Smith & Wesson just announced four new fully featured pistols chambered for 10mm Auto for their acclaimed Military & Police 2.0 series of polymer-framed, striker-fired handguns. They include both carry and full-sizemodels with 4- or 4.6-inch barrels and a 15+1-round capacity.
All of the new pistols are optics-ready, with slides cut for mini red dot sights, and suppressor-height white dot sights. One new feature is a redesigned semi-flat-faced trigger and an extended, skeletonized passive trigger safety.
“Having not made a 10mm semi-automatic handgun since the 1990s, it’s a pleasure to re-enter that space with the M&P 10mm M2.0 pistol,” said Smith & Wesson’s New Product Manager John Myles. “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,” he said.
The four models include two of each size, with and without optional manual thumb safeties. Like previous models, the safety levers, along with the slide release levers are ambidextrous and the magazine release button is reversible.
As part of the M&P 2.0 series, these all have the updated grip texture, improved trigger internals for a lighter trigger pull and crisp reset, and four interchangeable grip shells to fit a wide range of shooters’ hand sizes.
For now, all of the new 10mm pistols are offered in black, with black grips and a matte-black Armornite nitride finish on the stainless steel slide and barrel. Each pistol ships with two 15-round magazines.
The 4-inch models weigh a little over 28 ounces unloaded and the 4.6-inch pistols weigh about an ounce more. They’re 1.3 inches wide at the controls, and 5.6 inches tall. The 4-inch models are just under 8 inches long, while the 4.6-inch models come in right at 8.5 inches in overall length.
All are priced very competitively at $664 for the 4-inch patterns and $665 for the 4.6-inch versions. Some companies charge a bit extra for 10mm variants, but these are priced right in line with other M&P 2.0 pistols.
It’ll be interesting to see where Smith & Wesson goes with 10mm down the line but for now, these will certainly make a lot of people happy. For more information head over to Smith & Wesson today.
