Smith & Wesson announced that it has expanded its line of M&P M2.0 Compact pistols to include an optics-ready variant, the M&P9 M2.0 Compact 4” OR. Building on the M&P9 M2.0 Compact pistol series, the new models are chambered in 9mm and feature a slide cut for optics, co-witness white-dot front and rear sights and enlarged forward slide serrations.
Vince Perreault, Smith & Wesson’s Brand Marketing Manager, said, “The use of optics has become increasingly popular as handgun owners look for ways to enhance their accuracy and shooting experience. To meet the demands of our consumers, the M&P9 M2.0 Compact is now able to accept many popular slide-mounted optics, straight from the factory.”
Purpose-built for both personal and professional use, the M&P9 M2.0 Compact pistols include the M2.0 feature set and are available with or without an ambidextrous manual thumb safety. Chambered in 9mm with a 4” barrel, the M&P9 M2.0 Compact OR comes standard with seven mounting plates designed to fit popular slide-mounted optics, two 15-round magazines, four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts and more.
The MSRP on the M&P9 M2.0 Compact OR pistols is $616. For more information Smith & Wesson firearms, including this new optics-ready M&P9 M2.0, visit smith-wesson.com.
