Smith & Wesson SW40GVE .40SW Green/Matte, 14 round 
by Robert W
Date Added: Tuesday 02 December, 2008
I bought this pistol even after reading all the reviews about the downright nasty trigger pull. So I knew what I was getting myself into. The gun shoots great, but I can see absolutely no reason to have a trigger that heavy. Some have cited safety as the reason for the design, but the pull is truely ridiculous, even at that. I managed to find a lighter striker spring from a very well known catalog and on-line gun parts retailer for about $7. It is a piece of cake to swap out. The trigger still seems a bit on the heavy side, but is more than acceptable. Before the spring replacement, my forearm would be sore from the workout the trigger gave me after a few clips of ammo. Factoring in price, this is truely a 5 star gun if it weren't for the trigger. Unfortunately, S & W has a potential winner on its hands, but without that slight trigger refinement, it will probably relagated to only having a cult following of die hard fans who choose to turn a blind eye to it (and those who choose to sink just a few more bucks in for a spring ).
If you can take apart and put back together a pistol, or are mechanically inclined in the slightest bit, I would recommend this pistol. Just buy the replacement spring, too. It takes more time to check your mail, open up the envelope to take out the spring and get you pistol out of the safe than it does to change the spring. I am now considering the 9mm, as well. Or at least I was. It appears as though our last election has caused prices to jump $40 in just the few weeks I've had it. Still a bargain compared to a Glock (not that I don't want one of those, too).
