Smith & Wesson has added a high-spec Performance Center variant to its M&P metal-framed 9 mm pistol lineup that’s designed for competitive shooters.
Built for competition right out of the box, Smith & Wesson said the Performance Center M&P9 M2.0 Competitor is “designed to give competitive shooters the edge.” Most of the additions from the Performance Center are sport-centric, including a five-inch barrel, flared magwell, oversized mag release and similar upgrades.
As for the frame, it is made of aluminum. The slide is cut for optics and includes a fiber-optic front sight, along with a blacked-out and serrated rear sight. Also sporting lightening cuts on its top and sides, the slide’s reduced weight should help improve the recoil balance point.
In addition, the oversized mag release is reversible for both right- and left-handed users. The Competitor pistol ships with four magazines. Four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts are also included.
Four models of the Competitor are available, including 17- and 10-round versions and two color options.
MSRP is $999 for all four models of the Smith & Wesson Performance Center M&P9 M2.0 Competitor pistol. Learn more at smith-wesson.com.
