Hubby has the SD9VE, it was the best pistol we could afford at the time we got it. The trigger he has hated, BUT he is still 6-8 inch groups last time at the range. That is head, neck zone on the target. It has been flawless firing wise, never a failure, and so that part is great. I have no doubt I could pick it up and the weapon fires each time. Are there "better" guns out there, sure. Are you going to get one for the same price point --no way.

I paid 20 each for my triggers from Apex. they made a lot of difference. still not the greatest triggers but when I got used to it, it was a great gun. The sd fits my hand better than my friends glock and I have pretty much the same groups with both guns. I got a 9 for my wife and a 40 for myself and paid less than my friend did for his glock. They are not the best but well worth the money.

I recently bought one and tried to fix the trigger pull with a video on youtube. Found out my new model doesn't have the extra two springs in the area where they r in the older models. Has anyone seen this any help would be appreciated.

Don't hold me to it but I believe the newer models have to have replacement springs, you cannot simply remove the pigtail spring as they don't have one.

I bought mine new in April and did the spring kit shortly after..definitely worth doing.
