    Thumbs up Sigma owners

    How many Sigma owners out there? I bought a SW40VE in March of this year for $299 plus tax.I have well over 1200 rounds thru it. If you don't like a revolver style trigger this gun is not for you.My trigger has a "gritty" feeling but S&W said they will take care of that.Other then that,I like it very much and will never get rid of it.

    that was my first simi auto. trigger kinda sucks, but other than that and (for me)not the greatest accuracy, not a bad gun at all. mine never jammed (trust me, i tried to make it. they are pretty good guns. deffinitly not a sig, fairly close to a glock, and leaps and bounds better than a hi-point.

    I traded my Ruger P90 .45 cal for a brand new SW40VE, flipped that and bought the S&W BG380. Already had a Glock 23 which is a much better .40 cal in my opinion.

    I got no complaints about my 9VE. It goes bang everytime. I polished the moving parts on the trigger and it is just as smooth and no more heavier than any of my DA revolvers.

    For the money, they have got to be in the "best buy" catagory as far as I am concerned.

    I bought a sigma when they first came out in the 1990's and it was an alloy piece of crap. It did shoot however and accuracy was awful. I can't speak for newer sigma's. Since that first experience with one I haven't bought s&w since. I stick with sig and glock. I hope your new one is much better.

    I had a 9mm Sigma for awhile. I had no problems with it. My nephew liked the gun so I gave him a great deal on it. I bought it used and between us we have probably put 2000 rounds downrange. I have thought about getting another one but I always find something else I like want more.

    I've had my sigma 40VE for a little over 2 years now, It is very reliable although it doesn't get shot much I am keeping it at this point.

    Thumbs up

    I now have over 2500 rounds thru my 40VE.The trigger just keeps getting better.It's funny to see a $300 gun shoot anything you feed it while at the same time seeing Glocks around you having FTF and FTE problems!

    Have had my 40ve allied forces for a couple years now. Accurate and reliable. Probably run 500 rnds through it w/o a misfire or jam. Would like a little lighter trigger but seems to be getting better the more I shoot it. Very affordable gun.

    A good friend of mine bought the 9mm a few years ago but so far he hasn't shot one round through it. It would drive me crazy to keep a firearm around and have no idea how it functions. I've offered to test it with his ammo since I don't own any nines but so far no go.

    I hope it works okay when the zombies come a knockin' at the door.

    I have a lot experiance with hand guns. I have seen an exponential amount of Sigmas experiance problems compared to Glocks. There are many many time more Glocks in the system and I am willing to bet there are many many more problems with Sigmas. Are there some good one. If people aren't lying I guess there are. Do I think it is funny to see a gun have problems no matter the cost or what brand it carries.....no its not funny.

    Is it cool that there is a 300 dollar hand gun that people can own and shoot, yeah it is. Because it works and gets better and is cheap, does that make it a good hand gun or a working hand gun, it all depends I guess.

    I would pay 550 for a Glock before I would pay 300 for a Sigma. I am not a Glock fan persee but I do know and appreciate quality, and I know and aprreciate what makes inexpensive ....inexpensive. I am motivated by quality and unimpressed by lack of cost. I am not one to throw money away to own a brand name on the other hand too me it is throwing money away to own a lesser product simply to meet a lower price point.

    My father in law bought one and hated the 8+ pound trigger so i did some research and found its an easy fix. now he loves it and we go to the range together all the time. I personally like Glock better but for the money the sigma is a great gun.

    i bought my 40ve based off of price. and the more i shoot it the more i love it. you will start feeling the trigger pull get easier after about 250 rounds. i recommend getting dummy rounds and dry fire it, also spend some time loading in the clip to get springs broke in. i will never sell my 40ve, i have put about 1200 rounds threw it without a single jam. the trigger isnt bad considering there isnt much of a safety. it will only shoot when i want it too, minimal change of accidental fire!

    I've owned 2 sigma 9's. great guns for the money! when shopping for a sigma, always look to see if S&W has any kind of promotion, rebates, free mags or such. I got 2 free mags with one of the sigmas I purchased.
