The only thing that can make a Smith & Wesson M&P9 Metal M2.0 better is to let the Performance Center get its hands on it. That day has come with the release of the company’s latest Spec Series Kit. Not only does the Kit include the new pistol, but it also comes with a challenge coin and karambit-style knife.
The Smith & Wesson Performance Center Metal M&P9 M2.0 Spec Series
Part of Smith & Wesson’s Spec Series line, the pistol builds on an aluminum frame with OD green Cerakote finish. The grip features textured front and back straps for positive retention during courses of fire. Correspondingly, ensuring the proper fit, the Kit includes four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts.
The stainless steel slide, with OD green Cerakote finish, includes custom lightening cuts to reduce weight and improve reliability when compensated. Atop the slide are suppressor height night sights, providing an ample 5.99-inch sight radius for improved accuracy. Likewise, the optic cut with the C.O.R.E. (Competition Optics Ready Equipment) plate system allows for mounting a variety of optics.
Housed within the slide is the 4.8-inch stainless steel barrel, chambered in 9mm, with Armonite finish and 1:10 twist. The barrel features a built-in Faxon compensator to help reduce felt recoil and muzzle rise. An enhanced sear provides a lighter, crisp trigger let-off, helping to further promote accuracy and faster follow-up shots.
The Performance Center Metal M&P9 M2.0 Spec Series Kit ships in a custom hardcase with formed lining. Included in the case are the pistol, an M&P Spec Series challenge coin, karambit-style knife with Kydex sheath, C.O.R.E. plate system, four palmswell grip inserts, two 23-round magazines, and two 17-round magazines.
“Our M&P polymer handguns have long been recognized for their reliability and ergonomic design. By combining these trusted attributes with the durability of the Metal M2.0 platform and adding modern performance upgrades, we were able to elevate the Spec Series to next level. This design is a bridge between tradition and progress, and offers a distinct edge across today’s dynamic shooting environments,” said Corey Beaudreau, Product Manager.
The Smith & Wesson Performance Center M&P9 Metal M2.0 Spec Series is available now with an MSRP of $999.00. For more info, please visit Smith-Wesson.com.
