    I have a S&W 22A that I shoot really well. I know it comes from the fact it has no recoil and that I have thousands + rounds through it. I am wondering if there is a centerfire that would feel the same such as grip angle maybe even trigger feel etc. .I shoot it better than any gun I own with my S&W Model 13 K frame coming in second.

    The grip of the S&W Sigma looks very similar. I own neither, but have handled the Sigma many times. It is a comfortable grip. I have no experience with the S&W 22A.

    My 22A points very naturally for me. Another gun that points very very naturally is my Kahr K40. I can't say they have the same grip angle because I haven't measured, but they are both very natural in my hands.

    I almost wonder if its grip angle or the fact that its heavy and has so little recoil. I just realized the two guns I shoot the best are also the heaviest.

    Many of times you will shoot the heavier guns bettter. With the lighter guns are you shooting off to the lift or right and down? I ask as I notice many shooter tend to push their lighter guns in order to overcome muzzle flip. Its a bad habbit many people get into over just locking their wirst tighter. With a heaver gun they dont feel the need to do this. I also assume that you shoot your .22 more than any other guns which is the case with most shooters I think, that too will have some effect on it.

    Basically I don't think grip angle has that much to do with it. It depends a lot more on sight picture and trigger control. Remember with all guns the basics are there and the basics are what counts the most, you don't see shooters on top shot saying "I didn't shoot as good cause of the grip angle.".

    Guilty guilty guilty. First step is admiting I have a problem. I have always focused on guns to carry. I thought that meant light and small. Doesn't make a flip if I'm not accurate. Think I have had an ah ha moment

    I'd refine it even further to the defining factor in accurate shooting is trigger control.

    The important factor in accurate repeat shots is a grip with even pressure...neither pushing nor pulling.

    It has been a while since I've handled a S&W 22A, but I remember the grip very similar to their M41...a very similar feel can be found on their current production M&P9
