Heavy trigger and not very reliable.

I would go for the new S&W SD series, which is an updated Sigma with better trigger and fixed all the bugs. Plus the ergonomic and look of the M&P series.

Or get the the S&W M&P but $$$. I own a M&P .45 FDE with night sight which is double the price of the Sigma in my market.

Bro very heavy trigger. Approx 9 lbs. I thought safety was on when i tried to fire it for the first time. Do check the trigger before buying.
In much lower price range you can buy very reliable and rugged guns like CZ-999 in ~ 45k and Baikal Viking ~ 55k.

The M&P .45 uses 10-rd magazine. The gun is actually a loaner from Smith & Wesson but it's so nice that I want to buy it. I should have a review of it in month or so. The mail order price in the state side is about $700+ USD. The glow-in-the-dark night sight itself is worth $100.

S&W had just released the SD series last month in the US. So, I don't know how long it takes to get to Pakistan.

Trigger is about 6-ish pounds. It comes standard with a very good tritium front sight.

I had shoot it & it shot good. The retail is $530 but I anticipate the street price will be about $450. The Sigma goes for $300.

M&P has knockout looks and good ergonomics, but fieldstripping it is a pain in the rear end.

@shariq the trigger pull in Sigma is aprox 11 lbs and u r right impossible to shoot. I have M&P 9c and its pull is 6.5 lbs but there is a delay in the trigger so the experience is a bit uncomfortable. But the frame looks sweet. I believe that i read somewhere in the thread that u once shot M&P 9 full size at the range of a member a while back?

@abbasdurrani i would agree with others i would avoid Sigma and i believe most are not proper imports. These weapons were mostly imported for across the boarder forces and are substandard guns. There r 2 many options for 110K. Guys is the new SD Series available in Pak yet?

GUNFREAK Sir
Yes i did. Really liked its grip, light weight and fit/finish.

Agree with GunFreak, Shariq sahib and others. S&W Sigma is just not good value for money. It's a failed S&W model which sells dirt cheap in US and even than very few are willing to buy it. Availability across the border was actually an effort to dump Sigma surpluses. In performance, many pistols selling in 40-60 K range are better than Sigma. :)

I agree with Gilani.There is a good reason why even S&W retails them at about 1/2 price of M&P

Sorry Sir for the late reply.
Definitely it was your weapon. Your .357 608 was really loud :)

You got i my friend. Haven't seen you around these days at the range. BTW i bought M&P again, this time 9c subcompact. Then just like that changed my mind had a chance and bought G26 od green. Have put the m&p for sale, lets hope it sells soon. And .357 608 sold it last year, ammon too high so i divorced it.

Hope to see you soon along with Taurus, who is MIA(missing in action) these days.

I wonder if the Sigma would still be in production! :/

No wise choice bro, in S/W, only revolvers should catch some attention, sadly. :(

Few days back I saw a S&W Sigma at Buksh Elahi, Lahore. The weapon was obviously used, but the guys at the shop kept insisting that the wear and tear is from routine carry (Yeah right). Anyway, the demand was 125k (Which is ridiculous by even Buksh Elahi standards) and then I checked its trigger. Boy, that was one stiff son of a gun!

I could have hiked to Nepal while waiting for it to break. :rolleyes:
