      Sigma Owners Is just me or....

      Is it waaaaay too hard to find accesories for the sigma pistol. Even on the S&W site they don't have JACK!. I am trying to mount a multi rectile red dot or holosight to it but I am about to give up. If you do find something it is usually not is stock. What gives? And why did they go with a different style rail?

      Well, to be honest - a Sigma is not a typical gun that most people would do all that stuff to. The trigger is rather heavy - which doesn't lend itself to range sharpshooting. And, the gun is rather inexpensive. U might just wanna sell it and buy something else maybe...

      Accessories for a S&W forget about it! I called the Performance Center to see if they could scope mount my 952. No way. Wouldn't touch it. Be happy they furnished you a magazine. Lucky Glock owners have accessories out the ying-yang.

      I have a .40ve and looked around a little and learned in a hurry that other than the lite for the rail and a holster that's about it. The lite has to be the one S&W has. I just use it for a house/car gun as it is dependable for shooting. How did you get that trigger down to a 3.5lb pull?

      Well maybe not 3.5....probably more like 4.5 or 5. I had the Wolff reduced trigger spring install by a local gunsmith. Alos had the sear polished. Only cost me 60$

      I thought about selling it but Gander Mountain and Scheel's Sporting Good would only give me135$ for it. I JUST GOT THIS PISTOL IN SEPT.

      The price was just way to attractive to me. I wish I had found this site before my purchase.

      Don't get me wrong, I do like my sigma. I think it will be my Carry gun for when I go to camp/hunting.

      Thanks Uno99 for the info on the trigger. I am just quessing but a stock pull must be about 9lbs pull or more. I know it took me awhile to get use to shooting that sucker.
      If I was you I would keep the gun and save up and get you another one. Use the Sigma for a house gun. I shoot mine about every other trip to the range to stay tuned up with it. It does go bang everytime I pull the trigger.

      There are accessories out the "yin-yang" for the majority of my Smith & Wessons.
      S&W typically has pretty good customer service. It's just that I don't think they've ever done anything like that with a Sigma before.

      I think the reason that the scope mounts are hard to come by is that there isn't enough demand. But there's got to be someone that can fit it with one.

      Be aware that lowering the trigger pull that much may cause some light primer strikes over time - after maybe a year of using the gun. So, be careful.

      I read on the S&W website today that the M&P compact can be had with a 10lb pull. Is that optional or do all the M&P's have that?
      I personally like the heavy trigger pull on my 40VE, I think that its the guns way of telling you that you will know when the trigger is being pulled so it cuts down on the "accidental" discharges.

      Somewhere I recall seeing a mount for the J-point for the Sigma..Maybe it was EBCO not sure ..You can check with them..The J-point would work well on the Sigma,I have some on CZ's and 1911's..

      You make a good point there Triton. You have to want to pull the trigger before it will go off. No ADs with this gun.

      What is a J-point?

      I agree with you Revolver. But, it's suppose to be a custom built shop. That model (952-2) is designed for pinpoint accuracy. A scope should be available. But, the guy was clear...no can do. I'll bet if Doug Koenig wanted it done, it would get done.

      It means the gun many not go bang when U need it to - not w/o pulling the trigger multiple times to get it to fire - not ideal in a self defense situation. I've seen guys play around with springs on various guns - hammer springs on external hammer semi autos, and striker springs on many polymer guns. WHen U bring it down too much, it will seem to work a while, but will start to have issues after a while. If it is a range gun, then it doesn't matter. U can put it back the way it was if it starts having issues. But on a gun U rely on for self defense, it can be a bad idea.

      Thanks for clearing that up for me SHIP. The gun is not for defense just for fun. I have been looking at a 1911 Kimbers 45 with the 22lr conversion kit. Not cheap but it looks like a great pistol.

      Buy a Sigma, learn trigger control...

      I agree, the Sigma is pretty much a basic pistol but a very dependable and inexpensive one. I shoot my MP40 & MP9c pretty good. That's probably because of the dry firing at home, I did with my SW9VE. It really helped a lot mastering trigger control. If you can hold on target with that heavy trigger you can do very well with a lighter trigger, imo. I still like my Sigma very much even though I have bought the two MP's. I'll keep my Sigma and it will remain just like it came out of the box except now it's well broken in.
