    I have one of the very first S&W Polymer grip frame pistols, bought in the '80's new. I have no Idea how to disassemble it as it has no traditional breakdown lever. Is there a secret way? I do see a pin in the side and if using a punch on the pin is the only way, I'll pass....I want it to go back together and work.

    The new M&P's 9MM and Bodyguard .380 are much nicer than this wide body, short grip channel sighted gun. It will shoot fairly straight as a point and shoot weapon, but aimed shots are inconsistent as the channel sight is not as easy as a notch and blade.

    Thanks for any replies

    Is it a Sigma? Never have held one, but from photos it appears to have a little lever that looks just like a Glock. Hold the lever down and pull the trigger. On a verified empty chamber of course. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable on the older plastic S&W guns pipes up.

    Go online to "Smith and Wesson" and look around thier website and you will find "Owner Manual" and then download disassembly instructions for your use.

    Good Shooting
