    S&W Sigma 9mm

    I have pretty much decided on the S&W Sigma 9 mm for my carry gun. It's bigger and heavier than I want but S&W is rock solid in my mind. What do y'all think???

    It's been my EDC for over 2 years now. I use an inexpensive IWB holster. Approximately 2000 practice rounds without a problem. CW

    You will get a lot of negative about the terrible trigger from the Sigma bashers, but they are great guns for the money. The trigger is long and relatively heavy, but mine has never had a failure. If you can shoot a revolver, the Sigma is no problem. I'm in the market for a .40 cal. now. Get it and enjoy.

    i've had one for 2 years, i love it. the only problems are accessories: lights, holters, etc. i have a few holsters that fit it: a bianchi minimalist, an uncle mike's IWB, and for OC, i use a blackhawk serpa for a glock 21.

    The rebate ran from May 15 through August 15

    I've had a Sigma SW9F (the original Glock competitor) for sometime and think it's an outstanding gun. While I prefer my Kimber Ultra Carry, the Sigma is my alternate carry weapon.

    Horrible trigger on the Sigma. And, a trigger job can not be done on them. Take that same amount of $$$ and spend it on a good quality used firearm.

    My 40VE just plain works. I have it as my HD gun with a light on it.

    I've got to disagree about the trigger being "horrible". The trigger on my 40ve is smooth. Of course, I have lots of rounds downrange plus a lot of dry firing. I am faster and more accurate with my sigma during rapid fire than any other gun I own. IMO the sigma is an excellent carry gun in either 9mm or 40 caliber. Yes, it's got some size to it but it's very light weight for for the size class it's in.

    I have the o.g. sw9f glock copy and it makes one ******* truck gun. It's replaceable, inexpensive, and reliable.

    I have a Sigma SW40V It was giving me a headache with a failure to extract the spent casing. Not every time but enough to not carry it as a daily carry gun. I sent it in to S&W on a friday and got it back in ten days. All problems fixed and no charge whatsoever.

    Two of my friends own them. The one I fired had a long DA pull but the least recoil of any .40 I've ever fired. A lighter trigger pull than my CZ100 in 9mm and some will complain about how long it is. But still good to go for someone on a budget.

    Cheap and reliable. Give me a SIGMA over a Hi-Point any day!

    Sigmas used to be our duty guns.

    The department shoots twice a year, anywhere from 300 to 500 rounds each time. My gun never made it through a training/qualification session without some kind of failure (mine wasn't the only gun having problems either). Usually it was a failure to feed, with the bullet pressed into the feed ramp.

    Also, for those who practice magazine changes, be aware that the follower will break if you drop the magazine and it lands 'wrong'.

    I was really glad to see them go.
