Smith & Wesson 4040PD .40 S&W

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

We really like this gun, despite our desire to make small changes such as adding a spurred hammer. The 4040PD is a stylish gun that is powerful, yet remarkably comfortable to shoot. The use of titanium makes it high priced as well as hightech, however.

Beneath the distinctive logo that signifies the use of titanium was a guide rod surrounded with two recoil springs.
We think that one of the reasons why the 4040PD was so comfortable to shoot was the Hogue rubber grip and frontstrap checkering. The extension on the base pad was a welcome addition to the grip as well.
