Smith & Wesson SW40VE .40SW Black/Stainless, 10 rd Calif LEGAL
[120023]
$313.00
by Andrew R Date Added: Tuesday 11 January, 2011
I bought this gun last week and and received it today. Shot it a couple of times this afternoon and it seemed accurate at 20 yards or so. The trigger is a little strange, long travel and it takes a significant amount of weight to discharge. Also, I have an issue charging the pistol. I can lock back the slide with a loaded mag in it and press the release and the round will chamber. BUT, if I have a loaded mag in it I can not just pull the slide back and release it by hand to load one, it jams up on me and I have to flip it over so the cartridge falls out... Meaning, in a target shooting situation, the action is fine, it will just take a few extra seconds to pull back, lock the slide then hit the release to load the gun. In an actual self defense situation, those extra seconds could make a huge difference, not being able to charge the weapon and fire in one fluid motion. It could also be operator error on my part and if I took the time to properly lube the weapon that all might change. For the price though I am happy with it, just would stake my life on it.
