Ed Brown Products M&P 2.0 Fueled Pistol

Ed Brown Products is now selling a factory customized variant of the popular Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0 polymer-framed, striker-fired 9mm handgun, the new M&P 2.0 Fueled Series.

This new Ed Brown handgun is decked out with factory customizations, including a customized slide, frame rails, extractor, barrel, trigger, frame pin, sight and other features. Every major part or minor sub-assembly has been worked over, with no stone left unturned. One of the more interesting modifications found on the Ed Brown Products M&P 2.0 Fueled Series is the custom “accuracy rail,” which uses an oversize part to replace the factor standard internal slide rails. Due to the way that this component interplays with both the slide and barrel, it plays a large rolle in increasing the handgun’s mechanical accuracy, something that even standard Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0 pistols are known for, even in their factory configuration.

Ed Brown Products M&P 2.0 Fueled Specifications and Features:

  • Action: Striker-fired, semi-automatic
  • Caliber: 9mm
  • Slide: Customized, fully machined from 17-4 stainless steel and factory milled for the Trijicon RMR pattern red dot footprint. Includes cover plate for when the dot is not used.
  • Barrel: Customized, button rifled from 416 stainless steel with an 11-degree target crown and 1:10-inch barrel twist optimized for stabilizing mid weight and heavier weight 9mm bullets
  • Accuracy Rail: Internal frame rail, oversized to aid in accuracy
  • Extractor: Customized design built with knowledge gained from 50 years of extractor design
  • Trigger: Aftermarket trigger optimized for an ideal striker fired pull weight and break
  • Magazine Well: Frame features a low profile mag well fully machined from aluminum, built to be comfortable and discreet when carried

MSRP for this Ed Brown M&P 2.0 Fueled Series varies by features selected. For more information on this pistol or other products from Ed Brown, please visit
