Yes, Twin Pines has them. The trigger pull is not that good, though. You might want to try the S&W M&P.

I was able to shoot one before, I didn't like the trigger. I heard the new ones had been improved.

+1 with isuzu. I dry fired an M&P before and trigger is a lot better than Sigma. Get the no safety mag disconnect.

Ditto on the M & P. GRip angle is so much better and teh trigger is so much better.

Is this not the SW model that the Glock firm raised some legal issues for having some parts identical with the Glock pistol?

S&W And Glock Settle Suit

The Glock vs. Smith & Wesson lawsuit is history. After nearly three years of legal posturing, S&W has agreed to a multimillion dollar settlement and a slight modification to the Sigma Series Pistols.

To no one's surprise, Glock sued Smith & Wesson in early 1994. claiming "tortious acts, including without limitations, patent infringement, federal unfair competition, common unfair competition and deceptive trade practices."

S&W returned the salvo with "We firmly believe the suit to be totally without merit and will act accordingly."

Glock also sent an ultimatum to its dealers, giving them 15 days to decide on which to ca,y, the Glock or the Sigma. "If your decision is to continue to distribute Smith & Wesson products, your contractual relationship with Glock Inc. will be terminated," read the message.

In the end, Smith and Wesson agreed to "remove the surface located below the sear in the Sigma Series Pistols, which Glock contends is a positive guide means, and Glock has agreed that such a modification would resolve the patent infringement claim."

While no one in an official position is willing to say how much S&W will pay Glock, informed sources put the figure at between $5 and $8 million.

How much do M&P 9mms typically sell in the US? One gunstore (here in Canada) sells them at $800.00. Glock 17s have gone down from $995.00 to $899.00. My brother told me that Glocks sell for around $500+ in the US (and to think the Canadian Dollar is higher than the US Dollar now:upeyes: ).

Wow! A $300.00 difference compared to what they are selling here in Canada. Checked the gunstore, and Glock 17 prices have gone down significantly from $800.00 to $749.00. I like the grip profile and the trigger pull of the M&P. Sight acquisition is also fast.
