Smith & Wesson Corp. 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 9 mm 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.

“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," said Jan Mladek, general manager of Smith & Wesson and M&P Brands

The SD9 and SD40 pistols offer consumers a striker-fired pistol that features a solid, molded polymer frame designed for comfort and durability, as well as an ergonomic grip. The 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 FDE and Gray frame finish SD Series pistols feature a stainless steel slide and barrel with 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. Both models are equipped with a 4" barrel and an overall length of 7.2". MSRP: $389

Additionally,  throughout the month of June, Smith & Wesson is offering a $25 mail-in rebate on all new SD and SDVE pistols purchased through June 30, 2017, including the new Flat Dark Earth and Gray frame finish pistols.  There are three ways to complete the rebate process:
