    I have one. It is reliable. Totally reliable. But it has a crappy trigger. If you want something to defend yourself with you could do a lot worse. If you want something to do bullseye or competition you could do a lot better. $250 is not a bad price.

    Shoot it yet? Fine gun, lousy trigger. Pull weight is like a revolver...some like it, some don't.

    The newer model is MUCH better. I have the SD40VE in and it's trigger is a lot smoother.

    Man i have the exact same gun you do. Its not bad for the price. I have fired many rounds through it without problem or any failures. I was shooting on my land at night amd had a two foot by two foot ply wood board about fifteen feet away and loaded four pdx1 jhps in the mag. I fired as fast as i could and i hit the board all four times. This isnt the most pin point pistol but it is for sure a dang good deal. My wife had it for sd and hd when i am at work so i trust it

    I had the same gun. Hated it and got rid of it. One of the few guns I don't regret selling.

    I would have already sold it. But it was a gift from my wife. I dont want to hurt her feelings.

    Not a bad price, but not a great pistol, if you like Glocks you might even love it.

    Same here.. The newer version seems to solve all the negatives of the original Sigma... New SDVE 's go fir around $330.. The original is not horrible just takes some time to get use to the trigger.. $250 is a fair price... No great

    The sigma is a great gun for the money. You must do the free trigger mod. I learned off a youtube channel "gunsmithUSA". It involves removing two uneccesary springs. It does not void the warranty because you cant put them back anytime. Takes 5 minutes. It cut my trigger pull in half and made it smoother.

    If it was for sale for $150, ill pass on & spend $500 for a Glock. $308 give or take is what they are worth new(s&w). But a gift huh.... If u sell it, u won't hear the end of it lol so keep it & buy 1 u like I guess.

    My niece enjoys hers.

    For the number of rounds she sent down range and no problems to report, it seems to be an okay firearm.

    Just picked up the new version of the "sigma" the sd9ve and put 50 rounds through it. For the price I love the way it shoots and the feel in my hand. The bad sdt trigger has been fixed and has a consistent pull of around 4 lbs

    This was the first and one of only two handguns I have shot and it sadly had the better trigger of the two.

    I owned one and traded it off.

    Very poor trigger ..

    There are just too many good guns out there to own one that's got a poor trigger design

    IMHO

    :cool:
