|Officially unveiled at the 2012 NRA Show, the new M&P SHIELD™ is a powerful, slim, lightweight, and concealable polymer pistol. Designed as an extension to our popular M&P pistol line, the M&P SHIELD™ delivers outstanding comfort, accuracy and performance in a carry or concealed carry platform.
Comfort and confidence are the first impressions felt when handling the new M&P SHIELD™ but it delivers high marks on performance as well by incorporating many of the following proven, professional grade features found in our full size M&P™ pistol.
|• Striker fired action – which delivers a smooth, short, consistent and dependable trigger pull
• Stainless steel internal chassis – which reduces flex & provides an extremely stable shooting platform
• Patented take down lever & sear deactivation system – which allows service without pulling the trigger
• Optimized 18 degree grip angle – which provides a natural point of aim and rapid target acquisition
The M&P SHIELD™ comes chambered in both 9mm and .40 S&W and comes standard with two magazines – one compact for easy concealment and the other extended for full grip and increased capacity. With an MSRP of $449 and the backing of Smith & Wesson’s lifetime service policy, we believe the M&P SHIELD™ is destined to become the standard for professional grade concealed carry.
