Some like them. Many don't. Go for it if you really are in need of being $239 lighter in the wallet and another 26oz heavier in S&W Sigma.

Sigma's are AWESOME guns!!!!!

They are inexpensive and that is why the "purists" hate them.

Sigma's work. Pure and simple. Heavy triggers? Yes. Reliable? ABSOLUTELY!


Go for it! I would at that price.

PS- I think you mean't SW9VE:wavey:

Better off getting a Ruger .22 or Walther P22 for a little more or use that money on to save for a larger gun purchase. Or buy more ammo.

I've shot one, wasn't impressed. If you need A cheap gun, get A used smith or taurus revolver.

My Dad has one, he seems to like it. I've shot it twice, I didn't have any complaints, trigger wasn't bad.

Bud'sgunshop.com sells new ones & the same gun in .40 for $309.00 and often for $299.00. It may not be worth paying $239.00 for a used one that someone may have messed with as it could cost you more than the difference to have it fixed. They are not great or terrible but you have to try it yourself. If it is stolen it won't be too painful.

I can't speak on the Ruger, but the Walther P22 is one of the cheapest pieces of junk handguns you can buy. I'd take a used Sigma over a P22 anytime. If you want a plinker, get a quality rimfire like a Ruger Mark III.

I have owned one at $300 it was not worth it but then again if it were to cost $25 dollars that would make for and expensive fishing weight. That would be about the only use I could see for the one I had.

I had the .40 Sigma, it was two-tone. It would breach jam rounds 9 and 10 everytime, I attribute it to the 10 round Clinton mags. Who knows, 'cause I sold it for the same price I gave for it. I also added that it was a jam-o-matic. Other that and the trigger was heavier than I like, it was a decent handgun.

There are tons better guns out there than the Sigma.
I have quite a lot of those. I still love the Sigma pistol. I bought two in 99, and just bought a third one here a year or so ago.

The early guns had problems, but since they have been selling the VE model.
They have all been good guns. I often choose to carry a Sigma over a Glock.

For that price if it came with 2+ mags it would be hard to pass up.

Would make a great spare gun for the truck/hunting camp/lakehouse. They are reliable guns IMO just got a bad rap in their early days.

I'd wait until Smith and Wesson runs their "Free Gold's Gym Membership" when you buy a Sigma special. You'll need it for the trigger pull.

Actually, the trigger is the only thing I don't like about it, but its no target pistol anyway.

Seems like a good deal for a VE model, the trigger is heavy but the ergos are really good.

I like the ergos better than Glock's.

Have had one for over 10 years, great gun, goes bang every time. Not sure 239 for used is good deal, they are 289 new.

I had one, horrible trigger and many malfunctions. Sold it for $200 to a friend who thought he could fix it. He ended up sending it back a couple of times but it was never reliable. I think it just sits in his safe now.

I owned a Smith & Wesson SWV9E Sigma 9mm, like I said "owned" ... This Gun was a complete FAIL, the only two good things I can say about this gun was it looked half way decent and the sights were dead on, other than that not worth the $300 plus tax I paid for it. From the mag followers sticking causing malfunctions, the ejector causing several stove pipes to the Extremely HEAVY 11lb trigger pull. Not to mention when I called S&W about these issues all I got was 2 new slide followers NO OTHER SUPPORT as if they could care less. So I sold it AS Soon AS I Could!!!! My Recommendation .... Don't cheap out, spend a little more money and get a better gun "Springfield, KAHR, M&P, H&K or Just BUY a GLOCK!!!

My SW40VE works fine for what it is. Trigger is an easily improved. Several videos out there on it.

Not a bad gun for the money. I'm not a fan but it sure beats a Hi Point.

this^^ shot one heavy but not unmanageable trigger. worked just fine. yes id get one especially at that price id not pay over $250 for one though.

Though now id also look around for a used(slightly) Ruger P series(ive also seen these at that price) check out cdnn also they have had some good prices on stuff at not a lot more from time to time.

I don't have one nor do I have any trigger time on one outside of handling one in a store and an ANP police chief's Sigma a few years ago but I still am thinking of getting one. Yeah, I got a lot higher quality guns that I can turn to but the Sigma still peaks my interest. The trigger is heavy with a long reset but I'm not sure I would call it a bad trigger. I've shot many a DA revolver with heavy triggers and a long reset so is this really such a stretch to go from a revolver to a Sigma? Besides, when it comes to a loaner, or a beater gun it might have a place in my collection.

It's a great gun, and seriously under priced for what you get. Mine is 100% reliable and accurate. Only complaint is the heavy trigger from the factory.

I'd put it next to my Glocks any day of the week in any category. It would equal it in most and beat it in some.

The sigma was my first polymer handgun. Very accurate once you mastered the heavy trigger, probably make you a better shooter on other handguns. I like mine but rarely shoot it anymore, I keep it in my truck. Never had any issues with it.

I'm not a Sigma fan, but I'd take a $239 Sigma any day over a $150 Hi-Point. For a bargain defense gun it would be hard to beat.

Old forum members here used to call them Smegma's as they have awful triggers. I did fire an older model years ago and the trigger must have been 20lbs! Smith and Wesson may have made the newer ones better though. Academy had them on Black Friday for $199 the year before last. I passed and got their black friday Taurus pt92 instead for $249 instead.
