I modified the trigger on my Sigma .40 the other day and hadn't had a chance to test it out, so here's me firing a full magazine (14 rounds) through my Smith & Wesson Sigma .40 with the softened trigger job I did. The target is roughly 16 feet away (the big line next to it on the wall marks 15 feet), and I'm just using some cheap range ammo, 165 grain "International" full metal jackets.

Nce shootin', Tex ;)

My best friend has a .40 S&W Sigma and likes it. My daughter had looked at one, but decided on the S&W Military & Police instead.

BTW: I recently took delivery on a SIG Sauer Mk25, a civilian version of the USN SEALs specially coated (in and out) and marked SIG P226. Sweet..

Nice, just checked it out on their website, looks like a very nice pistol. How much did it run you?

9mm AND $1200, I'll pass, maybe if it were a .40 or .45 it would be a bit more palatable

A bit over $850 (dealer in).

Since it's a P226 it can likely use a later model SIG P226 Caliber X-Change kit, but that loses the cool gold anchor and ID tags. P226's can go .22 LR -> 9MM -> .357 SIG -> .40.

The P250's can go .380 (subcompact only) -> 9MM -> .40 -> .357 SIG -> .45 ACP in any of 3 sizes; subcompact, compact or full size.

The SIG Mk25 (civilian version Navy SEAL pistol) with a .40 X-Change kit.

The first 2 were at 15 meters (25 and 10 shots respectively), and after warming up a 20 meter / 50 shot run.

Would have been better but my left hand started aching (had 5 surgeries on it in 2005-2006.) That caused a lot of the flyers.
