Default Sigma 40 or hi-point??

I've been looking into pistols on a low budget now and want a 40 s&w. So which is more reliable and accurate.

They are both reliable and accurate and both carry lifetime warranties.

But only one carries the Smith & Wesson name, heritage and reputation though.

Ruger SR40c....

I have had a Sigma and a Hi-point in the past. There is a reason I no longer own them.

Get the Sigma, Don't get the Glock. Maybe check out the SD40. But what do I know.

I'd say the Sigma is the better bet.

Out if the two choices the Sigma is a much better weapon. It does have the trigger issue (heavy pull about 12lb.) but that is pretty easily worked around. Over time the Smith will show itself to be a much better weapon.
