Overall length is for the M&P12 pump-action is 27.8 inches. Additionally, the M&P grip comes with four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts.


The M&P12 pump-action is chambered for 12-gauge, 3-inch shells, but is able to accept a combination of standard 2¾-inch, 3-inch magnum and mini-shell loads. In addition, the M&P12 boasts completely ambidextrous controls, M&P grip, Picatinny-style top rail and M-LOK attachment points.

The 19-inch barrel is made from 4140 Chrome-Moly Vanadium Steel. Smith & Wesson says the weight is 132.8 ounces.

Built on a reliable, pump-action platform, the M&P12 shotgun has two independent magazine tubes with load-assist buttons to simplify loading and unloading. Each tube can hold up to seven rounds of standard 2¾-inch shells, or up to six rounds of 3-inch magnum shells. Mini-shells can also be used. As for the magazine tubes, they are easily selected using a push button selector, also providing a visual cue of which magazine tube is feeding the barrel.

The M&P12 shotgun ships with both modified and cylinder choke tubes, four palmswell grip inserts, 15-inch cable lock, choke tube wrench and a hard plastic, foam-lined case.
