And now for something completely different from Smith & Wesson in the concealed-carry category—the 9mm CSX. Built on an aluminum alloy frame with interchangeable polymer back straps, the pistol can be easily customized for individual levels of concealment and fit. Chambered in 9mm, the CSX has an impressive 12+1 capacity and, for deeper concealment, comes with an additional 10-round magazine.

“Since the launch of the M&P Shield pistol, Smith & Wesson has been invested in the compact concealed carry firearm market,” said Senior Product Manager John Myles. “Last year, we modernized and updated the legacy platform by increasing capacity and updating the trigger geometry with the release of the Shield Plus. With the design of the CSX, we started with a fresh canvas, providing the consumer with a completely different option for concealed carry.”

The micro-sized CSX is all about flexibility for the user, featuring ambidextrous slide releases and manual safeties. Left-handed? No problem. The pistol also comes with two changeable magazine release buttons, offering the option to convert from the standard right-handed magazine release. While the single-action-only hammer-fired CSX is packed with many rich new features, it also features some of the iconic brand's classic design characteristics like the optimized 18-degree grip angle and textured front and back straps. Slide serrations on the front and rear assist with slide manipulation. A flared design on both sides of the rear serrations make racking the slide even easier. The 3.1” barrel features a 1:10” twist rate. Rounding out the features is a comfortable flat-faced trigger for a crisp and consistent trigger pull.
