Same hinged trigger as the Sigma.

The M&P has the articulated trigger, too, but the Sigma's trigger and trigger guard are smaller, which is unfortunate for those of us with bigger hands. The SD series looks like the M&P, more angular than oval, and easier to access quickly.

Let's Compare. I like them all. So I will have all. Eventually they will have their own Forum just like the 1911, XD, and Glock. I will not rest.

Interesting looking pistol. The link would not open, so will try again later.

Go for an XD40. Won't break the bank and you won't find a more accurate, easier shooting gun that the XD. It fits most hands better than other semi autos, comes with a holster, double mag carrier and a mag loader, plus they will take care of it forever. Springfield is a great company.

I do not like the XD. I won't list my reasons. M&P is better IMO. I prefer the Sigma over the XD. I am very interested in this S&W SD9.

You and I will discuss this statement in the future but for now I must retire.

Just a Preference. I am sure the XD people love their Pistols. I personally don't.

I've had two Sigmas (a glutton for punishment, I guess). Personally I like Glock in many calibers, but not in .40. XD has them beat all the way there. Ruger makes a nice one now, the SR9, but no .40 yet. Beretta 96 is a nice one. Taurus has the PT-101 that holds a whole lot of rounds and is very accurate, but it's heavy compared to plastic guns.

Sigmas have dastardly triggers. I know lots of people who have made excuses for the triggers, but no one really likes the trigger. It wears you out and reduces accuracy. They would have had to do a whole lot of work on the trigger to improve the Sigma series.

Enjoy life a lot and go to a range where you can rent some different models.
