Nov. 29, 2022, Springfield, MA. – Smith & Wesson Brands, Inc. has released a new member of the M&P metal-framed series, the Performance Center M&P 9 M2.0 Competitor.

This metal-framed 9mm pistol comes with a 5-inch barrel, has been designed to have an enhanced sear for lighter, crisper trigger let-off, and includes a flared magazine well for fast and efficient reloads.

Boasting a new look, the lightening cuts on both the top and sides of the slide ultimately reduce the amount of weight in front of the chamber and, in return, are engineered to help improve the recoil balance point. The slide is cut for optics, includes a fiber optic front sight and blacked out serrated rear sight.

The Competitor comes with an oversized mag release that is reversible for both right and left-handed users and ships with a total of four magazines. Models available include 10+1 or 17+1 round capacities with a Tungsten Gray Cerakote or black Armornite slide finish.
