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

This cartridge was developed as a joint venture between Winchester and Smith & Wesson. It was an effort to to create a cartridge with the same power as the 10mm Norma round that the FBI had just started using, but in a shorter case. The shorter cartridge would facilitate accuracy and allow use of a smaller, more comfortable grip frame. The .40 S&W has become the cartridge of choice for many law enforcement agencies in the United States.
