Manufacturer’s Description

The Smith & Wesson (S&W) M&P Bodyguard 380 pistol is built on a black polymer frame with a stainless slide and barrel and chambered in .380 ACP. This gun is nearly identical to the previous model, the non-M&P Bodyguard 380, aside from two differences: The slide now features fish-scale serrations on the rear, and you can get it either without a laser sight, or with a built-in Crimson Trace red laser sight or a Crimson Trace Laserguard green laser sight (as opposed to the Insight laser sight in the original Bodyguard 380).
