The Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 is a compact semi-automatic pistol produced by Smith & Wesson chambered for the .380 ACP cartridge.

Design details[]

The frame is made of polymer, while the barrel, receiver, and other vital parts are made from steel. The trigger is double-action only. The Bodyguard 380 has an integrated INSIGHT laser sight.[1]

The design incorporates various features normally seen on larger pistols, including the aforementioned 'INSIGHT' laser as well as a frame mounted safety and slide release. These additional features contribute to its higher base cost than other weapons of comparable size and caliber.
