    I picked up the Sigma 40 yesterday, and shot it today...I am very glad that I went with this gun. Obviously I can't do a side x side test (yet) with the Glock, but I can tell you that it shoots like I thought that it should. At 30' I was able to consistently group under 4.5"-5.0", off hand. Sometimes better than that. I don't think that is too bad for a new gun (new caliber too) the first time out. 175 rounds and no failures of any kind! That's nice to see from a new gun also. As for the trigger, it is long, but I don't think that it is too heavy. It will just take some getting used to (like any gun/trigger) as far as length of pull and point of let-off. I did find that my point of impact sometimes changed, but the group stayed tight. One round of 5 would group on the bull, the next might group as nicely at 4 o'clock just off the rings. I'm sure it was something that I was doing wrong as it was intermittent. Anyway, I will continue to practice with it and things should only get better. I did do some water/expansion testing too. One .40 PDX1 went into the 4th gallon jug, opened up to just a hair under 3/4" and it opened to a perfect mushroom...very symmetrical. I also shot a .45 Golden Saber (opened to just over 3/4") a 9mm GS (2hairs under 3/4") and a .380 Critical Defense at 1/2". All very nicely shaped. It was pretty cool and I got a bit wet shooting at 15'.

    I have a 40ve and a 9ve. They are very comfortable for carry.
    I agree about the grip. I use a Hand-all grip on both of my Glocks because they move in my hand when shooting. I did not have that problem with the Sigma, though I may still put on a Hand-all, I love Hogue grips on almost any gun.

    Far as the guns are easy to work on yourself If you have a little
    Knowlege about gun they are GREATT Guns for the $$ &
    get use to the trigger that is'nt That bad & is a CC GUN
    It helps that they unloaded a ton of them on the Afghan Police and Army.

    Where they are breaking, and malfunctioning, and being in general, a POS.

    I'm not saying you all's Sigmas are not great guns for you, I'm just saying they are not up to Military and Police applications. Their problems are well-documented and legion.

    Guess I'm a little late here, but I would take a used Glock over a new Sigma. $365 at Summit gun Broker.

    Firearms, Guns, Rifles. Grain Valley, Missouri.
    I like the price, but I cannot see myself buying a gun that I cannot see/hold before purchasing it.
    That being said, a friend of mine bought a "used" LE ordered G22 two days ago, with the case, all the accessories, 3 mags and never registered with Glock. It was verified by Glock cust svs that a police dept purchased the weapon(s), didn't use them (there were 2 at the time he bought it) sent them back to Glock and they sent them to Gander Mtn. And G. Mtn. has to sell them as used. He paid $490.00 and put 15 rounds through it and didn't like the RTF2 grip. It is absolutely new! He will sell it to me for $450.00. All I have to do now is decide if I want a 2nd .40cal so soon. I do like the Sigma quite a bit, but like I said in an earlier post, I like the idea of having different sized guns in the same caliber. The Sigma is a lot like the G23 and that would go nicely with the G22. I would have to make payments on it though.
    Decisions...decisions.
