Default S&W Sigma 40 S&W

Just picked up a older Sigma in 40 cal in excellent condition. I didn't have a 40 cal in my collection and since I like S&W pistols and the price was right I picked it up. Anyone have any experience with this pistol , either pro or con?

I have a Sigma VE model, it has worked perfect, trigger is a little stiff but other than that it works great. Chewy.

I have the VE in 9mm. The trigger is a little stiff, but it is accurate and reliable. Will pick up a .40 some day. They did have some frame cracking on some of the earlier ones (not all), so depends on how old it is and what the model designation is. Don't let all the trigger horror stories scare you and enjoy it. Here is a 5-7 yard group shot with mine this past weekend.

If your S/N starts with PAA or PAB contact Smith and Wesson to make sure it was updated after the recall. The first runs had chambers that were too tight. Smith replaced the barrels.

I have a 40C and a 9V. The 40 has 2-3K through it w/o issues. I carry it on a daily basis and have no complaints.

Do not attempt to detail strip the frame. Putting it back together is a real biotch w/o the slave pin that comes in the armorers kit.

I'm issued a Sigma 40VE as a duty gun by my employer. Mine has always performed flawlessly, and getting used to the trigger is not that big of a deal. Just your basic DA semi-auto.

Default Yep, Trigger Pull

I have a Sigma .40, when I got it the trigger pull was poorer than any Glock's I ever tried. With a little work it can be improved drastically, at the expense of some safety.

The Glock, Sigma, XD, and possibly the M&P all share a certain degree of uncertainty in the safety of the cocked striker (firing pin).

The safety issue is evidently not revealed often as an accidental discharge, so it lies there as a possibility..........

I recently bought one after my Taurus more than pissed me off. I have to say that was a hell of a trade up. I still have a .45acp 24/7 pro that I wouldn't trade for the world, it gives accuracy & dependability, but take my word for it steer clear of the PT92's by Taurus.

Well, Well, will you look at the influx of Sigma owners. Does my heart good.
Maybe, just maybe someday that Sigma/M&P subforum will get the green light.
I mean seriously Glock and XD have their own.



Oh, by the way mine is .357sig
My Serial prefix is PBA. What up with that?
