Ok, I have a question. I have looked over the internals of both the Glock and S&W Sigma pistols. Since they are pretty much the same internally, and in function (i.e. slide stop operation, trigger safety, take-down, etc...), why are people dogging on the Sigma so much? Keep in mind that I know the trigger pull is heavy on the Sigma. That can be easily fixed by a gunsmith for a minimal amount of money. Some may argue that the Glock beats the Sigma just because you have to have a gunsmith work on the trigger to lighten the pull. On the flip side, in order to shoot lead rounds through the Glock safely, you have to change out the barrels (which is not exactly cheap). Both pistols are rated to SAAMI pressures, so I don't think there is any issues with that. I just want to know why the Sigma is dogged so much when compared to a Glock when they both look about 98% the same internally. Like I said, I already know about the trigger issue, and I also know about the fact that Glocks use a polygonal barrel, versus the more traditional 5 in 1 twist barrel of the Sigma. P.S. I do NOT want this thread to turn into an argument or flame war about how the Glock rulz just because it's the uber-leet pistol, and you are a noob if you don't have a Glock, and the Glock just pwns all, etc, etc, etc....... If the pistols are virtually the same, why is the Sigma only about 350 dollars and the Glock around 550-600 dollars? I'm not the expert in any way, but it does seem like you may be paying for a brand name when buying the Glock. Seriously, I want to be educated on this, because I'm trying to find REAL reasons why the Glock costs more. You would think that the Sigma would run as reliably as the Glock with pretty much the same internals/operation, and would be the better value because of how much less the Sigma's cost.
