I am going to have to do this to my 40V. I like the gun except for the trigger pull.

Thanks

I just polished the sear and firing pin catch surfaces with some white rouge and the Dremel tool. I also polished the firing pin block (the circle thing on the inside of the slide) and the lever that sticks up from the receiver to engage it. Just polish till its nice and shiny and then stop (no need to take too much off)

HOLY FUCK is this bitch smooth and crisp

oh and my recoil spring guide just came apart time for a steel one

One of the best places to buy mags is a place called CDNN Investments. Search them on the internet. Their prices are the best I've found.

Doc, thought you'd just like to know that your 'tip' is still helping owners of crappy pistols throughout the world. I PM'd a link to this thread to a guy on Glocktalk, and here's what he said about it afterward:

Well, it's difficult to compare the "new" trigger to a Glock's, because, it's still not a Glock, of course. I always describe the stock Glock trigger as having two stages, the "take up" which is that pretty light, quarter-inch or so initial pull. That's followed by the stiffer "let off" which, isn't "crisp" by any means, but seems to have a pretty good break.

The SW9VE's trigger pull is long and pretty consistent throughout its travel. The heavy original trigger seemed smooth to me, probably because any roughness was hidden by all that spring force. Now that it's lighter, it feels a little less smooth, but not terrible. I'm sure a little polishing in the right places would help a lot, but I didn't bother. I did give the dry internals a drop of good synthetic lube.

Have you ever shot a Glock with a NY trigger spring/3.5 connector combo? That would be pretty close to what the fixed SW feels like.

tell him to polish the ummm.....striker release.. safe.. fireing pin block? ....shit the little "disk" in the bottom of the slide and the corresponding lever that hits it when the slide is on the weapon
those are usually rough and people can not fuck up anything by doing it

oh and Roxy could ya move this to the outdoor forum

ok remove the slide like normal, push the rear pin out above your grip.
remove the sear/group/block thingie from the back of the frame. it may take some wiggleing but comes right out in one piece.

no be carefull not to loose shit and remember where stuff goes. There is one pin and should be 2-3 springs in there (model depending) there will be a "pigtail" style spring at the bottom over the only pin .

remove the pin and throw out that spring it serves nothing but to increace the trigger pull.
now from what i have seen in the diagrams the newer Sigma's had 2 coil springs in there while mine has only one. you will need only the long skinny spring in there for it to work correctly

it will drop 4-5lbs off the trigger pull
THANK YOU DOC!!!

This was so fawking easy, everyone should do it!!!

Does this trigger fix work for the newer pistols? I'm thinking about buying one in the next few days, but since this thread is 4 years old, I figured I'd ask before I did.

Go ahead and pick one up. I'm sure that there's plenty of work that can be done to turn one into a decent gun.

fix for sigma 40ve

Man what a post. You just saved my pops from selling his 40ve. This was a gun with terrible trigger, now a nice short 5 or so pound trigger pull. Cant thank you enough, you are the man.
happy new year

P.S. This is Pops and the pull is as very similar to the Glock30. I can't believe how easy the change was, with the help of your pictures.

The factory's heavy trigger pull is the biggest complaint on every blog I've read on the 40VE and more people would love their pistol uncondionally if they knew about this amazing secret.
