Better weekend at the last gunshow 2 weeks ago. People musta got some income tax refunds. Sold a little of everything. Lotta stuff coming in the door, but most were wanting wahat, they had paid for their guns. Well, finally snagged this one off a couple wanting to sell a shotgun for Wally World's price. Passed that, but the handgun was the same price, 2 bills. I offered a Pancho El Cheapo 150 figure at them. We settled for 175. Well, I had not bought anything and did't wanna go home empty handed. These guns are suppose to be an improvement over the SW9VE and SW40VE. the trigger pull is a bit smoother and lighter than my old SW40VE. The slide has grooves for racking up front, some thining of the metal, and the front sight is drift adjustable while the older gun does not have these features. They can both be considered DA/striker fired and strip like a Glock. (Some history of litigation wirh Glock over features in the first SW mod F about patent infrignments, resulting in changes to the model F to V and VE.) The guns have been completely reliable for me. the SD9 on top and old SW40VE below.
