I took the Sig and NHC out to the range last night. I didn't get to do a whole lot of side by side comparison because i had my nephew and his wife with me. I was entertaining since they were in town.
Anyhow, there were two distinct differences between the two pistols that i could see from putting about 50 rounds through each. I also got to observe my nephew put about 50 rounds through each as well. Accuracy and Malfunctions.
Results: NHC had a tighter grouping for each of us. For me the grouping was marginal at 7 yds. However at 25 yds it was substantial.
At 7 yds i made about 2" groups for 8 rounds with the NHC. With the Sig i was about 3" for 8 rounds at the same distance.
At 25 yds i made about 5" groups for 8 rounds with the NHC. With the Sig i only got 3 rounds in the same 5" group.
What's difference? My guess is the trigger; on the NHC breaks at 3.5 pounds with hardly any movement prior to breaking. The Sig has a millimeter or two of movement before breaking at 5 pounds. The other differences are that the serrations of the Sig are much sharper and deeper and the shape is nearly straight.
So will some trigger work on the Sig make up the difference? I wonder how much some trigger work and some feed ramp polishing would cost from a gunsmith? Which brings me to the other difference between the two pistols.
The Sig unfortunately had 3 failure to feeds while shooting. Two of them happened with my nephews wife shooting and one happened with me. The feed ramp of the Sig looks like it has a brushed finish while the feed ramp of the NHC is polished to a glass mirror finish. It really feels like glass when you touch it. I'm using wilson combat mags in the Sig so i'm guessing the feed ramp has something to do with it.
I really like the Sig so i'm going to either contact Sig about the issues and see if they will do anything about it or look into getting the polishing and trigger work done. People keep telling me that it's barely broken in but i believe that with yesterday included that makes about 500 rounds run through it. I would think that it should be broken in now. I've heard good things about Sig customer service. I'll let you know what i hear back from them.
