Just arrived back from a quick range trip this afternoon. I ran 108 rounds of .40 FMJ (180 Grain) through my Sigma, and here is an example of my typical results. While not the greatest (I know I can do better. I just have to pay closer attention to the fundamentals), the two groups displayed here (group #1 is 14 rounds, and group #2 is 6 rounds) are serviceable.
The target was engaged at a distance of 15 yards from the standing unsupported position. There were no winds, and the ambient temp was around 60 degrees.
The point of aim for the first group was center bullseye. The point of aim for the second group was the upper-right hand bullseye. Rate of fire was slow and untimed.
Zero malfunctions were encountered. The Sigma ran like a dream the whole time.
- The Sigma SW40VE continues to prove itself as a very capable and dependable sidearm for self-defense purposes.
- Testing of lighter loads will have to be done. I believe that if I use something in the 165 grain or less, my POA and my impacts will be closer together.
- More practice with the trigger pull is needed. I am still in the process of mastering the heavier trigger pull of the Sigma. It is very easy to get off target with the long, heavy pull. Anyone purchasing this weapon will need to put the time in to properly train with it.
