Did this video help you?

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 far. 

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 there.

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. Thanks

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 trigger pull

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. Sorry.

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 on sights.

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 magazine releases?

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. Sorry.

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.
