First Look: Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 Compact

posted on October 5, 2017

Aimed squarely at the very popular duty/carry crossover market, the downsized Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 Compact maintains the lines and features of the M2.0 family, but features a 4” barrel and 15-round capacity in 9-mm models. Available in 9 mm Luger and .40 S&W, the newest M2.0 should prove a strong competitor to some similarly dimensioned stalwarts in the double-stack, personal-defense category. To give us a first look at the new gun, world champion shooter Julie Golob paid a visit to the NRA range.
