A friend of mine picked up a 9mm at a gun show over the weekend...we went to shoot it at the range. The only thing I didn't like was the trigger just like others stated. It was just extremely different from my XD. I think either a job on it or just more time getting used to it being different may help. Still I think a great gun for the $$$$
My son has had the .40 for a couple of years now and the more you shoot it the better the trigger seems to get.
Everything looked fine so the transfer proceeded (obviously). Looked it over more closely last night - nothing amiss. Trigger feels good actually. Much better than the two examples I handled at stores. Time to gather some rounds and send some down range. Hopefully the weather warms up a bit (where's that confounded global warming?!?). Sent the papers in for the free mags this morning.
Let us know how it shoots.
Nice looking gun, I bet you will love it. It looks great in all black, have a good time with it.
so did you get a chance to take it out yet?
Long time, no post. Sorry, no good reason. I have been unusually busy with stuff since the pistol arrived. Nothing pressing, just stuff. So, I have not yet taken it out. But, my two freebee mags arrived today so that is a good thing. I hope to hit a range within the next week or two.
No longer soon to be Sigma owner! FINALLY! Rounds through it!
WOW! another month of stuff getting in the way of firing this thing. But yesterday I finally got to put an even hundred through it. Results were very good, I think.
I tried four different brands 10 each then another 15 each. No problems at all. Accuracy of the gun was as good as I had hoped. MY accuracy was FAR better than I expected. At 20 feet I could easily make 4" groups standing. I haven't fired handgun for almost 20 years, so I was very happy with the first outing.
Trigger pull was heavy (a known and expected thing) but was not a problem. Maybe a little rough/gritty but I am still holding off with any changes there.
I tried the following ammunition in no particular:
- Barbaul Brown Bear 115 gr Steel (laquered) case
- CCI/Speer Blazer 115 gr Aluminum case
- Federal 115 gr Brass case
- PMC Bronze 115 gr Brass
They all seemed of similar accuracy as I did not feel the need to make any "corrections". The only thing that seemed odd was the the Blazers (aluminum) ejected up and back. One bounced off my head, another few off my right shoulder. All the others ejected nearly straight to the side.
I loaded all four mags with 10 rounds and fired them. Then I reloaded each with 15. I did not fire them in the same order the second time as I did the first. The results were the same both sessions.
So, I am completely pleased with the gun itself and the deal I got (thanks Bud's and S&W). Thanks to all here who gave straight answers and opinions that lead to the purchase.
I have a short story to tell about my son's first time shooting. I'll post that in the next day or two in the general long gun section.
For the price a Sigma is hard to beat that's why I own two .40's.
