“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.
