Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0 Competitor

Smith & Wesson has just announced the M&P9 M2.0 Competitor, a new metal-framed 9mm handgun from the S&W Performance Center designed for competition.

The M&P9 M2.0 Competitor is intended for exactly what its name implies: competition. Right out of the box, this metal-framed 9mm pistol is built to give competitive shooters the edge. The Competitor comes with a 5-inch barrel, has an enhanced sear for lighter, crisper trigger let-off, and includes a flared magazine well for fast and efficient reloads.

Boasting a new look, the aggressive lightening cuts on both the top and sides of the slide ultimately reduce the weight of the gun and surprisingly beats the standard polymer-framed M&P9 by a few ounces as well. (29 ounces versus 29.3 ounces). In return it also helps improve the recoil balance point. The slide is cut for optics, includes a fiber optic front sight, and blacked out serrated rear sight.

The Competitor comes with an oversized mag release that is reversible for both right and left-handed users and ships with a total of four magazines. Choose from models available in 10+1 or 17+1 round capacities with a Tungsten Gray Cerakote or black Armornite slide finish.

Regardless of the model chosen, all have an MSRP of $999.
