Instead of saying "yeah, our P250's suck, maybe we should improve them" they resort to whining about the government testing standards. This portion of the GOA report jumped out at me.
"Sig Sauer also contends that ATF placed too great an emphasis upon reliability in determining which offers should continue to phase III. In this regard, Sig Sauer argues that reliability was only one of a number of elements to be considered in the live-fire assessment, and notes that reliability was not identified as having any more importance than the other elements."
Sig is whining about too much emphasis being placed on reliability? Seriously? It would seem to me that if that criteria isn't met then how the gun faired in the rest of the testing becomes a moot point. The shooters doing the evaluations felt that the P250's had reliability issues. The plain numbers from the tests show us that the Sigs had more stoppages than the other guns tested. An unreliable gun is worthless and frankly, the P250 has had reliability issues since it was first released.
Without question, quality and reliability at Sig has suffered in past few years. (Disclaimer, my newest Sig is from 2005, oldest is from 1979) Sig needs to quit the whining and get back to the "To hell and back reliability" they're known for. Maybe if Sig had put up something better than the craptastic P250 for testing they wouldn't be in this position?
