The trigger pull on my S&W Sigma Series SW40VE was very high. Did some searching, and it seems to be a common issue. Called Frank Smith @ LSG MFG who does warranty work on S&W pistols. Told him my issue, even though my pistol is several years old. He gave me the shipping instructions on the phone. One week later (today) my pistol is back to me all for free! The new trigger pound is between 5-6 pounds! Have to love customer service like that! Can't wait to test it out tomorrow at the range! Woo Hoo! Darren

I reduced both my 40SW and 9MM Sigmas to 5-6 lbs. I regularly outshoot my buddy with his fancy and expensive 9MM XD. More and more folks are doing the mods and using the Sigmas for IDPA matches. What did your gun smith change?Brant

Free!!!! Frank treated it as warranty work! And it always has shot awesome! As far as change, it says "replace sear housing, heavy trigger pull" Since he has those special parts from Smith & Wesson, I know they do some other work as well.Darren

You did better than I did with S&W. I sent in my 629 CL DX a few years ago because the timing was off and they told me that it was because the gun was fired with "hot loads" so the warranty wouldn't cover it. I told them that the only loads that had ever been fired thru it were UMC 180gr soft points and winchester white box 240 grain soft points. The guy on the other end of the line said "those winchesters are hot". It's a factory load for crying out loud!
My guns are mine, they aren't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like. So I guess the government is **** out of luck.

I didn't call S&W directly. At least they never responded to my emails. Instead I did some google searching and found somebody else that posted about Frank Smith. Figured it wouldn't hurt to call the guy. If you still have that pistol and want his contact information let me know!Darren
