For those who squee over FDE, but really like the .45

More the past several months, I have been alternating my carry between Smith’s Compact M2.0 (available in any color you want as long as you want black) and Glock’s 19X (which is in a really sweet Coyote scheme), but now there may be something a little neater out there. Featuring Truglo TFX night sights and an FDE finish, Smith & Wesson’s newest .45ACP M2.0 pistol has a lot to offer right out of the box, and looks good doing it.

Announced earlier this week, the newest variant of the M&P45 joins the company’s previous 9mm and .40-caliber offerings in the FDE stable of second generation Military & Police series semi-auto handguns. Besides the obvious finish characteristics, the factory-standard Truglos offer encapsulated tritium and fiber optics for use in either day or nighttime conditions.
