I am curious. atctimmy. What is meant by OC in your post.
My sigma ve40 has given me no problems at all, yes it does have a heavy trigger but I knew that b4 I purchased it. If any of you do a spring change or remove, do not get that wolf striker spring. Your asking for light strikes and trouble. Just change the spring in the rear trigger housing section, and if u don't know what ur doing get it too a gunsmith to get it right. I like my sigma as it the same size as a g23 ....
thank you accessbob, for explaining it to me. I feel alittle silly not getting that.
About 200 rds through my Sigma 40 S&W - no problems with function at all - did the trigger mod and it is much better - no qualms whatsever about carrying this gun into hostile situations
I had a Sigma for a while, so I'll chime in. Mine was a 40 caliber.
First thing I'll say is that it's hard to call it junk. They are dead solid reliable. Mine never gave any problems and I shot it a lot.
Where they lose points is in the details. The gun feels good in the hand, but it's huge, combat accuracy at best (could never get it to do better than a fist sized group at 7 yards) and the trigger was awful.
My opinion, if you want a quality gun to trust your life to, but don't want to spring for a shot gun, the S&W Sigma is hard to beat for a nightstand gun on the cheap. High capacity, accessory rail, workable accuracy, and solid reliability.
They also work well in security or open carry applications where it doesn't matter if someone sees your gun.
My opinion is that they are ill suited for CCW. I found it impossible to conceal without going to extreme lengths to dress around it (coats or overgarments were mandatory).
An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.
They r the same size as a glock 23...? Too big?
