Agreed, my Dad has a 9mm. Don't like the trigger at all, never had a malfunctuon though.

I have had one in .40 cal for around 5 years and love it. I have better guns, but the sigma is a fantstic pistol. Yes he trigger is heavy, but I like that. Since the gun is like a glock having no manuel safty, I get peace of mind from it having a heavy trigger pull. And that is why the pull is so heavy, I guess s&w made it that way so cops going from a double action revlover would have less of a chance of making a AD.

Mine has had no problems, except I wore the fude rod out, sent it to them and they put a new guide rod, and new spring and new extractor. So for 300 or so bucks and a lifetime guarantee from an american company, its hard to beat.

This pretty much sums it up. You can find them regularly in the $299 range, which makes it a fantastic pistol, IMO.

Reliable gun, lousy trigger.

Sigmas run about $300. For that price I'd probably prefer a Ruger P-series.

Best semi-auto bang for your budget, IMO:

$300- Ruger P-series
$400- Ruger SR9, S&W SD9, Sig SP2022, SA XD "Essential"
$500- Most polymers (Glock, M&P, XD, FNP), CZ 75b, used alloy Sigs, entry level 1911

I want them all! I'd add:

$300-Kahr- not really a range gun but nice trigger
$400-Baretta Storm
$500-Baretta 92

Where do you guys live? I see the msrp at like $389, and where I live I see them at like $350 NIB.

I love mine! It shoots better than I do. The trigger is a little heavy, but its smooth. I like the trigger because there is no conventional safety. I use it for my primary carry, shoots good, reliable, accurate, high capacity, and light weight.

Its a Smith&Wesson...enough said.

About two years ago the market was absolutely flooded with Sigmas. Like new/used Sigmas were everywhere for $200-250, and the new ones were easy to find at $250-300 (and that came with a $50 cash back/two free mags voucher). The supply had dried up a little so right now I can get a new one for $319, including all state/transfer fees, etc.

Apart the trigger, the other down side is the supply:demand. Not so great resale if you decide to sell. It's not a bad gun, I just think spending an extra $100 gets you a whole lot more shooter-friendly package in something like a SP2022, SR9, XD9 essential, etc.

S&W makes good polymer guns. I think the M&P is an outstanding line, and the SD9 is sort of an upgraded Sigma.

Exclusively a carry gun. I like the nicer Kahrs like the PM9. Have yet to shoot a CM9. It might be outstanding for all I know.

But the CW9 isn't so great. It's got a nice size, but terribly mushy trigger. You're pulling it...any time now...when is it going to fire?...any time now...is something wrong?...Bang!

The Sigma is good enough that the local PD around here uses them as a primary issue
