Default Selling the Sigma, should I get an XD or a Sig?

Got my first handgun a while ago, a Sigma 9mm. I actually like the gun but now I have a craving for something a little nicer and with a better trigger. I have been looking hard at the XDs and a little at the sig. What should I get?

Heres a couple I have been looking at.

Sig Sauer 15 + 1 Round 9MM Compact w/Night Sights/Two Tone F for Sale at Buds Gun Shop $507.00

Springfield 9mm 4" Two Tone Package for Sale at Buds Gun Shop $512.00

I'm kinda leaning towards the XD. Such a nice looking gun.

Both are excellent reliable brands. I went through a similar ordeal with both a 40 SW and a 9mm. Decided on an XD and 92FS based largely on the $200-$300 price differences as all three guns were comfortable to shoot and handle. A SIG 226 in my neck of the woods, NJ, goes for $850 plus, add at least $100 for Trijcons and thats a bit high for my budget.

Word of caution however, I do not think you are buying a P226 for $500, that is most likely the SP2022 (?). Not a bad deal, just be sure you are getting what you think you are getting is all.

Best of luck...

mark my word you will HATE that sig..... i had that exact gun and it was horrid, the long trigger pull can mess up your aim and where you want the bullet to end up.....also the gun is mostly plastic, and the cheap mags will cause the gun to jam on you, trust me if you get this gun you will soon be complaining about what i just told you about


i have heard wonderful things about the XD and even shot one myself again cheap plastic and a longer trigger pull than normal ...its no 1911 but its an alright gun

I've shot both and didn't think they where in the same price range but if they are I would go with the Sig. The Sig is not "cheap plastic" and anyone expressing that polly guns are cheap or plastic simply don't know there firearms well, might be a bit biased or just talking out the brown starfish.

When it comes to polly frames I like the S&W M&P, try one if you have the chance if not out of the two your expressed I would go with the sig.

Good luck and let us know what you decied to buy.

We have a new 1911 snob, Jusselin.

Go with the XD, you won't regret it!

For me it all comes down to the trigger. I just prefer a single action type to the long pull of a double action type. I've owned a number of Sigs and while they are great guns, I really prefer the trigger on XDs. Either will serve you well but I highly suggest shooting them before making your choice...

The XD is also double action correct? But the trigger pull is better than the sig?

just speaking from my own experiance.... i know alot of people live and die by the sig lol and i dont mean to offend any of them, but when you hold steel in your hands and fire it, then hold that P250 , there is a huge difference, and that trigger pull was just not pleasant at all for me
