I was just looking at the SIG sight to check on the P290 and I noticed that SIG has removed all mention of the P250 stainless models from the website (including the MSRP's). They now list all the models as having a nitron slide finish and the only MSRP's they show are for the contrast sights version and the night sights version. The MSRP for both has been lowered as well. It appears they are not offering the P250 with the stainless slide any longer. If that is true I am glad I bought mine when I did.
