Well I bought a Smith and Wesson Sigma SW40V today at Academy Sport & Outdoor.
I took it straight to the range (I didn't even clean it - shame on me)
Well it shot well, my only complaint is a very hard trigger pull.
Absolutely not one problem - I only had 50 shells with me (bought with the gun).
First .40 I've owned, does anyone know the difference between a .45 & a .40?
The hard trigger pull is the only downfall to the gun.If your willing you can fix it tho. I did mine and it made a world of difference. i have shold about 200 rounds through it since doing the mod and no problems at all. here is the link .. hope it helps.. http://www.xdtalk.com/forums/non-xd-...igger-fix.html
The .40 S&W is a high pressure round that uses extra velocity to try and compete with the terminal ballistics of the .45 ACP. Actually, it was developed to be a replacement for the 9mm with law enforcement, and most do use it, now. But recent bullet technology has made the 9mm +P come near to the .40 in most of the important areas, and a lot of people (myself included) prefer it because of the availability of cheaper and softer-shooting practice loads.
The .45 has a big, soft recoil that is not unpleasant for most folks, packs a good wallop, and is actually more pleasant to practice with, in my opinion, than the .40 S&W.
Wish you could.
