Smith & Wessson M&P 10mm 2.0

In 2017, members of the Smith & Wesson forum wondered if there will be a 10mm version of the newly released M&P M2.0 handgun which is chambered in 9mm. They got finally got their answer four years after with the release of the M&P 10mm 2.0 pistol. What’s even better is that the company made sure it is also optics ready as new pistols are optics ready which is pretty much standard in 2021.

The Smith & Wessson M&P 10mm 2.0 will come in 4-inch and 4.6-inch barrel configurations and buyers have the option of getting the thumb safety variants. They are base on the frame of the M&P 45 M2.0 which basically means that accessories made for that pistol are compatible with the M&P 10mm 2.0. They also sport a new M2.0 flat face trigger.

Both versions have double-stack magazines with a capacity of 15 rounds and raised white dot iron sights that can be co-witnessed with the micro optics that can be mounted on these pistols.

As with being optics ready being standard, the versions also come with a Picatinny rail for mounting pistol accessories such as lasers or weaponlights.
