View Full Version : s&w sigma sv40e

September 20, 2011, 08:21 PM
This is my truck gun. It always rides in the truck with 3 full mags. Obviously comes indoors when truck is parked then does nightstand duty. Today at the range i decided to pull out the sigma and rip through the three spare mags.

What i got was 40/42 rounds on the 8" circle at 7 yards. This was as rapid as rapid fire can get with two reloads. I had no way to time myself but next time I will.

Made me feel dam good about my truck gun :)

I love the sigma's I have an sw9f an sw9ve and I'm thinking about buying the sd40. They are way under rated if you ask me.they are also the most comortable pistol for me to shoot hands down. Those guys that complain about trigger pull are pansies were grown men you wuld think we could find better things to complain about.

The Sigma/SW9VE is still haunted by the poor reputation that the first Sigmas deservedly earned, but its original issues have long since been addressed. It's a no-frills, reliable, durable gun with nice ergos and a not-so-good trigger.

If 14/15 of those bad boys find their mark I am all set. For that matter if i ever need to do two reloads with it i figure i am having a terrible day.

S&W sells many guns, including their Sigma line. Sigmas aren't advertised as "Truck Guns" but many find they are handy for truck duty. They are well designed and manufactured and can do everything that you ask them to. Most are more accurate than their owners realize.

I find the trigger on my 1st generation SW40F to be a non-issue, and like you, I find that when firing rapidly it is not relevant to putting rounds on target quickly. The Sigma was not designed to be a slow fire bullseye gun, and when used it for slow fire, the long pull trigger is evident, just like the trigger pull on a double action revolver.

Keep shooting it, and enjoy.

If only I could find a light to fit the thing it would be an even better truck gun and excellent for the night stand. I just haven't found anything that fits it.

I've said many times; the sigma is the energizer bunny of guns.

It just keeps going. No problems whatsoever with mine.

Perfect for the nightstand or truck. Fun at the range too.

As Austin pointed out, the ergos are splendid on the gun!

Finally there are others on this forum who like the Sigmas. It seems like every time some one mentions the name sigma people just regard them as trash or a waste of money. I got mine a few years ago because it was something I could afford while in college. I paid $249 for it new, and S&W had a promotion where you could get $50 and two free mags. It has been a great gun. No, the trigger is not the best possable, but it goes bang everytime.

the triggers can be greatly improved with a detail strip and polish job. I have had nothing but good service from mine, one was the 40F that they had to stop making because Glock sued them, and the other was the slightly tweaked 40VE.

You could do alot worse for $300.

I'm one of those "pansies" zachkuby87, who complain about the trigger on the Sigmas because, and let's face it, the Sigmas just don't have very good triggers.

With that said, for the price of the Sigma line, I think it's a good gun and wouldn't be against buying one. Overall, in my experience with them, they are very reliable and accurate even with a heavy, gritty trigger pull. For the money, it's a solid purchase.

There are way better guns out there. I just dont see a need to spend more on a truck gun. My lgs wont install a 50 cal turret on the tailgate so till then this will come on every trip the ram does.

Any ideas on lights?
