S&W SD9VE 16+1 9mm 4"
by Charles B Date Added: Tuesday 26 February, 2013
I owned a S&W Sigma SW9VE for a few years. I sold it last year because I just had too many pistols. I actually liked the SIGMA as it was always reliable--accurate---never malfunctioned in over 500 rounds. I now own the M&P9 and the M&P9C (along with Glock 17 and 19 and Ruger SR9 and SR9C). I purchased the SD9VE more out of curiosity than need. What pulled me in was that compared to the old Sigma it was very attractive--they did a fine job on the looks of the gun----it certainly makes my Glocks look like the fat ugly one at the end of the bar----- looks has never been a Glock characteristic.

I ordered the gun from Bud's where I have purchased 6 handguns over the past few years (including through the Police Supply). As usual the customer service was nothing short of superb-----always kept me informed every step of the way and delivered rather quickly given today's busy marketplace

I inspected the SD9VE and found no flaws--it was actually very very clean. Everything seemed to function that way it is supposed to function. I took it apart and cleaned and lubricated it. Today I went to the local indoor range and fired 100 rounds through it with no malfunctions. The pistol was as accurate as it could possibly be--the sights are apparently well aligned right from the factory. The night before I exercised the trigger for a while doing some dry fires to loosen it up------it seemed a little stiff and gritty but manageable. After firing about 50 rounds the trigger smoothed out and it felt real good----a little longer pull than my M&Ps--but the trugger pressure appeared nearly the same--seems they have in fact improved from the original Sigma-------I do not think the average shooter needs to do anything to make trhis trigger better--just shoot it for a while.

I have to say that dollar for dollar this gun is a great value--it has everything the average home defense person needs. I have had over 23 years of military service in the USMC and have had more than my fair share of of nop-recreational shooting--I think you can trust your life to S&W SW9VE
