travisp11: I fired three different brands of new, brass-cased ammo the first time I
took my SD9VE out. I even made sure to give it a thorough cleaning and lube
as instructed in my manual and it jammed like crazy? FTFs, FTEs, failure to
return to battery, etc. But, all of that ended after I swapped out the
plastic guide rod and spring with an aftermarket Galloway rod/spring combo.
Now, it performs like a champ. If kinda made me upset that I watch all of
these reviews and just about none of them complain about the issues that I
had. Maybe it was just a new gun break in phase or a lemon guide rod but
I'm happy now with it.
Kane16802: accuracy would be much better with an apex spring assembly kit and s&w
m&p-c night sights, how much would it cost to have a gunsmith do this?
scott6154: As of September 2014 they are as low as $299 on sale in some Phoenix gun
shops. Average price is about $349. Very decent gun for under $400.
lerch400block: I love my glocknwesson. 1200rds no major problems.
Dustin Zimmerman: im looking at picking up the .40 around the first of the year. might try
and figure out how to get both the 9mm and the .40 since im hearing such
Jobe Jahova: I rented one of these at my local range, and here is my impression. It
looked like all heck and abused and dirty and beat but the operation and
trigger still felt new. I put the cheapest 9mm reload (Atlanta Arms,
something like that) through it without a single malfunction. That same
brand ammunition in 380 would have 3 failures per 50 rounds on a Sig P238.
Really, the SD9VE is a good gun. Probably the best semi-auto you can buy
new for $300-$400.
The only real drawback to this handgun is the muzzle flip. It tends to
flip just a hair bit more than expected, requiring more effort to sight for
the following shot. However, it is light weight and easy to hold and shoot
for extended periods.
chris Ruiz: Sorry im new to guns whats that black thing called he used to reload the
mags??? Am i gona need one before i buy mine??
scrmngchicken403: I have an SW9VE Sigma. It's probably one of the last runs before the SD
came out. Had only one issue with it, which was traced back to the
ammunition I was using. It runs flawlessly. And I get grief because it's my
EDC. I may pick up an SD40VE in the not-too-distant future just because...
lerch400block: Ain't the prettiest girl at the dance. But she dances nice.
DrJuice1: 15:41 rapid fire on the pot, awesome
James C: I love my SD9VE. I've put about 2,500 rounds through it. Everything from
Tula and Wolf ammo to Hornady 137gr Critical Duty and 147gr JHP and never
had a problem. Another thing not mentioned is the backwards compatibility
with the magazines. I actually got a few of the SW9 mags and the work
perfectly in my SD9. I also got a great deal on mine, new in box, 2 16
round mags for $275. I would recommend this gun to anyone who is looking
for a good gun at a great price.
hawgdawg13: So I just bought this gun for my fiancé but since we love in the brilliant
state of California it has a weird mag safety feature that, while isn't a
bad idea, means that when u need to clean and take apart u have to put the
mag in to dry fire as u pull apart. Anyone else have to do this? Also in
terms of comparison, we contemplated this vs a comparable m&p and a
comparable Springfield. Any thoughts on that? Thanks guys! Love the videos
@hickok45! U r the only gun review-er I trust due to the honesty!
Jose A. Garcia Jr.: Think Im going to out my order in from buds, unless you have any other
online stores you recommend me to take a look at or that has a good deal.
Thanks again in advanced, big fan!
giz5000: Such a great gun! I have two of them! 2,000rds plus with not a single
ParasidicGeneration: love mine never had a problem
Andre Stinnett: I got the sd40ve love it.my friend wants to buy it im feeling 50/50 on
beags1979: Seeings how you have reviewed both the SD and Shield, I was wondering which
gun you feel is the better overall gun? I'm able to get a shield for a
little more then the SD, which in turn is making it very difficult to pick
which one to get. SD for about $267 and Shield $297. This will be my first
pistol, so I'm trying to get the best overall gun/deal for these prices.
Jett Blast: Its currently $ 299.99 @ Academy Sports 2 magazines
William Kiene: For the average person this is a great value and an easy to operate pistol
for self defense. Under $400 usd with 2 magazines. If you can afford a
better pistol then I would look at higher end pistols too. These videos are
j20062006: I got my sd9ve about 2 weeks ago and already put 600+ rounds in it with
just 2 visits to the gun range. Reliability is a 10/10, NOT even one
failure to fire / malfunction. I ran cheap ammo all the way to more
expensive ammo, brass or aluminum casing and no issues. On the other hand
a buddy of mine had a lil ruger 9mm compact, soon as we got to the aluminum
casing bullets it failed right away and jammed. Some guns are picky on
ammo but not the SD9VE. Can't beat this SD9VE (Glock Clone) for $300 + tax
if you know where to shop.. Now the Next gun I buy will be a Canik TP9 SA
which is the version 2 of the tp9 when they become available.
mayito8581: $289.99 for the SD40 VE brand new at Academy in Fort Worth Texas.
allen sharako: This guy is awesome....
DENNIS Broadie: I PAID 379 PLUS TAX FOR MY YESTERDAY NEW...DID I GET BEAT
Sergio elisalde: I got one works very well at target practice i would recommend.
Jason Mack: Love your videos hickok45! Please keep 'em coming.
legionar200: Can someone tell which of these handguns are better: SD9VE or IWI Jericho
Myavrick: I'm glad I bought this gun before I saw your video. Thanks for the
confidence builder. I am a avid long gun shooter but not a handgun man.
Seeing this will put away the thoughts its just cheap gun and if I miss
it's not because the guns not that good. I found over the years people love
to blame the equipment not the man behind it.
Robert Pavelea: I can't belive the price in relation to quality on this thing. And the
cherry on top? It looks damned nice. The machining, stainless steel
barrel/slide, comfort and ergonomics, at 319? I hope that S&W, in
particular with their M&P series, becomes world-respected. Because right
now, they are producing quality and what people and law
Take Detour: I would buy this Gun for sure.
210gnx: I like this guy! Lol subscribed!
Nephilim Stench: It's an excellent handgun for the money. Goes bang everytime!
Twisted86: If you were to carry this gun would you have it on CON 0 or CON 3? Since
there is no safety (trigger has a safety but I don't count it as a reliable
one) what would your thoughts be to one in the chamber?
mike mims: How many feet is it to your gong?
Anthony Betker: I own the sd40 ve. Never had an ussue with it. Love it like i love my glock
Skip Wilson: I wish Glocks had the 'chamber hole indicator' instead of the marginal LCI
indicator on the extractor...
Daniel H: Hey what's the black thing you used to reload you S&w sd9ve 9mm
Colin Cross: Thanks for the video,I just got mine a couple weeks ago. It's nice to be
reassured that that I made a sound investment. Ps I got mine for$299.00 in
Mishawaka Post: I just bought one for $299.95 at a local gun store here in northern
Bwall1215Industries: I have tried several times to get my sd9 to hang up and not go all the way
into battery when I release the slide to chamber a round but it won't do it
! Amazing! This gun is such a reliable firearm.
Shawn Love: this gun is now 289 at academy sports
Charlie Haskins: Love your Sherpa shirt. Looks warm. Where can I get one?. Great Vidio.
Joe Newton: I had one of those for a few years, great economy pistol, name brand, hi
cap, never had a jam. Only got rid of it to buy a taurus pt145. Have you
reviewed the pt145 ? Ive been searching, i have a first generation, great
Tbboltz92: I picked one up yesterday for 335. I like the heavy trigger for duty use.
About the only complaint I have for this weapon is that its two tone.
dl dixon: I have the 9 and I love it. have had it for about a year. the gun is nice
and very reliable. I enjoyed your video.
machineguntongue: These look great in two tone. And it does not cost extra. Amazing price on
a solid pistol it seems. Has anybody done long term reliability testing
like they do on Glocks? Are they solid internally?
Bluesky: If people don't want to buy a Hi point C9 then a SW SD9VE is the next
Aaron Hoffman: I own sd9ve love it learned about on your channel thanks
Mario Rodriguez: I have put about 600 through mine. It does well. I would love to see a
second video on this from Hickok45 .
SniperSam: The trigger pull is the issue on this make. I love it though. I have not
bought one....yet, but I plan to. I have the 4006 and want a smaller cal. I
had the Sigma 40 and I regret selling it. It was super accurate. It stung
when I shot it but none the less.
Colton Carter: Has anyone noticed any problems with the sights on this gun? Mine seems to
shoot low left. thinking about sending it back to get new sights and
sighted in again.
