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
