From Smith & Wesson . . .

Smith & Wesson Brands, Inc. (NASDAQ Global Select: SWBI), a leader in firearm manufacturing and design, today unveiled the latest expansion in its M&P M2.0 line of handguns. The new standard 10mm comes with enhanced features like an optics cut slide with the C.O.R.E.™ system that enables users to mount a variety of popular optics.

This handgun is designed to carry an impressive 15 + 1 capacity, ships with two magazines, and, reflecting the needs of the consumer, features Smith & Wesson’s brand new M2.0 flat face trigger design, which is designed to optimize trigger finger placement to allow for more consistent and accurate shooting.

John Myles, Smith & Wesson’s Senior New Product Manager, said . . .

“Having not made a 10mm semi-automatic hand gun since the 1990’s, it’s a pleasure to re-enter that space with the M&P10mm M2.0 pistol.  The 10mm caliber has its own following, and our customers have been asking us to bring one back.  We are excited to launch this product using the M&P45 M2.0 as a building block to support existing aftermarket accessories that are readily available, as well as adding new enhanced features like the optics ready slide and the new M2.0 flat face trigger.”  

These new handguns are purpose-built with the end consumer in mind. They include the M2.0 features and are available with or without an ambidextrous manual thumb safety. Smith & Wesson will offer a shorter 4” configuration of the handgun to allow for quicker clearance of a holster or a slightly longer 4.6” configuration to provide for a longer sight radius to optimize the accuracy of the barrel’s 1-in-10 twist rate.

The M&P10mm M2.0 comes with the familiar 18-degree grip angle, four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts, and enhanced grip texture to help manage recoil.

The MSRP on the M&P10mm pistol is $654.00 to $665.00.

  1. It has the flat trigger thats a feature on the Shield Plus. I wonder if it has the same grip texture as the Shield Plus as well?

    • My friend reloads! We both have Springfield XDm-10’s. 15 1 Capacity Point and shoot just like my 1911. Pricey but an awesome round!

    • Fortunately for me, I reload. The price of bullets won’t effect me much at all. However, the idea of poppin’ off full house 10mm rounds through a 4″ barrel has me in “pre-cringe” mode.

      That MSRP is pretty nice as well.

      I hope TTAG gets one in for evaluation.

  2. had these at the lgs this weekend, s&w sale days. discounts and free 250 rounds ammo. friend of mine bought his firsts: shield 9mm ez (i told him, he didn’t care- he liked the black/ gold contrast. maybe used to be lk) and an fn509. he is enormous so these seemed small in his paws, compacts left him no purchase.
    this looks to be the 10mm to get; 15rd! doesn’t check the right boxes for me (poly/ striker). price is right.
    they had a bruin for 2200… but the rami was gone.

  3. Still looking more to the Glock 40 for anything 10mm but glad more options are popping up. I wonder if it is built for the Underwood and full house loads or the more typical warm .40sw level loadings.

    • Glock in 10mm?

      With the Glock’s unsupported barrel with Underwood and full house loads?

      You will get a FML. You crazy man.

        • Has that been an issue for anything besides gen2 full sized .40 using some stupid level reloads? Never heard of any of the 10mm lines having an issue.

    • Since it doesn’t have a grip safety the thumb safety is awesome, especially since it’s ambidextrous. I want one even though I have the Springfield XDm 10mm which is also an awesome gunm.

      • I’ll wait for the 5.25″ threaded barrel and manual safety version, or maybe a widebody Performance Center longslide 10mm.

        • My Springfield is 5.25″ No threaded barrel though. What you’re looking for I would love to see also! Maybe double stack on the grips?

  4. Yep, I’m in for a 4.6 inch thumb safety model. I was going to buy a Springfield until they threw a legal hissy fit over a meme. Oh, well. Someone always fills the void (right, Kamala?)

    • I don’t let the politics of S&W and Springfield stop me from purchasing their items. My Springfield XDm 10mm is an excellent firearm.
      The way I look at it is there are men and women working at these plants trying to feed their families just like me. My XDm is a tack driver and I’m looking forward to the S&W.

    • Fortunately my buddy reloads 10mm! We have some hot loads. 1300fps 165g. Haven’t chronographed it yet so not positive about the speed.

  5. For 10mm, I prefer the trigger of my Cold Gold Cup Delta Elite, probably the added weight as well. With the added accuracy I probably wouldn’t need the extra rounds of the new S&W.

    • Good question.

      Glocks lack chamber support in their factory barrel.

      Although it appears Glocks are unique in not having this safety feature.
