S&W SD40VE Sight Replacement




What do you think about this video?

shooting guru: what is a good ammo and grain to use in the SD40VE?

ItsMrDeathWish: i have the sd9ve i wanted to put a red dot for the rear sight is that possible or can i omly change the iron sight?

Red October: Are the sights for the 40 & 9 M&P the same for me to put on my SD9VE?

Mike Hunt: pinche weido 

Service Department: This mod does not work the same for the SD9VE as it did in the video for the SD40VE, I have an SD9VE and ordered from Smith & Wesson the rear, blue steel, M&P 9mm sights. They arrived with NO set screw, AND upon removing my original polymer sights i noticed that there was NO set screw hole tapped into my slide to secure the sights and adjust etc. I hated the crapty polymer sights so much that i swapped them anyway, and the M&P sights do fit so tight without the screw that they dont move a bit, but without the set screw i cannot adjust elevation, windage, etc. The M&P sights are a world of difference, and for $11.00  you cant beat it, but i just wanted to make a post letting everyone with an SD9VE know that the swap is not as graceful as shown.

Jelani Ellis: I HAVE A ? DID YOU CHANGE THE SLIDE ON YOUR .40 BECAUSE I JUST BOUGHT THE SAME MODEL AND MINE HAS A  LOADED WHEN UP RED BAR INDICATOR ON THE SLIDE WHICH I HATE!!!! IF SO WHAT MODEL# DO YOU HAVE?

Joseph Shea: Call a hi point cheap. Call a jeminez cheap..I paid 409 for this in michigan and is very accurate out of the box..first time at range, 3 different brands target loads..300 rounds. No failures..4 inch group at 10 yards. Yes we all have $1200 1911's... But who wants to carry that on a rainy day

WasabiKicks91: You've got me sold on this piece. I just gotta find one to test out with live ammo, and the polymer frame is not THAT shiny! (Then again I am Puerto Rican and we like shiny things) to each his own. Thanks for all the videos and honest critique/commentary you provide. 

TheDrRJP: Midway is out of stock on the plain-jane sights, which are both front AND rear. Not rear only. Plus, it says the following:

Notes:
Does not include a set screw

Well, SCREW that! 

Plus, what good is having a rear sight that can't be adjusted for elevation?. My SD9VE shot 3" low out of the box. To hit the bull at 10 yrds, I had to position the front sight in center position and tilt the rear sight down so that the top of its dots were below the front dot. I am going to call S&W and ask them to send me a few, new rear sights until I find one that works.

Or, put a red dot reflex on it instead.

But, before the sights go on, the replacement spring kit goes in first.

Steve Mahalko: O K...Thanks...I checked out Midway and found M&P sites form $14.00 to $128.00. really... just for a sight. anyway.. thanks for the help. Cant wait for your range review for the SD.

Steve Mahalko: Hey pal...nice video. I like u purchased an SD 40 VE for the price. Especially for a S&W. I called S&W and asked the if I could switch a M&P 40 site for the SD site...ande they said NO. So WHITCH M&P site did u buy. I really like the looks of urs..could u post a part # please. thanks.

Billy Skinz: Did your sight come with a set screw? Mine didn't. 

1342000harley: The SD guns are good weapons. I'm not an expert, but all those condescending remarks made you appear to be dealing with maybe some pencil envy issues, might need to seek professional help...

Mike lepori: I just watched your video and am having an issue with my rear sight on mine. What is the part number of the rear sight that you installed. I was on midway website and am wanting to order a new one for mine also. I saw some tru glo sights for front and rear but they said not for VE model. Not sure what the issue would be so decided i would install the same thing you used since i saw that it fit fine when you installed it and had that set screw so it wont move around like the stock one i have now. Thank you. BTW like you video, very informative.

Mike

Ispowz17751975: My Glock 26 is collecting dust. And because of my purchase of the SD9, I am thinking of climbing into and M&P now as well? Still a fan of Glock, just not loyal any more. And it only took the purchase of this inexpensive SD. it's not a bad firearm in any way, but like you pointed out the rear site sucks! It is being replaced for sure! 

Aaron Sukay: You're the exact kind of guy who I take the opposite advice of when it comes to guns. Thanks for being an idiot! 

Victor almaguer: Cheap in Spanish is barrato.... Wey...

Eric Palmer: Good video. Thanks.

Steve Mahalko: You are probably looking in the mirror aren't you...lol

CaptPizza: You seem like a big time pickle
