Best Millimeter Is Back: The S&W 10mm M&P 2.0

Smith & Wesson has just unexpectedly released a 10mm M&P 2.0, helping to keep the cartridge relevant and providing a new powerful carry option for those that seek it.

Made famous by the FBI's adoption of the caliber following the Miami-Dade shootout in 1986, 10mm Auto has been contentious since the beginning. Many deemed it too powerful for the average shooter to realistically control, but others were impressed by its ballistic performance and were quick to adopt it as their primary handgun caliber. 10mm may have never fully caught on, but it never really died out either. Helping to keep it from falling by the wayside, Smith & Wesson have just released a 10mm M&P 2.0. As one of the most popular pistol platforms in the country, the M&P is already very familiar to many concealed carriers and law enforcement alike, so the addition of a 10mm chambering to the lineup will be very welcome to those seeking a bit more stopping power from their sidearm.

The 10mm M&P 2.0 is available in a few different configurations. It can come either with or without a manual safety and with either a 4-inch or 4.6-inch-long barrel, making a total of 4 models to choose from. All 10mm M&P models are also optics-ready and come standard with suppressor height sights. The trigger has also been redesigned into a flat-face style with the intention of providing a more consistent pull for more accurate shooting. Like all M&P pistols, the ergonomic grip inserts are interchangeable as well.

With a magazine capacity of 15 rounds, the 10mm M&P can pack quite a bit of firepower in a pretty compact package. Between the choices in barrel length and the ability to mount a red dot sight straight from the factory, the 10mm M&P could make for both a fine CCW piece or duty gun. MSRP starts at $654 and it’s available now.
