Smith & Wesson’s new SD40 VE™, with its distincive two-tone finish, is a semi-automatic pistol, chambered in 40S&W. This new offering features Smith & Wesson’s SDT™ - a Self Defense Trigger for optimal, consistent pull from the first round to the last.
The picatinny-style rail gives you the option of adding accessories such as a light or laser. Another new feature is the aggressive front and back strap texturing, which provides a more secure grip, while still maintaining comfortability. Overall, the new Smith & Wesson SD40 VE™ combines value with enhanced features to deliver top-grade performance in a reliable option for home and personal protection.
This is a well made firearm. Probably is going to resist corrosion very well. It is easy to take down and clean. But: The trigger is not smooth. As the trigger is pulled the travel back is skittery. It stops then slips stops then slips all the way back unless you jerk the trigger which is maybe ok when it's a rush situation, but if you ever want to squeeze one slowly and accurately it grabs and slips numerous times while traveling back and this takes your aim off target. I tried every lube I had it didn't change at all. Maybe if the pounds to pull weren't so strong that may help but I decided I didn't want a firearm that had to be cobbed up and I sold it for 100$. I fired about five or six hundred rounds through it. Smith and Wesson offered to take it in and do something for it but I'm glad I won't be fighting with that trigger ever again.
The Smith and Wesson SD40 VE is a solid performer. Do not let the Value Enhanced tagline fool you. This weapon is now my primary sidearm and with 10+ years in the security field. I have no problem with this choice.
love it. I am going to get my wife 1 too.
Arrived earlier than expected, new in box with everything it should have. Very happy with the product. The trigger is perfect for home defense! Really good quality for the reasonable price. Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore made it an easy purchase with good dealer selections near my home.
I know this pistol has been out on the market for several years and I have been looking to purchase one for a year now. I had this pistol found locally for $325.00 and went back to shop to purchase it and they were out of stock on it. Waited almost a month and a half for it to return to stock and gave up. Decided to purchase it from Sportsmansoutdoorsuperstore.com. Very glad that I did!! The pistol arrived 3 days later at my FFL and it was just as I had hoped. PERFECT!! I saved $25.00 on the purchase plus NO TAX!! My FFL charge is $20.00. Great experience. Would advise anyone purchasing a firearm to go with Sportsmansoutdoorsuperstore!!
Will definitely purchase from Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore again. Customer Service was excellent over the phone answering a few questions that I had. No tax, Free 2-Day Shipping and saved $80 by purchasing the gun online. Gun is a great starter gun, trigger is fine for me although many online reviews say its too heavy. Apex Kit can fix that.
