The new Smith & Wesson Performance Center M&P45 Shield pistol (main image, SKU 11629) is now offered with factory-ported barrels and slides, designed to help reduce muzzle flip and get shooters back on target faster. This version of the M&P45 Shield pistol can be purchased with either adjustable HI-VIZ fiber-optic sights or Tritium Night Sights (SKU 11727), and is available in either 9 mm or .40 S&W calibers. 

And, for the first time, customers can “hot rod” their M&P pistols with the new Performance Center C.O.R.E . Slide Kit (multiple SKUs). Each kit comes with a ported barrel and slide. The slide is cut to accept five different optic mounting plates. A white-dot front sight and drift-adjustable rear sight allow for easy target acquisition. Three C.O.R.E. style palmswells are also included, which allow users to customize the grip and feel of their M&Ps, enhancing the pistol’s natural 18 degree grip angle. Slide kits are available for a number of different pistol configurations.
