Mine was terrible. I had over a 50% (103 out of 200) failure to feed ratio. I handled one that still had heavy tool marks on the slide and bought one anyway. Will not buy one again. I have alot of 3rd gen Smiths that are flawless and a Shield9 that has been flawless but the SD40VE was my worst experience with a gun to date. I was lucky enough to have a stand up LGS.
