    :confused:I just bought a S&W 40 VE Sigma Series autoloader, which as I'm sure, most of you know has a hard trigger pull... but otherwise, a great gun... Does anyone know of a good gunsmith who can do a trigger job on this gun .. to "lighten the load?"

    This is free and works great, did it myself

    And/Or you can send it back to S&W and get them to do it, they did mine for free and paid postage both ways

    I have 3 sigma's, 1 stock, 1 spring removal trigger job, 1 factory job.... the free one and smith one honest to god feel the same.

    Hope that helps

    If you shoot around ~500 rounds through it, the trigger will lighten considerably. I strongly advise against the home concocted trigger lightening on Youtube. Send it back to S&W if the trigger really drives you nuts.

    Also, you can adjust your trigger pull by shooting more like a revolver in double-action. Use more of your finger, instead of your finger tip to pull the trigger. Once you get used to it, you'll be hitting the X. :)

    I've shoot around 200 rounds through mine and done some dry firing using snap caps and the trigger pull has improved quite a bit. I'm starting to think that it's going to smooth out fine without the need for any modification.

    Sigma Trigger Pull Adjustment

    Thanks guys, for the info... I will see if putting a few hundred rounds through it makes some difference, as suggested.... So S&W will adjust the trigger pull for free ... That sounds great... if needed....

    I feel your pain...a buddy had a S&W Sigma .40 with a measured 14 POUND trigger pull.

    He sold it after he saw the weight on the trigger pull gauge :).

    Just my .02,

    I only shoot mine vertical and attach a 10 pound brick to the trigger... nice crisp 2lb trigger.
