S&W Performance Center M&P9 M2.0 Competitor
The metal-framed 9mm pistol comes with a 5-inch barrel. It features an enhanced sear for lighter, crisper let-off. It also includes a flared magazine well for fast and efficient reloads.
But what jumps off the page is the stylish new look. It includes aggressive lightening cuts on both the top and sides of the slide, ultimately reducing the amount of weight in front of the chamber. That design helps improve the recoil balance point, according to S&W. We know it sure looks pretty wild, and awesome we think, as well.
The slide features a cut for optics, but also includes a fiber-optics front sight and blacked out, serrated rear sight. The Competitor comes with an oversized mag release that is reversible for both right- and left-handed users. The pistol with with a total of four magazines. The pistol delivers an overall capacity of 17+1 (or 10+1). Finally, the pistol comes with a Tungsten Gray Cerakote or black Armornite slide finish.
The Competitor retails for $999. For even more info, please visit smith-wesson.com.

Function and fit certainly always impress. Better still, these guns perform. A steel-framed M&P, radically cut and tuned to PC performance? Yeah, that one sure ought to be a winner. Shooters talk a lot about out-of-the-box ready guns. It appears S&W delivered just that with this blaster.
