    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).

    I've got the SW9VE, it's an economical gun if bought used, got it for 245 dollars. I've really enjoyed it so far, no problems with misfires or ejection hang ups. The only thing is the trigger pull, you have to really adjust your shooting style for it. It's not a big deal but I can see it turning off a few people. It's easy to field strip and clean as well. I'll get some pics up sometime soon. I really want a surefire light/laser for it, they look so good with accessories.

    mini update:

    I've put 300 rounds though my sigma without a cleaning, No FTF or FTE. I'm starting to get used to the trigger and since they smooth out some after 1000 I'm OK with it.. all in all it's a keeper.

    P.S. got my range bag and 2 extra magazines today..

    I looked at a Sigma at Bud's. It felt pretty good, until I tried the trigger. The price was $269. I bought the M&P for $399 instead. The next $300 price range pistol I bought was the Cougar. I just couldn't stomach the Sigma trigger. It would be a great gun with some work, I guess.

    Like it better the more I use it

    I bought a new SW40VE in April. I've got about 500 rounds through it without a single failure of any kind. My groups shrink each time I get it out. I shoot primarily reloads consisting of a Berry's 165gr. flat point bullet on top of 5.2 grains of 700X with a Winchester WSP primer. This load hits right on point of aim (YMMV).

    The trigger is heavy but has gotten better. It's amazing how much smoother my Ruger Security-Six trigger feels in double action after buying the Sigma. My double action shooting with the Ruger has gotten much better after using the Sigma.

    Last week I bought a Houge Hand-all slip on grip for it. It's greatly improved the overall feel of the grip as I've got fairly large hands. I'm waiting to get to the range to see how it feels when fired.

    It's been a good gun. It easily shoots as well as I can. Very good value for the money.

    All the Best,
    D. White

    I own one. I was looking for the .40, but couldn't find one. I'm VERY happy with the 9mm though. Shoots well, fits nice, and is concealable. It's my EDC, for now. I'll probably switch between it and the M&P. Last trip to the range was Thursday. It eats everything I feed it, and is easy to clean. Holsters are plentiful. It's the exact same gun as sold under the Beretta name, for half the price.

    i have owned a sigmv 9ve for about a year, the only ammo issues i have had with the gun has been with golden bear ammo. The casing actually would get stuck in the barrel after firing, i would have to take field strip the gun and pull the spent casing out with a pair of plyers. After this happening twice, i stopped using the golden bear for pactice ammo, and switched to winchester target ammo, haven't had that problem since.

    I'm happy with the gun.

    New Gun

    I just bought the SW40VE and am lovin it. What's better for $300? I wanted a Glock 40 but couldn't afford it. I'm pretty happy with my purchase though and can't wait to buss shots at the range again. Now I want that streamlight TLR-2!!! I'm new to this forum so any suggestions as far as accessories/customizations?

    i bought the 9ve last year, as my first (legally owned) handgun. so far, i've close to 2000 rounds through it, with only 2 jams. i'm pretty sure it was the ammo i used; it was speer gold dots on both occasions. i switched to federals, and no problems since. when i first bought it, i didn't know anything about pistols. i only had certain parameters that i was looking to stay within: it had to be 4" or under, 9mm at the minimum, reliable, hold at least 10 rounds, and cost $600 or under. i looked at some glocks, berettas, cz, taurus, hi point, kel tec, xd, etc. i narrowed it down to the glock 26, taurus millenium pro, and the sigma. the glock grip angle sucked, so out she went. taurus or smith, taurus or smith? the salesman then said that the taurus weren't as reliable as the sigmas, and that their customer service was not too great. he told me the whole sigma story, from the problematic earlier models, to the latest generaton. i decided to buy the sigma. when i did, he told me it was also the cheapest in price, besides the hi point and kel tec. i was a happy camper, and still am. i now own other handguns, but the sigma is still my primary.
