Building on Smith & Wesson’s M&P C.O.R.E. (Competition Optics Ready Equipment) series, the gun maker’s famed Performance Center has engineered new models primarily to meet the needs of competitive shooters. A new M&P with a ported barrel and slide (M&P 9 shown in the above video) is one of four ported models introduced this year to keep muzzle flip under control as well as reduce recoil. Further enhancements include a Performance Center sear, which means quicker resets and clean, factory-set trigger pulls of 4 lbs., 8 ozs. that are user-adjustable. The models also come with three interchangeable textured Palmswell grip sizes for better control and fit. Available in 9 mm and .40 S&W with either 4.25” or 5” barrel lengths, the total package has an MSRP of $812.
