    reply from smith n wesson

    ok i emailed smith n wesson on saterday about the exccesiv triger pull with my ve 40.i know was told about the stiff pull here but i had already bought the gun.btw the pull acording to s&w is ten to fourteen pounds. and they say thay cant adjust it because it must have fallen into there peramiters of 10 to 14 lbs. man in my mind thats heavy and ill be selling or trading it in at eirlyist opertunity and i wont buy another.: it was my first plastic gun and i was told that for the safety being in the trigger that was normal. well i now know you can get a glock down to 4 or 5 pounds so whats the deal with the smith i also talked to a local smith where i live and he told me no way to fix it any way thought you all might have some views my opinion as of now is ill never buy another plastic gun

    glock comes with around 6.5 trigger some say 5.5 depends how you mesure it ..

    There is a guy who will do trigger jobs on the sigma but it cost as much as the gun sell it or keep it as a beater not much else you can do

    Keep it. I have several guns in my collection that I have not shot in several years. There is no reason to sale a gun, add it to your collection. Work on it on your time, one way to bond with your guns.

    I think that Wolff makes a spring kit for the Sigma.

    Never realized they were that heavy!

    Mind you - I can and do accept heavy - IF - smooth and progressive. That is something familiarity and practice can get to grips with but - gritty and creep - whole 'nother problem.

    If yours is actually smooth then maybe some perseverence would yield a perceived improvement.

    If the trigger on his sigma is like any of the other Ive fired its anything but smooth and stacks getting super heavy before let off .. Not sure what a wolf kit will do for it

    You could try polishing trigger components but not sure how good that will do ya

    Smith has pretty much let the sigma go by the way side since they had to settle with glock for copyright infringement i read some where glock gets 25 or 50$ for every sigma sold

    I would suggest reading up on the Glock $0.25 trigger job, learning to detail strip your pistol, and applying the same concepts. Flitz and a muslin/felt bob, or even the med-fine rubber polishing tips won't damage your parts, unless you go crazy. Hint: don't "round" sharp edges, but lightly "break" the edge to make sure things are smooth. Flat surfaces should **SHINE**. Follow up with a Wolff kit, and I'm pretty sure you'll be much happier.

    I wouldn't screw with a carry gun. either let a smith fix it or buy a diffrent handgun. Nothing wrong with poly framed pistols, you just got a poor example compared to a Glock or similar.

    The Wolff spring makes a big difference in a Sigma. Just be sure to check/test with your carry ammo - should be fine, but the spring does reduce the striker's hit on the firing pin.
    I put one in a friend's pistol, and after 30 minutes of figuring out how to disassemble the thing, it was about a one-minute job...... which is usual for me.
