    Got a handgun from my ma , nib s&w9ve feels good in the hand , trigger is a bit difficult but I've seen ways to remedy this. Pretty excited about shooting it. Lgs has given me some free time on the range i thought that was pretty nice of them.

    They're a great gun that goes bang everytime. Don't believe all that bad gun stuff. Enjoy.

    Run some rounds thru it to besure all works well. Then contact sw about a very gritty trigger you would like fixed. Remeber not a heavy trigger, gritty. It will come back smoother and a bit lighter. Then do what you wish to it. Many of us have them down to around 6lbs. Good shooting pistols.

    Sigmas are real good pistols, on par with Glock in my opinion once a little trigger work as been done and still for half the price. Enjoy!

    Probably one of the most underrated new production handguns out there. That and the Ruger P series. Only caveat is heavy trigger. If shooter can't handle it, it'll never be accurate for the shooter.

    one question i have is that my mother bought me this handgun so with the paper it gives you that you mail in or go online and complete do I do it or does she? Is she the owner because she bought it and had to go through the background check and such or am I the owner because she purchased it for me. I'm not prohibited no record or anything I'm just 20.

    I think the Sigma has pretty much lived down the reputation of it's previous life. Most people who own the recent ones like them.

    Mine failed on me last year at a rather inopportune time, but that was not due to faulty materials or design.

    It was a definable error in assembley with a definable solution to the problem. It was fixed free of charge and has gone back to being one of my favorite guns to shoot. And I trust it again.

    Depending heavily on your state laws, she may be able to gift you the weapon, in which case it becomes your property. I would research that procedure first, THEN contact Smith. DO NOT mention a heavy trigger, but
    rather, a GRITTY one. They're not dumb, they know what Sigma owners want, but I imagine they do not want the liability of "knowingly":rolleyes: lessening the factory pull...but they do it anyway and for free. Make sure you get a shipping label, let FedEx know what they are shipping, and there you go. It should come back with a few pounds shaved of the pull. Good luck.

    Great gun. Great value. Under-rated IMO. Factory trigger sucks.

    I'm just happy I got to support an American company , and I got a quality product. I wish everyone could say that , now a days seems everyone wants an Italian , Austrian, or German gun.

    I've had one for a couple years and I agree, it's the most under-appreciated gun on the market.

    Had one. My nephew wanted it. I gave him a deal. I bought another one a year later. I too think these guns are highly underrated.

    They are great pistols for their price range. You can pay more for better. You can get a lesser gun than what the Sigma cost. Go shoot it. S&W lifetime warranty. Enjoy.

    Ive owned the Sigma, in .40 S&W, and it was a great gun. It went on down the road some time ago and it has been missed. I, sadly, have recently acquired one of those Austrian guns at the expense of a Czech gun. In recent years I've been more impressed with European quality than American. I buy US ammo, though.

    Practice with that heavy trigger and you will be rewarded with some fun times and greater ability to handle other challenging trigger systems.

    Enjoy!

    It took mine 13 boxes to break in, 20% jams up until then. Now it is reliable using its 16 round mags. But when switching to a 10 rounder it is again unreliable. The long trigger actually made me a better shot. Some object to being able to see through it, i. e., space between slide & frame, but the M&P is the same way.

    I used to have the .40 version. At the time I bought it, Academy had a sale on for (with rebate) $250.

    The best NIB $250 pistol I have ever purchased. Got in a jam at the time and sold it for $300. Wish I still had it.
