Smith & Wesson Introduces M&P Bodyguard Handguns with Crimson Trace Laser Sights

August 06, 2014  | 

Smith & Wesson Corp. has joined forces with Crimson Trace to introduce enhanced, integrated laser sighting systems for the S&W's Bodyguard handguns.

Easily activated, the new laser sighting systems for the M&P Bodyguard pistols and revolvers are seamlessly integrated, allowing for quick target acquisition with the push of a button. Featuring intuitive activation, longer battery life, and high quality components, the integrated laser sights deliver an accurate and streamlined solution for those seeking effective sighting systems in their concealed carry and personal protection firearms.

“Through our partnership with Crimson Trace, consumers will benefit from a superior laser sighting system that is expertly integrated with our semi-automatic M&P Bodyguard 380 pistols and our M&P Bodyguard 38 revolvers,” said James Debney, president and CEO of Smith & Wesson. “Created using state-of-the-art design and manufacturing techniques, these new M&P Bodyguard firearms provide consumers with two exceptional choices when seeking dependability in personal protection.”

Precisely manufactured and repeatedly tested, the Crimson Trace integral lasers are designed to preserve the general shape and overall weight of the M&P Bodyguard firearms. The integral lasers provide shooters with added confidence by enabling quick sight acquisition under stress or in low light conditions –making them especially well-suited for conceal carry and personal defense needs.

M&P Bodyguard 380 Pistol
Compact, sleek and ergonomic, the M&P Bodyguard 380 delivers personal protection in an easy-to-carry, comfortable platform. Chambered for .380 ACP, the lightweight pistol features a high-strength polymer frame with a black, matte-coated stainless-steel slide and barrel. The new M&P Bodyguard 380 retains original design features including a 2 ¾-inch barrel, which contributes to an overall length of 5 ¼ inches and an unloaded weight of only 12.3 ounces, making it suited for concealed carry.

With its slim-line ergonomic grip, the pistol is comfortable in the hand and points naturally. On the lower portion of the frame, the pistol has been fitted with an integral Crimson Trace laser. The laser is easily activated and accommodates the needs of both left- and right-handed shooters. To help aid in quick sight acquisition when the laser is not in use, the pistol is fitted with stainless-steel, drift adjustable dovetail sights. The M&P Bodyguard 380 is standard with a 6+1 magazine capacity.

M&P Bodyguard 38 Revolver
Chambered in .38 S&W Special +P, the M&P Bodyguard 38 continues Smith & Wesson’s broad line of reliable, small-frame self-defense revolvers. The M&P Bodyguard 38 delivers the optimal combination of accuracy and simplicity for personal protection needs. With its lightweight design, the M&P Bodyguard 38 allows for discreet carry and its hammerless design provides a snag-free presentation. The five-shot revolver features a short 1.9-inch barrel, which contributes to a compact overall length of 6.6 inches and an empty weight of 14.4 ounces.

On the right side of the frame, the revolver has been fitted with an external module designed by Crimson Trace. The red laser sighting system features simple activation and precise shot placement in low light conditions. For fast target acquisition when the laser is not in use, the revolver sports a notch-style rear sight and a pinned black blade front sight.

I would edit this article ever-so-slightly.

The red laser sighting system features simple activation and precise shot placement in low light conditions, excluding those moments when you get an adrenaline dump, and you jerk you hand upon firing when precious seconds count.

The defense attorney for the victim will ask you "So did you really mean to shoot my client in the head?"

Survivor replies "No, not really, it's just that the weapon is so small, and my fingers turned to flippers, so the weapon jumped in my hand, I was aiming for center-of-mass."

Defense smiles, and says "So, you are telling us that you WERE NOT in complete control of your weapon?

Survivor coughs, and responds "Uh, actually, I DID mean to target his noggin. It IS chambered in 9mm short, you know."

Defense retorts "So, you ADMIT TO THE INTENTION OF ASSASSINATING MY CLIENT?"

And THAT's when you'll ask yourself, "Why oh why was a .45 Gold Dot to the chest so unappealing in the first place?"
