Smith & Wesson’s Performance Center has added three new M&P380 Shield EZ pistol configurations, each equipped with a premium feature set, including a ported barrel, flat face trigger, and Performance Center tuned action.  

“Performance Center has always been recognized for its ability to add custom touches to factory firearms, and the Performance Center M&P380 Shield EZ represents exactly that—custom features, built right in,” said Tony Miele, general manager of Performance Center. “When designing this product, we set out to maintain all of the easy to use features that have made the M&P380 Shield EZ wildly popular, while adding in a custom Performance Center touch. With a flat face trigger, lightening cuts in the slide, and three striking color options, the Performance Center M&P380 Shield EZ is sure to stand out at retailers nationwide.”

The new Performance Center M&P380 Shield EZ pistol features the hallmark easy-to-use features of the original M&P380 Shield EZ, including an easily manipulated slide, easy-to-load magazine, and easy to clean design. This new pistol features a 3.8” ported barrel to reduce muzzle flip, lightening cuts in the slide for reduced weight, and an 8+1 round capacity. Each pistol ships with HI-VIZ Litewave H3 Tritium/Litepipe sights. The pistol will also ship with a Performance Center-branded Tipton Compact Pistol Cleaning Kit that includes bore brushes, a cleaning rod, and related accessories to clean the pistol after use. 

The Performance Center M&P380 Shield EZ is available with a matte black frame and a choice of black, silver, or gold accents. MSRP: $502. 

The original M&P380 Shield EZ pistol placed first in the Third Annual American Rifleman Ladies Pistol Project.
