NRA Gun of the Week: Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0 Pistol

posted on July 29, 2017

The striker-fired, semi-automatic M&P9 M2.0 from Smith & Wesson provides users with enhanced features over its predecessor. For example, the frame of the second-generation M&P9 has been augmented to lower the height of the bore’s axis, and an extended, stainless-steel chassis adds to the frame’s strength and rigidity. The polymer frame anchors in the hand by way of improved texturing, and the gun’s interchangeable grip inserts (four available) make customization easy. The trigger was also improved to give a lighter and crisper pull with the addition of a more tactile and audible reset. In his 2017 feature story, American Rifleman’s Brian Sheetz wrote, “For the many civilian shooters who have already hitched their wagons to the Smith & Wesson brand—and to the M&P banner and the polymer pistols that represent it—the M&P M2.0 should prove pleasantly reassuring.” To learn more about the Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0, check out week’s NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by American Rifleman’s Christopher Olsen.
