SW40VE - I Hope it doesn't suck.

Picked one up yesterday from a friend of a friend that was in need of some cash. I figured for $250 it should be worth it. Came with an extra magazine, 300rnds and plastic ammo can and a lefty holster that i'll never use.

Thing looks brand new, owner claimed only 200 rnds through it and it looks it.

My last forray into 40cals was less than impressive, but i guess if nothing else it can be a throwdown gun for the jeep.

The trigger on this things is a ton, but it is very smooth. I already have some new springs on the way to fix that pesky 12lb trigger pull.

I think this thing is finally coming together. Still Needed: drive shafts, frame mount rails...then done son! For a while...

I've got one too. My dad carried it as a Sheriff Deputy. Despite the heavy trigger safety, these guns are a blast to shoot, and pretty damn accurate. Love the .40, especially in this platform. Fairly comfortable to shoot. I love mine.

I was already replacing the plastic guide rod and the new striker spring was only $3.50, I felt like I could spend the money

I'm gonna pull that extra pigtail spring as well.

So I pled the pigtail spring when I broke the pistol down for a thorough cleaning. It did lighten the trigger up a bit.

I took it to the range with my CCW and put 100rnds through it for a little test run. It still took some getting used to. I was steadily working my up the target at 7yds. Function was flawless. It looks like a keeper. Can't wait to get the new striker spring in it. It should he real close to where I want it.

It's definitely a step up from the original gen 1 Sigma line in fit and finish. A buddy of mine had one and it was a total POS. He sent it back to S&W twice and it never did run consistently enough to consider reliable.

I'm pretty happy with this one and ordered a rail conversion for that oddball accessory slot. I wish there was enough material in the frame to just dremel it out and sculpt a standard rail, but they molded it pretty tight to the exterior dimensions. I may still round the front a little though. Somethign about the blockyness of it is unappealing.
