Smith & Wesson is justifiably famous for creating handguns perfect for women who carry concealed, and that tradition continues with its brand-new M&P M2.0 Compact optics-ready variant pistol, the M&P9 M2.0 Compact 4” OR. The new optics-ready model still features everything you love about the M2.0 series of handguns ... just with a handy way to install one of the best "instant fixes" for self-defenders. That "instant fix" is, of course, a reflex optic.

The point of a reflex optic is to make the process of sight alignment and acquisition foolproof. All the self-defender need do is raise the firearm, align the red dot on the desired point of impact, and (essentially, minus zeroing issues that won't really matter at self-defense distances) the bullet will strike where the dot is.

“The use of optics has become increasingly popular as handgun owners look for ways to enhance their accuracy and shooting experience," said Vince Perreault, Smith & Wesson’s Brand marketing manager. "To meet the demands of our consumers, the M&P9 M2.0 Compact is now able to accept many popular slide-mounted optics, straight from the factory.”  

The new models are chambered in 9 mm and feature a slide cut for the optics of your choice. Rest assured that the gun has co-witness white-dot front and rear sights, so the gun is absolutely ready to use right out of the box--you don't have to install the optic right away. The new pistol also boasts enlarged forward slide serrations to make racking the slide easier.

Purpose-built for both personal and professional use, the pistols include the M2.0 feature set and are available with or without an ambidextrous manual thumb safety. Chambered in 9 mm with a 4” barrel, the M&P9 M2.0 Compact OR comes standard with seven mounting plates designed to fit popular slide-mounted optics, two 15-round magazines, four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts and more. MSRP $616; smith-wesson.com.
