Potential S&W Sigma owners please read!
I am brand new to this forum and thought I would post my first comment about my newest purchase!
I have been researching the S&W Sigma 9mm for quite some time and decided to buy one. I got it for $274.00 at Academy Sports. I heard of all the many potential problems and the long trigger pull. This morning was my first time shooting this pistol and I was pleased. The long trigger pull is indeed a fact, but if you are accustomed to shooting double action (or hammerless) revolvers I do not believe that this will be a problem for you.
I went with the S&W sigma for two reasons. One, the S&W brand. Two, the price. I was on a limited budget and could not afford a Glock or a S&W M&P 9mm. I wanted a pistol for personal protection and home defense and I believe that this pistol will serve me well.
While I was at the range, I shot a Glock 19 and this trigger pull was much lighter. My groupings were tighter and my accuracy improved. I am bummed that S&W would make this trigger stiff but I realize it is for safety reasons. With time however, I think I could get used to the stiff trigger pull on the sigma 9mm . Other than that I am glad I went with this gun. I would recommend this pistol to any potential buyer.
One more thing, the earlier posts concerning the rebate or free mags is no longer available. If any one knows otherwise please let me know
