Smith & Wesson Launches New M&P 10mm M2.0

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- Smith & Wesson Brands, Inc. (NASDAQ Global Select: SWBI), a leader in firearm manufacturing and design, today unveiled the latest expansion in its M&P M2.0 line of handguns. The new standard 10mm comes with enhanced features like an optics cut slide with the C.O.R.E.™ system that enables users to mount a variety of popular optics. This handgun is designed to carry an impressive 15 + 1 capacity, ships with two magazines, and, reflecting the needs of the consumer, features Smith & Wesson’s brand new M2.0 flat face trigger design, which is designed to optimize trigger finger placement to allow for more consistent and accurate shooting.

John Myles, Smith & Wesson’s Senior New Product Manager, said, “Having not made a 10mm semi-automatic hand gun since the 1990’s, it’s a pleasure to re-enter that space with the M&P10mm M2.0 pistol. The 10mm caliber has its own following, and our customers have been asking us to bring one back. We are excited to launch this product using the M&P45 M2.0 as a building block to support existing aftermarket accessories that are readily available, as well as adding new enhanced features like the optics ready slide and the new M2.0 flat face trigger.”

These new handguns are purpose-built with the end consumer in mind. They include the M2.0 features and are available with or without an ambidextrous manual thumb safety. Smith & Wesson will offer a shorter 4” configuration of the handgun to allow for quicker clearance of a holster or a slightly longer 4.6” configuration to provide for a longer sight radius to optimize the accuracy of the barrel’s 1-in-10 twist rate. The M&P10mm M2.0 comes with the familiar 18-degree grip angle, four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts, and enhanced grip texture to help manage recoil.

The MSRP on the M&P10mm pistol is $654.00 to $665.00.

After S&W climbed in bed with the Clinton Administration, I “divested” myself of every S&W product that I owned and swore i would never do business with them again. Yes, I realize that the company that owned the brand at the time sold it to new owners. I don’t care. Just like the new owners of a toxic waste dump, when they bought it they bought the taint with it.

Hell will freeze over before I buy anything with S&W on it.

Ho-hum……..S&W is a “Smthy-come-lately.” Will continue with my Glock G40 MOS until S&W offers a 10MM in longer barrel than a 4.6″…..minimum 5″, preferably a 6″ as the G40. Move along, nothing to see here……..

Well it about time, should be one of S&W new best sellers. The Glock 20 is a fringing brick and the SA XDM is an ergonomic nightmare so if it’s anything like S&W’s M&P 45 it’s a winner in it class! (high capacity 10mm Tupperware) On paper looks better than the M&P 45 given the upgraded trigger and such. Now for all those Sig fans waiting for the P320 10mm, well you can just keep waiting for another five years plus or buy this. I thought S&W was slow to market but lately they been listing the customer demands and… Read more »

Chris Bartocci of Small Arms Solutions says the Glock 20 is the most durable and reliable of all the 10mm pistols. So why would I settle for anything less? https://youtu.be/4aQolVwYYO0

A .45 super has about the same ftlbs of energy with using the same 45 pistol. No need to buy a new gun. It just needs to be modified with some new springs!

Now I can fire .45, .45+P, and .45 super in the same pistol w/o changing anything except the ammo!

No. For now it comes with a 4” & 4.6” barrel.

I wonder what the service life is for a M&P in 10 mm? I used to compete in ipsc and idpa. I averaged 8 k rounds per month in practice alone. It took about 9+ years to wear out a good Colt or Para. Had 1.2 MILLION rounds on the Para before the frame cracked. Both were 45 ACP. Ten mm has a lot of recoil when compared to anything else. I remember when Colt made their 1911 in 10mm, the result was cracked frames and that was a steel framed gun. Maybe the M&P will hold up, I hope… Read more »

Only time will tell how reliable they are. The Glock 20 says it can be done, if one follows proper procedures on maintenance.

I want one! I wonder if it can stand the full power or near full power loads, not just the watered-down stuff from American Eagle and similar.

Also, I hope it is just an optical illusion but the trigger safety looks a bit on the delicate or fragile side to me. Is this really somwhere that we need skeletonization?

I’m guessing its designed to expel dirt and debris better.
