I like my 40ve as well but ima already looking to upgrade eventually. The sigmas are good beginer guns but the shooter can out grow the gun. Theres not much to them that can be upgraded. If you want the trigger light send it to LSG MFG. He did mine and it dropped the pull a little and smoothed it out.
I've got close to 7000 through mine. All CCI cheap stuff. It's a durable, cheap, reliable (I've had 2 fte because of a box of underpowered reloads I got from my cousin) On factory ammo I've never had a failure.
They are a great gun to have if you like to take friends shooting. If you take a friend out with a 250-300 dollar gun it's alot less stressful that worrying about dropping, mud, water, light triggers, wear and tear, and such that I would worry about with a 2000 dollar 1911 or 800 dollar sig.
Good beginners gun. Daddy didn't start you out in the $$$$$$$$corvette with 500Hp, he stuck you in the $VW or $$Corolla with 'Just' enough power to let you learn what you need to know.
I just bought it because I have a set of .40 reloading dies, and it was the cheapest (besides Hi-Point) gun out there. Plus I get two free mags with the rebate, unless someone knows of a real chepa place to get them from.
i had a Sigma for a few years; it was my first handgun. it was reliable, and accurate enough for self defense. i love how people who never owned one slam them. i sold it, and put the money towards a 1911.
the Sigma's a great value, just like the RIA.
