Anyone know what these pistols go for? my neighbor has one and she wants 500.00 for it I told her that seems kinda high. What would be a fair price for a used sigma 40S&W?

Sigmas suck. You can get a new Glock for less than that. Dont buy it......

Academy Sports sells 'em for $319, then you can get either the $50 rebate OR two free extra mags from S&W.
Five bills is about double what a used one is worth.

There is nothing wrong with a sigma if you want a really high quality chew toy for your dog. :D

Thats what I told my neighbor your not going to get 500.00 for a used sigma, it feels like it has a 20 LB trigger are they all like this?

Yes you need frickin vice grips to use it. Glocks are all 5.5 lbs, you can change the trigger to 3.5 with a $10 part.

Yes, they are all like that. Very hard trigger pull, and it was designed that way. You can make it a little lighter by removing one of the springs. To do this just go to youtube and search Sigma trigger job.
Question for KAK. Have you ever owned a Sigma? I had a few problems out of mine early, but it was the ammo. It feeds all quality ammo and my handloads fine. I have had an issue or two, but not enough to qualify it as crap.
Don't get me wrong, there are many I would rather have, but when I bought it I was on a very tight budget. I think I did okay for $299.

wow sigma's have been getting alot of attention as of late here. I do think that they are a good value, and they are definetly reliable, however no where near $500 even brand new. i would pay $325 OTD for a NIB maybe and that would be it.

I would just prefer a better gun (having lots of experience with all of these said guns), and that absolutely does NOT mean more expensive. I would rather choose Kel-Tec or Taurus in that price range for new guns. I would even say an used Glock, Springfield, or CZ would also fit the bill very nicely. Still the new Glock, Springfield, and CZs are not that much more expensive.

Here I found you a $479 dollar Glock 23 (Similar size and weight to the Sigma, actually S&W got sued over it) BRAND NEW (http://www.glockworld.com/item/42561_Glock_Hand_Guns_Pistols_Glock_PI2350203_Model_23_.aspx)

500!! holy crap!

250 tops like new. 300 TOPS new.

Here's the deal though. They are GREAT guns!! I'd venture to say that the S&W Sigma 9&40 are the highest Return On Investment you can get in an auto pistol in those cartridges from a major, trusted manufacturer.

My shooting buddies from several states have several of them combined. All are given thorough workouts, some even carry them. I'd carry a Sigma and be completely confident with it.

She needs to come down about 250$ though! :)

I'd never pay that, but if you can score one at about 1/2 that price, I doubt you'll regret it. I carry a Sigma, and trust it to do what its supposed to do should I need it. The THIRD GEN. sigmas (9ve and 40VE) are good guns. I cannopt speak as to earlier models, as I have no experience, but haven't heard good things. However, for a $250 NIB 9mm, the Sigma is more than I was really expecting. Its 1/2 as much as Glock. Are Glocks better? Maybe, but are they 2x as good? Nope, not in my experience at least! If I was going pistol shopping with $500 I'd rather have 2 Sigmas than one Glock, personally..... and with today's rebate deal, I could about get 2 Sigmas, and a total of about 8 mags, for the price of a Glock..or, at the very least, a Sigma, 4 mags, and a LOT of ammo!!! I don't disagree about Glocks being good guns, but the price of the Sigma is much more attractive to most poeple, and the Sigmas are good guns if you are aware of their limitations (namely, the trigger)

Update my neighbor sold the sigma for 450.00, she told the person they go for 800.00 brand new and the bad thing is she sold it to her cousin.
