The Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 line of pistols is proof positive that any handgun bearing the S&W proofmark is the most advanced, shooter-friendly technology the storied company can produce. It’s also proof that Smith’s recent move from its historic home in Massachusetts to the more Second Amendment-friendly Tennessee hasn’t put a single hitch in S&W’s product innovations.

In fact, S&W isn’t waiting for 2022 or a whole new line of semi-automatic handguns to introduce major updates to the M&P M2.0—new models are out right now. Boasting a new trigger and optics-ready cut slide, this may be the Smith you’ve been waiting for.

The newly enhanced M&P9 M2.0 Compact and the full-sized M&P M2.0 are the direct result of customer feedback. Smith & Wesson touts its new M2.0 flat-face trigger, which optimizes trigger finger positioning … and that means more shot-to-shot consistency. Lefties can rejoice knowing that the new line is available with an ambidextrous thumb safety.

Naturally, the big news is the new line’s optics-ready cut slide. The engineers at S&W designed the C.O.R.E. system of mounting plates, so it’s simple for you to mount a variety of popular optics.

If you love the original M&P M2.0, don’t worry. Smith & Wesson hasn’t fixed what wasn’t broken. The M&P9 M2.0 comes with the familiar 18-degree grip angle, a favorite among shooters for its near universalitly. Women shooters will particularly appreciate the four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts, which allow you to customize the gun's grip until it fits your hand. Finally, you'll note the enhanced grip texture, which helps you keep a positive grip on your firearm, which in turn helps manage recoil.

“The diversity of the C.O.R.E. system for mounting electronic sights, the consistency of the new flat face trigger, and all of the high-quality existing features of the M2.0 family combine into a unique shooting experience and a variety of aftermarket consumer choices for use at the range or for personal carry,” said Smith & Wesson Senior Product Manager John Myles.

MSRP is $654.00 to $665.00; Smith-Wesson.com
