Bad trigger pull on S&W40VE

I have had the pistol for about a year and can't stand the trigger pull on it. It has not gotten any better like some said it would. It feels like it has about a 10lbs trigger pull, (I know its not that much but it seems like it) Anyone know how to adjust it?

It's ONLY 9.1 lbs.

Call S&W & tell 'em that your trigger is gritty and rough. They may do the trigger job for free.

I called S&W about the trigger on a Sigma 9mm (because I kept reading about the wonderful FREE S&W trigger job) and was told there was nothing they could do. Maybe in days gone by they would fix these triggers, but not any more.

Stay with it. I am told they smooth out over time, but if you keep a firm grip, concentrate on your sight picture and pull the trigger straight back- the results will be equally good.

I can do good on a target with it but you have to take your time. I like the gun, very easy to take apart and clean accuarate, just a very heavy trigger.

I actually like the 40VE's long 'heavy' pull and just treat it like a DA revolver. They can be shot well enough in a hurry in that manner.



Good results are indeed possible if you slow down a little;



I find that to be pretty much the case whatever I'm shooting. More on a recent example, here.

I don't get to shoot as much as I would like so my skill level I have to take my time

Lots of complaints on the Sigma trigger.
Lots of info on correcting it, too.
