Athlon staff members took on steel targets with the pistol, littered at nearly every conceivable distance out to more than 100 yards. Plate racks, static steel, dueling trees – you name it. Regardless of the target presentation, the M&P M2.0 Subcompact Pistol proved up to the task.

“Now this has all the M2.0 enhancements, including interchangeable palm swell grips, and that M2.0 crisp trigger pull,” said Matt Spafford, Media Manager, Smith & Wesson. “Plus, this gun also comes with magazine extenders for both 17-round and 15-round magazines in 9mm, allowing you to use it with a variety of magazine options.”

The M&P M2.0 features an extended stainless steel chassis. It delivers a high grip-to-bore ration, and low bore axis, which aids tremendously in recoil control. Four interchangeable backstraps ship with the gun, which should enable nearly everyone to find that near perfect, custom-like grip. Finally, the grip comes textured, with metal components wearing a tough Armornite finish. There’s just so much to like about the new M2.0 Subcompact.
