Well, the SIG is a no-go. Turns out there was a big issue with it, and it needs some gunsmith attention before it can be sold (not sure exactly what is wrong with it, but oh well).
I didn't want to spend a big amount of money on my next pistol because I want to stretch my tax return. I did decide that I wanted something in a .40 caliber.
I was torn between two available choices. The Smith and Wesson Sigma .40 and the Taurus PT 24/7 Pro in .40 caliber. Since I can't get over the fact that Taurus products haven't been that great and some of my friends are having some issues with theirs, I decided to stay American and go with Smith and Wesson.
I have a nice Sigma .40 on layaway right now, and I can't wait to get the pistol. Some people complain about the heavy trigger (that is the only complaint I can find), but the trigger doesn't bother me one bit. The gun fits nicely in my hand, and the 14+1 capacity of .40 caliber is pretty nice also.
As soon as my return comes (the sooner the better), I'll go pick up my new S&W Sigma .40 for the grand total of 380.00 dollars (including the cost of one extra mag).
Does anybody have any observations on this pistol, or are there any other Sigma owners in this forum?
