Smith & Wesson’s new CSX 9 mm micro-sized pistol is built on an aluminum alloy frame with interchangeable polymer back straps, providing users the ability to customize their level of concealment and ergonomic fit. With an impressive 12+1 capacity, the CSX also comes with an additional 10-round magazine. MSRP is $609.
Single-action-only, the CSX is equipped with a 3.1-inch barrel (1:10-inch twist) and a flat-faced trigger. The CSX was also designed with flexibility in mind. Despite its micro-sized frame, the CSX includes ambidextrous slide releases and manual safeties. Additionally, the CSX has interchangeable magazine release buttons, giving left-handed shooters the option to convert from the standard right-hand magazine release.
While the CSX is packed with many rich new features, it also boasts some of Smith & Wesson’s classic design characteristics, such as an optimized 18-degree grip angle and textured front and back straps. The slide has serrations on the front and rear to help with slide manipulation. Plus, the rear serrations are accentuated with a flared design on both sides.
Says John Myles, Smith & Wesson Senior Product Manager:
“Since the launch of the M&P Shield pistol, Smith & Wesson has been invested in the compact concealed carry firearm market. Last year, we modernized and updated the legacy platform by increasing capacity and updating the trigger geometry with the release of the Shield Plus. With the design of the CSX, we started with a fresh canvas, providing the consumer with a completely different option for concealed carry.”
As mentioned, the new Smith & Wesson CSX is priced at $609. Learn more at smith-wesson.com.
