Smith & Wesson proudly introduces a new addition to its Spec Series of limited edition handguns, the Performance Center M&P9 Metal M2.0, a remarkable fusion of performance and style.
This latest entry from the company’s renowned Performance Center line emphasizes enhanced performance features, marking a significant evolution from its original polymer-framed design.
The Performance Center M&P9 Metal M2.0 Range of Advanced Features
Notably, it includes a Faxon EXOS compensator on its threaded barrel, a highly sought-after accessory for 9mm pistols, which greatly reduces felt recoil and muzzle rise.
The gun also boasts a C.O.R.E. optic-mounting system, allowing compatibility with most popular handgun red dots.
This system ensures that the pistol can be used with all holsters designed for 5-inch M&P pistols.
Further enhancing its design, the pistol features a slide with lightening cuts to improve reliability, especially when using a suppressor in place of the compensator.
Additionally, the handgun is equipped with suppressor-height iron sights and an innovatively designed sear for a lighter, crisper trigger let-off.
Aesthetically, the Performance Center M&P9 Metal M2.0 stands out with its angled compensator that mirrors the style of TTI Combat Master Glocks. The OD Green Cerakote finish on the metal frame offers a striking two-toned color scheme that enhances the gun’s overall appearance.
