Move over Glock 19. Move over Glock 23. Less than a year after the release of its M&P M2.0 pistol, Smith & Wesson Corp. has grown the family by adding the M&P M2.0 Compact pistol series. Available in 9 mm and .40 S&W, the series builds upon the popular platform in a versatile, carry-size configuration, and is designed for both personal and professional use.
President and CEO of American Outdoor Brands Corporation James Debney said, “When we introduced the M&P M2.0 pistol family back in January, we announced our plans to expand the next-generation M2.0 product platform beyond the full-size design.” He said the M&P M2.0 pistols represent a growing family of products developed through feedback from Smith & Wesson’s professional and civilian customers to deliver the performance and features they desire.
The compact pistol series features a 15- or 13-round capacity (depending on caliber), and a 4” barrel, blending a feature set that offers both shootability and concealment. “The M&P M2.0 Compact pistol series bridges the gap for those who want a single firearm for professional use, personal protection, carry, or practice at the range,” said Debney. “We believe the new M&P M2.0 Compact series will be sought after by consumers whose purchase option in this category has, until now, been limited primarily to the Glock 19 or 23.”
