Ro Gal: Very nice review, could not have been better unless you videoed shooting
both guns and did some target comparisons. As a former owner of a Sigma
40F and 40VE, I can tell you (as many others can too) that the SD40 is
immensely better than my two former guns. Hopefully they've found a home
in the holster of a security or armored car guard. Will be getting the
M&P40 soon because a man can't have too many guns. OBTW for the non S&W
owners note that I also own a M&P15 because S&W makes excellent firearms
and has fantastic customer service.
akman45304: Just unfortunate that the M&P has the worst trigger ever
Liberty Through Arms: I have 2 Smith firearms. An SD9VE with the stainless slide and an M&P15T. I
am a relatively new gun owner and really need to get practice with both of
them before I can make a judgement on their performance. No problems so
Josh Price: OCD Much?
Gary Wright jr: Will the M&P 40 cal magazine fit in the SD 40 cal?
afr0shooterguy40: the one & only reason m&p is better than the sd or glock is that the m&p
has more steel parts where they need to be. the sights & rails are beefier
than glocks. im still not gettin.rid of my 27 or sd9 anytime soon. just
saying. maybe longer lifespan on m&p?
Andrew Schilling: magazine disconnect is for law enforcement, in a struggle the officer can
drop the magazine rendering the gun useless
Terence Brown: Heres a question. Would you be able to swap the barrels of the same caliber
to the other?
tylerlj1016: Quick question.. Anyone know if the m&p barrels will fit the sd series? I
have the sd40ve but I want the m&p pro 5inch barrel if it fits
tubular031: This video is the sd40. When I got this gun there was no sd40VE. as I
understand it, the VE is the next generation. The question to ask yourself
is what trigger do you like better? single action or double action. answer
that and then you will know what gun you should get. If I could only have
1, it would probably be the M&P. oh wait, which one is still in my safe at
home.... the M&P :) If you shop, M&Ps can be had for 400-450 often.
Joe Green: Assuming you prefer the M&P over the SD since you no longer have the SD, is
this correct? I have the SD9VE & the SD40VE both and have been happy with
them. I have put well just 4,000 rounds thru them both now and have had no
issues other than some old bad ammo I received from a friend. It had sat
for a long time in a shed and the primers were duds on a few, but that's
not the pistols fault. Think I'll get the M&P models now.
tubular031: @zolethia09 The M&P has a reversible mag release and a slide release on
both sides. The SD is not reversible and only has a slide release on the
left side. The SD is not left handed friendly. Sorry to you lefties out
soihitit: I am happy to finally find someone that has both the Sd and MP....Do you
really find a difference in the two? Other than price and looks if you had
to pick one, which would it be and why? I am looking to buy a 9mm but cant
decide if spending the extra $230 is justifiable when they are so similar.
Christian NOTW: im in debate whether to get one of the two. mainly for home defense but
also fun on the range as well as having it concealed too...the SD40VE New
Sigma Series is sold at Academy for around 300...is that the same one you
are reviewing in this video?
Vincent Hollaway: I have the sd40 and am very pleased. I will be getting the M&P in the 9mm
though. The trigger pull is smoother and it's just cheaper to shoot.
tubular031: Not sure if the mags will work in the SD. My friend has the sigma 9 and my
SD is a 40. Sorry.... I think both the sigma &SD are more accurate than the
shooter. The problem is the long heavy trigger. Most are not comfortable
with it so they start to shake or jerk the trigger which throws off the
bullet when fired. The SD trigger is smoother and not as heavy as the sigma
so that = better/easier to shoot to most. If you are good with a sigma, you
will probably be a little better with a SD.
Jason Mac: actually it is still a double action trigger but that m&p this is a lighter
yup: I have both the sd and the m&p. Deff a big difference between the two.
looks aside this presentation does a great job of stating the trigger pull
difference. The M&P has a much lighter pull that why i carry that inside
the waistband and leave the sd as reserve on my ankle. I aware of those who
say y have two when you carry around, i say why not.
Joe Green: I have replaced the polymer sights on my SD9VE & SD40VE with steel M&P
sights. I also did a couple other mods for looks and preference... I
drilled port holes in the front of the frames just below the slides,
polished the barrels and slides to high shine, and replaced the polymer
guide rods with polished stainless steel custom spiked guide rods. I must
say that it has made them look extremely cool and they still perform just
as awesome as always. Thanks again for the review.
michael malkowski: The SD and Sigma clips are interchangeable. The only differences are the
capacity, the Sigma magazine holds one extra round, and the bottom plate of
the magazine. The SD bottom plate is rounded and fits nicely with the
contour of the grip and the Sigma's is square.
ThatDudeSirraj: As always good review buddy. Your compulsive safety checking is a little
comical tho :) but still a good habit. Are the SD mags the same as the
Sigma mags? I have 4 mags for my sigma and if they are interchangeable I'm
thinking about getting an SD. I do like my sigma especially after the
trigger job I did. After thousands of rounds its proven extremely reliable
but like most others have claimed beyond 15 yds accuracy suffers heavily
and I've heard the SD is better in the accuracy dept. Thoughts?
Robert Wickham: Love my sd40 .I compared it to the m&p at my gun shop. It just feels right
.I personally love the trigger pull.keeps me right in line for the next
round. Great review
tubular031: I can not confirm this. I sold the SD awhile back so I can not test it out.
teh shoemaker: they only produced those for a limited time from what i can tell, now
they're all "VE" models and two-toned
tubular031: @MrJuiceyork Not my M&P. Its SAO. Pulling the trigger does nothing but
release the striker meaning its SINGLE action only. Please watch my video
called double action vs single action. I am going to do a part 2 on that
video where I will go into more detail on how the triggers work and show
examples. There is a version of the m&p that is DAO but from what I have
seen, its not very popular.
tubular031: It would depend on the person shooting the gun. Can you live with a DAO
trigger? is the medium grip ok for your hand? if so the SD is good. If you
can not shoot a DAO well, the m&p is the one for you. Check out my double
vs single action video to explain. The best thing to do is go to a gun shop
or show and hold both and decide which one fits your hand. dont worry about
price. Get what YOU like and not what people tell you to get. Good Luck!
afr0shooterguy40: oh & trigger pull. glocks trigger beats m&p & sd imo. they just went cheap
2005GMK: Oh ok, no problem.
urGod21: How much different is this sd40 from the sd40 ve ?
Russ A: Well done thanks!
Bj Meadows: Do they both have ambidextrous slide releases? What about ambidextrous
Ro Gal: Very Nice video presentation on two excellent and under rated firearms.
Would like to have seen you compare both the barrels like you did with the
other gun parts. Are any if the oarts interchangeable like the magazines?
Jayceonx: Where did you find an SD in all black? I thought they were all two toned
tubular031: I do not know. I don't have the SD anymore so I can not check for you.
2005GMK: Nice video. I just have 1 question if you do not mind. Can they fit on the
same holster? Thank you
tubular031: Sorry about that. I did not even think of looking at the barrels. I no
longer have the SD so I can not check. I did like the gun.
