That P345 is a bad boy ! We just bought one too ! Never thought she'd want a 45, let alone half to tell her it's time to go home and drag her away from the range kicking and screaming !! Now she's hooked and wants a different gun evry time we go in the store ! Guess I finally picked the right girl !

Both are nice guns. The first version of that S&W was a little troublesome, but the the newer ones like yours are bullet proof. My son had one for a while it it shot very well.

Thanks for the comments guys. I would have to agree that the S&W is a nice gun. I m contemplating getting a .40

Nice guns but i never had much luck with the sigma. Mine was a first generation though and from what i understand the current ones are top notch.
Just wish all gun makers would standardize on the accessory rails they put on handguns. The smith will require a different tac light/rail accessories than the ruger would use due to different rails.

How is one to know if they have the older one or a newer one.. I have not had any issues out of mine other than cheap ammo jamming in the pipe. Just curious what to look for.

Mine was an early production in 40. The biggest visable telltale difference between today's models and my old one back then is the presence of a loaded chamber indicator ("viewing hole"). That feature was absent in mine. As i also understand it, today's sigmas have other design improvements such as a strengthened frame, lower cut ejection port.
