i use to own one their very fun guns to shoot BUT their not the best to carry for defense becose they can not handle defensive ammo but i did put about 2500 rounds last year i did treaded for fnp_9
Those Sigmas are great shooters especially for the money. The triggers are the only thing people get down on.
I picked up an all black 9VE as a "filler" on a trade so I don't have much invested in it. I actually like the way it fits my hand so I decided to see if I could do something about the awful trigger - yes it's awful.
The first thing I found is the contact surfaces on the sear were very rough, especially where the sear rides along the plastic ramp to force it down as the trigger is pulled. A little polishing (a lot actually) removed 98% of the "roughness" in the trigger pull. Next, I removed the little pigtail spring at the bottom of the assembly. As far as I can tell this is there just to increase the pull weight - maybe to satisfy the lawyers.
The result is a trigger pull that is light years better than what it came with from the factory. It will never be a 1911, a Glock, or an XD - but at least it doesn't tire out my trigger finger anymore. Just a quick disclaimer folks, if I had ruined this gun I'd have taken a bandsaw to it as I have many others. I just wanted to see if I could make this gun a usable tool...
I traded for a Sigma 40 ve back in May and got a link for the special S&W was running for the free magazines with the Purchase of a Sigma pistol. So I downloaded the rebate form and put in a copy of my Trade papers for the Sigma and sent it in. I figured it was just a little time and 32 cents to see if I could get something. Well after almost 90 days I got 2 brand new 14 round S&W Sigma Magazines from S&W. I am pumped !
At 2 local gun shops that = 's a $100.00!!!!!!!
My 9VE has never failed with anykind of ammo. It just shoots. Took my son out shooting with several handguns today and this was my first five shot group using WWB. The others weren't quite this good, but not too far off. This was somewhere between 5 and 7 yards. My son really shot it well, also and he hasn't held a pistol in 15 years.
I can testify to the Sigmas ability to shoot a good defensive round. I reload and had loaded some pretty hot loads with some somewhat pricey slugs. I was doing tests to see what powders with what slug bla,bla,bla....
I had rounds loaded a little over most defensive loads us non leo people are able to get and I was able to hit a golf ball at 50 yards. Took me three tries but the ball went to flying. I was able to knock 12 gauge hulls consistently at 20 yards. Truth be told the gun seemed really "Glock-Like" and loved the hotter loads more than any avg. target load.
I shot thousands of rounds through that gun and ended up selling it to be able to get another gun I really wanted. And I'm trying to get that Sigma back now.
They stick you in Tennessee as well. $75 for a class, then $115 for CCL application...
I am new to the board I have just purchased a Sigma 40VE. I had one years ago and loved it. I have also purchased the wolff reduced striker spring to make it easier for my step daughter and wife to shoot. However I cannot find anywhere on the net to show me how to replace this spring. Any ideas?
Still loving my Sigma.
I just got a Sigma 40 for $249 and I must say it's well worth it.
I can feed M&P 40 any brand of ammo with no problems and I've read that the Sigmas are a little finicky. What's the best brand for a Sigma .40 ?
I've had zero FTF or FTE's with this gun, it eats any ammo I feed it.
For target I use Aguila 180g FMJ, and on duty I use Federal HST 155g HP, and buy them both from ammunitiontogo
