    Talking I'm LOVING My Sigma!!!

    Just had to share my second timne at the range with this gun. I switched from 180 gr Blazer Brass to Winchester 165 gr and did a lot of dry firing in between. The trigger felt a lot smother and lighter then the first time I took it out a couple of weeks ago. I'm damn impressed with what me and my Sigma did tonight, what ya think?

    (Sigma .40 SW40VE)

    5-7 Yards


    10-15 Yards


    About 20 Yards

    Thumbs up

    You sure are doing a fine job with that .40ve. I have had the same model for about 3yrs now and it's a good shooter. Took awhile for the trigger to come in but I learned to live with it. I use it as HD and sometimes in the truck. One other thing the price wasn't bad and I got a knife with it plus two 14rds mags. good luck with yours.

    Thanx! I get 2 extra free clips and a $50 rebate. I hope to get into competition shooting with my Sigma with heavy trigger and all. I like going against the grain and using uncommon things. Hopefully I can get good enough, that's why I like to post up progress of how I'm shooting because I don't really know if I am shooting good, bad, or really good. I know a little bit but like to hear other peoples opinions. This a big improvement since the first time I went to the range, here is a pick of 1 of my targets from the first time:

    4-5 Yards First Time

    I put another 50 rounds through mine this afternoon. I have the 9mm and I really do not see why this gun gets such a bad rap. It's accurate, it's reliable, and it didn't cost a lot. I'm very pleased with mine.

    I picked up a Sigma 9ve a couple of weeks ago myself. So far, it seems just fine. I still have yet to hit the range....too busy.

    My .40 Sigma had such a terrible trigger pull (when new) I became determined to learn to shoot it well, or die trying.

    I loved the ergos - the gun fit my hand perfectly. And it was cheap!

    So, I dry fired it hundreds of times (with snap caps), and fired 300-400 rounds out of it.

    One day, the trigger pull fixed itself!

    Still not a competition pistol, but a damn fine (and inexpensive) defense gun.

    Just traded for a 40ve today I love the balance and the compact size of it.

    Looks like the Sigma is finally getting some respect on a lot of forums lately, compared to about a year ago. I guess a lot of people took advantage of the sweet rebates and now we have people posting opinions that have actually shot the gun. I just wish they made a compact version for easier concealed carry.

    I'm just 5.9 and it fits me just right unlike a full sized 1911.

    It's not bad, but I'm 6'4" and a lot of my shirts are too short. I don't like IWB carry so I use a Serpa. It keeps it pretty high up, but my shirts still don't always cover well. Not too big a deal here in VA, as open carry is legal. But I'd still like a reliable, affordable S&W to compete with the Glock 26. Until then I've just been trying to find longer shirts. I guess I need to shop at Tall & Fat to find something that fits better.

    It's been a very good week for me. I mailed out my ccw application. Now have to wait 45 days to pick up. And ordered my sigma sw40ve. Thanks to all the positive post here. I have been lurking here for about 3 months and this is my first post. Love this forum!

    Yep that is what I tell my students at the HS who are 6.3 + get extra tall shirt so they stay tucked in and you keep in dress code.

    you know what would be great? a compact sigma. no, not like that crappy little .380 that was made way back, i mean a compact version of the 9VE and 40VE. i'd buy one without thinking about it.

    Question My sigma 40 kicks like a mule

    I shot almost 50 rounds through it and after always having a steel gun I found the recoil of the Sigma to be sharp.

    I was using Speer 180 FMJ Lawman

    Very light gun and a pretty hot load make for a bit of a kick. You get used to it quickly. I highly recommend a Hogue Handall overwrap grip for less than $10. It will help with recoil control and give a dampening effect to the smacking your hand takes between the thumb and index finger. Look at the pics of my gun in the Sigma Owners Step In thread.

    I've put about 250 rds through mine and love it, once I got used to the pull anyway. I too wish they made a compact version as this is too large for a cc but it is perfect for a hd or truck gun.
