Ordered by electronic check Sunday morning Oct. 27th and the gun delivered to the shop on Nov. 6th.
I ordered the gun knowing its dimensions and weight before I ordered. I ordered it in the black finish and in .40S&W. Upon inspection at the shop I was pleased to see it came with two mags and everything seemed to be in order with no shipping damage or other issues. After a good cleaning and lube at home I was able to really appreciate the fit and finish of this gun. Great job Sig.
On the range I was again highly pleased with how this gun handles. Having average sized hands, it fits my hand perfectly. The controls are easy to get to and smooth to operate. The trigger is very good for a DA/SA and will smooth up even more with use. The contrast sights are metal and definitely workable for a carry piece. I like the horizontal grooves in the frontstrap as they negate any feeling of the gun creeping up in the hand during firing. Grip texture only adds to a great feel.
Loading the mags is easy and non-eventful. Typical well-made Sig quality with a nice, flat black finish to them. Firing DA and SA I find the trigger again to be very nice with a good, clean break for a new gun. During firing I am extremely pleased to say that this gun handles the snappy .40 round like a mild 9mm target round. I attribute that to it's heft and solid fit in the hand. It actually felt like I was shooting a 9 and not a .40. Accuracy was very good, just as I've read in other reviews.
In short, I love everything about this gun and if you want a good, solid carry or range gun with the heft to handle the snappy .40 or .357 Sig round, this one is it. Highly recommended.
