Smith & Wesson has released a new entry in its highly popular Spec Series of firearms, and this time it’s the first to come out of their renowned Performance Center line. The M&P9 Metal M2.0 Spec Series places a stronger emphasis on performance than ever before, and features enhanced features such as an all-metal frame – a change from the initial introduction as a polymer-framed striker gun.

Key Features

  • Faxon compensator on the threaded barrel
  • C.O.R.E. optic-mounting system
  • Slide with lightening cuts
  • New sear design for a lighter, crisp let-off

The C.O.R.E. system enables the pistol to accommodate a majority of popular handgun red dots, and works with all holsters made for 5-inch M&P pistols.

Comes as a Kit

The package comes in a hard case that includes four magazines (two 23-round mags and two 17-round mags), a collectible M&P Spec Series challenge coin, and a karambit-style knife. The MSRP is $999

Looks and Versatility

This new metal-framed M&P has a cool angled compensator reminiscent of the TTI Combat Master Glocks, and an OD Green Cerakote finish on the metal frame that gives it a two-toned color scheme that looks fantastic.

Smith & Wesson’s Take

“Our M&P polymer handguns have long been recognized for their reliability and ergonomic design,” said Smith & Wesson’s product manager, Corey Beaudreau. “By combining these trusted attributes with the durability of the Metal M2.0 platform and adding modern performance upgrades, we were able to elevate the Spec Series to the next level. This design is a bridge between tradition and progress and offers a distinct edge across today’s dynamic shooting environments.”
