I have the 250. It's been a great saw. It's my go to saw and gets used 90% of the time.

The 261 is about 1.5lbs heavier then the 250. That can make a difference if you have to use it for a long period of time. I have a MS390 also that is over 4lbs heavier then the 250 and it gets old quick using a saw that much heavier unless you really need it. I have a 20in. bar on it and might get a 25-28in. bar but I haven't came across a tree the 20in. wouldn't drop.
