Smith & Wesson has announced the third iteration of its M&P Spec Series pistols, with the release of the M&P M2.0 Compact Optics-Ready Spec Series pistol kit. This limited edition M&P 2.0 Spec Series pistol, chambered in 9 mm Luger, includes a 4.6" threaded barrel and a slide equipped with Smith & Wesson's C.O.R.E. mounting system, with included mounting plates. This allows users to attach a wide range of popular micro red-dot optics directly to the slide. Also included on the slide are three-dot, suppressor-height sights, which allow for co-witnessing through the objective window of a mounted optic.
The slide is finished in Bull Shark Grey Cerakote, with the frame made of a similarly colored polymer, contrasted against black smaller components. A "M&P Spec Series" logo is also laser engraved onto the barrel. The frame also includes interchangeable backstraps and a Picatinny rail molded into the dust cover, as well as a flat-faced trigger. Included with the Spec Series pistols are two 23-round magazines and a single flush-fit 15-round magazine. Also included with the kit is a M&P knife, with 4" blade and 9" overall length, along with a collectable M&P Spec Series Challenge Coin. The suggested retail price of this Spec Series pistol kit is $799. For more information, visit smith-wesson.com.
