The Smith and Wesson SD40 is a large pistol chambered in .40 S&W. Smith and Wesson is the largest manufacturer of handguns in the United States. Headquartered in Springfield, Massachusetts, the company was founded in 1852 by Horace Smith and Daniel B. Wesson.
The SD40 includes stainless steel construction and a polymer frame. Additional features include an under-barrel rail for mounting accessories, textured polymer grips, and a melonite protective finish. Melonite is a metallic mineral closely associated with nickel (technically, a telluride of nickel). The SD40 utilizes a Tritium front night sight and steel 2-dot rear sight. The SD40 also employs a 10-round magazine.
Smith and Wesson recommends the SD40 for home protectional and recreational shooting.
