My dad bought a Smith and Wesson 9mm Sigma about 14 months ago. He bought it brand new and put it in his safe still in the box and has never fired it, not even once.
Well I was thinking about buying it, so yesterday I go to test it out. I put in the magazine, rack the slide, pull the trigger and…nothing. No click, no nothing. The gun won’t even dry fire. Well I take that back, if you hold the trigger in, and pull the slide back and forth, then it will dry fire. We remove the slide, oil it, and nothing really appears obviously out of place.
I get a call today saying that just after fooling with it some more today, he got it to work, fired 10 rounds through it, but now it’s doing the same.
Now, I know a gun has to be reliable to be worth anything, I know it’s under warranty and we plan to send it in tomorrow, and I know the varying opinions on the quality of the Sigma itself. I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas what could have failed. The gun is basically brand new!
