    I've got a 9VE and I've been shooting 115 gr Win. Target/Range Ammo. I had one jam the first time i shot the gun, but I've fired about 700 rounds through it since without a problem. I love shooting this thing..I'm impressing myself grouping shots on target

    It has been said that the Sigma is S&W's best seller..That means that there are a lot of happy owners out there that don't go to the forums,maybe they are not aware of these places on the internet..At times it seems as though people come to these forums to complain about things not to praise them..
    If the Sigma was so bad one would think that there would be many used ones for sale,I have seen very few of them..
    On the excessive trigger pull that all seem to mention,it is that way because of a ruling by the AG who controls what can be sold in this great state of Mass...He now She says a pistol must have a 10lb trigger pull..Don't know how the ruling is applied because the S&W 1911 supposedly comes with a good pull,but I have seen quite a few of used models of this gun for sale..
    I guess I lost track of where I was going when I started so all I can say now is I like my Sigma and am going to keep it and use it often..

    I have the 9MM and have never had a failure of any kind. The trigger is definitely getting better with use. Don't know of anything not to like about them.

    I bought a Sigma at the same time I bought my Glock 23 (2nd Gen). I never liked the trigger and sold it a few years later. Still have the Glock.

    My First

    I purchased my SW9VE three months ago. It was my first purchase, so the whole issue of a stiff trigger really was new to me. The more I shoot, the better I get, and the better the trigger feels. I'm glad to see this gun getting some positive feedback.

    Academy price lowered....

    I was at Academy a couple of days ago and noticed the Sigma's had been reduced to $299.00. I bought mine from Academy in March of 2006 for $318.00. The salesman said the price was reduced because they were discontinuing them. Is S & W discontinuing them or Academy? Very unusual for Academy since they always seem to have the same guns in their display counter every time I go there.
    If you want a Sigma, now would be a good time to get one. The gun shows are probably still cheaper though.

    I don't own a SIGMA, but I just got back from the range, where I shot a few hundred rounds through one. I loved the frame/grip, ugly as a one legged dog, but it fit my hand way better then the GLOCK (which I like the feel of) and even a little bit better then an M1911.

    But the trigger was nowhere near as good as the GLOCK's...

    Just made my purchase of a 9VE (2/4/07) from a local Academy here (Spring/Woodlands, Texas)....great gun so far. Still doing alot of dry fire and getting some target practice in as well.

    Sw40ve

    Just got my SW40VE today, its my first handgun and I bought Remington UMC centerfire cartridges; I was wondering if anyone had tryed these metal case bullets and if so, how well they performed. I've read good things about the winchester cartridges and I was wondering if buying the Remington was a poor choice.

    Assuming there is not a factory problem with the ammo ( that is rare ) and the gun is in good condition, the Sigma series is known for eating up just about any kind of ammo.

    I just picked up a 40ve and hope to break in the trigger before my range day on Monday. The trigger doesn't seem to bad so far.

    I'm also a proud owner of the new Sigma 9mm!

    I read a lot of positive reviews on the gun before I actually saw one in person. To me it just seemed to fit my hand better than the Glock that I compared it to (not to mention that it was almost $200 cheaper too!).

    I only shot a few rounds through it the day that I bought it, but it seemed to perform smoothly. The trigger pull did seem a little heavy, but I think that I'll get used to it over time.

    Overall it seems like a great value, especially when you include the free tactical flashlight and the rebate for the two extra 16 shot clips! Not bad at all...

    Was that from where you purchased the pistol or is it a rebate from somewhere else.
    I know of the free magazines and the free range bag. Haven't heard of flashlight though..

    The flashlight was not a rebate. It was actually included with my gun. I believe that it is only available with the all black guns though.

    Here are some pictures:

    Well tsb83, I just traded in my Sigma (flashlight and all) on a Glock 26.

    The Sigma seemed like a great deal, but I just couldn't get used to that trigger.

    I guess I'll put those two free magazines on eBay when they come in (or maybe try to trade for some Glock mags).
