Smith & Wesson Governor vs Bodyguard 38 Revolver Size Comparison

The Smith & Wesson Governor vs Bodyguard 38 revolver size comparison image was created with the triggers aligned. The two revolvers are both great firearms, but serve different purposes.

The Governor is a very good defense option, but it’s size is not exactly what we would call ideal for concealed carry. If you are looking for a concealed carry option, well Smith & Wesson designed the Bodyguard for that exact purpose.

This size comparison is one where we knew the size difference between the three was going to be so obvious that it might be a waste of time posting it.

Ruger LC9 vs Sig P290 vs Kimber Solo 9mm Pistol Size Comparison

Our Ruger LC9 vs Sig P290 vs Kimber Solo 9mm pistol size comparison image is rendered with the three guns backed up to the y axis and dropped down onto the x axis to best compare the height and length of these 9mm pistols. This image was the very first size comparison image we created.

As the micro-9 pistols started to roll out on the coat tails of the extremely popular .380 ACP pocket pistol market these were the three top dogs.

The big question became, which is better?
Well isn’t that the million dollar question and unfortunately the best answer is, “it depends.”
If price is a big deciding factor, then you want the Ruger LC9.
If you are a huge 1911 fan, then the Kimber Solo is for you.
If you are a sucker “like me” for a bull barrel, then maybe the Sig P290 is your choice.

Ruger LCP vs Ruger LC9 Pistol Size Comparison

The Ruger LCP vs Ruger LC9 size comparison image is rendered with the far left and very bottom of the pistols lined up. Regardless of how we lined up this image overlay the size difference in VERY noticeable.

This noticeable size difference really surprised many people including myself. To clarify, the surprise was based on our assumption of what the LC9 would look like (SMALL) when news started coming out that Ruger was designing a micro-9 pistol to join their LCP in the compact concealed carry category. The issue was that the LC9 was much bigger and cumbersome than most people expected.

Sig P290 vs Sig P238 Pistol Comparison

| Comparisons, Product Info | January 12, 2013

Sig P290 vs Sig P238 Size Comparison

The Sig P290 vs Sig P238 is a Sig on Sig comparison between the .380 ACP and 9mm pistol options.

The Sig Sauer P290 9mm pistol is part of the micro 9 concealed carry movement and the Sig Sauer P238 .380 ACP pistol is part of the original pocket pistol movement. I am not sure if the pressure of people wanting a more powerful round or the fact that .380 ACP was nearly impossible to get during the pocket pistol explosion drove companies into the micro 9 market. Regardless of the motives we are sure glad they are showing up.

The New Colt Mustang Pocketlite .380 ACP Pocket Pistol

| Product Info, Reviews | February 8, 2012

It’s back! Colt has reintroduced the .380 Mustang Pocketlite with numerous improvements that spell out one heck of an accurate pocket pistol. Yes, a 2.75 inch barrel pocket pistol firing .380 ACP is accurate, very accurate. This comes thanks in large part to a fully machined receiver, slide and barrel.

In addition to the solid bar CNC machined parts, the Colt Mustang Pocketlite benefits from high profile sights that make target acquisition much easier.

Colt also used a solid aluminum trigger similar to that of a 1911. Depending on the .380 ACP Pocket Pistol that you have experience with, you will find this trigger to be either exceptional or beyond exceptional.

Speaking of a 1911 style trigger, the entire Colt Mustang resembles a 1911. Even though it may be a baby 1911, the grip angle and grip size fit the hand extremely well.

Outside of all the features that make this a great shooting gun, there is also a standard safety which many people are looking for in a pocket pistol. With a trigger like the Ruger LCP you would not need a safety, but with this finely tuned pistol a external safety is a plus.

A few other notable features:
-Alluminum Alloy Receiver with E
-Stainless Steel Slide and Barrel
-5.5 inches total length
-Single Action Trigger
-Commander Style Hammer
-Lowered Ejection Port
-6+1 Capacity

Add all these things up and still this feature packed Mustang weighs in at just 12.5 ounces, making it an ideal choice for Concealed Carry.

During the SHOT Show Media Day many products impressed me. It would be impossible for me to pick the most impressive without putting 3-5 names in a hat and picking one. However, the new Colt Mustang Pocketlite was at the very top of the list and would surely be tossed in the hat for best in show.

In the video below you will see that we were shooting at around 20 yards and I managed to hit 10 of 10 with very little effort. I promise my LCP wouldn’t pull that off.

Springfield XD 3.0 & XDM 3.5 Size Comparison

| Comparisons, Product Info | October 24, 2011

Until doing this size comparison I had no idea that the Springfield XD 3.0 Compact in either 9mm or .40 S&W is virtually identical in proportions to the Springfield XDM 3.5 Compact in 9mm or .40 S&W.  The only noticeable difference is the obvious half inch difference in barrel length.  I guess one should never assume, but I sure assumed there was a size difference probably based on the aggressive look of the XDM.

Putting the size comparison and proportions aside, there are quite a few differences between the XD and XDM models.  I am personally looking forward to a more compact XDM option being released in either .40 S&W or .45 ACP.  You can check out both of these models at their website: springfield-armory.com

Size Comparison of the Springfield XD 3.0 and the Springfield XDM 3.5 in either 9mm or .40 S&W

 

Size Comparison of the Springfield XD 3.0 and the Springfield XDM 3.5 in either 9mm or .40 S&W

 

The only difference between image 1 and image 2 is the XD is on the top layer in image 1 and the bottom layer in image 2.  The minor differences you can see along the borders of the outlines are fractions of a fraction of an inch and more likely small differences between lighting in the original photos than action pistol size.
