Smith & Wesson SD9VE Capacity

Available with 10 or 16 round magazines, the Smith & Wesson SD9VE accepts 9mm detachable box magazines.  Aftermarket magazine manufacturers also offer a 32 round extended magazine.

Smith & Wesson SD9VE Ergonomics

The S&W SD9VE offers a grip with contours designed to be comfortable for all users while the texturing along the grip offers extra control.  This striker-fired pistol has a trigger that is much heavier than its competition with a trigger weight around ten pounds.  The deep slide serrations offer a better grip on the slide as you cycle the action and the trigger safety is properly manufactured to comfortably match up to the trigger when firing.

Smith & Wesson SD9VE Fit & Finish

The Smith & Wesson SD9VE is made with a stainless steel slide and polymer frame.  The slide has a uniform surface finish and deep slide serrations, both giving the user plenty of grip when manipulating the slide.  The polymer frame is sturdy, though the surface finish tends to have an oily and bumpy look.  Disassembly of the SD9VE is nearly identical to the Glock pistol.
Fit and Finish

Smith & Wesson SD9VE Concealability

The Smith & Wesson SD9VE is very similar in size to the Glock 19, and is very easy to carry concealed with the proper attire. Its rounded edges help prevent clothing from catching on the gun and impeding your draw.
