Smith & Wesson's M&P line continues to be one of the most popular brands in the industry, and 2013 offers a series of new M&P models designed with the competitive shooter in mind. Based on the Pro Series line of competition-ready firearms, the M&P C.O.R.E. (Competition Optics Ready Equipment) models offer consumers a platform that's already ready to have any accessory optics added to it. The C.O.R.E. pistols are engineered to accept six popular styles of competition based optics, and should meet any demand a gun owner may have.

Four models will be initially available in the C.O.R.E. design: The M&P9, M&P9L, M&P40 and M&P40L.

The C.O.R.E. line is designed to work in conjunction with the Trijicon RMR, C-More STS, Leupold DeltaPoint, Docter, Insight MRDS and JPoint.
