I have been wanting to get this family photo for a while!!
This is the senior member (Granddad) - the Sigma 357Sig! Not very many of these were produced. I have never heard an authoritative statement on the exact number but (internet) rumor says maybe around 300: (

Here is the full size M&P 357Sig(Dad) - it has no lock but the magazine safety and night sights: (

And here is the M&P compact 357Sig (Son) - with manual thumb safety (

The family photo with DoubleTap, Grizzly Cartridge Company and Underwood Ammunition included! (

Never knew about the sigmas...learn something new every day I guess :)

Hi there.
Which has the most recoil or muzzle flip, the full sized M&P or the Compact?

I'm quite comfortable with the soft recoil of the Compact, but never shot
a M&P357 before.

One might think the extra length of barrel and slide might make for more recoil.

I like Commanders over Government models because of this.

Funny thing.... I have never had them out together before. I guess I will have to do that... and shoot the same load to get a fair comparison. Things to do...things to do...:cool:

What are your carry and practice loads for each gun?

Does your SIGMA like the DT ammo?

As you might gather from other threads, I try a lot of different stuff!! My likes in practice ammo these days lean to Atlanta Arms & Ammo, Underwood Ammunition, Parabellum Research...of course Lawman is always good plus others.
Right now I am carrying Triton - 115g but since they don't make it anymore I think I will opt for LE Gold Dot or Ranger Bonded!!

My Sigma is not quite a wall hanger but gets shot very little. Although it looks pretty ergonomic, it is a slick little devil to hold on to with full power loads...just practice rounds for it on rare occasions...
