Yes, let that sink in, I went and spent hard earned money, to purchase a Sigma and not just any Sigma. But the worse of the worst. So, why did I want to purchase such a hideous thing? Because I have a strange fascination with oddball flops from the 80s and 90s. I have a pretty big collection of firearms, going after the oddities and commercial flops fun (and cheap). The Sigma is a bad pistol, but the story behind it is exciting. S&W, once the king of the LE market lost market share to an Austrian upstart, Gaston Glock and his plastic fantastic. Big Blue tried to beat GLOCK with everything and anything. We all remember S&W and the gun a month. They tried everything under the sun with their 3rd Generation Automatics and Revolvers. It all failed and the end result was that S&W copied GLOCK and tried to beat them at their own game and horribly crashed and burned doing it. That's why I wanted this clunker, because it honestly is fun to have for that reason. It is like stepping into a time machine and going back to 1994, hearing to grunge on the radio, reading gun reviews on gun rags, and listening to small talk from gun ship commandos telling war stories about being Green Beret CIA SEALs that operated in Vietnam when they were 17 years old.
