Way back in 1994, when I was but a wee child with not a care in the world, Smith & Wesson debuted its Sigma series of polymer pistols. The Sigma series marked the manufacturer's first foray into the polymer-framed pistol market. It also represented a true value as the price-point pistols were available for well under $400. Anyway, like the M&P series that would succeed it, the Sigma series was eventually lauded for its reliability, durability and accuracy. But unlike the M&P series, however, the clunky triggers that were characteristic of Sigma series pistols left much to be desired. Easy fix.

In 2010, Smith & Wesson announced their SD line of pistols, which is essentially a reworking of the earlier Sigma series and featured a redesigned trigger that provided a crisp, consistent pull from the first round through the last. These new-and-improved pistols now lack nothing. And considering they are available in both 9x19mm Parabellum and .40 S&W, they make excellent self-defense pistol. Pick up the new Smith & Wesson SD40VE today and find out for yourself.

The Smith & Wesson SD40VE is, like all pistols in the Sigma series, a semi-automatic, striker-fired, polymer pistol. As its name suggests, it is chambered for the .40 S&W cartridge and tailored for personal protection and self-defense. Each pistol comes with two 14-round magazines and the company's lifetime service policy.

The Smith & Wesson SD40VE is now available from for $374.95.

As noted, Smith & Wesson's Sigma series debuted in 1994 and marked the company’s first venture into the territory of polymer-framed pistols. Since then, several redesigns and updates to the series have been made to make the pistols live up to an even higher expectation of performance, including the most recent redesign that resulted in the SD series.

Based on the Sigma series, the SD series comes loaded with a wealth of features that place emphasis on ergonomics and safety while upholding the reliability, durability and accuracy of its predecessor.

As seems to be the case with many Smith & Wesson firearms, ergonomics played a big part in the design and production of the new SD series. A uniquely textured grip, which is joined by aggressive front and back strap texturing and an 18-degree grip angle, provides for a pistol that is comfortable to shoot and very natural to aim. Unlike its predecessor, however, the SD series also features front slide serrations in addition to the rear serrations, a textured finger locator and a standard Picatinny rail for the attachment of tactical lights and lasers. Knowing that the possible existence of these accessories could interfere with ejection, Smith & Wesson designed an enlarged ejection port to ensure performance.

Safety was also a big concern, which is typically the case. The most prominent safety features found on SD pistols is the passive trigger safety. This provision seems to be included with many modern pistols for good reason. The disjointed trigger features a secondary lever that must be pulled in conjunction with the trigger. This safety prevents any accidental discharges by requiring that the trigger be fully and intentionally depressed. It also protects against discharges that might occur in the event that the pistol is dropped. But that is not even the best part about the trigger.

As noted, the most prominent change found on the new SD pistols is a redesigned trigger that provides a crisp, consistent pull from the first round through the last. Dubbed the SDT™, or Self-Defense Trigger, the new trigger boasts a consistent eight-pound pull that drastically reduces the weight necessary to pull the clunky triggers of old found on the Sigma series.

The Smith & Wesson SD40VE features a four-inch barrel and an overall length of 7.2 inches. Materials used in producing the pistol include a polymer frame and a stainless steel slide and barrel. The slide sports a matte finish to reduce any glare that might occur. The pistol weighs in at just 22.7 ounces and includes a three-dot sight system, which provides for the rapid acquisition of targets as well as pinpoint accuracy. As noted, each pistol comes with two 14-round magazines to provide a "14+1" capacity.

If you had any doubt about the Sigma series in the past, now is the time to wipe the slate clean. The new SD series combines everything that attracted you to the Sigma series in the beginning with a drastically redesigned trigger that makes it truly worth your consideration.
