    No longer soon to be Sigma owner!

    9mm Allied Forces 16rd to be exact. Just ordered it and hope to have it early next week. It was not originally on my list - see other threads/posts here and here. I kept researching and even after reading about "bad triggers" I decided that the positive comments about all else and the price w/ rebate offer was the way to go. If the trigger turns out as bad as some say, I am confident that S&W will take care of it.

    looking forward to a range report.....

    i've been looking hard at the sigma line myself. The weapon appears to be solid enough, Leather options are good.

    I'm not sure when the first outing will be as I have not pulled a trigger on anything in more than a five years (probably closer to ten!). You can be sure that I will post up whenever the first round is let fly.

    Welcome from North Central Texas

    Congratulations

    I like my 40VE after the smoothing of the trigger.

    Thanks Don. It was partly your explanation of S&W's handling of the trigger "issue" that swayed me to take the chance. I'm confident.

    S&W will do a polish job for you if you are not inclined to do it yourself.

    I just got the 40cal version, first handgun I've owned. I really like it, fits my hand well, nice feel. Being my first handgun, I feel relatively safe with it being a double-action every shot so it's not going to go off accidently very easily. Some hardcore enthusiasts bash it for this reason or that but I have no complaints. I was unaware of any trigger issues until I read of them on here, mine is fine.

    They bash it because it's too much like a Glock but it's a lot cheaper I've owned a lot of weapons in my time. And I sold my G19 when I got that 40VE. The trigger is a little different but with a little time and TLC you can get it to be very smooth and take a little off the pull if wanted.

    The one thing I will say is it's easier with a Glock to know when the striker is going to release. You can feel a slight click just before in a Glock. Withe Sigma it's more of a you have to know the feel because it's going to come back and feel exactly the same until it breaks and releases the striker. It's not enough of a difference to get me to spend the money on a Glock over the Sigma though, if I was inclined to buy another striker fired weapon it would probably be another Sigma.

    At one time I still had my G19 and the 40VE. While cleaning both weapons I had put the slide of the Sigma on the Glock frame and it fit! Actually clicked into place. I was pretty surprised. They are that much alike. Glock had jumped Smith pretty hard over that in the beginning so Smith changed the trigger a little and re released it for the second and third generations. The third being some of the best they have made to date.

    I've read your posts about the trigger massage you've done DevilsJohnson, in the "Sigma 40 Trigger job" thread. Your comments also helped me toward my decision to buy. I am plenty capable of doing the work but will probably have S&W's people do it if it ends up as bad as some describe. I have plenty of other projects to do around the house! I won't decide until a few hundred rounds go down the pipe though.

    So here's an update from earlier today. Took my 15yr old daughter out shooting. She's never fired a gun before. Of 18 shots, 14 hit the paper, 4 of those in the target including 1 bullseye. This was at 14 and 21 feet. She was still a bit nervous of it but did quite well for a 1st timer. Was very proud of her. I pumped off a full mag of 15, one hit outside the target but still on the paper, 7 in the black, 7 in the white. I'm basically a beginner as well, not really having shot much since I was a teenager. So overall, I'm very happy with my Sigma. Next purchase is probably another one for my wife. Then one for my daughter.

    I knew about the Glock imitation problems that S&W got into. One guy I was talking to even called it a "Schlock". But no regrets and the price is right. Not that I wouldn't mind owning a Glock later but for now, I'm a happy camper.

    Happy shooting!

    Took my Sigma 40 VE to the range today and enjoyed shooting it.

    Frank at S&W did a great job of smoothing the trigger for me.

    did

    I would not have made it to the range today but I got my hopes up when I got the email this morning. UPS had the scheduled delivery as Jan 4 but had already been updated to today by the time they sent me the tracking info. But somewhere along the line they got tired I guess and it is stuck at the local distribution center for who knows how long. It's been there since 6:30 this morning and is all of 30 minutes from the dealer. So much for the 2 day Blue label service!

    me and a few friends went to the range the other day and my one buddy let me shoot his .40 sigma and i gotta tell you for the price its a good way to go. the gun was accurate. everywhere i aimed thats where the bullet hit. i loved how it fit in my hand and the recoil wasn't bad at all. the only thing i didnt like was the trigger, but as said before you can get that taken care of. but over all definitely a good choice. later down the road when i get some extra cash im going to get one and just immediately get the trigger taken care of. let us know how you feel about it after the range.

    Alright, might as well expand the conversation here whilst I WAIT (thanks again UPS). Anyone have experience with this laser?

    http://www.themachinistscrib.com/las...sw40ve-sw.html

    Not really looking to get one but I was just cruising around looking at what accessories are available for Sigmas. It appears to be the only laser that doesn't require an adapter that then drops the laser almost to the magazine floor (slight exaggeration).
