Smith & Wesson was a very popular location at the Industry Day at the Range this year as they unveiled their new M&P 2.0 pistols. The M&P 2.0 pistols have several enhanced features designed to improve the shooter’s ability to manipulate and shoot the pistols.
The M&P line has experienced a very good response since its return in 2005, but it has not been without some setbacks. The initial trigger had some creep issues from a long trigger pull leading up to a heightened break pressure. It was not long before S&W went back in and strengthened the trigger spring. In addition, the grip texture was not favored by many. Though the grip angle and overall feel received high praise, the texture left something wanting. The M&P 2.0 has fixed both complaints with an enhanced trigger, and aggressive but comfortable grip texture for outstanding control.
