    1st review

    I carried the Beretta 92F for years and loved it. I was a Distinguished Expert with that gun. After I left the department I was looking for a new gun and heard many different stories about this one and that one.
    I fired them all, well at least a few of the more popular ones, and found that I shot better with the Sigma then my old 92F. It feels great, is light and very accurate. The trigger pull is a little tight but just takes a little getting used to. It is easy to strip and I have never had a jam. All I can say is I love it and for the price it cant be beat.

    I got this gun 2 weeks ago and have been shooting it ever since. I have noticed the trigger is tight but will be replacing it soon. Other then that it shoots great and hasn't had a stovepipe yet.

    noooooo..... Couldnt wait to get rid of it. unless needed point blank range I would not trust this weapon for self defense. Feel free to comment or ask me questions . There is no comparrison between this and the Glock 22.

    I didn't much care for the look, but it fits my hand well and shoots well. This is actually my wife's favorite gun. Takes down exactly like a Glock (which happens to be MY favorite) but for the price and ease of use, it can't be beat.

    I've owned my S&W SW40VE for about 5 years. It is a well handling and built firearm, and pretty accurate, but I found mine to be a bit picky with ammo. I tried to shoot Remington UMC (cheap target ammo) and had nothing but bad luck with it. The Winchester white box target ammo was a little better, but still had a few FTF problems. The trigger weight is an easy fix, it just takes a spring kit in the trigger mechanism. It fires Speer Lawman ammo flawlessly, and I have had only good luck with my reloads. I went to the Springfield XD 40 as my primary weapon but will hold on to my S&W. (It's fun to shoot)

    Not even a good boat anchor due to the lack of weight. Friend had one press the trigger to the rear all the way to the frame 3 times and failed to fire. I know a retired instructor that found a dead fly in the slide that was causing a fail to fire. Nobody beats Glock for combat tupperware HK is a very close 2nd.

    Simple, No frills fighting gun. Reliable, comfortable to shoot, and it points great. $440 is expensive, but its by far the best gun in its price range. I like it better than Glock because mine will eat my handloads.

    I have owned one for about 4 years and have literally fired thousands of rounds through it without a single jam. Mine is not pick about any ammo I put through it. Fits great in my hand and is very accurate. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    I Bought this firearm in 40F when it first came out about 15 years ago. I carried it for 12 of my now 14 years in law enforcement. This weapon was designed to compete with Glock at the time and S&W had to pay dearly for that. With that said, this is without a doubt the most durable firearm I have ever used. The trigger was tough for awhile but lightened over time. It never miss fired and is forgiving with sub-par ammo. It is easy to clean ( Breaks down just like a glock) and it hates, and I mean HATES alot of oil. Will fire dirty and wet. For the money it is a great first as well as long term duty weapon, especially for those officers that have to buy their own to carry at work without going broke. With the smaller grip it is also excellent for female officers and others with smaller hands. Minimal recoil and you can get every accessory under the sun. I will never get rid of this one and the only reason I don't carry it now is that my dept issued us Glocks and requires us to carry them.

    even though i carry the glock 22 for work i keep the smith next to the bed for home protection.
    i would buy more and when the chance comes around i probably will
    the trigger is not as nice as the glock but i guess you can fix that if ya really dont like it.

    Very accurate and overall good gun for the money. To say the trigger is a little tight is a bit of an understatement. The trigger comes from the factory at 12 pounds and is not adjustable. Compare this to a glock at 5 1/2 ponds or a Smith and Wesson M&P at 6 1/2 pounds. It is very difficult to maintain accuracy with this gun at the range. Because of the heavy trigger pull your hand becomes fatigued very fast (after about fifty rounds i'm all over the place). I consider myself to be a decently big strong guy and a VERY experienced shooter and after fifty rounds i just cannot keep my hand from shaking all over the place. That being said, in a self deffense situation there is no better gun, it is very accurate and chances are you won't need to shoot any more than a couple of rounds at most.

    I just bought this gun 299.99 on sale and a $50 dollar rebate w/ 2 free mags from S&W. I have ran about 500 rounds through so far. I Love it. It is accurate, no jams, stovepipes, etc. it eats any of the range ammo and defense ammo I put through it well. To me it's feels like a Glock just cheaper. It field strips just like a Glock and I could probably change out a few parts for the glock parts and it still function well. And as far as the trigger pull try clean sweeping the trigger instead of waiting for the break and then tell me what you think. Remember. the trigger pull is a little heavier because there is not safety, so if you're thinking about adjusting the trigger and you have your CCW think about this: If you have to defend yourself with deadly Force would you want a prosecuter saying "Oh Yeah and he adjusted the trigger pull to make it easier to kill!!"? GREAT GUN!

    Comfortable and well shooting weapon but has a heavy 8pound trigger pull from the box. After over 3,000 rounds and since owning the weapon since they were first made I haven't had any problems ( jams, misfeeds, stovepipe, etc.) Check out the M&P from Smith and Wesson with a few extra features it is well worth the few extra bucks.

    I am happy with my Sigma DAO ( double action only, ) internal striker fired 40VE.
    I have given this weapon a "4" partly because of it's value.
    I purchased mine during a dealer sale and in addition to the S & W April 2008 factory rebate,
    I walked out the door with this polymer ( a nice way to say "plastic," ) and stainless cap gun for $330.00 with 4 magazines. Such a deal! And it works! But seriously folks, this little guy is accurate, light and feels great in my hand but......the trigger pull is as long as the last day of school in June. I have had wrist surgery ( no; not because of that! ) and after several rounds;
    it is pretty hard for me to pull the trigger but if you need that many rounds to hit what you are aiming at, you are going to need a lot more than just wrist surgery. I did not see a ton of holsters available for the weapon but maybe that is beacuse it is a newer model? I believe so. I ordered a Galco "FLETCH" leather high ride thumb-break which retails for $82.00 and when you spend 25% of what your gun costs on a holster; you know your gun was a good deal. Maybe cheap holsters are bad ideas anyway. A holster needs to work as well as the weapon in that it must fit and secure the weapon properly and let it draw smoothly so I did not have a problem with parting with the 90 dollars after tax. I believe Fobus has several holsters to choose from but I believe I remember Bianchi being sort of weak for pouch pics when it came to the Sigma. Again; I believe the weapon is a newer model so maybe that is why. Happy shooting.

    Ive owned this firearm for a few months now and have shot thousand or so rounds out of it... I am very happy with my purchase!!!! I have researched this weapon and came to find out that people had problems with the older generations of this weapon...This has been phased out with new generations... I recently added a LaserLyte rail laser site.... AWESOME!!!! I got it dialed in in about 5 minutes.. took it to the range and had to make one adjustment.. Other than that pull the gun ... where you point that laser is where it fires... This is made easier by S&W's 18 degree slope to the handle which keeps it inline with your arm and allows quick target accusition... I recently let my girlfriend fire this weapon.. She put about 75 through it and had no problems... Ive double tapped and all out ran the mag out as fast as I could and havent had so much as a hesitation with it.. Over all GREAT GUN GREAT BUY!!!!!!!

    Like many before who have reviewed this weapon... I too own one & paid $349 for mine. I could careless about its looks (picture does it no justice) but, I will say it is fairly accurate & extremely easy to break down. I use mine for personal protection & around the farm target plunking. I never have issues with double feeds or stove pipes. My only issue is the trigger spring is waaay to tight & I will be replacing mine soon. For those in the smei-auto pistol market... if your looking at a Sigma VE or SVE (the SVE's barrel is about an inch longer), be prepared for massive recoil. This little boom stick will bite if not firmly held & handled correctly.

    Even though I own one... the Glock 23 is my solid choice.

    It may be ergonomic and it may be this and that, but the model that I had, I put nearly 200 rounds through, and could not get a consistent pattern. I took out all of the human factors, and the handgun still failed to perform adequately enough for me to trust it as an off duty, concealed carry. Tried it both in the 9mm and the 40 cal, and had the issue with both firearms, with mid grade ammunition.

    Highly inaccurate, top heavy (even when the mag is loaded). I had numerous jams. I had to keep the gun very clean to a void jamming. I did fire about 2700 rounds through this gun, but the more I shot it the less I liked it.

    this is a good weapen for a starter. its small and easy to consile . i own the s&w sw9ve 9mm. its almost like the glock if u compare them the tigers r nt the same other then that u r get the same results and for have the price. i thing i have noticed about both glock 19 9mm and the sigma 9mm is that both weapons jam up with cheap rounds but once i started using the winchester luger round the sigma has nt jammed or misfired clean or dirty for the most part it is a accurate weapon once u brake it in.

    I purchased this gun for a great price. In fact when I got the gun it came with a $50 rebate and 2 extra hi-cap mags. So I now have the gun, case and 4 14rd mags. Put a crap load of rounds through it and no issues. The trigger is weird, but this also acts as a safety for the gun. If you don't like that part, you can just have a gunsmith take care of that for a small fee. Great gun for the price and no issues from my end.

    I carry this as my off-duty weapon and I trust it with my life....plain and simple. The Sigma 40VE is not a range gun and it's definitely not for plinking. This is a straight up self-defense weapon. You hear everyone complain about the heavy trigger pull but, in my opinion, that's one of the outstanding features on this weapon. It has no external safeties so a slightly heavy trigger pull is your buffer between a clean, well aimed shot and an accidental discharge. If your in the middle of a FUBAR sitiuation, the adrenaline is running and you have to pull your weapon, do you really want your finger on a 3.5 pound trigger with SA? In my experience that would be a big no. I want DA with a heavier trigger pull...that way I know my shot is going where I placed it and I'm not going to accidentally let off a round. The time difference between letting off a SA shot and a DA shot is minimal to say the least so it's not really a matter of getting the shot off faster. Trust me, when your in that situation, your not going to feel the trigger pull at all anyways. Frankly, for those people complaining about how heavy the trigger is, you've got to be kidding. Apparently you got spoiled on your 3.5 - 5.0 pound trigger pulls. Yes it's a fully DA weapon for every shot but the average full-grown man should have no problem pulling the trigger without losing his sight picture...even under pressure. Everything else about the weapon is superb. It shoots POA, fit and finish is clean with very small tolerances and break down and cleaning is simple. The 18 degree grip feels great and it's even better with the Hogue grip I have on it. It's a comfortable weapon, conceals easy with the right rig and you can't beat it for the price. I've thrown about 700 rounds through my weapon and I have yet to experience any FTE or FTL's. I got mine for about $319 along with a $30 rebate. If you looking for a sub $400.00 self or home defense weapon...you couldn't ask for a much better weapon.
    Just a little background... In my career, I've carried Glocks, S&W, Sigs and Berettas. I've won the Top Gun award three times and I was an expert marksmen in the Army (Pistols and Rifles). Of all the off-duty weapons I've owned, this one is my favorite.

    Trigger pull is awful. Accuracy is good. Not well suited for on-duty carry. The firing mechanism has several moving parts which could malfunction if even a small amount of dirt was to get into it. I use mine for an in-car backup.

    I currently use the smith and wesson sigma 40ve. I would not recommend this weapon for duty use. It should only be used for a bed side gun. It has a heavy trigger pull, which can cause you to "pull" your weapon to left or right.

    Owned this gun a few months back and had to replace it , not a very accurate weapon in my opinion. Although to the defence of S&W, it is a good fitting gun and not too heavy so it isn't uncomfortable to carry for long periods of time. I also put somewhere between two or three thousand rounds through it without fail or misfire, I wouldn't carry this weapon for self-defence but wouldn't have a problem keeping one for the range.

I would recomend this for the woman shooters because of it's weight and it's easy to shoot.

    Piece of crap. I have several buddiesthat have one and wish that they never bought. They jammed up very easliy, but the 9mm is way worse. You are at least able to get a mag off in the 40 before it jammed up

    I bought both the SW9VE & the SW40VE. Considering the price (under $300 for each with laser), I think it is one of the best bargains on the market. They are very easy to handle, easy to pick up, aim, and shoot. It is fairly accurate, despite the heavy trigger pull.
    I own several Glocks, S&W MP and Beretta pistols. The Sigma series certainly holds its own in comparison.

    It's my opinion that the gun was designed for novice and inexperienced shooters (based on its ease to aim and fire) looking for home protection. The trigger pull was most likely designed for newbies and inexperienced gun owners from accidental discharges.
    However, if you are an experienced shooter, don’t dismiss the Sigma based on price. It is a well manufactured and reliable handgun ideal for personal protection and range use.
    For those who have issues with the heavy trigger, take it to your local gunsmith to get it adjusted to your liking.

    Fires decent and doesn't jam up. Hard trigger pull! Makes you jerk off center every time you fire if you are not use to it! Good for close range and not so well for 50 feet or better.

    I was not impressed with this gun / S & W needs to stick to the way they make guns and not try to get competitive with other brands - this is the gun S7W got sued over by Glock for copy right infractions.

    Has been an OK gun, the feel & weight are very nice. I have run 2500 or so rounds thru it now with out 1 glich. Yet typical to mass produced merchandise, no two are alike. The accuracy is terrible, at least the one I purchased. I have compared the craftsmanship between identical gun's & there was a difference. The tollerances allowed must vary quite alot.
    My humble opinion would suggest, look at something else. While it maybe cheap, placing the bullet where you want is what it is all about.
    It kinda runs like the old Bell helmet adverts, have a $10 head, buy a $10 helmet.

    I just got the pistol yesterday and fired it for the first time. It was much more accurate than the guns I had been using from the range folks. The trigger is very tight but that's because it is the only safety on the gun. I thought it may affect accuracy but I found it to be a plus. This is a very nice weapon at reasonable price and a good carry gun.

    I purchased mine new about 2 months ago. Very nice weapon. Shoots accurate. I am a solid point and shoot individual. On target at 20 yrds. So far I have put 300 rds through it with no issues. I like to (well require) practice from different shooting positions as well as "off" hand and "strong" hand firing. I find the recoil minimal so "off" hand has been about 85% accurate as strong hand. I am working to improve that. I would recommend as a good CC and personal defense weapon. Always remember "Quality Ammo".

    It does what it is supposed to. Heavy trigger pull, dependable. I don't shoot as well with it as other handguns but they pulled me off the line at the academy to help instruct others so I guess I was shooting ok. So far I'm 50/50 as to which shoots better. My sons m&p 40 or my sigma. His trigger pull is almost half of mine. I'm probably near 2,000 rounds but still need more tunning. Will update.

    I have used every handgun imaginable and this is the only I do not recommend! It jams after 3 shots. Sent back 3 times to S&W and it still jams. Poor design and would not use as a carry weapon! Everyone that purchased one traded it in! They offered me $100 at local gun shop, I declined (should have taken it). I will stick to my old service weapon, S&W 457 (.45).

    I had to carry this weapon when I was a campus police officer at WVU. This gun is horrable for user friendliness. Mine would never go to slide lock, and the armour at the Dept could not find night sights for it cause their isnt many acessaries or aftermarket parts for it. So when they did get night sights for the guns. My front sight was JB welded to the gun, and the sight was cocked to the right and gapped of the slide assembly.

    I've had my Sigma 40VE for about a year now. It's a great little gun, except for the trigger pull. Which, I understand why S&W made it that way, but for those of us that aren't as likely to pull it from the holster with a finger on the trigger, it can be annoying. I recently followed the steps found online to "adjust" the springs in the striker assembly, and so far its been a world of difference. Firing it next to a glock 22 with a ported barrel the Sigma loses with a harder kick factor but its more acurate for me. The ported barrel for the Sigma doesnt allow it be carried as easliy though, so I haven't gotten one yet. But all in all, I still miss my Colt 1911 :(

    Affordable and reliable. Why then the 2 star rating? Accuracy is the answer. I bought one of these things brand new and no matter what kind of ammo I ran through it I couldn't get a consistent pattern within 300 rounds. I found out that when these things came out they were a take-off of the Glock 17, 22 and so forth. I have been told that they lost a copyright infringement lawsuit to Glock over this line and were forced to change the design.

    I've been a Glock guy for a long time (still love 'em), but wanted to try something different. I IMMEDIATELY noticed how natural and comfortable this weapon felt upon drawing, aiming, firing, and reholstering. It carrys very comfortably as a sidearm and I find it to be easy to carry concealed as well.
    Love the half-Glock, half-Smith look of it too!
    And the price point is very competitive as well...(I paid $385 for mine, new from my gun dealer).
    It came with a very nice hard-carry case, extra mag and a trigger-lock.

    I can definitely read all the Glock bias out there. Glock I am sure makes a good weapon, but also makes a good purchase price. I have had my Sigma 40 cal. now for about two years. Never had a jam (I think some of these Officers with the jamming issues, need to keep up maintenance on their magazines; makes a difference) My Sigma is comfortable and reliable at a reasonable price. Yes, ammo does make a difference too, don't shoot crap through your weapon.

    This is in fact a very good weapon. I am a Nurse and an NRA Personal Carry Instrutor. I would not recommend this weapon to anyone for concealed carry as the trigger pull is much to tight. I have contacted four different gunsmiths that say the trigger can not be worked. I noticed that "foza" stated that he will be replacing the trigger soon. If you have found a gunsmith that can work this trigger I would really like his address. Thanks

    I have carried many wepons. Taurus PT101, 99 Mellenium 111, Glock 22, 33, 17, Ruger P285, SR9C, Sig Sauger P85, Etc, Colt, Rossi, S&W 40VE, 40GVE and Allied Forces, Springfield XD, Kel-Tec, Caspian Arms, Desert Eagle, Berretta, Walther SP22 and the new Sigma is the best gun by far. It has great balance, weight, accuracy, the finish holds up better than any Glock I ever seen. The trigger pull is great. If you are a shooter then it dont matter how tight or loose the trigger is you just do it. I guess some people just like to find something to complain about. This gun hold a good number of ammo, it fires great, low recoil, and it is very easy to breakdown and clean. Easy to find a good fitting holster for it and its 18 degree handle is great. This gun is everything they said it would be and more. Glock is just winning because they didnt think of the new upgrades first. Everyone always has something to complain about. My gunnery sargent loves this gun and request all of us carry it in sniper situations as backup everywhere we go. We even carry them with the treaded barrell for a silencer and it still fires more true than any other gun I have ever had the pleasure of fireing. My Spotter hit a kill shot from 600 yards with the sw9ve and silences. Believe it or not I was there. These are great guns. Everyone in the Army carries the Berretta but the Marines we use the best. Seprifi. I go back to Afganistan next month and will be taking one of my new sigma's with me. Dont let anyone fool you this gun always has and always will be a number one choice for me. Learn to shot or dont shot at all. The trigger is the least of my worries when I go to use my sidearm and it should be yours too when your life depends on it.

    this gun is an excellent gun. it strips just like a glock. it is very reliable, i have never had a jam with any type of ammo and if you and another person with the same caliber pistol got into a firefight, the one who is the better shooter is going to win, plain and simple. THey all have the same end result, to kill. and this is an accurate, tight grouping gun. the trigger pull is heavier than some other brands, which can be lightened by a different spring installed by a gunsmith, but it shouldn''t be a problem as long as you arent a grandma with arthritic hands

    so you want a polymer frame? you want performance at a low cost? you want a life time warranty? BUY A GLOCK! sigma is one of the cheapest built poly's and it will break.A High Point is built better! Glock offers a LE/MIL purchase program, USE IT and get a better quality pistol for the same money. Smith and Wesson is hands down one of the best builders out there, not this pistol. stick with their revolvers and the M&P line.

    I've heard a lot of reviews of this gun conplain about the long trigger, but this is due to the fact that it comes unequiped with any other safety function. When you grew up shooting double action its like second nature to you. This is a very accurate and reliable gun. I've put about 1,000 rds or so through my and have had one catch in the slide which was my fault for lossening up my stance right before fire. Price is very reasonable too, i got mine new for right around $300 with 2 15 rd clips. Overall i would highly recommend this gun to anyone wanting a reliable, accurate gun. A+++

    Those who trash this gun are either ignorant or are relying on the old reviews of the first generation Smiths. I purchased one of these and I also have a glock 19 and beretta 92, both great guns. The Smith was purchased because of a price point, I picked it up for 325 minus a 50 mail in rebate and Smith sent me an extra mag for free. Three mags and a SS gun that has so far worked well for 275. I put 200 rounds thorugh it and had trouble only with the reloads. To be fair every gun I had seemed to have trouble with the reloads. The gun has not misfired once with factory ammo. As I read reviews of people who own and shoot this gun, not the fakers who say they got ride of one or know a friend of a friend who owns one, love it. I bought it because I sold my Smith 6904. I sold it because it was blue and it was a gun that sees a bit of abuse. I wanted a SS gun that would be main. free. I was going to get a 6906 but opted for this one because of the price point. I had a guy at the gun range ask if I would be interested in a glock 26 in trade, he wanted 150 cash plus the gun for the glock , I told him I did not think so. I have heard those that do not like striker fired guns, but these bozos are nothing more than opiniated Aholes. These are the same small dicks who think they need a dirty harrry gun or its only a toy. So let your kid shoot you with a 22. Little dick opinions should be put in the garbage bin where they belong. Don't let these nay sayers turn you away from this gun. Trigger is a bit stiff but for a DAO I like it. Its not an olympic match gun. Its a trench gun.

    This is an excellent, inexpensive and reliable counterpart to the Glock. my dad has one and it is accurate enough for IDPA shooting as well as having enough power to knock down steel silouettes at 20yrds. Still, I wish they made one in a 45ACP.

    I have had this weapon for about a year and love it. The trigger is a little tough but once you get used to it, it can't be beat. It is actually more accurate than my glock 17. I bought it for off duty carry and wanted something more than the 9mm glock 17. I have found that those that don't like it are usually novice shooters who don't have good trigger skills so they cant handle the heavy trigger. If you are somewhat skilled you will be pleased with the accuracy and the grip angle is very natural. The only drawback is the lack of available accessories, otherwise I would have given it 5 stars. I bought mine on sale for $329 with a mail in coupon for 2 extra mags. Bottom line: a more accurate gun than the glock for several hundred dollars less, but if you are new to shooting handguns or don't get to the range much, it might not be for you.

    I carry the S&W M&P .40 while on duty and also have one for personal use that I have had for 5 yrs and I LOVE it! I also have the Sigma 40VE. Alot of people have said the trigger pull is too heavy but that is mainly for safety reasons. My dept. switched from S&W .357 revolvers 5 yrs ago to the .40, so the heavier trigger wasn't that big a deal on the Sigma. I have the Sigma as an in- car backup weapon. Overall the Sigma has proven to be reliable and accurate on the range, I use Winchester and CCI 140 grain target loads for that and the Winchester Ranger 140 grain JHP on duty. The Sigma is a very comfortable weapon with an ease of sighting targets. The texture of the factory grip can get a little tiring after extended continuous use but this an excellent home and personal defense weapon for the price. I paid $329 new for mine with two 14 rnd mags.

I will agree with everyone else about the trigger pull it is quite stiff but the gun is light weight and accurate I normaly carry my 1911 but was looking for something more compact and lighter this weapon does the job well.The weapon fits my grip very nicely and has little recoil and with it being chambered in 40cal will have great knockdown power. My department requiers me to carry a SIG the S&W 40VE is my off duty weapon and would refer this weapon to all.

    Had one of these. I bought it new in 2006. I may have put 1600 rounds through it. All in all, it was a great gun for the purpose I owned it. It was a primary concealed carry gun. It wasn't extreamly accurate past maybe 15 yards. ( most self defense uses, would probably be within 20 feet) but, it was a very comfortable weapon to aim and fire. It was never holstered, it was always kept in a car door, between the seat, etc etc. However, I noticed that it was becoming more and more picky about ammo, never a failure to fire but sometimes a failure to eject, hence one or two or three shots then a FTE. Out of all the rounds I shot out of it, this happened 6 times. It was mostly with 180 grain FMJ, and heavier hollow points. I can safely say that a hot load like CORBON 135 JHP never ever jammed or FTE. But the lone thought of " it might jam after a couple rounds" caused me to sell it being what I used it for.

    If you like a Glock but don't like the price, this is your pistol. I shoot this weapon at least once a month (50+ rounds) at a minimum. It is clean and comfortable in my hands. No issues other than the trigger pull. I did modify the spring (search on YouTube), super simple job. Trigger pull is almost 5 lbs. Warning: modify at you own risk. Lighter spring means lighter striker against the primer, therefore you could have a misfire. I have not had one misfire in 2000 rounds. Only issue I had was a failure to feed due to bad ammunition. I share my Sigma on the range with my other Combat Arms Instructors. Again, no complaints. Yes, we all like the M-9 and M-11 and more, but this pistol has proven well worth the money. Accuracy is good, but small decrease noted at 25 meters. Good on head and body shots, but not a tight group. Always remember the weapon is only as good as the operator of the trigger. Spend time on the range and be comfortable shooting (and have fun, too).

    Bought my Smith & Wesson sigma from Academy Sports and Outdoors one year ago $300 now $279 I think it is worth every penny of it. This gun shoots very good and is a .40 caliber. I am thinking about going get the 9mm sigma these are good guns. I started out with a .22 caliber revolver. But you can't beat a Smith & Wesson.

    While I've not yet picked up my Sigma 40, I want to comment on one continuing theme I'm seeing here. Strong trigger pull. Ok, it's 12lbs, you should shoot my Sig P225. I measured it's trigger pull (first shot D/A and subsequent ones S/A) and it maxed out at 12lbs and still hadn't fired. Once I get the Sigma I'll stop back and let you all know my feelings on it. I do know it feels good in the hand and the sights come up on target very fast. It's on layaway as being retired I have to do things in moderation. Oh, 1 star only until I can actually fire it

    This is my first handgun purchase. I did my research on this, and for the price, it's about the best you will find for a starter gun.And not empty your wallet, or purse. I also didn't get much practice with it before going to qualifing with it. And let me tell you, I passed with no problems. No FTE, FTF,or FTL's. Aside from the 12lb trigger pull, I think it's a great gun. I am going to get the trigger pull droped to about 8lbs, and try that. Per some expert PD advice. I also carry this as my off duty weapon.But just remember, practice, practice, practice.

    This weapon is outstanding. I have several striker fired weapons and none hold a candle to this one. I have never liked the Glock because it is ugly in my opinion and the only exception to my desire to buy american is Sig.
