Recently bought a Sigma series (enhanced). Like it so far but one question? What kind of rail is on this thing? I want to put a laser or light on the equipment rail but I've only been able to find the M4 Tac-Light from Streamlight. Are there no other options? Why would any manufacturer use such a unique rail size?

Patent issues? I dunno, H&K and Walther did the same thing for a while but their latest handguns have weaver type rails. Guess they figured out people don't like buying accessories that only fit on 1 gun.

Perhaps S&W was planning on coming out with their own line of accessories!!!


Just checked.
Yup!!
I was right!!!

So you have to buy overpriced accessories from them.

My FN Forty-Nine uses the same rail as the Sigma's.

Kinda sucks when you want a light for it.

may want to look into Steyr M series rail adapter. doubt it would work on Sigma due to rail slot being long as it is. might be worth a try to contact the company that manufactured the Steyr adapter ask for Sigma adapter.

www.impulsegunbarrels.com dont list it on website but contact info if you really want an adapter. besides them try GG&Gaz look for other accessory manufactures

otherwise your stuck with proprietary accessories.
