Smith & Wesson Releases M&P 5.7 Handgun in Flat Dark Earth

Smith & Wesson Introduces Affordable M&P 5.7 Pistol

January 23, 2023

Smith & Wesson has announced the release of their new M&P 5.7 pistol at the 2023 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.

“This super slim, .47 caliber pistol uses a new rotary-locked barrel system and was launched today at the 2023 SHOT Show in Las Vegas,” explains the company.

The M&P 5.7 has a 5-inch barrel and uses Smith & Wesson’s new rotary-locked Tempo barrel system, which consists of a lock-breech, two-part barrel with proprietary gas system.

“The new Tempo system is designed to harness the speed of the round and creates a more secured fireform effect. This key feature allows for increased precision following the first trigger pull,” adds the company.

The M&P 5.7 is chambered in 5.7x28mm or 5.7 NATO, known for being tiny but ultra-speedy and flat-shooting.

The pistol has an asking price of just $699 and is billed as a versatile and fun gun, but due to its size, it’s not ideal for carry.

The slide is optics-ready, making the M&P 5.7 a potential varmint or squirrel gun. The pistol comes with two 22-round magazines and features an internal hammer, an ambidextrous slide stop, a reversible magazine release button, and a flat-faced, single-action trigger.

Capacity: 22+1
Action: Internal Hammer Fired
Barrel Length: 5 inches, threaded
Grip: Polymer
Sights: White Dot
Optic Ready: Yes
Safety: Optional Thumb Safety
Frame: Polymer
