Smith & Wesson, one of America’s longest-standing, leading firearm brands for over 164 years, has added subcompact pistols to their popular lineup of M&P 2.0 handguns. Headquartered in Springfield, MA, S&W delivers unmatched superiority through innovative pistols, revolvers, rifles, and accessories. Adding confidence to every shooting experience, every Smith & Wesson product is built with precision and unrivaled craftsmanship at the forefront.

“As the M&P M2.0 pistol series has continued to expand, we have worked to introduce pistols that fit a variety of different needs: from professional use, to recreational shooting, to home defense, to concealed carry,” said Jan Mladek, General Manager of Smith & Wesson and M&P brands. “The M&P M2.0 Subcompact is designed for every day carry – its shorter frame makes it more concealable while still maintaining a higher double-stack magazine capacity.”

In addition to the M2.0, Shield M2.0, and M2.0 Compact, Smith&Wesson now offers subcompact pistols in 9mm and 45 Auto.

M&P9 2.0 Subcompact Series

Featuring a 3.6" barrel, the subcompact line of 9mm 2.0 handguns hold 12 + 1 rounds with the two 12-round magazines Smith & Wesson is including with these striker-fired pistols. The pistols are offered with or without a manual thumb safety, whichever you prefer. Customers can upgrade capacity with two magazine sleeves to fit both the 17-round full-size and 15-round compact size magazines. The grip can also be customized with four interchangeable palmswell grips S&W is also including with the new M&P9 2.0 Subcompact Pistol.
