For 2021 Smith & Wesson has announced that it will offer a limited edition kit, of which includes an exclusive version of the company’s full size M&P9 M2.0 Optic-Ready pistol. In addition, a unique fixed-blade knife and challenge coin come with the kit.

The exclusive M&P9 M2.0 pistol offered in this new kit from Smith & Wesson is a full-size pistol chambered for 9 mm Luger. As with all M&P9 M2.0 pistols, four interchangeable grip inserts are included. The gun comes standard suppressor-height night sights that include Tritium for added assurance. A 4.6” Armornite-treated stainless steel barrel is supplied with a threaded muzzle for use with a suppressor. Smith & Wesson provides a two-tone finish with its M&P9 M2.0 Spec Series pistol, utilizing Flat Dark Earth color on the slide and black polymer in the frame. An optic-ready kit wouldn’t be a kit without a supplied optic; the Spec Series kit affords users with a Crimson Trace CTS-1500 red-dot optic.

Further enhancing the S&W Spec Series kit is a hard case, custom-fit and fully loaded with aforementioned accessories. In addition, a M&P series full-tang knife and sheath are supplied. The fixed-blade boot knife provides a 9” overall length with 4.5” single-edge spear-point blade that features a corrosion-resistant, black-oxide finish. A two-tone polymer handle is provided along with a nylon sheath.

The M&P Spec Series kit will also provide aficionados with two 17-round magazines and a unique, die-struck challenge coin. The antique-finished coin is constructed of solid nickel and comes protected in a clear acrylic case. All told, retail pricing is set for $969. To learn more about the M&P Spec Series Kit, go to
