Manufacturer’s Description

Smith & Wesson‘s (S&W) M&P40 M2.0 is a striker-fired semiauto pistol built on a polymer frame with a stainless steel slide, and chambered in .40 SW. It’s the next-generation version of S&W’s M&P40 pistols (here’s a link to our v1 in-depth review). You can get it with or without an ambidextrous thumb safety, and with either a 4.25″ stainless steel barrel or a 5″ stainless steel barrel.

Other features include:

  • An 18-degree grip angle for natural point of aim;
  • four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts for optimal hand fit and trigger reach (small medium, medium-large, large);
  • aggressive grip texturing for enhanced control;

  • a newly designed crisp trigger with a lighter trigger pull than the previous version, and tactile and audible trigger reset;
  • an extended, rigid, embedded stainless steel chassis to reduce flex and torque when firing;
  • front and rear cocking serrations on the slide;
  • a picatinny style rail;
  • a reversible steel magazine release;
  • a magazine safety;
  • an internal lock;
  • a captured recoil guide rod & spring for easier assembly/disassembly;
  • a simple take-down lever for easy disassembly and maintenance, and a sear-deactivation lever so you don’t have to pull the trigger when disassembling the gun;
  • a steel, post, white-dot front sight dovetailed into the slide;
  • a steel, notch, two-white-dot rear sight dovetailed into the slide; and
  • and two magazines.

You can buy the M&P40 M2.0 with either a matte black frame or a flat dark earth (FDE) frame. And you can buy it with either a black, nitride-hardened Armornite finish on the slide, or an FDE cerakote-covered Armornite finish on the slide.

The M&P40 M2.0 is reportedly backward-compatible with earlier M&P40 magazines, holsters and accessories. It comes with a limited lifetime warranty and a lifetime service policy.
