YukonGlocker said:I could get very technical, and make this post very long. But I think that pretty much sums it up. I would not buy a Sigma. I feel both the Glock and the M&P are superior pistols. You can't really go wrong with either.
MrApathy said:dont recall S&W having to pay royalty on the sigma to glock though if glock was smart they should have gotten one.
M&P is hybrid tech.
based on blend of
S&W metal frame line
S&W put some time in engineering the M&P for sure. be interesting to find out how much the price would drop without the fancy slide serations and other cuts.
Sigma has had many evolutionary versions F,C,V,E,VE,GVE,G,M and many more.
the subcompacts were junk. F,C,V suffer dust cover crack. E,G,VE,GVE are newer generations and work well.
good gun simple design could use sear and strikers made of better materials machined out of bar stock. be nice if someone made a spring for the sear lever that wasnt as strong. custom sear lever with adjustable tension on the springs retaining the sear would be simply nice for tuning trigger.
accuracy is all on shooters ability to pull the trigger the gun itself is plenty accurate. deliberate pull is a good safety feature.
Sigma's are sold for $280-$320 simple inexpensive item to produce could benefit largely with a better quality striker,sear and sear lever(adjustable even, simple to do) and lower spring for the sear lever.
M&P has metal subframe locking block with frame rails attached and linkage from front block to rear fcg block with frame rails which is nice and may add to durability or serviceability.
