Springfield Police Department Upgrades to S&W M&P M2.0
Smith & Wesson will provide more than 600 pistols as part of the upgrade. The submission included four engraved pistols for Springfield Police Department Command staff. Officials from S&W presented the engraved pistols during a ceremony recently.
“The new M&P M2.0, with its aggressive texturing and tactile trigger reset, provides law enforcement with the ultimate in reliability and dependability. This upgrade to the M&P M2.0 should carry the Springfield Police Department through many years of service. Most importantly, we’re proud that our pistols are called on to protect law enforcement in Smith & Wesson’s hometown of Springfield, Massachusetts,” said Matthew Fehmel, Senior Director of Global Professional & International Sales for Smith & Wesson.
“We’re very appreciative of the entire team at Smith & Wesson. They have the best and safest products on the market. Their company being based in our city and many of their employees living in Springfield has led to a long-term partnership that our officers take pride in,” said Springfield Police Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood.
The M&P M2.0 comes with four interchangeable palmswell inserts. A light, crisp M2.0 trigger provides a tactile and audible reset. The pistol features a molded polymer frame for comfort and durability. An 18-degree grip angle delivers a natural point of aim. The M&P M2.0 comes in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 Auto. It also comes in full size, compact and subcompact variants. For even more information, please visit smith-wesson.com.
