    Sigma slide cover plate

    Is it possible to replace a sw40ve slide cover plate with a glock slide cover plate?

    Please clarify -what is the function of the cover plate? I'm very familiar with the SW40VE and with Glock and know they are pretty dissimilar guns. Nevertheless, some similarities could exist.

    This is a Glock slide cover plate:

    This is a SW40VE cover plate:

    I'm pretty sure they are incompatible. Sorry.

    Similiarities between Sigma and Glock

    I'd bet that the cover plates wouldn't be interchangeable as there was enough corporate dustup over the similiarities anyway. Smith made a pretty close "copy" of the Glock as it is, interchangable parts would be one step too far, I'd imagine. If it's a look with the grooving you're looking for, you might be able to surface groove the SW40VE plate with a checkering file. Just my .02.

    Ya know, I was thinking the same thing! But people here just want to get answers to their questions. They don't want their motives to be called into question and they certainly don't want to be lectured.

    Its his gun and his money.

    I've had both and I don't think they would interchange. I never tried though. and I have no idea why one would want to . Both are easily available. I've seen them both at midway.

    If that was the case I'm sure you could coat it with something that sticks well to polymers. If I remember right Smith makes Gray and black. With the low cost it wouldn't be a big deal to get a couple and experiment. Though I'm not sure what that would gain someone. I guess if one was going to coat the slide then you could make it match or contrast just right.

    Here's some for Glocks Link

    Na, the poly ones are fine. Just have to be careful removing them or you'll nic them up pretty good.

    Sigma is a 300.00 gun tops. You're not going to see stainless covers or many other bells and whistles. I'm sure there's an aftermarket company that thought about it but the M&P line pretty much overshadowed the Sigma line. I don't see anyone making them because they are not near as prolific as a Glock. Get them out to most of LEO and that might change.

    I really like the Sigma pistols. They are one of the better low cost weapons out there. But you're not going to find a lot of after market stuff for them. A lot of Glock stuff will work but not that cover as far as I know.

    Polishing the slide and wanted the cover plate to be the same. No problems from any part of the pistol. great pistol for the money smooth shooting and no big issue with the trigger like most people.

    Ah, the trigger gets better over time and there's stuff you can do to take a little off the trigger if one really wants to. Personally I like the bead blast finish but I can see where a polish job would look nice.
