Smith & Wesson is expanding its line of M&P M2.0 Compact pistols to include an optics-ready variant, the M&P9 M2.0 Compact 4-inch OR. Chambered in 9 mm, the pistol builds on the award-winning M&P9 M2.0 Compact pistol series, and features a slide cut for an optic that co-witnesses the white-dot front and rear sights, along with enlarged forward slide serrations.
Vince Perreault, Smith & Wesson’s Brand Marketing Manager, said, “The use of optics has become increasingly popular as handgun owners look for ways to enhance their accuracy and shooting experience. To meet the demands of our consumers, the M&P9 M2.0 Compact is now able to accept many popular slide-mounted optics, straight from the factory.”
The M&P9 M2.0 Compact OR pistols are purpose-built for both personal and professional use, and include the M2.0 feature set. The handgun is available with or without an ambidextrous manual thumb safety and is chambered in 9 mm, with a 4-inch barrel. The M&P9 M2.0 Compact OR comes standard with seven mounting plates designed to fit popular slide-mounted optics, two 15-round magazines, four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts, and other items.
