For the first time since 1995, Smith & Wesson has a 10 mm in its consumer offerings with an expansion to its M&P M2.0 line. The new M&P 10 mm M2.0 standard 10 mm comes with enhanced features like an optics cut slide with the C.O.R.E. system, which enables users to mount a variety of popular optics. This handgun is designed to carry an impressive 15 + 1 capacity, ships with two magazines, and features Smith & Wesson’s brand new M2.0 flat face trigger design, which is designed to optimize trigger finger placement to allow for more consistent and accurate shooting.
“Having not made a 10 mm semi-automatic handgun since the 1990s, it’s a pleasure to re-enter that space with the M&P10 mm M2.0 pistol,” said Smith & Wesson Senior New Product Manager John Myles. “The 10 mm caliber has its own following, and our customers have been asking us to bring one back. We are excited to launch this product using the M&P45 M2.0 as a building block to support existing aftermarket accessories that are readily available, as well as adding new enhanced features like the optics ready slide and the new M2.0 flat face trigger.”
The new handguns include the M2.0 features and are available with or without an ambidextrous manual thumb safety. Smith & Wesson will offer a shorter 4” configuration of the handgun to allow for quicker clearance of a holster or a slightly longer 4.6” configuration to provide for a longer sight radius to optimize the accuracy of the barrel’s 1:10” twist rate. The pistol also is outfitted with the familiar 18-degree grip angle, four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts, and enhanced grip texture to help manage recoil.
MSRP is $654 to $665.
