Smith & Wesson has just released the M&P9 M2.0 METAL, the first all-metal configuration in the M&P line.
There’s no question that polymer-framed pistols have become the standard for all modern autoloading handgun designs. For those who still prefer the feel and weight of a metal gun, the selection of new-production automatics was mostly limited to DA/SA wonder nines. Smith & Wesson’s new M&P9 M2.0 METAL is changing that, however, by bringing the features and form factor of a modern polymer striker-fired to an all-metal frame.
Because the M&P9 2.0 Metal has the same profile as the polymer-framed version, it will fit all existing holsters and uses the same 17-round magazines. The only difference is in the material used, as the new version’s frame is built using T6 aluminum. Each pistol will also feature an optics-ready slide, a flat-face trigger and interchangeable palmswell grip inserts.
Andrew Gore, Handgun Product Manager at Smith & Wesson, said this about the new handgun:
Combining the proven performance of the M&P pistol series with the 170-year history of reliable Smith & Wesson metal handguns, the M&P9 M2.0 METAL forges the quality of our past with enhanced modern-day features in an offering that will give an edge to both new and experienced firearms enthusiasts…
Other features of the M&P9 2.0 Metal include a Tungsten Gray Cerakote finish, an improved trigger, forward slide serrations and a standard accessory rail. Each pistol will include two magazines and four sizes of interchangeable grip inserts. MSRP is $899 and it’s available now.
