I have one. It is reliable. Totally reliable. But it has a crappy trigger. If you want something to defend yourself with you could do a lot worse. If you want something to do bullseye or competition you could do a lot better. $250 is not a bad price.

Shoot it yet? Fine gun, lousy trigger. Pull weight is like a revolver...some like it, some don't.

The newer model is MUCH better. I have the SD40VE in and it's trigger is a lot smoother.

Man i have the exact same gun you do. Its not bad for the price. I have fired many rounds through it without problem or any failures. I was shooting on my land at night amd had a two foot by two foot ply wood board about fifteen feet away and loaded four pdx1 jhps in the mag. I fired as fast as i could and i hit the board all four times. This isnt the most pin point pistol but it is for sure a dang good deal. My wife had it for sd and hd when i am at work so i trust it

I had the same gun. Hated it and got rid of it. One of the few guns I don't regret selling.

I would have already sold it. But it was a gift from my wife. I dont want to hurt her feelings.

Not a bad price, but not a great pistol, if you like Glocks you might even love it.

Same here.. The newer version seems to solve all the negatives of the original Sigma... New SDVE 's go fir around $330.. The original is not horrible just takes some time to get use to the trigger.. $250 is a fair price... No great
