Smith & Wesson Adds to M&P Shield Line

Smith & Wesson Corp. recently launched its new M&P Shield M2.0 pistol series, including the M&P Shield M2.0 pistol with an Integrated Crimson Trace Laser. Available in 9mm and .40 S&W, the M&P Shield M2.0 pistol family builds upon the popular M&P M2.0 platform, delivering professional-grade features and proven performance in a slim, lightweight, and easy-to-carry profile that incorporates the enhanced M2.0 feature set.

"When we launched the M&P Shield pistol, it quickly became the pistol of choice in the concealed-­carry market," says James Debney, president and CEO  of American Outdoor Brands Corporation. "Having recently shipped our 2,000,000th M&P Shield pistol, we are now excited to build upon its success by introducing our newest Shield in the popular M&P M2.0 series of products. As personal protection continues to be a leading driver for consumers purchasing a handgun, the M&P Shield M2.0 pistol and M&P Shield M2.0 pistol with an Integrated Crimson Trace Laser both provide an all-in-one package for those looking for an everyday-carry firearm."

S&W’s enhanced M&P Shield M2.0 now includes an integrated Crimson Trace laser sight.

The M&P Shield M2.0 pistol builds upon the success of the best-selling M&P Shield pistol line through improvements such as a lighter trigger pull, a tactile and audible trigger reset, and aggressive grip texture for enhanced control. Those familiar with the M&P Shield product line will recognize the familiar, slim profile and 18-degree grip angle for a natural point of aim. Available with or without a manual thumb safety, the M&P Shield M2.0 pistol series features a 3.1-inch barrel in both 9mm and .40 S&W. It is available with both white-dot sights or tritium night sights, and ships with one standard and one extended grip magazine.

The M&P Shield M2.0 pistol is also available with an Integrated Crimson Trace Laser, providing consumers with an out-of-the-box concealed-carry solution that features two laser modes and ambidextrous laser activation for user confidence and reliable performance day or night. SRP: $479; $579 with tritium night sights; $499 with the Integrated Crimson Trace laser. (
