It will probably be a super hot item at SHOT Show coming up and with a MSRP of $599 and both standard black and FDE offerings up for grabs, could do well.

From S&W’s presser:

Highlights of the M&P M2.0 pistol include an extended stainless-steel chassis and high grip to barrel bore axis ratio for reduced muzzle rise and faster aim recovery.  The M&P M2.0 pistol further improves performance with a fine-tuned, crisper trigger, lighter pull, and a tactile and audible reset. The pistol, available in three calibers (9mm, 40S&W and .45 ACP), includes an aggressively-textured grip and four interchangeable palmswell inserts for optimal hand-fit and trigger reach.
