The guide rod would be my biggest concern being that it seems flimsy. you might want to invest in a metal guide rod.

^^^^

Other than that, they have a rep as being a good gun that goes bang every single time you pull the crappy trigger. That's the only complaint I have against them and the only one I hear from other people. The trigger sux. Train with it and get some practice, it takes a bit more to get used to than a lot of other guns.

Be careful! I beilieve, the sigmas are the only pistols from s&w that are not under lifetime warranty. Any of the higher models s&w SD and m&p are all covered under lifetime waranties. I have friends with sigmas and they like a champ but down the road be sure to keep up with maintenance.

Really? Hmm I should of thought about the warranty first that would of been smart. And yea I noticed that guide rod was made of like nothin. Does anyone know a good one to pick up and use so I can ditch the plastic one?

Who said the Sigma series pistols are waranted for life? Sounds like complete BS to me. The old Sigma .380 and 9M are engineered for a 5000 rd life span and may not be covered indefinately for everything, but the rest of the Sigmas are supported forever (as far as I know). I sent a first gen 40F back last year for a colleague. Striker spring got weak with age. Smith happily replaced the spring and sent the gun back completely spic and span.

As far as the VE series. Good God the triggers are horrible!!! My 40C and 9V have much better triggers and the sdesign has not changed. There must be hope for the VE's, I believe they can be modified to be much nicer.

So after reading a mix of good and bad reviews about this gun, I've decided to purchase this gun for myself this Friday.

Outside of the most popular complaint, the trigger, anyone have any more to bring to the table about this gun?

I have 40ve model of the sigma. Payed 289 at my LGS . Keep reading guys there are thangs you can do to help the trigger pull if thats a problem. Tell S&W about how gritty the trigger is not how heavy it is and they will work it over and improve it. You can change the stricker spring to a lighter wolf spring and see how you like it then. Also some trigger tuneing tricks with the trigger springs but not if your carry'n it, maybe. I have mine down to 6lb 3 oz. works real nice. Mine is my house gun.
