S&W Sigma .40

S&W Sigma .40


Any one else have one of these? What are your thoughts? Im not real pleased with mine. I purchased it a couple of weeks ago and put about 150 rounds through it. The triger pull and travel is long and heavy, it shoots about 2 feet lower than I aim and the rear sight doesnt have adjustable elevation. I cant get better than about a foot and a half groop at about 10-15 yards not to mention that after the day of shooting I had a huge blister on my thumb from the hard plastic frame rubbing on my thumb durring recoil.

Did I get a bad one or do they all suck? Maybe it just needs to "break in"

sig is not a bad gun, but maybe its not the one for you. i have long skinny fingers and its hard to find a pistol that im comfortable shooting with, maybe you can try a different model to see if it fits your hand better.

this one feels great in my hand prety close to a 1911 the main reason I chose the smith. most other guns like the glocks and sigs feel like gripping the fat end of a base ball bat and dont feel comfterble at all. I just dont like how it gave me a blister... guess enought shooting with it my thumb will get callused and I wont have to worry about it. haha.

annother problem I may be having too is that I have never been great with auto hand guns. I can hit any thing with a wheel gun.

I really wanted to get annother single 6 ruger but I was wanting a personal defense gun so I got the sigma. LOL what a failure. I wouldnt truck that gun with my life if it takes me a 14 round clip to hit a paper plate at 30 feet away.

that little 22 revolver I could shoot some thing in the eye at 30 feet it would have been more practical for self defense.

Sigmas are pretty much known to be the worst thing that S&W ever made. Sorry dude. See if you can unload (that is sell, not shoot) that one on someone else ASAP.

you could keep that one close to you at night, like in the nightstand. because if you should need it in the middle of the night you'll probably be shooting in close quarters. dont give up on it yet.

ok, heres what to do that happened to me. put it in the case and take it to the next gun show and when someone ask's you if your selling let them see it and give em' a price. you would be surprised. you can sell it fast.
