Jan Mladek, General Manager for Smith & Wesson and M&P Brands, said, “The M&P brand has become very popular with consumers and, in response, we have continued to expand the family to offer our customers a wide variety of options to meet their needs. In 2018, consumers will find some exciting new additions: For those looking for a new suppressor-ready M&P pistol, we have expanded the M&P M2.0 platform to include threaded barrel options, and the popular M&P15-22 SPORT rifle is now available in a new Blue Platinum finish.”

M&P9 M2.0 and M&P45 M2.0 – Threaded Barrel

To further build out the capabilities of the M&P platform, the M&P9 and M&P45 M2.0 pistols are now available with a threaded barrel for use with suppressors. In addition to the threaded barrel, these pistols also include suppressor-height white dot sights, a barrel thread protector, and the popular M&P M2.0 feature set.

M&P15-22 SPORT Rifle – Blue Platinum

The M&P15-22 SPORT rifle, chambered in .22 LR, is available in a Robin’s Egg Blue Platinum finish for 2018. The rifle features a 10-inch M&P slim handguard that incorporates the popular Magpul M-LOK system, as well as removable Magpul MBUS front and rear folding sights.

In addition to these new releases for 2018 at SHOT Show, the company will also display its latest introductions to the M&P M2.0 pistol platform, including the M&P Shield M2.0 and M&P M2.0 compact pistols.

M&P Shield M2.0 Pistol Series

Designed for concealed carry, the M&P Shield M2.0 pistol family builds upon the popular M&P M2.0 platform. The new M&P Shield M2.0 pistol features an aggressive grip texture and smoother, lighter trigger pull. The M&P Shield pistol is also available with an integrated Crimson Trace red or green laser in 9mm and .40 S&W, providing consumers with a concealed carry solution that features two laser colors, two modes, and ambidextrous laser activation.

M&P M2.0 Compact Pistol Series

Bridging the gap between concealment and shootability, the M&P M2.0 Compact pistol builds upon the popularity of the new M&P M2.0 platform in a versatile carry-size pistol configuration. The M&P M2.0 Compact pistol series features a 4” barrel for easy concealment, and either a 15 round capacity in 9mm or 13 round capacity in .40 S&W.
