New for 2019: S&W Performance Center M&P Shield Pistols

Thin and trim 9 mm pistols are all the rage right now, and Smith & Wesson is expanding the company's range of M&P Shield 2.0 pistol with nine new Performance Center models which include a longer, 4-inch barrel and slides designed from the start to mount a red-dot optics. Smith & Wesson is also shipping the company's first-ever Performance Center M&P Shield M2.0 with an included red-dot sight, delivering cutting-edge performance in an easy-to-conceal package.

Tony Miele, general manager of the Performance Center, said, “With the growing popularity of slide-mounted optics, we wanted to design a slim, concealable, red-dot ready pistol for our consumers.  In our minds, the Performance Center M&P Shield M2.0 felt like a natural fit for development. Featuring a combination of M2.0 and Performance Center enhancements, these new pistols are slim, lightweight, and now red-dot equipped for quick target acquisition and easy concealment.”

The new Performance Center M&P Shield M2.0 pistols feature HI-VIZ front and rear fiber optic sights and a Performance Center-tuned action for a smooth trigger pull. Available in 9 mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP, these new pistols include all the M2.0 feature set and are available in multiple configurations:
