Default Just received my SW40VE

Posted earlier about my FIL giving my his SW40VE. Besides the terrible trigger what can you tell me about this weapon? Ser. # DSH2366. Thanks all.

It was not designed or priced to be a target pistol.

We just had my SW40VE out at the farm shooting about three weekends ago. Afterwards, I cleaned it up, loaded it and put it back in the truck.

I have several. The oldest was acquired about two decades ago. All have been perfectly reliable.

If the gun goes boom when the trigger is pulled, IMO, that is a great trigger. Most people will adapt to a heavier trigger pull if they shoot the gun enough.

I am currently carrying a Star Super A, so I understand what you are saying. But I also carry DA revolvers, a 12 pound trigger is good to me. I have one revolver a Colt Police Positive, manufactured in 1911, with a 17 pound trigger, it shoots great.

Shoot it, you will get used to it.

Is there any chance that your FIL gave you the original box?

98% of the time, the box will have the exact Date of Manufacture on it coded under "SPEC ORD"

Going from serial number lists I would guesstimate that one to be around 2008
