A Sigma is made by Smith & Wesson. This is the one that had the legal issues with glock.

But then there is Sig Sauer which makes really high quality handguns.

Thank you sir. I asked several folks about the sigma and from there on in the conversation they kept on saying "Never buy a sig, their crap."

I should have kept the 2 seperate only from the fact that I read a bunch of books. One author I read is a gun genius and he always referred to and over explained handguns. A sig wasnt his first choice but always wrote that a sig was in short form "a great gun".

put 100 rounds through it today. it was 100% pure awsome. i will say this, it is alot easyer to burn 100 rounds in a semi, with 2 14 round mags, than it is to burn 100 rounds in a 5 or 6 shot revolver.

Yup! You got it right!!!
Two companies -
S&W makes the Sigma.
Sig Sauer is the other company.
Better quality with the Sig(Sauer), but, like anything else, you'll pay a few more $$ for it.
But worth it, IMHO!
SIG SAUER

Sorry for the posting, was on pg 1 of this thread and hadn't read all the rest of them.
But I'll stick with my opinion!

no prob. if one of my threads can get someone the info they are looking for that is great in my opinion. there are many much nicer guns out there for way more $$$$$ and plenty of cheeper gund out there that feel cheep in your hand. i just think that the sigma is one of the best bang for your buck guns out there

buckfever - Recommend the Sig Sauer P229 Equinox in 9mm if your into punching paper. The 40 cal are nice too but much harder on the internal components. You will pay more but there quality is outstanding.

The X5 guns pistols are the high end and suburb as they are machined and assembled in Germany however they are out of most people's budget range. ($1800-3200)

son has a 40 sigma, I think for the money its not bad. I've seen Cabela's sale these around $300.00. When I get ready for concealed carry I will look at Kimber. I like my custom royal in 45 cal but will probably go for a 9 or 40 with a smaller carry.
