About the Gun

The Sigma series is Smith & Wesson's first endeavor into polymer framed pistols. This striker fired model, designed for simplicity and economy, was strikingly similar to the Glock. So much so, that law suits and cash settlements ensued between the companies, ultimately allowing Smith & Wesson to continue producing the Sigma series.

About the Cartridge

Designed by John Browning and introduced by Fabrique Nationale of Belgium, this cartridge has achieved world-wide acceptance and has even been adopted as the standard pistol cartridge by several governments. One reason for the round's success is that it is the largest practical cartridge that can be easily adapted to small automatic pocket pistols. Ballistics fall far short of even the 9mm Luger, but still prove adequate for most self-defense situations. The round has established quite a niche position in this role, often being chosen over more traditional small calibers such as the .25 and .32 Autos.
