The M&P SHIELD features a high-strength polymer frame with a black, Melonite® coated stainless steel slide and barrel. Models are standard with a 3.1-inch barrel, which contributes to an overall length of 6.1 inches and an unloaded weight of 19 ounces. For fast tracking and smooth target acquisition, the M&P SHIELD is standard with a 5.3-inch sight radius and has been enhanced with a short, consistent trigger pull measuring 6.5 pounds.
Very hard to get and for good reasons. This is a great and reliable concealed carry gun. And is backed by Smith and Wessons lifetime service policy.
