The Sigma has one of the best feeling grips on the market (IMHO). They are accurate and reliable. The earlier models (F and C) had acceptable triggers. The mid range models (V) were a bit heavy. The newest ones (VE) have crappy triggers, admittedly so. For the price they are good guns. If you think they are top heavy, you will not like any of the polymer frame guns, especially the Rugers.

They are not high end 1911's and are not intended to be.

There's just gotta be a reason that so many experienced shooters refer to the "Sigma" as the" Smegma."

Because they are spoiled, can’t adapt and need something to pin their crappy performance on , so it must be the gun right ?

I have the 9mm and other than the 60 pound trigger it is great.... But once I got used to it I could rock a milk jug at 25 yards

I think not. I'm referring to highly skilled and experienced shooters.

The sigma is not the greatest gun in the world but its not the worst either, I just don't see why some people compare it to all these high priced guns. Of course it's not gonna be better than a Sig or even a high dollar Smith and Wesson, just my opinion though

I watched a youtube video from a channel called ''gunsmithUSA" I followed his instructions and did a trigger mod to it (took out two unneccessary springs) and WOW my SW9VE has a trigger comparable to a glock or xd... I love my VE even more now

I took out only the torsion spring on my 9ve. Trigger's still a little hard but I like it better. 750 rounds so far and still 100%.

Waaaa, Waaaa. Glad you did shot a buddies glock. That sigma 40 will kill someone just as died. For way less money invested. My swve 40 cost me 289 out the door new, did some the trigger work at home and added a 4 dollar stricker spring , nice 6 lb trigger now. Makes for a good house gun. Hang around a while and someone will tell you how bad the witness line can be and how ugly the ruger P series is. I have or had all these and caught crap from folks on them too at times. Does it matter. noooooooo
