Weapons Wednesday: Smith & Wesson Updates the M&P Line to “2.0”

Interesting bit of gun industry news out of the venerable yet cutting-edge Smith & Wesson:

The now-classic M&P (Military and Police) was initially released in 2005 and has seen a number of variants including the Pro, Bodyguard, Shield and Compact follow up over the past decade.

The new M2.0 will be offered in three calibers, 9mm, .40S&W and .45ACP and will have a more aggressive texture with four interchangeable palm swell inserts (legacy models had three), a crisper trigger with an audible reset, and an extended stainless chassis.

I own, as you may know, an M&P 45 and I love it. Not sure I’ll run out and get the new version, or more accurately I’m sure I won’t, as mine runs just fine and I have no reason to dump it. HOWEVER, if it is the improvement it seems to be, then those in the market for a carry gun could do a lot worse.

(I’ll ask the Krampus if he’s getting one. HA!)
