Smith & Wesson  Inc.  has released the next evolution of the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield pistol—the M&P Shield Plus. Designed for concealed carry, the M&P Shield Plus is the most advanced M&P Shield pistol to date, featuring a magazine capacity up to 13 rounds in a slim, micro-compact frame. The M&P Shield Plus is available in 9 mm in a variety of configurations, including Performance Center models with optics cuts, upgraded sights and more.  

“We’re excited to announce the next evolution of the M&P Shield pistol—the M&P Shield Plus,” said Kyle Tengwall, vice president of marketing, said. “Packed with popular features such as a flat-face trigger, large capacity magazine, optics cuts, and more, the M&P Shield Plus product line has been designed to meet the needs of today’s firearm consumer.”  More than 3 million M&P Shield pistols have been sold in the past decade.

The new M&P Shield Plus comes in both standard and Performance Center models, each with a variety of enhancements. The M&P Shield Plus features the hallmark 18-degree grip angle of the M&P pistol series for a natural point of aim, helping to better manage recoil and get back on target quickly. Standard M&P Shield Plus pistols include a variety of features, including a flat-face trigger, a new, optimized grip texture designed for concealed carry, and two magazines: an extended 13+1 round magazine and a flush-fit 10+1 round magazine. Performance Center M&P Shield Plus pistols feature all of the enhancements of standard models, plus porting, fiber optic sights, longer slides, and optics cuts. The MSRP on the new M&P Shield Plus pistol starts at $553.
