Smith & Wesson's eagerly awaited and hard-to-find Shield is the slimmest, smallest, subcompact .40 S&W version of its premier Military & Police pistol line, the wildly popular polymer frame design that has virtually replaced all other semi-auto pistols in S&W's catalog. The .40 S&W cartridge was developed for law enforcement to deliver much better stopping power than the 9mm Luger, yet be much more controllable than the .45 ACP. This effective blend of power and control has made the round increasingly popular with law enforcement agencies, self defense professionals, and dedicated hand gunners. When paired with the high-performance S&W M&P line, this caliber makes an unbeatable combination that all comes together in the diminutive Shield. Designed from the ground up as a hard hitting subcompact carry pistol in a serious defense caliber, this gun is nevertheless pure M&P, known for rugged, rock solid reliability, easy maintenance (there are very, very few moving parts), and a trigger/safety system which that operates as easily as a revolver. Added to this, the Shield's slim sub-1” wide profile and lightweight design mean that this pistol can be comfortably carried all day. Don't miss this great deal if you are looking for a top-of-the-line subcompact semi-auto! It won't last long!
Although Smith & Wesson's M&P Shield .40 is basically a modern striker fired, recoil operated, semi auto, this pistol feels to the user much like a revolver with a short, crisp (spec'd at 6.5 lbs), short-reset DAO (double action only) pull that is consistent from the first to the last shot. What this arrangement means is that the trigger works the same way, first time, every time, an outstanding combat feature. The subcompact, less than 1”-wide frame is zytel polymer with undercut trigger guard to enable a stable, high hold. A small tactical rail is molded into the dust cover. The frame is topped with a stainless steel slide, coated with a highly resistant matte black Melonite® finish. Besides the trigger, the only other controls on the pistol are unobtrusive take down, and mag release, slide catch and manual safety levers all on the left side to keep the maintain the thin profile. The grips have an aggressive, non-slip texture on the front- and back straps, and the grip angle is set at the optimal 18 degrees deemed by many professionals to provide the best natural point of aim. The fixed 3-dot combat sight system consists of a rear low-mount carry unit, dovetailed into the slide, and a steel blade front, also dovetailed into the slide. This gun comes with 2 drop-free S&W magazines, one 7-rd unit with an extended, finger-rest floor plate for better control on the range, and one 6-rd unit with a flat floor plate for more concealable carry.
