The expansion to the M&P9 M2.0 comes as no surprise. Like the other entries in the series, like the M&P M2.0 Subcompact, the new model looks like another winner. Chambered in 9mm, the Compact 4″ OR features a slide cut for optics, co-witness white-dot front and rear sights, and enlarged forward slide serrations.
“The use of optics has become increasingly popular as handgun owners look for ways to enhance their accuracy and shooting experience,” said Vince Perreault, Marketing Manager, Smith & Wesson. “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 new Compact includes the M2.0 feature set. It comes with or without an ambidextrous manual thumb safety. The pistol comes standard with seven mounting plates designed to fit popular slide-mounted optics. It also includes two 15-round magazines and four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts. Meanwhile, MSRP comes in at $615. For more info, please visit smith-wesson.com.
