NRA Women loved the original Smith & Wesson M&P380 Shield EZ so much they collectively voted it their overall favorite of 26 guns tested in the 2018 Ladies Pistol Project. The pistol also won accolades from NRA editors, receiving Golden Bullseye Awards from sister publications American Rifleman and Shooting Illustrated.

Earlier this year, the gun maker introduced the popular concealed-carry pistol in the desirable 9 mm Luger chambering while retaining all of the favorite features found across the entire M&P Shield EZ family—including an easy-to-rack slide and easy-loading magazine. Now we have learned that Smith & Wesson has announced the new Performance Center M&P9 Shield EZ, chambered in 9 mm and enhanced with a variety of Performance Center upgrades. The pistols are available with striking black, silver, and gold accents, and include a ported barrel, flat face trigger, tuned action and more.

“Performance Center has the ability to design and manufacture specialty upgrades normally found in aftermarket work, straight from the factory,” said Tony Miele, Sr. director, New Products and Performance Center. “With the popularity of the M&P9 Shield EZ, we set out to develop Performance Center versions with porting, a tuned action, aftermarket sights, and more.”

Built for personal and home protection, the pistols feature an 8+1 round capacity and a 3.8” barrel. The Performance Center M&P9 Shield EZ pistol ships with two 8-round magazines that feature a load assist tab for quick, easy loading, as well as a Picatinny-style equipment rail to accommodate accessories. The pistol also features an optimal M&P pistol 18-degree grip angle for a natural point of aim, HI-VIZ Litewave H3 sights, and a light, crisp trigger. MSRP: $588.
