    SW9VE or SW40VE Input Desired

    I have a chance to purchase (new) either of the S&W sigma's (9mm or .40) for $249.00 after rebate.

    Can anyone tell me if this is a good deal? Are these decent pistols?

    Looking for a 9mm range gun and I don't want to over use my SR9.

    Any input would be appreciated

    That is a good price, about what I paid for mine (after rebate) plus I got 2 free mags.

    I have the .40, not sure why I went with that over the 9mm; I just did and so far it works out.

    They are decent guns. I've shot both the 9mm & .40 & actually found I could shoot the .40 better.

    Trigger sucks on both.And I've never been a DAO or striker fired fan....

    My thoughts exactly. I chose the 9mm because ammo was cheaper.

    My first handgun four years ago was a Sigma 40ve. I have over 2,000 rounds downrange. I liked the gun so much I bought a 9ve a couple years later. I'm very accurate with either gun. The 9mm especially would be a nice range gun considering the low amount of recoil. I almost bought a third Sigma last week. It was used in new condition at Gander Mtn. for believe it or not $200. I was distracted because I was buying a Ruger GP100. When I went back three days later to snag the Sigma it was gone.

    How reliable? I reload ammo and have run several different kinds of ammo with no failures. That includes shooting a bunch of flat nose lead reloads. If the gun will cycle that shape ammo it will cycle anything.

    I have not fired many rounds through mine (SW9VE) perhaps 200 rounds. It has been flawless. I bought mine about 15 months ago for around $325.00. I consider it to have been on of better investments even though I paid well for it.

    Filed striping and cleaning is a breeze and the thing feels right when it's in my hand. Personally I did not see a need for the 40.

    I think they are darn good guns for the money.

    Best!

    I like mine alot, so does my Wife. I did a trigger job on mine (knowingly voiding the warranty and assuming all risks) and it only got better.

    Either one you won't be disappointed. Send it in and have the trigger fixed. then the only issue will be ammo available and cost. Both of mine have several thousand rounds through without issue.

    Where are you buying it? I've been thinking about getting the 9MM Allied Forces Sigma but I don't know where to look as far as purchasing one. Also I've heard great things about the newer models of Sigma besides the trigger pull.

    ive got the .40 and i think its a great firearm. ive put a couple hundred rounds thru mine, only had it a couple months, without a single malfunction. as it has been said the trigger leaves something to be desired but after you get used to it its not that bad. you could also do a trigger job, but, as said above, it will void the warranty.

    I have the 9mm and it been a good handgun for the money.I put all kinds of ammo through it from fmj to hollow points.This pistol shot all kinds of wolfammo with no problem.When the 1994 ban was lifted I purchased several 16 round magazines what a difference now I had 16 +1 I was ready for any threat.I was
    so pleased with the sigma line;how can you hate the price and lifetime warranty
    I bought a 40 cal. Fate intervened my new pistol would not fire every time I pulled the trigger it seems It seem the firing pin was bad.Talk about unnerving
    pulling a trigger and nothing happens.I got rid of it but I still kept my 9mm.

    The early sigma's were crap. The current generation are damn decent handguns, specially for the price.
