toy seamlessly on time.

I didn't see any shop in Canada sells the SIG air guns. As PA can ship it out to me, I hope I can get it without any problem... It's called 500fps... I am still afraid I can't have it at last...

AGS used to list them but not at the moment.
PA website is not very clear on the Sig pistols, some seem to be marked as ship to Canada, some not. Same models, differenice is only the colour! When I asked, all they would say is if it is marked as such then should be no problem. So let's hope you ordered the right colour...?!
Reviews are all similar, hit or miss (literally!) if you get one that hits in the right place given non-adjustable sights. The 250 often seems good on balance though.

David at oshoot.ca has it for under 100 CAD and they handle all the duty, importation crap direct from PA. It takes 2 weeks to get it, on average.

That's a good option - and could leave me $100 poorer...

The dam* UPS just keep scaring me again and again... my package were reviewed by the clearing agency 3 times after it shipped out... and 2 times in the same day in the same location yesterday, plus once my planned delivery date was gone and I got an exception email notification...

Thanks God it's on the local truck sending to my address... Just hope they didn't damage anything....

Never never use UPS again... and no more purchasing from PA neither....

In my experience, you arent finished yet. UPS has a customs broker service. There should not be duty on items under $200.00 CAD if I remember correctly, but there is tax and whatever UPS wants for brokerage fee's.

Granted, I stopped using them a long time ago, so maybe things have changed over the years and are different now.

It looks UPS still the worst post service I met so far. Since more than 10 years ago, never even once good experience with it. However sometimes it"s not under your control because usually I wont cancel the order when at the final step I found the seller is using UPS, especially you are doing business with big companies... If I buy from eBay something, I will ask the seller do NOT use UPS.

BTW, it finally arrived in the afternoon in a much too large box which looks opened and resealed by customs again and again. Original package looks un-touched and in good shape, however the outer box looks got a hard time all the way to my home...

Very nice SIG P250~ comfortable in my hand, very strong blow back, nice looking, no more white color warnings on the gun, obviously higher FPS than my other pellet shooters...

Cons:
(1) too strong blow back makes less accuracy in fast repeat shooting,
(2) mag made from cheap plastic make me unstoppable thinking it will break in my next time touching it while inserting it into the pistol or loading pellets, or just dropping it to the ground by accident...etc...
(3) drains my CO2 capsule in a super hyper speed...I think maybe a new capsule can maintain less than 30 shots in full power, then less than 50 shots to 60 something, the capsule would not have enough power to push the pellet out
(4) the recoil form the strong blow back will loose the pellets from the plastic mag...

In general, 4.5/5! It will be my everyday carry-on for the coming days instead of my CP99 for a while~ ^_^ (Where I work there are train sheds, doves, apple trees, waste material packages... I can have my good break time alone with my guns~ lol)

Well... the plastic mag is really an issue... each time I finish one mag and turn around it to use the othet 8 pellets, I think I have better to check each pellet before just insert it back into the gun. and every time I can find one to 4 loosed pellets and need to change it or re-insert it into the mag...
And it looks the slightly bigger skirt size RWS orange tin (hooby sport line) fits this mag better than others now...

And anyone can tell me how long the life time of this mag can be?? Maybe it's hot summer now, so the plastic mag will be slightly expended, and it will become toght again in colder days??

Those mags are used on a number of very popular pistols and has become the go-to for many new pellet pistols. I have never had an issue with them; it's all a matter of finding a pellet that fits semi-snugly in the mag, and it is always a good practice to set them with a ballpoint pen or other makeshift tool of your choice.
