SPRINGFIELD, Mass. –-( Smith & Wesson Corp. today announced that it has expanded its line of Self Defense pistols to include Flat Dark Earth (FDE) and Gray frame finishes.

The Smith & Wesson SD Series, chambered in 9mm and .40 S&W, offers a variety of features designed for home and personal defense applications, including a smooth, consistent trigger pull and lightweight polymer frame.

Jan Mladek, General Manager of Smith & Wesson and M&P Brands, said, “The Self Defense pistol series is designed for personal and home protection in a lightweight, reliable package and at a price point that offers a great value. We are excited to expand the popular Smith & Wesson SD pistol series in new color options that appeal to our consumers.”

The SD9 and SD40 pistols offer consumers a reliable, durable striker-fired pistol that features a solid, molded polymer frame designed for comfort and durability, as well as an ergonomic grip. The Self Defense pistol series comes standard with a white-dot front sight and a white two-dot rear sight, as well as an accessory rail for optional lights, lasers and rail-mounted accessories to aid in home and personal protection. Both the Flat Dark Earth and Gray frame finish SD Series pistols feature a stainless steel slide and barrel with a durable Armornite™ finish, providing increased corrosion resistance.

The SD9 pistol is available with a 16+1 round capacity, while the SD40 pistol is standard with a 14+1 magazine capacity. Equipped with a 4-inch barrel and an overall length of 7.2 inches, both models are well suited for personal protection or home defense.
