I make no excuse for the trigger, I just don't have a problem with it. My accuracy is not hampered by it. I carry a Sigma in .357sig as my everyday carry. It is where ever I am. Never once have I had a problem with it.

It is a matter of personal preference.

The XD beats the sigma hands down on the trigger, accuracy, safeties, ergonomics, shootability, gojuness, coolness, sweetness, polymerness, and nonglocknesses.

Does the sigma come in OD green? Huh? Does it huh??? Well then there ya go.

S&W has excellent CS dept. I've had an XD and the Sigma. If I had it to do again I'd probably still take the Smith. Not to say the XD is not a fine weapon. I just liked the Sigma's feel a little more .

Gotta agree about the XD (Gee, I guess I started it!). Anyway, congrats on the Beretta. I haven't shot the new PX4. I have shot the 96 and it was nice. I mainly didn't like the placement of the safety/decocker on the slide, plus when I shot it, a piece broke off. Mag release, I think (the owner, my daughters boyfriend had to leave about then and packed it up). We checked and found it wasn't under warranty. Beretta doesn't have a lifetime like most.

Why Yes, it does.

Nonglockiness, Hmmm. Nothing Glocky at all.

I give up. Why would you compare "non-glockieness" between a Sigma and either an XD or Glock sub-compact? Put that Sigma next to a Glock 19 and see what the difference is!

Better ergonomically and naturally pointing grip for one.

Goju stated something that I was answering. Maybe it is just me but that grip and backstrap on the Glock and XD looks as if it was made in the same mold.

Never said anything about which model, he just said the XD had less glockinessness. And the photos lead me to believe that the Croatians must be borrowing the Austrians Polymer press machines.

Besides this thread says Just for Shihan, so I can do what I want.

I have to admit that the grip on the 9VE that I owned was comfy, but that darn trigger killed the whole deal. I shot lots of rounds through and it only lightened a little then I over-hauled the trigger spring set-up to lighten it, but the dumb thing was still long and no fun to drag to the discharge point. Got a Glock 17 for a 9 mm and it is not only comfortable, but accurate and the trigger is great. Traded my Glock 22 for an XD40 and found the XD lots more comfortable to hold and easier to shoot that the 22. Smith had a fair idea when they made the Sigma (got sued by Glock for it), but didn't follow through and make it more shootable.

One of the nicest .40s that I have and have shot if a Taurus PT-101P. Holds 17 rounds of .40, weights in at about 34oz so it's no lightweight, but that pistol just sucks up the recoil and you can keep putting the rounds in that one little area of the target. Sorry, I got wordy, but wanted to explain myself. Have a great night. If the new Sigma SD has a good trigger, more power to them, but I went on the Smith website and they gave all the pertinent specs except the dumb trigger pull. Haven't seen them reviewed anywhere. Oh well.

Dave
