  • S&W Sigma or Sig Pro?

    Hey guys, me again. So I went in to buy a Glock 23 for $569 (good deal!) but it had been sold. So now I'm looking at either a bigger Glock, a S&W Sigma, or a Sig Pro. The gunshop in town has the bigger Glocks new for about $600, the Sigmas for $329, and the Pros for $529 (I think). I'm not a big gun guy, so I can't figure out how a new Sig is worth $200 (!!!) more than a new SW. Again this is for a police academy. Is the SW a pos or what?
    Thanks guys.

    You'll save at least two hundred dollars in the first couple of years by not having to take the Sigma into the gunsmith for repairs.

        Given those 3 options, I'd say the Glock or the Sig but between the Glock or Sig GLOCK big time. But I do have to admit I am biased towards the GLock, but you can't really go wrong.

          Go with the Glock. If you can't find what you want at your local gun store go somewhere else. I bought my Glock 23 in 2001 for $511.19, its kinda sad that I can remember the price off the top of my head. The Sigma is junk, don't buy one, you will be disappointed. As far as the Sig Pro goes, you will be better off putting that money towards a Glock. IMO the Sig Pro should not be confused with the other fine products put out by Sig Arms. Look at what departments carry. Not too many carry the Sig Pro, if they carry a Sig it is a P-series. Just stay away from the Sigma.

            I was in a similar situation not too long ago.. but I had a choice of a Glock at $600.00+ or a Taurus 24/7 at $400.00. I chose the Taurus. Dont get me wrong its a great gun, never had one problem with it and it eats whatever I feed it, However Im kicking myself for not getting that Glock which I am now looking into buying once I gather the funds.. go with Glock.. you wont be dissapointed.

              Get the Sig.

              Even though its not exactly the best that Sig has to offer, it still beats the heck out of that 2 mile long trigger pull (that feels like sqaushing a frog till it pops) on the Glock.

                glock or sigma

                I've been at it 28 years. I started with wheel guns, soon after, came the only firarm to have- GLOCK. I am a current Glock Armoror.

                I have put thought my Glock at least 7000 rounds with out a failure. That being said, A S&W Sigma in 40 cal is no lite weight. I got one of those for off duty use and it's seen ar least 4000 rounds without a failue.

                I compete with both guns, so that means the get used almost every week. Please note, however, never ever use reloads,you're asking for big trouble.

                So,to answer your question, if it's a function of money, howmuch you want to spend to get stated.

                Essectioally, the S&W Sigma is a Glackalike in many ways.

                Good luck with your choice.
                Keep your head down!

                  GainesvillePD,

                  FYI...$569 for a Glock 23 is NOT a good deal. I just bought the 23 four months ago brand new from OMB Police Supply (www.ombps.com) and paid a total of $505 (this includes the MepPro night sights and tax). OMB is located in Lenexa, KS and they will UPS the gun to you. I'd definitely recommend going with the Glock over the Sig or the S&W, and you can find it a lot cheaper than what you think.

                      I have heard of firing problems with the Sigma. I would go with the Glock of Sig they are both great weapons. Also consider if you are going to be carrying a back up. Glock magazines of the came caliber are interchangable.

                        Glock Vs Sigma vs Sig

                        As a dealer in firearms I can tell you for sure that "Brand conciousness" is alive and well in this industry.
                        The Sig in my oppinion is to complex of a gun to be a good mission critical item, The Sigma is a Glock clone and it is OK but the best choice of the three is the Glock, Screw the frog masher trigger pull, they work reliably and you can hit the target right out of the box. If it gets full of crud from a fall in the mud, you can if you have to field strip it and wash it in a puddle to get it going. Although in a firefight you are not going to have time for such stuff.
                        I have sold Sig's to the following that loves them, and donr get me wrong The Sig is a fine piece its just to expensive and too many parts to go south in it. case in point, the German Luger was an exquisit piece of workmanship but not for warfare. The 1911 was built for the job and did it well.
                        The same goes here. Keep the tools as simple as possible and as easy to clean and repair as you can.
                        Glock Lovem or Hatem , no in between ground at all.
                        Keep up the good work

                          Go with either the Glock or the Sig P series. I carry a Sig P-220, but I also own a Sig Pro 2340. From the discussions I have had with several people the Sigma is not reliable. I was going to purchase a Sigma for my wife, but instead I bought myself the Sig 220 and gave my wife the Sig Pro. I am in no way against the Glock, but you need to shoot a few different weapons and pick the one that works for you that is the most important thing. Check with GT Distributors about the Glock, they have great prices on everything and they have wonderful customer service.

                            I would have to lean towards the Sig. I hate Smith and Wessons but...I have heard nothing but bad things about the Sigma, I know guys that bought thenm and got rid of them within a week.

                              Would never carry Sigma as duty weapon but have one I acquired in a trade a few years back and I like it for off duty etc.
