Gun Review: Smith & Wesson M2.0 handgun in 9mm, 40 S&W (VIDEO)
By Jacki Billings
Smith & Wesson launched a brand new pistol platform called the M2.0 ahead of SHOT Show this year. Offered in several set-ups, the new M2.0 was touted as “one of the most advanced production pistols on the market.” When Smith & Wesson dropped the new digs, I knew I had to get my hands on it.
The M2.0 arrived at my FFL a little over a month ago and since then I’ve had the pleasure of taking her round the block to see just how capable this new M&P really is.

Smith & Wesson’s M2.0 comes in three builds – 4.25-inch and 5-inch barrel length 9mms and a 4.25-inch barrel 40 S&W. All three configurations are available with a manual safety or without, depending on personal preference. For this review, I received the 4.25-inch model chambered in 9mm with manual safety. Overall length on this model comes in at 7 inches with the pistol weighing 24.7 ounces, making it only a bit smaller than the Glock 17.
