    The trigger pull is a little long but it's a Damn good gun. Like I've said before it's no M&P but for the price you can't beat it.

    I've got the SW9VE and I love it. It points well and I shoot well with it and it is probably the bargain of the century. It does have a heavy trigger pull and that is off-putting to some. It's not a target pistol, but you can do well with it if you focus on the fundamentals. It can definitely hit a home invader at 25 feet.

    I have a SigP225, P228, and SigPro2022, plus a couple of Kahrs and KelTecs for warm weather carry. When I go to the range, no matter what other pistols I put in my bag, the Sigma is always there. When I go out with a jacket, 9 times out of 10, the Sigma is in my holster. Light, accurate, and 500+ rounds w/o one problem - what's not to like? I also got a trigger job from Frank, and now it's much better.

    I don't think you can spend a better $249!!

    I also am looking to buy the SW40VE but am trying to stay around $300, the price just went up to $339 where i was planning on buying it at Budsgunshop.com. It would be my primary home defense gun.

    It was previously $299 + $50 MIR or 2 free clips, now its the $339 with 10 round mag instead of the 15 that it just was.

    Is it still the same gun it was when it came out a while back or is it getting any better or worse?

    I haven't heard a bad thing about this gun really unless you use cheap ammo, so i would like to hear a bit more about it before i spend $300+ that i can't just plop down more than once.

    I was at my pawn shop again today, they carry the S&W 40VE for $359.99 and its new and eligible for the $50 MIR as well. It might be easier to get it there if buds is going to charge $339 for it, because its not worth $20 to drive to Lexington since thats about what it would cost me for gas.

    The man at the pawn shop did let me in on something that i had not heard before and i thought it was interesting.

    He told me that the S&W Sigma Series like the 40VE and the Glock 17 are very similar, which i already knew, but he also went on to add that S&W and Glock settled for an undisclosed amount of money out of court due to the Sigma series being a carbon copy of the Glock 17. He showed me side by side and the parts are nearly interchangeable by the looks of the inside of the gun.

    The only difference is the patent on the trigger which S&W couldn't have copied. Glock has a special trigger that can't be fired with a bullet in the chamber if you dropped your gun off the roof or something, but the Sigma just uses a heavy trigger to combat that issue.

    I just thought it was very interesting. I held the gun a lot and it feels even better than before after getting a little more used to it. I will probably get a rubber slip on grip for it to have that secure in hand feel i am looking for.

    Don't think i can find anything better for the price, i keep hearing nothing but good things about this guns accuracy, reliability and its functionality.

    I used to own a Glock 19 and a 40ve and had once pout the wrong slide on the wrong weapon. It fit like it was supposed to. Pretty freaky.

    The Sigma pistols are well worth the money, maybe more. I have yet to shoot one and have it not shooting well. And they'll eat about anything.

    I have both the 9 and 40 and have been very satisfied with the performance of both. Heavy trigger pull, ya get used to it.

    40ve

    Hi all, I'm a new guy here and talking about the s&w 40ve. I just baught this as my first hand gun. yes the trigger pull is some what stiff to say. I had had it out once and put 150 UMC rounds through it and it ate every one no issue. shoots great fits my hand good and sights good. In california I did sorry to say paid 409.00 for it some say maybe too much but if its what you like who cares. I bought it for protection. I really don't think the trigger pull be an issue. for the price a great gun. I looked at h&k and glock . point is if you have to point it at a bad guy and god for bid have to empty it in some one. the out come is the same

Since I know nothing about Smith pistols nor their "issues" I figured I'd start here.

    Thanks for the info - Buckeye
    I have carried a .40 SVE for over a year and love it. It goes bang everytime I pull the trigger, no matter the brand of ammo. My trigger pull was heavy when I first got the gun, but I sent in for warranty work. They replaced some springs, took out other springs and it tranformed in a perfect gun, all at no cost.

    I have a Sigma 40VE and thought the trigger pull was to hard. This is covered under warranty. Find you nearest warranty service center and they will reduce the trigger pull for free.

    The Glock trigger makes it worth more than the Sigma, though how much more is a matter of opinion.

    I have fired the Sigma, and I could eventually learn to overcome the really crappy trigger. But, I would rather pay the extra money for the Glock, if I had it to pay. When you consider how much you are going to spend on ammo, if you practice properly, it's not that much.

    I bought the SW40VE Allied Forces model last year and love it. I was a little concerned at first with no visible exterior safety on the weapon, never having owned a DAO before, but after firing a couple hundred rounds through it I am completely comfortable with the DAO trigger mechanism. The heavy trigger and long draw are not a concern and I like the feel of the ergonomically designed grip and the light weight of this gun. It was dead on accurate out of the box and I have not experienced any problems with it so far. It came with (2) 13 + 1 mags with it. By the time I bought a holster and ammo for it I had a total of 420 bucks in the whole thing. You get what you pay for but this pistol is definetly a great value for the money. One of the best guns I have for the money.
