S&W Performance Center Announces Optics-Equipped M&P Shield M2.0

S&W Performance Center Announces Optics-Equipped M&P Shield M2.0

As part of a broader announcement of nine new models in its M&P Shield M2.0 line, the Smith & Wesson Performance Center has unveiled several M&P Shield 2.0s that come equipped with a longer 4" barrel, a slide cut for optics and an included red-dot sight.

“With the growing popularity of slide-mounted optics, we wanted to design a slim, concealable, red-dot ready pistol for our consumer," said Tony Miele, general manager of the Performance Center. He continued, "In our minds, the Performance Center M&P Shield M2.0 felt like a natural fit for development.  Featuring a combination of M2.0 and Performance Center enhancements, these new pistols are slim, lightweight, and now red-dot equipped for quick target acquisition and easy concealment.”

To back up its red-dot, the new M&P Shield 2.0 features HI-VIZ front and rear fiber optic sights. Additionally, the action has been tuned by the Performance Center for a smooth, lightweight trigger pull and tactile reset. 

Available in 9 mm Luger, .40 S&W and .45 ACP, these new pistols are enhanced with the M2.0 feature set and are available in multiple configurations, including those listed below:

Performance Center M&P Shield M2.0 - 4” Barrel

In addition to these features, the Performance Center Ported M&P Shield M2.0 will ship with a Performance Center-branded Tipton
