Robert J on Smith & Wesson SD9VE 220025
I purchased mine several weeks ago. While I was waiting for it to arrive I read a fairly critical review - someone who didn't like the trigger and consequently couldn't get the gun to shot the way the wanted it to shoot (presumably they wanted to be able to hit a target accurately). At any rate I was a little nervous about the gun. When it arrived it took me a little while to get used to the trigger - it has a long pull. But, once I started to use a preload on the trigger - i.e. pulling it in about 3/4 of the way in anticipation of the final pull (always pointed at the target of course), my accuracy has gone up considerably - hit 5 / 5 bulls tonight at 7 yards. Could probably now repeat the feat indefinately now that I'm comfortable with the gun. This is a great gun and a tremendous value. ...more
Well made, robust, simple design. Noteworthy is that the SW9VE model does not have the Picatinny rail, whereas the SD9/40 and the SD9/40VE have the Picatinny rail. In many ways, this pistol looks and works a lot like a Glock 17 (e.g., takedown system is the same and reportedly was copied directly from the Glock). This is a reliable, accurate pistol known for having a longish, somewhat stiff trigger. Not that you can't learn to use it, but it takes some practice; the trigger feels more like a revolver than a nice single action pistol like a 1911 or a P-series Sig. The "Sigma" series of S&W pistols had a rocky start and earned a mediocre reputation early, but has gotten better and better as it went along, and if purchased at a good price point, is a great value for the money. ...more
2nd Gun ever owned. Great price. 15 + 1 , 2 mags, Double Action, NO SAFETY (don't think I've ever needed this on safety however.) I've run several thousand rounds through this workhorse without issue. Little big to conceal but I'm 6'1" so it doe not stand out. I'd love to grab a lighter, smaller one for carry conceal. WORKHORSE RELIABLE OH WAIT... SMITH & WESSON PRICELESS...... ...more
Good gun overall, no problems with it so far, but I have not shot more than 50 - 60 rounds at this time because it's not easy finding time to go to the range. The trigger is a bit hard, break down is also a bit more difficult if you don't have very strong hands. Some one a the gun range told me S&W no longer manufactures this model, don't know why. I bought the gun so my wife could learn to shoot, so far it's been a struggle to get her to the range and feel comfortable and safe with it. ...more
Couldn't agree more with Robert M (07/20/2012). I bought mine in 03/2012 because of the price & the S&W name. I have a couple of their outstanding revolvers and didn't think they could make a bad gun. The gun was stone reliable, but accurate, no! A friend with a Glock 27 was embarrassing me until he let me shoot his gun. I realized it wasn't me after that. I got a trigger job, which helped some but not enough. I didn't buy the gun for competitive shooting but at the least I'd like to be able to shoot consistent groups. Mine were low & to the left, which I attribute to the trigger pull, but I couldn't get any groups within 10" at 15 yards. If it weren't a S&W, I'd only give it 2 stars. I'm giving it 3 stars because the S&W name allowed me to sell it without taking a loss. ...more
