So I was chatting with a S&W LE Rep today and I asked about the discontinuation of the SD9. He said he could not confirm it was discontinued, but it was out of production for the time being. He said that for the last several months they have been focusing on the manufacture of the M&P Shield line and that other new guns may be coming out down the road as well. He also reminded me that the Sigma line has been discontinued 3 times and reborn 3 times. So maybe, just maybe, the SD9 will come out in a year or two as a 2nd Gen SD9.
