Through a partnership with United Sporting Companies, Smith & Wesson is now selling machine engraved M&P Bodyguard 380 pistols. These new subcompact handguns are laser-less versions of the existing Bodyguard 380 pistols, but have a matte silver finish and engraving on the slide.

According to Smith & Wesson, the slides are custom machine engraved using a diamond-tipped tool. This tool allows the Smith & Wesson Custom Engraving Shop to produce intricate scrollwork with precision checkering and symmetrical filigree.

Like the standard pistols, these handguns are chambered in .380 ACP and hold 6+1 rounds. The guns weigh in at 12.3 ounces unloaded.

    Ok, I love my BG.380, but it is in my pocket! WTF? Why would you do anything fancy to something you hide? Like someone else said, Smith must be sitting on top of a mountain of inventory and just has to do something to move some of it.
