A familiar yet brand-new firearm is making its way back onto the market from Smith & Wesson with the release of the new S&W SD9 2.0 pistol. This new take on the old Sigma line of handguns still keeps the budget-conscious design of the previous generation of SD pistols but with a new trigger, new slide design, and backward compatibility with standard SD accessories.

A Legend Returns: The NEW Smith & Wesson SD9 2.0

The perfect package for those looking for a “do-everything” handgun from the most trusted brand in firearms, without breaking the bank. Featuring an updated trigger and more aggressive slide serrations, the next generation of SD is built to do it all.

Offered in 9MM, the new generation of SD from Smith & Wesson offers brand new performance benefits at a budget friendly price. The trigger in the SD 2.0 is an enhanced flat-face design, giving better feedback during the pull, break, and reset when shooting.

The addition of new serrations on the slide gives you better surface area to manipulate the pistol. The SD 2.0 offers an impressive 16+1 capacity in a utilitarian side, making it perfect for duty, home defense, concealed carry, or just a day on the range. SD 2.0 offers white-dot sights and is compatible with standard SD accessories like holsters, lights, and lasers.

The Smith & Wesson SD9 2.0 pistol will come in a standard 16+1 capacity but is also available in a 10-round capacity version for more restrictive states. This update on an affordable classic has an MSRP of $349 but will likely have a street price well below that. One of my first carry guns was one of the original Sigma pistols (chambered in .40 S&W) and while these handguns didn’t offer a whole lot in terms of features, the second generation seems to be making smart improvements while keeping the price at a point where a working man can afford it.

    Had one of the originals for a time, scooped it up for 150$ used. It was genuinely an excellent, well built, and reliable shooter. You would have a hard time finding any real negative reviews of the gun, esp when it comes to reliability.
