Default SD9VE Galloway Boudicca

Anyone try one of these out? Any comparison to the Apex trigger? I am curious but Galloway’s guide rod debacle is something that sticks in the back of my mind.

Sadly, I've heard far too many negative reports regarding aftermarket parts/modifications impacting the firearms reliability or longevity to ever consider using any of these parts.

Steel Guide Rods damaging the frame, trigger spring kits preventing the trigger from resetting when using full-power 180gr SD loads, and striker spring kits resulting in light primer strikes.

The only things that I've swapped out on my SW40VE are the sights and the backplate. If I wanted a better trigger or a steel guide rod, then I'd get an M&P.

I have an SD9VE, SD9 AND SD40VE, they are all stock. I shoot and enjoy them just as they are. I've had R. O.'s at the range ask about mods I had done, because of my accuracy with them. They were surprised when I told them they were bone stock.
Learn the trigger, shoot them often and enjoy!! :-)

I put the Boudica trigger in my SD9VE. For a $25 mod it's damn good. It gives it a nice short pull and reset. I've put roughly 500 rounds thru it since I put it in. It works flawlessly.
