Smith & Wesson's new M&P 9 M2.0 Compact Optics-Ready Spec Series semi-automatic pistol comes in a limited edition kit with a dedicated coin, folding knife, extended magazines, and more
New for mid-2022 by Smith & Wesson, the Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 Compact Optics Ready Spec Series 9mm Luger semi-automatic pistol represents the third iteration of the Spec Series pistol series, a line of M&P M2.0 variants optimized for better performance in personal defense, home and property protection, sport shooting, law enforcement and private security service applications, and tactical operations.
The new Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 Compact Optics Ready Spec Series retains all the features that made the M&P M2.0 line of pistols so popular, with a new, captivating look: a bull shark gray polymer frame and Cerakote steel slide, and a set of black interchangeable backstraps, a black barrel, and black small parts – including sights, trigger, magazine floorplate, and others.
The "M&P Spec Series" logo is laser-engraved on the barrel, at the ejection window. The magazine release catch is reversible for right-handed or left-handed users, while the slide stop is ambidextrous from factory.
Other features of the Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 Compact Optics Ready Spec Series include a railed polymer frame for tactical accessories; a small port at the rear end of the ejection port, dubbing as a loaded chamber indicator; and an improved M2.0 flat face trigger for consistent finger placement that allows for more accurate shot placement.
The slide of the new Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 Compact Optics Ready Spec Series pistol features front and rear serrations, and a modular C.O.R.E. interface protected by a metal plate, which allows the use of the vast majority of popular micro red dot sights through a set of factory-issued mounting plates.
The three-dot dovetailed iron sights are raised to co-witness with the red dot sight.
The Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 Compact Optics Ready Spec Series features an 11,75 cm / 4.6" threaded barrel, allowing the use of muzzle accessories such as flash hiders, muzzle compensators, or sound suppressors.
The tall sights allow for an accurate target acquisition even with a suppressor or another bulky muzzle device attached.
Smith & Wesson's M&P M2.0 Compact Optics Ready Spec Series pistol is 203,2 mm / 8" long overall, weighs in at 807 grams (28.5 oz) when empty, and comes from factory with three magazines – a flush-fit 15 rounds and two extended 23 rounds magazines.
All magazines are manufactured out of metal, with polymer floorplates and elevators, and feature witness holes for a quick check of remaining ammunition.
