I have found a good deal on one and am very interested.I have talked to a gun smith who is a S&W warranty repair specialist and he says they are good guns with a lifetime warranty with free shipping both ways.What do you guys think about them?

I have the S&W40C, It is the first generation. I have had 0 problems with the gun. The orig 10 rd magazines are starting to wear, they will not allow the "last round hold open" to engage all of the time. So I mainly use the new Hi Caps. This is my main carry piece.

IMHO, they are not much of upgrade from HP c9. They feel better in the hand(and some might think it looks better) but the trigger is worse than c9. They best part of sigma is it carry the name of S&W. If you already own at least one Hi Point, I would recommend save up a bit more and get a use glock/xd. For sigma cost around 280 to 330, and a used glock/xd can be found around 370. But if you are picking up your first handgun or a truck gun, it's a nice piece for it.

I have a SW40VE, it's my main carry piece, never failed once. I have well over 3000rnds through it. the trigger, if it's to hard for you is a very easy fix. this is the gun that Glock sued S&W over due to the design and function, they settled out of court. A vast improvement over our beloved HP's due mainly to the lightness, it eats ANY ammo you want to throw in it, great hi-cap mags and ease of takedown for cleaning. I also have a G21 Glock and I much prefer carriying my sigma for the simple fact that it has never failed me.

oh and you are right, the warranty does cover shipping both ways and they are great to deal with, I sent mine in for a cracked frame rail and a new front sight, they sent back a new frame and free trijicon night sights to replace the standard sights that mere a little scuffed. turnaround was a total of 8 days

I found a Sigma WS40F for $220 otd.Looks pretty good some holster rash.I have a Glock G19 that I love.Just looking for another pistol to keep in my truck.Just trying to make my mind up.It would be a different caliber so I would have to buy ammo.I may just try and find a used C9 (I already have one) and be done with it.

I have one and it is a good gun. I got mine from my brother who bought it before the Clinton gun ban in the mid 90's. I have 5 15rnd mags and 1 10 rnd mag for it. Mine has the tritium night sights on it as well. Shoot straight and functions flawlessly. My only complaint is it kicks hard. No biggie. Parts are easy to get if you ever need them. I have had mine for 10+ years and never had to do anything to it other than clean it after use. Good solid gun! Don't pay too much for it. I bet that I wouldn't be able to much more than $300 for mine even with the 5 extra hi-cap mags. I my area at least. there are lots of guns on the market right now. It eats any ammo that I throw in it. 8)

Mine is a good gun. It does have the hardest trigger I have ever tried but it is consistant and in no way gritty. For the right price it would make a good gun for someone. I dont really cary mine due to the squareness of it pokes at me a lot.

All in all I think they are a good pistol with a hard trigger.

My first gun was a Sigma 40VE. The terrible trigger I feel makes me better with all the other guns and their triggers, IMO...I miss it, though...looking at getting a 5906 again...

I have a SW40F, the first generation model (not SW40C). It is an extremely well made sidearm. Very accurate, low recoil, all around great platform. Made in 1994, before the clinton gun ban, I have 2 original 14 rd mags, and an original 15 rd mag (still looking for original 17 rd mags). Highly recommend, local gun shop in business 30+ years said to the right collector you can make $600 easy.

I'm thinking the OP probably isn't still looking for opinions. Still though I can agree that the Sigma is a pretty good value for the money and S&W pays shipping both ways from what I've heard.

Welce to the forums. Abu.

LOL, I have a SW9VE that I'm happy to keep. I lightened the trigger by removing the torsion spring and the trigger's hard enough for safety's sake.

Never a problem with it and it's gone over 2000 rounds so far. Very comfortable grip and accurate enough to be deadly to BGs.
