Smith makes their new M&P M2.0 official

It was leaked by Academy a while ago, but on Jan. 3 Smith and Wesson made their new and improved entry into the world of “Glock killers,” their updated M&P M2.0, official.

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.

Superior Ergonomic Design
•        M&P pistol’s optimal 18-degree grip angle, providing a natural point of aim
•        M&P pistol high grip-to-barrel bore axis – more comfortable to shoot, faster aim recovery
•        Four interchangeable dimensional palmswell grips for best-in-class fit: S,M,ML,L
•        New aggressive M2.0 textured grip for enhanced control
•        New front cocking serrations

Superior Performance
•        New M2.0 crisp trigger with lighter trigger pull
•        Tactile and audible trigger reset
•        Accurate 1 in 10” twist 9mm and 40S&W, and 1 in 15” twist .45 Auto M&P M2.0 barrels
•        Extended rigid embedded stainless steel chassis to reduce flex and torque when firing
•        Tactical white 3-dot steel sights for quick target acquisition

Superior Controls
•        Ambidextrous slide stop, reversible magazine release, and optional ambidextrous thumb safety
•        Simple M&P take-down lever, for easy disassembly and maintenance
•        M&P pistol sear deactivation lever – safe take-down without having to pull the trigger

Superior Finish
•        Armornite® – hardened nitride durable corrosion resistant finish on barrel and slide
•        Cerakote® FDE finish over Armornite® on Flat Dark Earth M2.0 slides

About laststandonzombieisland

Let me introduce myself. I am a bit of a conflict junkie. I am fascinated by war and warfare, assassination, personal protection and weaponry ranging from spud guns and flame throwers to thermonuclear bombs and Soviet-trained Ebola monkeys. In short, if it’s violent or a tool to create violence it is kind of my thing. I have written a few thousand articles on the dry encyclopedia side for such websites as Guns.com, University of Guns, Outdoor Hub, Tac-44, History Times, Big Game Hunter, Glock Forum, Firearms Talk.com, and Combat Forums; as well as for print publications like England Expects, and Strike First Strike Fast. Several magazines such as Sea Classics, Military Historian and Collector, Mississippi Sportsman and Warship International have carried my pieces. Additionally I am on staff as a naval consultant and writer for Eye Spy Intelligence Magazine. Currently I am working on several book projects including an alternative history novel about the US-German War of 1916, and a biography of Southern gadfly and soldier of fortune Bennett Doty. My first novel, about the coming zombie apocalypse was released in 2012 by Necro Publications and can be found at Amazon.com as was the prequel, Chimera-44. I am currently working on book two of that series: "Pirates of the Zombie Coast." In my day job I am a contractor for the U.S. federal government in what could best be described as the ‘Force Protection’ field. In this I am an NRA-certified firearms, and less-than-lethal combat instructor.
