M&P 10mm

For those who might be unacquainted with the Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 series as a whole, there is a laundry list of improvements from the original M&P 1st Generation (if you want to call it that) as well as traits that sets the Smith & Wesson line of pistols apart from its competitors. A sampling of those characteristics can be read below:

  • Slide cut for optics
  • M2.0 flat face trigger for consistent finger placement that allows for more accurate and repeatable shooting
  • Low barrel bore axis makes the M&P® pistol more comfortable to shoot reducing muzzle rise and allowing for faster aim recovery
  • Optimal 18-degree grip angle for natural point of aim
  • Four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts for optimal hand fit and trigger reach – Small, Medium, Medium/Large, Large
  • Enhanced grip texture allows the user to manage recoil, keep a firm grip, and delivers comfort when concealing

  • New M&P® M2.0™ crisp trigger with lighter trigger pull
  • Tactile and audible trigger reset
  • Accurate 1 in 10˝ twist M&P® M2.0™ barrel
