glock gurus...

have been telling me that the s&w sigma is a carbon copy of the glock
now i need to know just how far this is true.
looking for a NON-TRITIUM set of fiber optic sights for a s&w 40F and no one makes them apparently, just the tritium f-o
looking at some glocks in the case at a show saturday they APPEAR to use the same dovetail/post, but does anyone here know for sure if they will work?
plain f-o sights for glock seem to be in every makers catalog

No they will not work. Here's an Idea, get rid of the Sigma and get a Glock. You will be much better served.

Re: glock gurus...

I have to agree - folks show up at matches with Sigmas from time to time - even if they run reliably the bad trigger hurts the performance. Perhaps keep the Sigma as a backup house gun but get a Glock or XD or even M&P - you will be better served.

Glock, XD or M&P - all similar and maybe better guns than what you have. Sorrry I realise that isn't much help. And no the sights aren't the same and it isn't a carbon copy. Close enough that Glock thought it warrented a law suit though .

Glock won the lawsuit and got some license fees.

Re: glock gurus...

Glock sights should not fit on the Sigma.

I have heard from industry sources that the Sigma has had many of its bugs worked out, and is being sold in droves overseas. However, I agree with Dane - the Glock, XD, or an M&P all three are likely a better choice.

If I owned a Sigma, I would send it to WMI for their ultimate Sigma job(landfill filler).

Glock works, my M&P appears to work. Can't say a word about XD, never shot one.

When the fat lady sings, the opera is about over. When Dane Burns posts, the thread is over.

Lessen of course, if Wild Bill wants to share some of his with and wisdom with us.

If I didn't shoot a 1911 I would probably be shootin' an XDM in 40cal , if I didn't have a 1911 Commander for a carry pistol I'd probably go with a CZ 75 first choice , Springer XDM second choice , since the XDM came out I've seen quite a few run in USPSA matches , all I've seen are reliable and I've seen some with safe two pound trigger pulls

I had a sigma. Actually 2. 1 in 9 and 1 in 40. HAD is the operative word. I opened 'em up and slickened up the ENTIRE inside of 'em to try and sweeten the deal. They're just close enough to a GLOCK to make you wish it were one. They're literally almost IDENTICAL! Almost.Close enuff to tempt you, different enuff to pi** you off.
