The P250 uses a rear sight that's unique to that model, and it isn't the same as the rear sights used on other SIG pistols. Is that what you have?

Fracking stupid decision by Sig. On a modular pistol no less.
The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People again must learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. ~ Cicero 55 BC

YouTube is your friend. Swapping out the rear sight is pretty straight forward, providing you take care not to lose a couple of small parts that are installed in the body of the sight. You will need to detail strip the slide to make the swap.

Thanks for the responses. Yes, I was able to get a (sig p250 rear only) night sight & wanted to know if it was possible for me to swap out the high visibility white rear sight, or if I needed to take to gunsmith or back to sig.
SIG should offer a P250 sight insert that is dove tailed to take normal SIG sights that will fill the normat space a P250 rear sight fills. This wpuld allow you to swap the part once and the use normal sights ever after.

You may want to take this excellent idea to Gray Guns.

The tritium rear sights on CDNN are a steal - but my 250 came with them. I'd have to agree that the rear sight situation seems like an abomination - but SIG must've had some good reasoning and engineering behind it. My guess is that the hammer needed to be extra-long to ensure reliable ignition so they had to have it come up too high in the slide for a regular rear sight. Wish I'd thought of the sight insert! My 250 still spends most nights on the nightstand beside me - with a spare mag in it's cheapie holster. Still one of my best buy decisions and I wish they still offered it ...
