M&P 9 M2.0 3.6" Compact

About 40 minutes ago, Smith & Wesson tweeted that they are introducing a new M&P M2.0 Compact with a shorter 3.6″ barrel, available in both 9mm and 40 S&W.  I personally am excited about this because I have a few 1.0 Compact 9Cs and wanted a 2.0 version.

The barrel on the new 2.0 is just 1/10″ longer than the original Compact 1.0 (overall length is 6.8″, or just 1/10″ more than the original M&P Compact 1.0 version), yet it will have the same 15+1 round capacity (in 9mm) and 13+1 round capacity (in 40 S&W) as the current M2.0 Compact.  This means that the overall height should remain the same as on the current Compact M2.0 model with 4″ barrel.

Features of the M&P M2.0 3.6″ Compact

  • Two 15 round magazines
  • Four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts (backstraps)
  • Aggressive grip texture
  • Lighter, crisper trigger pull with tactile and audible reset
  • Accurate 1 in 10” twist barrel
  • Extended rigid embedded stainless steel chassis to provide more torsional rigidity when firing
  • Armornite® durable corrosion resistant finish.

Although I would have preferred that this new 3.6″ Compact have a shorter grip (like the original 1.0 Compact) to accommodate a 12 round magazine (with a mag extension sleeve for a 15 round mag), I will still check it out when it becomes available at my local gun store.
