S&W SD40VE Sight Replacement




What do you think about this video?

PatriotEagle: The trigger on mine is 9.5lbs, which I believe is the factory spec and I like it that way. On the sights, I got the same type you had on yours and I like it alot, but you know, I can understand why some may not.

William Kiene: Thanks.......helpful video

1975acidburn: It isn't the brand of gun that makes any difference it's the skill level of the person shooting it. It's so annoying when people say ex: high points are junk, this sd40 isn't good. I bet not one person would stand there and be shot with it or any gun. Oh wait you can't shoot me with a high point, has to be name brand firearm. 

georgeterro: HOW HAVE THIS SIGHT HELD UP

glenwood89420: I luckily has a spare M&P rear sight from putting night sights on my 40 and immediately put it on my sd9ve. It, along with the the Apex trigger spring kit, are crucial to getting this gun running great!

J Drake: I own two of these one in 9 and the other a 40, I dropped an APEX trigger kit in both and replaced the rear sights with the M&P one. The trigger jobs on both with the recommended polishing dropped the trigger pulls to around 5 lbs. Love them and would recommend them to anyone not wanting to buy into the GLOCK media/marketing hype to buy a cheap made gun at an inflated price.

Nathan Pieters: Hey dude, at least you're not open carrying a hipoint. There's this guy around here that does. He shows it to everybody who talks guns too. lol

Jorge Hernandez: will this work on the SW40VE? 

Jeremiah Dial: Product #: 163458 This is the midwayUSA part number for the B&J Machine P500 that I believe he is using in the video. I also have a S&W SD9VE and I love the gun, I believe someone stated that they put an APEX spring kit in their gun, as did I and it shoots great. I am going to try this sight out and see how it works! Thanks for the great video and the awesome closed caption comments!

Guy Sutton: I have a S&W Sigma 9mm. Great piece. How do I adjust sights? 

john smith: The subtitles are hilarious

Rob Espenship: Do you have the part# from midway USA 

TheYankeeMarshal: I am not sure why you would want it, but you can have it if you do.

MadMetalManiac74: oh, I did not know. I always thought it looked exactly like a glock lol

David Chase: I recently purchased the sd9ve, and plan on replacing the sights with some night sights, and now I know that I can use M&P sights, which I will be ordering tomorrow.

letgouvgod: BJ machine...that's YUGE MAN YUGE!

TheYankeeMarshal: it is not quite as accurate or easy to handle, but it seems every bit as reliable.

Sarin Highwind: Or you could just go buy a Hi-Point ...

TheYankeeMarshal: They are acceptable.

kasper7106: I have a BJ machune but I am not gonna mention your moms name on youtube

trevor starkweather: MnP sights work on the SD,both front and rear..im fixing to order me some for my SD40,t

JollySheepDog1: haha that was nice EL CHEAPO...!!! si senor.

TheYankeeMarshal: Who says I am wearing any.

Edgar Mendoza: Do you have a link for the sight?

TheYankeeMarshal: You could do it with just a nylon hammer or a hammer and a brass punch.

Baconator Green: Everyone knocks the gun for being cheap but I've out shot glocks. 1911s. Pretty much everything.

TheYankeeMarshal: I agree...

finley mcneil: shot it

TheYankeeMarshal: Didn't you pay attention to all the people that said I can't do what I just did?

Josh Gilman: do you like your sd more than a ruger sr40?

TheYankeeMarshal: I have no idea.

TheYankeeMarshal: They put cheap plastic ones on the new guns to cut pricing down. Sort of like another gun we all know.

TheYankeeMarshal: It is called hanging out if you are working.

TheYankeeMarshal: it's Pam.

Travisb85: Thinking about picking one of these up in the 9mm variety

TheYankeeMarshal: So far mine has been flawless. I cannot say anything negative about it.

PileFanning: Do you think anyone will start making custom slide cover plates like the ones you have for your glocks? I want one for my M&P.

cumminsdeiselpower: Hopefully I will be buying one of these guns this week.

Winterstorm308: Any chance you are going to do a range report for this gun?

2007s197: Saw this and did the exact thing! noticed in another of your vids you also hate the polymer guide rod, perhaps a vid on that if you upgrade.great vids keep them coming

TheYankeeMarshal: You can look the part number up on the S&W website and I clean it like I clean any gun,

TheYankeeMarshal: Then you did not buy a SD40VE or you gunshop owner is not very good as a gunsmith. The sights are the same. The dovetails are the same. The replacement sight even has the same part number as the M&P.

faksen13: pretty sure you drive the sight inn/out the wrong way. The dovetail is tapered so the sight should go inn/out from the left side of slide.

TheYankeeMarshal: I have always just centered the front sight then tapped the rear sight into proper position.

speedshifter1981: nice video

Sarin Highwind: Do you have less trouble hitting the hole if there is hair around it?

harry berry: So ... now you have a second sight to sell? Pretty crafty.

Joe Green: Soihitit..... I have and carry both models. Check out my videos.

araw540: i just got one of those it was a cheap gun but it shoots like a dream

TheNivek78: i done the Apex spring kit to my sd9 ve.. It was very easy to put in..and well worth the money..
