YouTube personality, Graham Baates, gives us a video breakdown of the Smith & Wesson SD9 VE.
USA – -(Ammoland.com)- With all the attention on Smith & Wesson’s latest additions like the Shield 2.0 and M2.0 Compact I thought it time we look at their affordable classic, the SD9 VE. After years of production and a handful of evolutions, the SD9 VE remains a mid-sized handgun packing 16+1 rounds of 9mm and available for around $250. Sometimes, we get lost looking at the new and forget the tried and true.
One thing that impressed me right off the bat was the construction quality. It’s not that I had low expectations of Smith & Wesson, rather that I expected them to be like many other makers and let their tooling get sloppy over the years. As shown in the photos below, my example might as well have had serial number 1.
Other features match the modern standards for popular handguns.
