    Some like them. Many don't. Go for it if you really are in need of being $239 lighter in the wallet and another 26oz heavier in S&W Sigma.

    Sigma's are AWESOME guns!!!!!

    They are inexpensive and that is why the "purists" hate them.

    Sigma's work. Pure and simple. Heavy triggers? Yes. Reliable? ABSOLUTELY!


    Go for it! I would at that price.

    PS- I think you mean't SW9VE:wavey:

    Better off getting a Ruger .22 or Walther P22 for a little more or use that money on to save for a larger gun purchase. Or buy more ammo.

    I've shot one, wasn't impressed. If you need A cheap gun, get A used smith or taurus revolver.

    My Dad has one, he seems to like it. I've shot it twice, I didn't have any complaints, trigger wasn't bad.

    Bud'sgunshop.com sells new ones & the same gun in .40 for $309.00 and often for $299.00. It may not be worth paying $239.00 for a used one that someone may have messed with as it could cost you more than the difference to have it fixed. They are not great or terrible but you have to try it yourself. If it is stolen it won't be too painful.

    I can't speak on the Ruger, but the Walther P22 is one of the cheapest pieces of junk handguns you can buy. I'd take a used Sigma over a P22 anytime. If you want a plinker, get a quality rimfire like a Ruger Mark III.

    I have owned one at $300 it was not worth it but then again if it were to cost $25 dollars that would make for and expensive fishing weight. That would be about the only use I could see for the one I had.

    I like the Sigma quite a bit.

    I had the .40 Sigma, it was two-tone. It would breach jam rounds 9 and 10 everytime, I attribute it to the 10 round Clinton mags. Who knows, 'cause I sold it for the same price I gave for it. I also added that it was a jam-o-matic. Other that and the trigger was heavier than I like, it was a decent handgun.

    There are tons better guns out there than the Sigma.
    I have quite a lot of those. I still love the Sigma pistol. I bought two in 99, and just bought a third one here a year or so ago.

    The early guns had problems, but since they have been selling the VE model.
    They have all been good guns. I often choose to carry a Sigma over a Glock.

    For that price if it came with 2+ mags it would be hard to pass up.

    Would make a great spare gun for the truck/hunting camp/lakehouse. They are reliable guns IMO just got a bad rap in their early days.

    I'd wait until Smith and Wesson runs their "Free Gold's Gym Membership" when you buy a Sigma special. You'll need it for the trigger pull.

    Actually, the trigger is the only thing I don't like about it, but its no target pistol anyway.

    Seems like a good deal for a VE model, the trigger is heavy but the ergos are really good.
