Now Smith & Wesson Inc. is expanding its line of M&P Shield Plus pistols to include a new optics-ready variant, the M&P9 Shield Plus 3.1-inch OR.
In retrospect, Smith & Wesson had nobody to blame for the situation but themselves. The company didn’t invent the subcompact, lightweight, single-stack nine, of course. Walther and Beretta had preceded the original Shield to market by a few years with the PPS and the Nano, respectively, and Kahr had more or less created the niche back in the 1990s.
XS Sights has come out with a new line of night sights designed for the newest Smith & Wesson M&P Shield pistol.
Smith & Wesson recently updated the Shield to the higher-capacity Shield Plus, and Apex Tactical is ready with the Action Enhancement Trigger & Duty/Carry Kit.
Now Tac Shield is expanding their popular sling category with a new Tactical 2-Point Padded Sling.
Meprolight is making their Mepro Hyper-Bright day/night sight sets for the Smith & Wesson Shield Plus.
Faxon Firearms, a U.S.-based manufacturer of rifle and pistol components as well as complete firearms, is releasing their new Match Series Barrels for 9 mm models of the M&P Shield.
