Smith & Wesson SDVE Pistol – A Hidden Gem
By Paul Erhardt
Smith & Wesson SDVE Pistol Review and product tech tip.
The Apex Tactical polymer SD Action Enhancement Trigger replaces the factory hinged trigger and features a center mounted pivoting safety. The smooth face trigger with a solid body produces a more comfortable trigger for the shooter’s finger while reducing pre-travel by 20% and over-travel by 10%. The Apex Tactical SD Spring Kit reduces trigger pull weight by approximately 2.0 lbs., helping to smooth the pull while also improving the trigger reset.
These upgrade won’t put the Smith & Wesson SDVE Pistol out ahead of the M&P (an Apex’d one, natch), but they will change your initial opinion of the gun and likely turn it from a gun with a month-to-month lease in your gun safe to one settled in for the long haul.
