The Smith & Wesson SD (Self defense) pistol series is now available in flat dark earth (FDE) and gray frame finishes, the iconic Springfield, Mass.-based company announced yesterday.

“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,” Jan Mladek, GM of Smith & Wesson and M&P brands, said in a statement.

Chambered in 9mm and .40 S&W, the Smith & Wesson SD lineup is built to get the job done for home and personal defense applications. The striker-fired SD9 and SD40 pistols feature a solid, molded polymer frame; ergonomic grip; white-dot front sight and white two-dot rear sight; accessory rail for optional lights, lasers and rail-mounted accessories; and a smooth, consistent trigger pull.

Both the FDE and gray frame finish Smith & Wesson SD pistols boast a stainless steel slide and barrel with a Armornite finish for increased corrosion resistance.

The SD9 pistol has a 16+1 round capacity, while the SD40 features a 14+1 capacity. Both models sport a four-inch barrel and an overall length of 7.2 inches.

The MSRP for all the new Smith & Wesson SD flat dark earth and gray frame finish pistols is $389, though Smith & Wesson is also offering a $25 mail-in rebate on all new SD and SDVE pistols purchased through June 30. Head over to to learn more about that.
