Aside from the M&P Shield, I’ve never been a fan of M&P pistols. I was continually surprised to see knowledgeable shooters compete with M&P’s — but not surprised that they’d changed the grip, sights, trigger and barrel. And then I shot the new full-sized Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0 featured in RF’s review. For all intents and purposes it’s a different gun. A better gun. Is the Smith & Wesson M&P9 2.0 Compact as good?

The M2.0 Compact isn’t another GLOCK “generation” with little more than cosmetic changes (OMG Becky front serrations!). While Smith gave their GLOCK 19-sized M&P an aesthetic upgrade, they addressed all the major ergonomic and functional “issues” that hamstrung their handgun. First and foremost: the grip.

A lot of people complain about the GLOCK’s shooting angle; its “unnatural” point-of-aim. But you can train yourself to acclimatize to its “quirks.” What the naysayers neglect to mention: the shape and texture of the GLOCK’s handle. How a handgun feels in your hand, how secure it is, has an enormous impact on your speed and accuracy.

The new Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0 Compact’s handle is perfectly comfortable and extremely grippy. It helps make the Compact a true hand-gun (singular). Thanks to the pistol’s geometry — low bore axis and all — and the grip’s simple shape and texture, you can get a rock-solid hold in single-handed fast-as-you-can-pull-the-trigger fire.

Comparing the Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0 Compact head-to-head with the GLOCK Gen 5 G19 — as everyone will — the Smith’s superior ergonomics are never in doubt. In fact, I can’t think of any current striker-fired pistol with such a great human-to-firearm interface. [Unlike the full-size version RF reviewed, our T&E gun had no external safety. I’d prefer one. If you do too, Smith makes ’em.]

Bonus! The M&P9 M2.0 Compact’s slide is easy to manipulate on the frame — which was a little surprising considering the gun’s minimal recoil. Again, a bit of mass on top of great geometry carries the day.

The Compact’s sights are bright white traditional 3-dot style, well suited for a tactical pistol. This rear sight on this version has a slight vertical angle on the rear sight, but it’s fairly smooth and doesn’t catch on a pocket or my belt for one-handed slide manipulation. As of this writing, S&W doesn’t offer a tritium night sight for the M2.0 Compact, as they do for the M2.0 Shield. I hope they add that option and fit a much more vertical notch on the rear slide, instead of the Shield’s ramp-style rear sight.

One of the few places without improvement: the Compact’s magazine well. There’s no flaring, enlarging or funneling. Reloading problems are a thing; any miss and the magazine will catch on one of the handle’s angles, slowing you down. A slightly flared and funneled mag well wouldn’t have created any additional bulk, and would’ve helped blind magazine insertion. It took them a few decades, but even GLOCK learned to funnel and flare their magazine well (that’s the G19 Gen 5 on the bottom in the photo above).

For everyday carry, the Compact’s dimensions are much more friendly than the full-size version. That’s from a guy who thinks the GLOCK 19 is the perfect size pistol. If you like the G19’s dimensions, you can keep the G19’s dimensions. As you can see above, the M2.0 Compact and the G19 Gen 5 are virtually identical in size.

The S&W Compact’s fairly narrow frame conceals easily while providing enough sight radius and hand purchase for fast, accurate fire. I ran the Bill Wilson 5X5 test quite a few times with the M2.0 Compact. I’ve never quite broken 20 seconds with a gun I’ve never shot before, but I consistently got close with the Smith. A lot of that has to do with the Compact’s new trigger.

Lest we forget, the original M&P’s trigger was widely regarded as the worst of any in a modern striker-fired pistol. So the M2.0’s “vastly improved” trigger arrived with low expectations. Talk about a reversal of fortune; the M2.0’s trigger sets a new standard, only equaled by the Walther PPQ.

The M&P9 M2.0 Compact’s trigger breaks at a little over five pounds, with a smooth pull and very little grit or stack. Like the full-size version, the new trigger is both a huge improvement and something of a disappointment. The trigger shoe is the issue. It’s simply too tightly curved and doesn’t allow comfortable finger placement. Nor does it give you many options on where you put your finger.

Because of the fairly small grip and my not small hands, I had to pull my trigger finger out of the trigger well to get any kind of consistent trigger pull. That left most of my finger outside the well, with only the last half of the tip of my trigger finger on the actual shoe. The pistol ships with no fewer than four backstraps. Swapping the standard backstrap for the largest one helped a bit. But a less extreme curvature of the trigger would have helped a lot.

If this were my only gun, as much as I appreciate the Compact’s new go pedal, I’d still fit the pistol with an aftermarket trigger. But I shoot a lot of different guns, so I can’t train on a single platform. If this was my EDC, and especially if it was my duty gun, I’d leave the factory trigger alone and let consistent training do its job. Bottom line: unlike the original M&P, an aftermarket trigger on the M2.0 is a nice-to-have, not a have-to-have.

As usual, after an initial lube of the gun, I never cleaned, lubed or disassembled the Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0 Compact. I shot over 500 rounds including IMI Di-Cut cartridges, FMJs and hollow points from various brands, in grains from 115 to 147. There were no problems of any kind at any time. Magazines always inserted securely and dropped with authority. I had no issues returning to battery with any round regardless of my grip.

The Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0 Compact presents the same problem I have with a lot of compact polymer pistols: my thumb tends to rest on top of the slide release, no matter what I do. I can’t bring my thumb lower in a two-handed grip because my other hand is there. I can’t bring my thumb higher because that’s where the slide is. And allowing my thumb to float above the slide is a bad idea on a lot of levels (so to speak).

Like the GLOCK 19 and the SIG SAUER P229, I just have to accept the fact that my thumb inadvertently presses the Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0’s slide release, causing intermittent failures of the slide-to-lock back on an empty magazine. I can live with that.

Disassembly remains as simple as it can be, but Suzie Safeties note: you will have to pull the trigger to get the slide to release from the frame. As always, make sure the gun is completely unloaded prior to attempting to disassemble the firearm.

After my trigger time with the full-sized Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0, I was looking forward to shooting the Compact version, mostly because I liked the full-sized M2.0, but I’m not really looking for a gun that can double as a diving board. I wasn’t surprised with how well its smaller sibling handled recoil. The Compact is a fast, flat-shooting gun that barely moves in my hand.

Shooting of a bench, the M2.0 Compact’s accuracy was very good, not stellar. Firing at 25 yards off a bag, I shot two to 2 1/2″ five round groups. The IMI 115gr Di-Cut round printed at 2 1/2″, as did other rounds of the same weight.

I was expecting the M2.0 Compact to replicate the full-size M2.0’s distaste for heavier grain bullets, but the Cap Arms 147 grain FMJ was my best scoring round, averaging a 2″ group. This is a particularly soft-shooting round, an oddity amongst the heavier grained 9mms. What this pistol didn’t like: any of the other 147gr rounds or 124gr+P rounds I put through it, all of which shot closer to the 3-inch mark.

Smith & Wesson have created (recreated?) an American-designed, American-made gun that competes with anything in its class. This is a great firearm that would be a good value at a higher price. I don’t know if large police departments who’ve bought GLOCKs and SIGs for decades would make the switch to Smith, but they’d be fools not to consider it. As would you.

Ratings (out of five stars):

Style and Appearance * * * *
I don’t particularly dig the look of any of the modern polymer pistols, but this one at least has some style to it, with matching slide cuts front and back.

Customization * * * * *
Backwards compatible with the aftermarket options available on the original, and multiple palm swells as well as magazine base plates are included. There’s not much you can’t do to this gun.

Reliability * * * * *

Accuracy * * * *
It didn’t drop below the 2-inch mark, but it hovered right there. For five-round groups at 25 yards with a couple of different weights and a wide range of brands, that’s good performance in a firearm of this size.

Overall * * * *
This is a great value on an American-made pistol. I’d carry it any day and be very confident in it’s performance. Smith & Wesson paid attention, and stepped up big time. The lack of renewed attention to the magazine well, no factory option for night sights (yet) and a less-than-perfect trigger geometry keep this gun out of the five star category.

      • No joke. I read “best trigger this side of a PPQ,” and thought what about the vp9? Human interface? vp9? accuracy, flat shooting? Wait… no mention of the vp9 at all? Heck, no mention of the P-10C either, and I dare say all of these things could be said for it also. Nope, the VP isn’t a perfect gun (I prefer hammer fired HKs, thank you), but in all fairness, it isn’t in the price range of the M&P compact, even though people are going to cross shop the two (or three… looking at you CZ).

    • I tried to like the PPQ because of its trigger. I ended up with a Performance Center M&P. With the smallest backstrap, it fits my hand better than does the PPQ.

  1. Three times, you called the gun’s grip its “handle.”
    Please stop calling a gun’s grip its “handle”. That makes me wince, because people who refer to guns having a “handle” are usually the same people who call AR-15s “assault rifles”, magazines “clips”, 9mm “0.9mm” or “0.9mm caliber”, 5.56mm “0.556mm”, and 7.62mm “0.762mm”.

    For example, see this article, which says, “I had an SKS which is .762 millimeter, I had an AK-74 which is a .554 millimeter and I had an AR-15 which I just got for Christmas which is a .556 millimeter.”
    [Gee, did those microscopic guns come with a set of 3-inch tall toy soldiers? LOL]

  2. This is completely off topic but I am now getting images of Adolf Hitler among your sidebar ads. I am not going to go all snowflake and pretend to be outraged or offended but is this really necessary? Some of us like to read this at work and would rather not be visiting websites with hitler on them. I think gun owners are called nazis enough without crap like this.

  3. I have a shield and a full size m&p 2.0. Honestly, yeah I squeeze the trigger to take down but there is a disconnector and my 2.0 has a tool in the grip for it but I’ve yet to use it. That’s the only thing I’ll choose to take issue with-not reading the directions. I can’t see it being any different than it’s brothers.

    • You are right, it is possible to use a tool that is hidden under the back strap inside the handle that when used would mean that you would not have to pull the trigger to disassemble the gun. I discovered this, when I read the directions, in order to swap the back straps.
      so yes, it is possible. And because of its difficulty, no one is going to use that. As you have found yourself.

      • That’s what I like about the Ruger SR line: just push the ejector down and it drops the trigger bar so it won’t engage the striker. No tools needed and no dry fire (but seriously you people that actually have a problem with that procedure just need to wake up and actually engage your brain in said activity. If you can’t safely dry fire a gun, I don’t think I’ll trust you with live ammunition either.)

  4. When evaluating the accuracy of a compact pistol with iron sights at 25 yards, the difference between a 2 1/2″ group and a 3″ group is not statistically significant. Just sayin’. In any real world situation, any defensive pistol on the market is going to be more accurate than the shooter’s ability to aim it.

    Otherwise, nice review! Good to see S&W stepping up and making real improvements.

  5. “A lot of people complain about the GLOCK’s shooting angle; its “unnatural” point-of-aim. But you can train yourself to acclimatize to its “quirks.” What the naysayers neglect to mention: the shape and texture of the GLOCK’s handle. How a handgun feels in your hand, how secure it is, has an enormous impact on your speed and accuracy.”

    ??? So if you practice a lot, you can train your hand to correctly point a GLOCK that won’t help you do it instinctively, and (once trained) you will have essentially beaten your way back to zero (the starting line)??? How a handgun feels in your hand should NOT = a GLOCK’s wrongly-canted dry bar of soap texture.

    Plastic guns suck in all things but weight, but the give-backs for that weight are lousy. IF YOU HOLD THE DAMN HANDGUN UP IN PROFILE VIEW AND CAN SEE LIGHT COMING THROUGH, BETWEEN THE SLIDE AND FRAME, THAT’S
    W R O N G (e.g., M&P, Diamondback, GLOCK, etc., etc., etc.).

  6. Eh, no offense but S&W is not the quality it used to be. They resisted polymer frames for the longest time until glock stole the market and their ceo demanded they deliberately copy the glock 17 by throwing one on the table during a meeting and screaming at everybody about it. So, yeah they’re not on my list of companies to support.

      • It was discussed, in depth, in the book “Glock: The rise of America’s gun”, references were attached I had to look into it for myself.

      • It’s an infamous industry story that I believe was recounted from a first-hand experience.

        The CEO became frustrated and slammed it down on the table telling them that if they can’t beat it then just copy it.

        Thus we get the S&W Sigma, which became the S&W SDV9E. It looks like the bastard child of a Glock and an M&P. They were pretty craptastic pistols too, and S&W even got sued by Glock and lost for obvious reasons. This was a further embarrassment after they introduced their new .40S&W round… that Glock summarily beat them to the market on with the Glock 22.

        S&W was a different company then. They kowtowed to the anti-gun crowd and were resistant to change. At least when the M&P finally came out it was a breath of fresh air against the Glock, but for everything it got right it got something else… not wrong… but just not quite right.

        It took them a long enough time but when they finally refreshed the line with the M2.0 they have, in my opinion, created the best pistols on the market in their class. They definitely got the Shield right: it’s been the best selling pistol year over year, Glock breaks in at number 10 with the G19. Now that S&W finally listened and put out a G19 sized gun I think they may usurp Glock’s only position in the top 10.

        • When they give the Shield all the same ambi features the Compact has, I’ll buy it. It doesn’t seem like it’d be that hard to do.

  7. Instant skepticism when anyone compares any striker-fired handgun trigger to the PPQ. Now I’ll have to go find and dry fire one.

    • I have both and the PPQ trigger is better. I quit carrying my PPQ because I couldn’t get through half a magazine firing with my dominant hand only without dropping the Mag! My thumb is too long and the mag release spring too soft to prevent dropping the mag.

      The 2.0 Compact will replace my Glock 19 as my cool weather carry, once I run a few hundred rounds through it.

      • I’ve heard others have similar problems with the mag release on the PPQ M2. I was hoping someone who’s tried both would chime in about the triggers, so thank you.

    • Unfortunately Mr. Ayoob’s thumbs down grip works well one handed on an automatic, but not well two handed, at least not for me. It leaves very little contact on the gun with my support hand. I’ve tried it over and over again and I can’t control recoil as well as the more traditional thumbs up grip. This problem is magnified with any gun with a wider grip.

      • In all sincerity, why does your support hand have to touch the grip? A handgun is one of the few things we hold in two hands with an overlapping grip. I can’t think of any other object we hold with an overlapping grip. Broom, hands are separated. Axe same thing. Baseball bat, Sword – and the list goes on… With a sub-compact gun only my support index finger touches the bottom of the trigger guard. On larger guns the heel of my palm might touch the grip. The support hand to me reinforces the dominate hand grip and helps move the gun around in space. My support hand thumb can also lock down on my dominate hand thumb. With both thumbs locked down with a crush grip that gun isn’t going anywhere. I’ve seen so called experts on video having to readjust their grip every time they fire a gun with their thumbs up and complain about the slide locking or not locking because their thumbs are up. Or worse, get a FTE because their thumbs are in the way of the slide. It seems to me that thumbs locked down gives a stronger grip, more control of the gun and absolutely no chance of causing a malfunction. Which on the range is just annoying, but in the case of a DGU can make our gun not work. I want my gun to work then, especially then!

        • Whow, that’s a lot of stuff, overlapping grips n all that thumb position. I shoot one handed because it’s easier to throw the gun when it runs dry or jambs. I’m going to have to take a course on Ax slinging so I can throw a pistol with two hands.

  8. I have a magic tool that I use to take down my S&W by depressing the sear release — it’s called my pinkie! It’s a miracle!! My pinkie can press the sear release lever!!!

    When my pinkie isn’t handy, I use a different magic tool. It’s called a pencil! A pencil!!!

    Don’t pull the trigger.

  9. How’s the full dissassembly compared to Glock (3 pins, 1 tool)?

    Do the steel inserts make a big enough difference vs V 1.0?

    I’m really not sure why I’m asking when CZ P-10 has stolen my boogerhook.

    • I don’t know, I didn’t detail strip the gun, but when I think about it, I’ve never detail stripped a Glock either with the exception of when I wanted to Cerakote them. That’s really the only time I ever detail strip a gun. Otherwise there’s just no need.

      Yes, the steel inserts make a big difference. Side by side you can definitely feel it.

  10. I don’t know how America accepted the idea that pulling the trigger to take apart a gun was a good idea
    People can talk about “ using your brain”, etc but that is an invitation to a negligent discharge
    We in Anesthesia are trying to improve safety and we have found that wngineering safety into the equipment has huge benefits
    A gun should not require a trigger pull for routine field stripping !

    • Whether or not pulling the trigger is necessary, you deserve a kick in the ass if you field strip a gun without first verifying that it’s unloaded.

      • I don’ t pull the trigger to take down my M&P, even though I always check that it’s unloaded before. I’ve never had a negligent discharge, but I know that the brain is prone to making mistakes, especially when habits are involved.
        I’d hate to send a round into my kids’ room because I had a brain fart or got distracted at the wrong time.
        I’m also man enough to take my ego out of it and admit that I make mistakes, and even though the chances of an ND happening are extremely low, the costs if it does happen are unacceptably high.

  11. It does not require pulling the trigger to disassemble. All you need to do is push down on the sear disconnect lever and release the slide.

  12. You might think I’m a dummy but I just traded my beloved Shield 9 for a 2.0 compact. The longer barrel and round capacity is the main reason. I haven’t shot it yet but I cleaned it thoroughly. (After S&W ran a test round thru it they didn’t do an adequate cleaning as far as I’m concerned.) I also have a Shield 45 so I’m used to the gritty grip but I ended up putting a Hogue grip on the 45 and I’m a little more accurate with it now. The 2.0 grip appears to be fat enough so it may not get a Hogue added. I hope the new pistol will please me enough to make it a keeper. I’ve owned 6 S&W pistols and have never had a bad experience with any of them.

  13. Interesting comment by the author about the curved trigger. I am on my third Glock, and second Glock 19, thinking that this time I could get along with the trigger. Glocks force my trigger finger down into the guard and it pinches my finger. Doesn’t make any difference how I grip. I own and have fired probably 40 pistols and only Glocks with their flat, odd looking triggers do that to me.

    That doesn’t happen with the curved trigger on the M&P’s. I have the M2.0 9mm full size and the shield, the two of them the best semi autos I own. This compact is next, and i will sell that Glock 19 for whatever I can get, good riddance.

    • I have a G19 & G26. Both irritant my trigger finger on extended shootings. The 26 is difficult on mag changes because my middle finger is over the mag release as it protrudes thru the frame thus preventing mag release. The 19 is ok but the index finger rubbing the trigger guard is getting old. I’m looking at options and the S&W will get a hard look.

      • Arteest, I have figured out why the Glock forces my finger down into the guard. The Glocks require the shooter to use the pad of your finger on the trigger. That is the correct way and the way shooters are taught. However, no one told me that sixty years ago and I put the first joint of my finger on the trigger and I’m not changing now. It works fine, I shoot well, except with Glocks and they pinch me. I tried it on my G19 and it didn’t pinch when I used the pad of my trigger finger, but I don’t like shooting like that.
        I sold that Glock and will never have another one. In the meantime I picked up the S&W M&P 9mm compact and I love it. Same size as the G19, easy to conceal, shoots like a dream.

        • We are probably about the same age. I use the pad of my index finger up to the first joint but the side and tip of my finger rub the trigger guard. I’ve been tempted to take my Dremel tool to the inside of the guard to add clearance but don’t want to ruin it’s trade in value. My finger has a slight curvature which doesn’t help matters either.

        • I’m with you on that. Love my 2.0 compact and have run a little over 600 rds thru it. I bought 2 more magazines for it. I did also get a Sig P938 for EDC in hot months. I’ve only put about 250 rds thru it but I can hit a 6” plate at 50 yards so I feel pretty happy with the purchase. Both pistols are money well spent.

  14. You do NOT have to pull the trigger to disassemble the gun, fyi. There is a lever the can be depressed to remove the slide from the frame.

  15. I think this pistol is worth taking a look at.
    I am also one of those that just doesn’t like the feel and grip angle of the Glocks, always feels like I’m shooting uphill.
    Also a little tired of seeing EVERY compact carry pistol compared to a Glock, while I’m sure Glock makes a good reliable firearm can’t pistols be judged on their own merit.
    And finally, I am so sick and tired of hearing and seeing people, supposed “gun people”, whine, cry and argue about pulling the damn trigger to take it down as if it is the worst thing in the world. The FIRST thing you do when you are going to clean your gun is make sure it is UNLOADED.
    Give it a rest people, pulling the trigger to take the slide off is not a problem of any sort.

  16. The M&P M2.0 Compact is an excellent pistol. I have been waiting for Smith to produce a good Glock 19 size pistol, and this is it. Accurate out of the box, feels good in the hand, the sights look and work well, and it loads and shoots perfectly. The trigger is as good as it gets. And it fits in my concealed carry vest. This is the largest pistol that will fit in my vests. I prefer the model with a thumb safety. That trigger is a little light in my opinion to carry without the thumb safety.
    SW M&P’s are the best pistols I own and I have many, Sigs, other Smiths, Glocks, Springfield Armory, Ruger. Most of those are alright pistols the exception being the Glocks. I can’t get along with Glocks, they force my trigger finger down into the trigger guard and it pinches my finger. Never again a Glock.

  17. I love my new S&W M&P C 2.0 9mm. I could not have bought any other 9mm in the store and picked one better than the S&W. Great ergonomics and shoots a nice shot group. I tried the CZ P10C and gen 4 G19, but I prefered the S&W. I am very happy with it. I added a 17 rd mag and it worked as advertised with the sleeve. It basically does the same thing as the new Glock 19X without the weird ergonomics. I also prefer the new hinge type safety trigger to the P10C or the G19 (any gen) triggers. I understand everyone has their favorites, but the S&W M&P C 2.0 and CZ P09 are mine. I hope you are as happy with your choice as I am with mine.

  18. I have a G19 heavily modded since I’ve grown to really enjoy shooting (sights, trigger, grip reduction/undercut, etc). The 19 does have a great size to weight design and has been greatly reliable. However, I have grown to despise its’ lack of ergonomics. I have held the 2.0 at the local shop and it does feel right – something i haven’t been able to accomplish with my G19 even with all of the grip mods I’ve done to it.

    I’ll rent one out soon. If it shoots well i’ll pick one up and put it through its paces for reliability purposes. Like i said, I’ve grown to despise my 19 but maybe its a “grass is greener on the other side” allusion. I’ll find out soon.

  19. I have owned or tried the majority of polymer pistols made. They either had functional issues, were not as accurate as I wanted, had horrible triggers or didn’t fit my hand. I do have an XD mod 2 that does a very good job for me but for some reason I was still not entirely satisfied. I wouldn’t give S&W a try because I have never had a good experience with them in the past and their politics a few years ago really got under my skin. But, because I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for elsewhere, I tried the M&P 2.0 compact. To my surprise It checks all the boxes for me and I really couldn’t be more happy with it.

    I can get into the details with all the other plastic guns I have owned or tried if necessary but this gun has everything I am looking for other than a 1911 trigger feel. Striker fired weapons have their issues too.

  20. A good review.
    My only point of contention is the author’s making a major issue of the M&P’s lack of a flared mag well. Just not necessary. In fact, it looks a bit silly on the Glock Gen5 and detracts from its grip’s concealability. A tempest in a tea pot.

  21. I own a Walther PPS M2 for IWB carry and a Ruger LCP II for pocket carry. Both are excellent for their intended carry, reliable, accurate and comfortable. The only additional thing I would like would be a greater round capacity, but hopefully I will never be faced with a need for that (and changing magazines is quick and easy). There are many quality guns on the market today, but what I have will serve me well.

  22. I arranged a purchase consultation at a high end range since I needed a service weapon for a new security job. My last firearms had to be, well, relinquished years ago. I got pushed into choosing a higher priced gun as I told the shop ahead of time I just needed something inexpensive for standard security work. Salesman was ex law enforcement, punked the M&P that I chose because of good results with my past SW9VE, and kept on about a K&N he had and slept with probably more than his wife. He suggested a Glock (as an alternative to his choice) for security work, but I insisted on trying the M&P 2.0 compact along with his recommendation. Maybe I’m a novice and maybe I and was one of the few criminals that were too smart to get into situations leading to shoot outs, but I chose the M&P compact without question for the size, grip, and minimal recoil. It still packs a punch and gives a legitimate uniformed side arm presence without the optics, extend mags, and tan polymer color that hunter/l.e./survivalists need as their daily accessory. (Yes I did just move to AZ. The shop staff was shocked that someone could have a checkered enough past to not walk out the door with a gun directly after purchase but end up still passing a D.O.J.) I couldn’t bother with looking into a cheaper gun since I had a girl with me on our first date and couldn’t look cheap, but I’m glad I invested a couple hundred more on something that appears to be indestructible and worthy of competing against Springfield’s, HK’s, etc. if it needs to do its job.
