    Was wondering if anybody has used a S&W Sigma .40 it seems like a good gun, similar to the glock and the price looks pretty good. I already use a S&W Model 10 in .38 spcl but want to go with an autoloader in a heavier caliber.

    I've never owned or shot one, but there are severalwebpages talking about how bad the trigger is on that gun.

    There is nothing "wrong" with the trigger, but the pull is long and heavy.

    I would reccomend something of better quality if you are going to use it as a carry weapon. They had a sale on the sygma down at Cabelas right around Christmas time & a freind of mine wanted one. We went down & looked at it after taking it apart I would not reccomend one for anything but plinking, the guide rod is plastic & the spring is flimsy. It just isn't a quality gun. I would reccomend an XD or an M&P or a glock, yes you are going to pay more, but it is worth it. (not discounting sigs they are just not in the same price range nib).

    I have a 9mm Sigma with a bit over 3k rounds through it....narry a hichup.
    I can hit a 5 gal bucket at 100 yds with regularity and 6-7 in groups at 25 yds....at 7 yds, a full mag goes into 4 in easily.
    The trigger can be improved greatly from information found on the S&W forum as well.....
    and there is a metal replacement guide rod available if the plastic one concerns you but, like I said, 3k rnds without issue.

    New to the board but this thread led me to jump in.... I have the SIG and the XD both in 40 cal and they are great. I don't like the fit of the Glock in my hand. I wish I had known when I started to carry and to enjoy shooting that quality counts, in spades. I have a 24/7 (40cal)and a PT140 that I may not have picked up if I had really understood what to look for in a good firearm that fit my hand. In the army I simply carried the 1911 then theBeretta because it was issued. As a back up to the rifle they were fine but if that had been my only issued weapon I wouldn't have been so forgiving. Despite the size most days I opt for the SIG P226 over my XD subcompact. I practice at least every 2 weeks to with both. The Taurus (sp?) pistols will likely end up on the KSL classified site or traded in on a P229 or XD in a .45cal.
