Default SD9VE... How are you guys doing?

I haven't been keeping an exact count, but I've got maybe 1,200 rounds through my SD9VE, and the only malfunctions I've ever had with it were from a bag of 50 reloads I got at a gunshow. Extremely impressive gun!! What about you?

Don't have one anymore, sold it

However, when I did have my SW9VE, it was an excellent firearm as in reliability....... No FTF or malfunctions, had about 1K through it when I sold it

Sold it for a Glock

My dad had a Sw9ve. He got a transfer bar from S&W that shortened up the trigger pull. It was a reliable gun, excellent for the price. My brother and I went in together to get him an M&P 9 for Christmas two years ago. Once he got used to the M&P 9 he sold the S&W9VE.

Try a whites trigger stop. I have one on my Kel Tec P11. I can shoot the P11 just as well as my Glock when I slow down and use the trigger stop. Here is an article on how to make a Whites Trigger stop. Super glue is the best way to attach the trigger stop. Use a piece of black rubber from a tie down strap. The roadside is littered with rubber tie down straps.

You don't even have to fire the gun to get used to the trigger stop. I learned to use mine by dry firing the gun.

The easiest way to cut the rubber neatly is to knock the primer out of a 40 cal brass with a nail and a hammer. Then use a hammer to drive the brass through the rubber strap. Push a nail through the primer hole to get the rubber out of the brass.

I would call S&W to see if they have an improved transfer bar for your pistol. The worst thing that can happen is they will say no.

I'm surprised they dont already have that done from the factory....They must know their trigger sucks...Seems like somebody would have told them by now..or they would have taken one to the range and shot it theirselves...?

The VE pistols are like a bastard child to S&W. They claim the heavy trigger is for safety. When they start coming back to the factory because people can't shoot them S&W releases a transfer bar.

S&W has been so troubled over the past 25 years or so I don't trust their products. I like the M&P a lot but I ended up buying a Glock due to misinformation from a S&W certified dealer and my general wariness of S&W.

i find it rather curious that after your comments about S & W products, why you would go in with your brother, to buy your father a S & W pistol.

i'm sorry, but those two posts almost seem to contradict each other. a little clarification might be in order here.

i have shot the SD9VE my father has. it's just one of the pistols he owns for CC and it's not a bad pistol, just not a great pistol. but he also has the discontinued Model 908 and the Model 36 revolver that he alternates with for CC usage. he says he carries he 908 more than the other two because he likes it size the best of the three.

I love the gun, but I agree on the trigger. I've done all the cleaning I can do without altering the gun, and the reset is fairly gritty. EWWW 💚
