Did this video help you?

jim jam: i hope your the responsible type´╗┐

Yung King: Whea uy frm in NC bro im in Raleigh n im fin2 kop dis s00n az i turn 21 wat waz da name a da shop uy said´╗┐

Randy Knapp: The original Sd came out in 2010 they have a black slide and steel night sights. The new one you have S&W cut some corners to save money. With the plastic white dot sights and the silver slide. The original SD is more expensive. I have one and I love it. Wolf gun spring makes a guide rod and spring kit that is Steel and you have to order the one for the Sigma 4 inch model. It will make a world of difference in accuracy.

DFrnkln06: Ironically I bought this same pistol the same day as the Sandy Hook shooting and Im stationed in Colorado and this state is open carry and like you said I'm surprised that somebody didn't have a pistol on them. It's my first pistol and I love it. I go to the range whenever I have time.

nonyabiznezzzzz: hey good review, i got this same gun from cheaper than dirt,,,,only thing i dont like about your comments is the tul ammo ive personally seen it jam up in my buddys ar,,go to lucky gunner and they got better stuff for the same price as tul,,,other than that good job and god bless...

The AK Guru: Well Ron I can only think of a couple things that could be the problem. Though it is a Glock knock off, its not as easy to chamber a round as it would be in a glock. u are simply not pulling the slide back far enough with enough force. Glocks really dont need alot of force to rack the slide. These SDVE guns are a little harder with the recoil spring its very stiff. I have never had a jam or a malfunction with mine while firing or racking the gun. But u do have to get use to the stiffness it.

fatjeezy77: Ay Blake wright how much u pay for it? I can't find it lower than $379

ron34422: Blue, I got some range time in...first 25 rounds went fine...next 75 not so fine...it never mis-fired, never failed to eject but many times it failed to feed the round...If I loaded the mag and released the slide it would not feed sometimes...If I bumped the slide with my left hand it would load the round...I was using Remington ammo...will try another brand...I'll give S&W a call...It shot well when it shot...trigger is good..liked the sights...liked the grip...thanks

johndohio: Thanks man ! I was deciding between this and Taurus PT840. It's 319.00 here in Houston Texas. I've heard good reviews on both but this is 50 bucks cheaper

ron34422: Great review...I just bought a SD40 VE yesterday...haven't fired it yet but I have a couple of questions for you...the first time I tried to chamber a round it jammed...tried it again and jammed again... I found that If I pull and release the slide at the same speed as my Glock 17 it jams...If I pull and release quickly and let the slide "slam" it loads the round...also with 14 rounds in the mag I can't pull the slide back...is all this because a it's a new gun?

Garrett Manes: Getting mine once the gun show hits Vegas on December 15. You're gettin me all excited and crap. Haha

scopapa33: Good info, thanks man. I looked at this gun for about an hour tonight and need to go back and just buy the damn thing!

alexancia5279: My experience as a first time gun buyer was awesome! This will depend on customer service, where you buy it and such of course. I got it for $350 out the door. As soon as I got it home I cleaned it with Hoppe's 9. Yes the manual does tell you to clean it before you shoot it. I picked it over the M&P's simply because it's cheaper. I've read many reviews on the SD9VE and many people are having very good luck with them. So I went with it :)

Taylor Hastings: Good gun 0 problems thus far.. Good review

Varthrias: Just got that little beauty. So cant wait to shoot it!

69gunnr: Hey bro just so you know with any newer gun you can dry fire forever and not do any damage to the striker in your gun. With the heavy trigger the best thing to do is dry fire practice alot and youll get good trigger control without spending a dime for ammo. Peace man. Im a Sigma SW40VE owner. I love these guns. Enjoy your time at the range and have fun with your gun... Gunnr

Josh Tooley: people complain about the heavy trigger pull, it's not that bad, the glock 17 has the same trigger pull, i prefer this smith to a glock because it's not marked up, it's damn near the same gun except you aren't paying 200 extra dollars bc the gun comes from austria. besides an 8 pound trigger pull in a self defense situation isn't much, when your adrenaline starts going you won't notice it and even on the range it's not much, but i would not reccomend it for competition.

romac1314: Thanks for the review! How is the gun faring these days? How many rounds through it now? I'm in the market for a new carry gun and have been back and forth a million times and I think I'm settling on the S&W SDVE guns. While the trigger is a tad heavier, I prefer the feel of it after handling one over the Glocks/Sigs etc I've held, and it's even better that it's a solid $200+ cheaper. I was dead set on a 9mm, but they've been out in 9mm everywhere I've tried while the .40 is available readily.

POPJack1717: dude, I am about to make MY first purchase too. PLEASE let me know you experience as a first time gun buyer. ALSO, i want to knw why you chose this gun over the regular M&Ps.??

POPJack1717: GOOD REVIEW. THIS is a gun that i will be considering in my first time gun buy in a few days. I am considering the shield, the S&W9c, and now this gun. Question, why did you get this gun over the regular M&Ps????

nonyabiznezzzzz: ohh and what makes this gun better than a glock is that its made here in the USA....we gotta support our country when we can.. peace

Bobby Reay: I just got mine on Saturday. It's my first gun and I can't wait to pop off a few tomorrow at the range.

alexancia5279: I really like your review, I like how you point out how stupid it is how people rack their slide a hundred times when they reassemble their pistols, I agree it's kinda unnecessary. On another note, I am about to make my very first gun purchase tomorrow!!! It's going to be the same as yours except in 9mm. I'm so excited :)

Robert Hasman: if it's a 9mm it's an sd9ve not a sd40ve..

BigBellyCrewNM: thank you great review helped my purchase of the .40 sd40ve

deange: Congrats on a no nonsense down to earth review. I am looking forward to your next review. Thanks.

guitarzNgunz: Good review man, my friend is getting one of these in 9mm and wants to know a good OWB holster for it any ideas? What do you use?

Jay Con: Good gun good review ... I hope to see you shoot this bad boy in your next vid peace

raw157: Great video! Thanks

Joe Green: What do you mean you have 5 permits but not a concealed permit?

Joe Green: By the way, the M&P does come with a larger clip than the 10 round now. The new one's hold 15+1 which is 1 more than the sd40ve, but I love this gun. The 2 tone is super sexy. LoL

ALLToyota911: Glock doesn't come with night sights!!!!

Jordan Garretson: Lol...plink plink plink

The AK Guru: Thanks man. Check out my channel i have a video on a good holster. Blackhawk

LuckySprink696: Nice gun I just got one last week and went shooting yesterday 100 Round no malfunctions

MrSo47: Good video! But this configuration isn't the only one. It also comes with a blued slide. Great price also!

Blake Wright: GREAT review! Just purchased mine last week...should be able to pick it up this weekend. Cannot wait!

Joe Green: Pretty good review man. Thanks for sharing it with us. I totally agree with you about it being the same quality as a Glock, but you don't have to pay a ton of money for the name. Congrats on your new piece. Be safe.

Mike Francis: I have recently purchased both the 9 and 40 in this model I have put 100 rounds through the 40 and about 150 through the 9 with no issue with either gun the only thing I would recommend is a mag loader I had a hard time loading the last round in both guns. Over all I think these are great little guns for the price I got mine for about $280 each.

The AK Guru: I WILL HAVE A FOLLOW UP VIDEO SOON ON FIRING THIS GUN. PLEASE CHECK IT OUT I WILL KEEP U GUYS POSTED. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF ANY OF MY INFO IS OFF. THANKS

The AK Guru: and yes I really do believe in buying American made products. REMEMBER PROTECT YOUR 2nd amendment RIGHTS!!

Funnypandalonies: a lotta good reviews on this gun. Gad I have one. all the negatives I've heard have been very minor. it's all based on personal preference. but thanks again for the review.

The AK Guru: @SHANE18LANE THANKS FOR THAT INFO I WAS WONDERING THAT MY SELF.

grnhell484: Just got the same one. Great review- in light of the recent politics, I like how you highlight your choice to be a responsible owner and you sincere intent on being a responsible citizen. Glad to know there are people out there that don't desire to not be helpless. Good job and cheers!

ICEN: 4:32 achievement unlocked glock knock off... Seriously I herd your xbox achievement unlocked

The AK Guru: THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR COMMENTS AND IM GLAD THE VIDEO WAS HELPFUL. HOPE Y'ALL ENJOY THIS GUN AS MUCH AS I DO!

Shane18Lane: @LuvnMyLife84 VE = Value Enhanced. I actually just got mine yesterday. Fingers cross that I'm happy with it. I love the feel and looks so hope it shoots well.

J Jeter: Hey Thanks for the info BestBlue. You hit every point that I needed to know before buying this gun. S&W should send you something for posting this video because it is the reason I'm going to buy and Im sure this will help other people who are interested like myself along the way! Thanks Bro

ICEN: My first gun I shot was a .45 and honestly I was shocked at people saying not to get high calibers buy crapty little calibers first, I think its BS because I was thinking .45s ect are going to have this high recoil people claim, first time I shot it I said wow people must be very weak because its not even that bad, I personally think its retarded to say get a craptier caliber first I call that wasted money, get what you want not what other people want.

napolesalain: i had a sigma 40, i shot close to 1k rounds and its still going strong
