    I bought a used SD9VE, for a whole $225. No box, had 3 new 16 rd mags, fobus holster in bag. Looked like 1 mag fired through the gun. Found a S&W locking box with lock and papers for MP -9mm. Won on auction for $15. Called S&W, they sent out owners manual and looked like the same one as MP.
    I have fired mine to the tune of 500 rds, cleaned and lubed, no issue. Stiff trigger yes! i can deal with it as still shoot my M-10 Revolver(S&W Mp-4in). people bash them, but mine's ok. its a nightstand gun, no biggie. I like the 2 tone SS slide, Poly frame.

    SW...no roll pins on the extractor, so it's easier to completely disassemble and clean...BUT, if you want to hang accessories on the rail, you should go with the SD...the SD is on sale right now, for only $249 with free shipping at Smoky Mountain...

    I've got one of those, and a couple of the sd9ve. For me they are the perfect truck/beater gun. Reliable, cheap, and accurate.

    Wow, I am quickly finding out that if you need any S&W repair/parts, you pretty much have to pay outrageous Ebay prices and take your chances with used stuff or send the whole thing into S&W so they can install the part for you. That's the only way they'll do it. This really burns me. Why is S&W so tight on parts availability? Lawyers? You can pretty much go to any city in America and find Glock parts. I won't own a gun that doesn't have parts readily available, not going to send it in and then wait weeks for it to come back.

    His last thought was probably: 'Damn, this trigger is hard to pull, what the....'

    Check numrich. I don't know if they have those parts but I find a lot of the 3rd gen pistols there

    I had the .40 cal. It was all good...until the striker failed. Don't wanna wait that long for factory repair, so I bought a new striker from Numrich. Test fired it and sold it.
    Good gun, just don't dry fire it like you would a Glock.
