In an effort to enhance the performance of the increasingly popular 5.7x28mm round in a polymer handgun platform, Smith & Wesson set out to deliver a new and innovative design that will offer a more reliable, accurate, and consistent shooting experience. Designed within the M&P5.7 is Smith & Wesson’s new gas-operated, locked-breech, rotating Tempo™ Barrel System. Developed to harness the speed of the round, this new 5-inch barrel allows for a quicker extraction once the bullet passes the gas port, creating a more secured fireform effect. This key feature allows for increased precision following the first trigger pull and works to utilize the ballistic advantages of the 5.7x28mm round.

“The M&P5.7 is an exciting new pistol from Smith & Wesson that incorporates a gas-operated Tempo™ Barrel System to effectively harness the 5.7x28mm round, creating a lighter recoil for an overall better shooting experience. Like all Smith & Wesson firearms, the M&P5.7 is proudly made entirely in the USA and is backed by the Smith & Wesson Limited Lifetime Service Policy. Whatever your purpose, the M&P5.7 is versatile, fun, and a must-have,” says Andrew Gore, Product Manager, Handguns.

The M&P5.7 is slide cut for optics to accommodate your preferred micro red dots, has a Picatinny-style rail for added accessories, and includes a 1/2×28 threaded muzzle with thread protector to allow for suppressed shooting capabilities. Its single-action flat-face trigger maintains a crisp break and is designed to allow for consistent finger placement that translates to more accurate and repeatable shooting. This pistol boasts a 22-round capacity and ships with two magazines.

Pick up the TEMPO with accurate and consistent results from the M&P®5.7.

Smith & Wesson M&P5.7 Pistol in 5.7x28mm MSRP is $699.00

Good luck to all that buy a 5.7……..

5.7 Ammo = $$$$$. Plus there’s only one manufacturer producing 5.7 ammo at this time so it’s hard to find, rare as hen’s teeth.

Interesting, apparently the 5.7×28 has not ‘died’ out. I’m guessing that they are trying to snag some market share before Ruger (pistol and carbine) and Palmetto State (pistol) get it all. Lower price points than the original FN so perhaps they are all on to something 😉 Maybe more viable choices will drive the price of the ammo back down to a reasonable level?


What is the weight, velocity, and accuracy?
