John,
If it were me, I would go with the M&P series over the Sigma. It's just a better gun, or so I've heard..

I've owned a Sigma in the past and it was a great gun for me at the time. Having said that, I would go with the M&P. :D

My preference would be for without the mag safety but some people do like that option.

JOHN,

I have not shot the Sigma, I do own a M&P 40c and I really like this gun. After a 200+ rounds I've not had any probs. I shoots fast on target and is comfortable to shoot. The different grip inserts help fit to diffrent sized hands and that is a plus.

John,
I owned the Sigma 9mm for quite awhile. It was very reliable, but the trigger made it very hard for me to consistently count on every shot going where I wanted... It seemed that the first shot was always questionable, which is weird because it is DAO. I have held an M&P .45 full size, and it felt better than the sigma IMO, but have not had the opportunity to shoot one yet.

What would you have to pay in the US for this pistol ?

Actually a friend of mine has bought a new M&P .45 from a large hunting outfitter here in Germany for € 135 ~ $ 200 . It was a sale out price ,normally it is much more expensive.

My agency was one of the ONLY agency that issued the sigma 40 and its a pos compared to the M&P 40,I got to T&E the M&P and would trade my Glock for one if I could get the high cap mags that I left the job with [ NYS= sucks ].Thats my nsho s'all.

Can somebody list up the translations for the acronyms that I keep seeing on these posts.

The one that's driving me crazy right now is "DAO"
Does it mean - Dead A$$ On, or what?
I got IMO & IMHO, but some of these are a pain to try and figure out

as wglide stated, DAO= Double action only, commonly a striker fired pistol such as Glocks, Sigmas, M&P, Springfield XD series. It also refers to a hammer fired gun that can not be manually cocked, such as the S&W 642 and other "centennial" style revolvers.

DAO = double action only,means there is NO way to shoot that pistol in a single action manner at all.Hope that helps ya,we all have to learn SO much that I sometimes forget that I too cannot recall some of the acronyms we all use.

I have both guns. Purchased the sigma 9MM for my wife <wink> and the mp 40C for myself. Out of the box:

1) the 40c is much more accurate
2) trigger pull is nice and clean.
3) Grip feels better
4) mp is a much better designed gun - nice balance and weight

IMO, If it was me, I would go for the mp instead of the sigma...
