    Hi. Relatively new gun owner in my 50's and absolutely not a gunsmith. I do accounting to make money, & know how to change the oil and spark plugs in my car but not much more mechanical beyond that.

    So, I wanted to get a pistol, & not spend a wad of money, & saw that Academy had the SD9VE's for $299. So, I finally managed to get one after stalking Academy stores for weeks. Good pistol, but the trigger wasn't the best so I found the SD Spring Kit at Apex Tacitical (https://apextactical.com/store/product-info.php?pid57.html) for $21 plus shipping. It said anyone with average mechanical ability could install it, and that web site has an installation video, so wth I'll try it. Putting the springs in the top was relatively easy, but getting the trigger pin out and back in was a bit of a challenge. Very happy now with a sweet shooting pistol that costs a total with tax of about $350.

    There are some who feel the SD(9 or 40)VE are the best pistols out there for the money, except perhaps for the Sig SP2022. When Academy didn't have these in stock, I found prices ranging on the internet from $325 to $499) & only the $499 site had any in stock (imagine that!). So I feel very fortunate to get one for the $299 & lucky that I was able to put the bottom part back together.

    If you like the way it handles congrats, you have a cheap and effective pistol. I had a sw40ve and HATED the thing. I traded mine off for a surefire flash light, then traded the light for a norinco 1911. Thats something I can do a trigger job in.

    I have one in 9mm. Good pistol, absolutely 100% reliable.
    Trigger sucks? I practice with mine and would not change it.
    It gets some getting used to. The heavy trigger allows for safe carry without a safety.

    The sigma triggers are like pulling a trailer with no wheels...yea it works but it sure isn't the best way. Shoot a few 1911's and you'll sell the sigma just like I did.
