The individual was shooting the SW40VE.
What is the difference between the SW40VE and the SD40VE???

With the success of the M & P ...I wonder why SW even makes the SD40VE anymore.

The Sigma we were shooting was the model SW40VE.

The person was to be buying this used, but after shooting one of my 1911s and my Hi-Power clone, they cancelled the deal.

I have the compact version of this in 9mm and LOVE it. I'm not into .40 though.

Tell him to spend the extra $100 and go gen 3 glock 22. Look at the history and back ground of the gun. It will last him the rest of his life and some. Just my 2 cents, but, it's cause I have one also. Love it.

Gen 4 Glock 23. They added a double recoil spring so it's a G23 that shoots as soft as a 19.

Many 40sw options out there. I have a Ruger SR40 which has been a nice shooter and didn't break the bank..
