Well I didn't Care for it and my wife found it atrocious to shoot. I think for the money plus the added cost and time of polishing, filing, sanding, ordering New springs, cutting New springs, that a Sig Sauer SP2022 would be a better fit for slightly over or around $400 bucks. Sa/Da, manual decocker, and equiped with night sight , I paid $429

gunrunner If 4 bucks and 30 minutes is NOT worth it if you feel its needed , then spend the extra money for the sig. Most of use don't need decockers or want to deal with 2 differnent trigger pulls also most practice some kinda of point shooting so your still takeing in the whole area. Enjoy your sig.

I have the sw40ve. The gun is junk you would have better luck throwing it at some one. I've run about 650 rounds through it and failure to feeds are every other shot and now it has a failure to fire problem. My current gun is a springfield xdm40 3.8. Love it! Sig is another good option but look around there's a lot of other great guns out their.

Reading other reviews, it seems that maybe you have the exception to the rule? Everybody so far is unanimous on the trigger...sux, and reliable/accurate for a $299 gun.

You try to have it serviced by chance?

bountyhunter2011 How about talking to a CS person at S&W and let them fix it. Tell them the trigger is also very gritty and when it comes back it will be way better. Change the 4 dollar stricker spring to a lighter wolf and it will then be a great shooter.

Would you also whine a about a 1000 dollar 1911 and just buy another or try to work out the issues with the manufactor???. That also happens .

Maybe I was a little harsh on what I said. The gun is accurate and the trigger pull does suck but when you shoot it enough you get used to it. As far as getting it serviced I have not I'm going to send it back and get it fixed.
Hardluk1:: in my eyes it's unreliable whether I get it fixed or not. If it happened once it's could happen agian and that don't sit well with me, if I need it it better shoot. As far as a 1000 1911 if it done the same thing I would get it fixed but I would also buy another.

If you don't have confidence in the weapon, that's understandable.

That the problem is I don't have the confidence in the weapon and I won't recommend it if I don't. Im going to get it fixed its not a bad gun to shoot but not going to grab it in time of need. For a little bit more money I would go with the m&p line.

I also have a 40ve. Had it for two months now. I love it. Carry every day in a black hawk holder. Put only 200-300 rounds through it but only had 1 jam. Only reason for Tue jam was because The round was takin out and put back in a whole bunch before I was able to go shooting. Learned a good lesson that day. Other than that, with Tue hard trigger pull, I don't mind it. I'm a big guy, 240lbs 6ft 1, so The 8 to 12 lb trigger pull don't bother me at all.
