I have two friends that have them. One in a 9 and one in a .40. I have shot both. Both were delivered with triggers that sucked. no lie there. Both guys got trigger jobs done by a gunsmith for about $40. I have shot both again and they are much better.

For $289 + $40 or so it is a pretty decent gun. Decent accuracy, goes bang every time you pull that bang stick, and if you are a little short on cash, it is not a bad investment.

I have an older type Sigma 40c. Does anyone know if I can use a Glock magazine in my Sigma since it was copied from a Glock? Any help from anyone would be appreciated.

I sold my sd40ve yesterday to my cousin and bought a m&p 40. there is a world of difference. if you have the extra 200 I highly recommend the m&p. the sd is still a great gun for the money. I put over 1500 rounds through it and never had a problem. My wife and kids who are new to hand guns like the sd because they are easier to field strip, has a few less parts, and has a finger rest between the trigger and the slide. I am considering getting another sd just to keep in my hunting truck.

Purchased a SD40VE a week or so ago. Took it to the range the other day and am very pleased so far. I only put 50 rounds through it though. The trigger wasn't nearly as bad as I anticipated. I have owned several DAO pistols and the trigger pull is similar but not as "hard" to pull. My dad, a Glock guy, thought it was long though. He did like how it pointed more naturally than his Glock.

This was my first pistol when I turned 21. I had it in 40. Went bang everytime and the only issues were the obvious...trigger etc. Very reliable and cheap. I eventually traded it in for another but I miss it. Good truck gun or good carry for through the woods.
