Horrible trigger, accurate once you figure it out. Reliable, inexpensive, it's a S&W.

I think Trip 286 said it best...(and I'm paraphrasing) "trigger sucks, goes bang every time, will outlast you, your kids and your grandkids".

I have a 40VE and the smith at the range didn't even want to mess w/it. What'd it run to have it re-sprung?

I think I paid around $40 , $14 of that was the spring.

If you plan to use it for SD then leave the gun stock. Having a modified trigger can raise legal issues for SD which may bite you.

I have a Sigma 9 and I like it. I don't find the trigger bad and it's the safety feature of the gun. It won't go bang unless you really want it to. Great grip and wide trigger makes it comfy to hold and shoot. Since I'm not using it for SD I removed the torsion spring which made the trigger a little lighter but smoother for range shooting.

Yeah, I got around the need for it to be my SD gun by buying an M&P 40c. :)

I've since bought several diff pistols for that purpose, so it would be a rare exception to go to the Sigma for carry. That being the case, I'd like the trigger to be lightened.

The Sigma is kind of an enigma for S&W. They tried to make it Glock like and the only thing they got for their efforts there was sued by them for the safety. Patent infringement, or something like that. Still, for a low cost semi in two caliber choices, it isn't bad. There are numerous articles and videos on improving the trigger which is the major complaint about the VE series. The main mod I see is now is for the removal of the secondary spring which lightens up the pull but is allegedly not supposed to hinder the safe operation of the pistol. I don't own a Sigma and have never tried to do the mod on anyone's so all I know is what I read.

For the price point, you could do a lot worse.
