    I just received my Indiana PPL and My Father in Law bought two 40VE's, one for him, one for me. Between the two of us, we've put close to 800 rounds thru each pistol witout a problem. We shoot WWB and I load Federal Premium Tactical 180 grain for protection.

    This is the first pistol I've actually owned, the first pistol I've shot since 92 and out of the box the first time I shot it, I would have qualified "expert" on the Indiana State Police qualification course.

    Needless to say we're both very happy with the Sigma's. We each got 4 14round mags along with the pistol for around $355 after taxes.

    After reading all the good stuff here about the Sigma I'm thinking about getting one now.....

    I was just about sold on the Taurus Millennium Pro .40 but the Sigma looks nice too and I'm still feeling the 9mm would be the best way to go....

    New here

    Hey guys. I've been looking at the sw40ve for a year or two now and finally had some extra cash so I ordered it today from buds. I read over the forum and it definately made me think I was making the right decision. Thanks for the input. I can't wait to pick it up (hopefully monday or tuesday) while I'm on vacation from work so I can spend some quality time and get aquainted with it. I plan on using it for carry. Can anyone recommend an IWB holster for? I've already ordered a fobus paddle for the hip but I need a recommendation on a concealment holster. Thanks again guys.

    So far 200 rounds through my SW9VE and zero defects......

    I've been shooting cheap 115gr ammo by Remington and American Eagle for a few boxes now and not a hiccup.....

    So far I'm happy I went with it.

    Talking sigma

    Hey guys new to the forum< I own a sigma ve. I love it after i did away with the eight pound trigger pull, and the mile long pull. But I have more than 8000 rounds in mine. Granted I work at a range and shoot every day, But Its my every day carry. I love it never had a malfunction of any kind. I guess that's what you get when you copy a proven gun... G..L..O..C..K... Chew on that a little. great gun

    The Sigma is much cheaper and just as reliable as the G..L..O..C..K.

    Add one more...

    I have a SW9VE and don't have anything to add to the discussion other than to say you can add one more very satisfied owner to the list!

    The only problem now is finding the bullets!

    Happy Shooting!

    I got my Sigma 40VE back in May "08". I have only put about 200-300rds thru it. It has performed flawlessly. I keep it stoked with Hornady XTP 155gr. JHP. After every shooting session I keep the bore clean with Outers Foaming bore cleaner and Synthetec Safe Gunscrubber. I use RemOil on the outside metal framing and Militec1 on slide rails.

    You can replace the striker spring with a Wolff Spring and get a little off the trigger. I did that with one of mine. Actually took a few coils off the new spring as well but I wouldn't recommend that to anyone. It worked great but when you get in there and start cutting on a spring you can't undo it. so it's usually just better to replace the spring. It's really easy and inexpensive to do.

    Do that and a bunch of dry firing/practicing with it and the pull will get better and better. The Wolff spring will reduce by about 1.5-2.25 lb with no modification.

    Called Wolff,the spring people,today to order a couple of springs and asked if the reduced striker spring for the M&P would work in the Sigma..
    Was told yes so I ordered one..It is a bit heaver than the Sigma spring,that one gave me light strikes..Hope it will reduce the trigger pull a bit without the light strikes but one must wonder if the problem was high primers because they went bang in a different gun..I am running the light spring in the M&P and have no problems but would like to change the trigger return spring to see if that would help also..Wonder if the same spring change would help in the Sigma ..Got to find someone to do the spring swap,getting too fumble fingered to try myself..Getting old is no fun !!!

    I purchased my SW40VE about 2 years ago from Cheaper Than Dirt in Fort Worth, Tx for a little under $300.00. The salesman told my wife and I that they were from the police dept. and that they had switched to a different brand for carry. If this is so, being used I have no idea how many rounds were fired w/ this gun. I find it hard to beleave that what the salesman said was true because I got it w/ the case and paperwork along w/ the factory test fire casing in a small envelope. I have put about 500 FLAWLESS rounds thru this gun and the only problem I did have was when I tried to purposely limp wrist and it did not function properly. After that one test I have been very happy to own this piece. I love to hear all the bashing this gun gets from hear-say. I know a lot of people have had their share of problems but I have not......yet.

    Let us know how it feels when you get back. I may have to give Frank a call.

    Boys she breaks now at 5 1/2

    As I told the man on the phone I expect a S&W trigger to feel like one.

    I sent mine back to the factory and the pull is still long and hard but much smoother with a predictable break and no more of the "when in the hell is it going to go bang".

    Can someone please take the slide off thier Sigma and take a picture from the top of the firearm, concentrating on the slide release? I took it to the range again last night, and it's still jamming. If i could get a comparison picture, I'm pretty sure i know what's wrong. I cant seem to find a picture like this on the web. Thanks! Brad!

    I went to the range over spring break and it shot a lot better at 25 yards.
