    I went and looked at this gun today, and i liked it for the most part. The grip and light weight was REAL nice. It felt kind of cheap (349):bigthumb: . I was wondering any anyone owned or knew anything about them. I have herd that some have jamming problems, but not sure if that is a weird case or not. Thanks for the info...

    sigmas suck. plain and simple: smith and wesson cannot make a reliable pistol other than its wheelguns, and i wouldn't buy any of those made lately, because smith caved to the fucking anti-gunners and put built-in trigger locks on them. find another pistol besides a sigma.

    a girl im in the academy with has a brand new one. we had to wait for her 6-7 times when it failed to fire. at one point the instructor took the gun away from her and gave her a rental glock :irony:


    get a glock, get a sig, hell get a walther... dont get a sigma

    The Sigma copied the internals from Glock exactly and S&W was sued successfully for their design infringement. Even with copying everything part-for-part they still couldn't get their pistol to run right. It would be funny if it wasn't so sad.

    I have the 9VE, never had a problem with it :hsugh: I guess I got a good one. I still carry it every now and then too. I also have a 5906 duty weapon, no issues, other than the weight.

    Didnt SW prove in court that they had used the design before Glock?

    I've never heard that before. I'm just going off what I've read.

    I would find it VERY surprising that they used the EXACT design Glock developed for the G17 before Glock.

    I heard that from a reputable gun store owner a year or two ago. He said something about SW inventing the system, and Glock stole it and improved it

    You have got to be shitting me. Are you being serious with this?

    The Glock 17 was invented by Gaston Glock and a team of firearm designers between 1980 and 1981. In 1982 it was adopted by the Austrian military. It was imported into the US starting in 1986.

    The Smith & Wesson Sigma was released in 1994. 1994! 1994!!!!!

    While on the subject of designs

    From the February 1997 issue of Combat Handguns "New Walther P99—Best-Ever 9mm?" article by Frank James, a well respected gun author:

    The briefing was given by Horst Wesp, the technical leader on the P99 project for Walther. Herr Wesp made the point, however, that the P99 is the result of a collective effort involving many designers and engineers. Wesp, himself, is an Austrian and formerly worked for Steyr and Glock before joining Walther to develop this new self-defense pistol.

    Incidentally, the grip was designed by an Italian, Cesare Morini, renowned for his grips made for Olympic shooters.

    According to the article, Roy Melcher, an Interarms engineer, also cooperated with Walther on the design.

    Horst Wesp has since retired from Carl Walther. One of the principle designers of the P99 is still at Carl Walther as the head of design for service pistols.

    Does your reputable gun store owner have any other interesting 'facts' he would like to share?

    He said something about that S&W had invented the system a long time before they ever used it on anything, so I dunno. He wanted to sell me a sigma instead of the glock i wanted, so maybe hes off his rocker. he does have one leg though...

    Congrats.

    I carry a Glock 19 and am very happy with it. I think it is the best concealed carry, self defense pistol currently made.

    If you don't mind me asking what state do you live in?
