The new 10mm comes with enhanced features, including an optics cut slide with the C.O.R.E. system. It enables users to mount a variety of popular optics. The pistol also delivers a 15+1 overall capacity, shipping with two magazines. A new flat face trigger helps optimize trigger finger placement for more consistent and accurate shooting, according to S&W.
“Having not made a 10mm semi-automatic hand gun since the 1990’s, it’s a pleasure to re-enter that space with the M&P10mm M2.0 pistol,” said Joh Myles, Senior New Product Manager, Smith & Wesson. “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.”
The new 10mm M&Ps come purpose-built, with the user in mind, according to S&W. They include M2.0 features and come with or without an ambidextrous thumb safety. Smith & Wesson will offer a shorter 4-inch configuration, allowing for quicker clearance of the holster. Meanwhile, a slightly longer 4.6-inch 10mm M2.0 delivers an 18-degree grip angle. It comes with four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts and enhanced grip texture for recoil management.
