S&W continues to listen to the market by rolling out a tuned Performance Center M&P9 Shield EZ, the model the company built for shooters who prefer easier-to-rack handguns. MSRP $588.
The new Performance Center M&P9 Shield EZ is chambered in 9mm and features a variety of Performance Center upgrades.
Tony Miele, Sr. Director, New Products and Performance Center, said, “The Performance Center has the ability to design and manufacture specialty upgrades normally found in aftermarket work, straight from the factory. With the popularity of the M&P9 Shield EZ, we set out to develop Performance Center versions with porting, a tuned action, aftermarket sights, and more.”
The new Performance Center M&P9 Shield EZ pistols feature an 8+1 round capacity and a 3.8-inch barrel. The Performance Center M&P9 Shield EZ pistol ships with two 8-round magazines that feature a load assist tab for quick, easy loading, as well as a Picatinny-style equipment rail to accommodate accessories. The pistol also features an M&P pistol 18-degree grip angle for a natural point of aim, HI-VIZ Litewave H3 sights, and a light, crisp trigger.
