Smith & Wesson is proud to announce the new full-size M&P 5.7 pistol with a 22-round capacity. In an effort to enhance the performance of the increasingly popular 5.7x28mm round in a polymer handgun platform, Smith & Wesson set out to deliver a new and innovative design that will offer a more reliable, accurate, and consistent shooting experience. Designed within the M&P5.7 is Smith & Wesson's new gas-operated, locked-breech, rotating TempoTM Barrel System. Developed to harness the speed of the round, this new 5-inch barrel allows for a quicker extraction once the bullet passes the gas port, creating a more secured fireform effect. This key feature allows for increased precision following the first trigger pull and works to utilize the ballistic advantages of the 5.7x28mm round.

The M&P5.7 is slide cut for optics to accommodate your preferred micro red dots, has a Picatinny- style rail for added accessories, and includes a 1/2x28 threaded muzzle with thread protector to allow for suppressed shooting capabilities. Its single-action flat-face trigger maintains a crisp break and is designed to allow for consistent finger placement that translates to more accurate and repeatable shooting. This pistol boasts a 22-round capacity and ships with two magazines. With increasing popularity of the 5.7x28mm cartridge and an MSRP of $699, keep an eye out for a complete review of thew new M&P5.7 pistol in an upcoming issue of Firearms News.
