Smith & Wesson will showcase its latest M&P pistol and rifle introductions at the 2018 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. Firearm introductions include the new M&P9 and M&P45 M2.0 pistols with threaded barrels, as well as the new M&P15-22 SPORT in Blue Platinum Finish. The company will also feature its latest expansions to the M&P M2.0 pistol platform, including the M&P Shield M2.0, M&P Shield M2.0 with Integrated Crimson Trace Red and Green Laser, and the M&P M2.0 Compact pistol.
To further build out the capabilities of the M&P platform, the M&P9 and M&P45 M2.0 pistols are now available with a threaded barrel for use with suppressors. In addition to the threaded barrel, these pistols also include suppressor-height white dot sights, a barrel thread protector, and the popular M&P M2.0 feature set. MSRP for both pistols is $599.
The M&P15-22 Sport rifle, chambered in .22 LR, is available in a Robin’s Egg Blue Platinum finish for 2018. The rifle features a 10" M&P slim handguard that incorporates the popular Magpul M-LOK system, as well as removable Magpul MBUS front and rear folding sights. MSRP: $499
In addition to these new releases for 2018 at SHOT Show, the company will also display its latest introductions to the M&P M2.0 pistol platform, including the M&P Shield M2.0 and M&P M2.0 compact pistols.
The M&P Shield M2.0 pistol family builds upon the popular M&P M2.0 platform. The new pistol features an aggressive grip texture and smoother, lighter trigger pull. It is also available with an integrated Crimson Trace red or green laser in 9 mm and .40 S&W, providing consumers with a concealed carry solution that features two laser colors, two modes, and ambidextrous laser activation. MSRP: $479
Bridging the gap between concealment and shootability, in a versatile carry-size pistol configuration, is the M&P M2.0 Compact. It features a 4” barrel for easy concealment, and either a 15 round capacity in 9 mm or 13 round capacity in .40 S&W. MSRP: $569
