First Look: Smith & Wesson M&P Bodyguard Handguns with Crimson Trace Lasers

by G&A Online Editors   |  July 15th, 2014 6

smith_wesson_Bodyguard_crimson_trace_CT_00014Smith & Wesson has teamed up with Crimson Trace to enhance the M&P Bodyguard line of handguns with integrated laser sighting systems.

Built directly into the frames of M&P Bodyguard 380 pistols and M&P Bodyguard 38 revolvers, Crimson Trace designed the laser units to preserve the general shape and weight of S&W’s popular carry guns.

Reintroduced at the 2014 SHOT Show, the Bodyguard 380 has proven itself among consumers who prefer to carry a gun smaller than the 9x19mm or .40 S&W Shield.

Crimson Trace tailored their integrated laser unit into the frame of the M&P 380 with minimal size increases. Located just in front of the trigger guard, the unit can be intuitively activated by left- or right-handed shooters. When the laser is not in use, the pistol is fitted with stainless steel dovetail sights.

The M&P Bodyguard 380 pistol is available immediately for an MSRP of $419.

Smith & Wesson’s five-shot Bodyguard 38 Revolver offers a simple hammerless design in a small-frame package. Now fitted with Crimson Trace’s red laser module on the right side of the frame, this .38 S&W Special +P revolver is a great wheel gun option for fast target acquisition.

The M&P Bodyguard 38 Revolver is available immediately for an MSRP of $509.

    wait… they took the bodyguard 380…. removed the laser, and called it an M&P Bodyguard 380…. now they are adding a laser back on… ? I don’t really get it, why take it off just to add a 3rd party one back on?

      Because they’re S&W, and they can. Also they haven’t made anything I’d want to buy from them in the last 20 years. I had one of their piece of junk SA pistols in the 90’s….

        I have a S&W M&P Shield 9mm, and its been fantastic…

        Either you spend $2500 for overpriced show and tell pieces or you are thrilled to carry something made overseas with a cheap price tag. What ever your story is, you need to get rid of that ignorance and enjoy what’s available.

    I saw they had a Smith and Wesson lady pistol in 357 magnum . I have a small hand and it fit me well until I found the words lady pistol on the side. For one most ladies I know that have small hands do not like a 357 mag for one . The other problem people complained about was the hammer gouged their hand with a 357 mag . So I bought a Ruger LCR 357 magnum . Now if Smith and Wesson just not had lady gun written in the pistol and had made it hammerless . I might have bought a Smith and Wesson . I sold guns many years ago and when Smith and Wesson changed their piece rate . I got a New Smith and Wesson with the barrel installed crooked in the frame . I always like Smith and Wesson but they need to go back to the drawing board on a few things . Why on earth does anyone need to put lady or man gun on a gun ? There are guys out there too with small hands . And there are ladies that like 357 mags so I am not saying there are none . But after selling guns for over 30 years no lady ever came to my shop and said I want a gun that says lady gun on it . Now some people do like colors on guns but I think that makes them look like toys . And guess what kids like ?

    I have a Shield in .40, and I love it! A little snappy on recoil but I love it. Also have a .45 M&P, I love it even more! Great line of handguns.
