LEAKING: More S&W Shield 2.0 Details – Now With Laser Beams

This article was originally posted on Thefirearmblog.com

Supposedly debuting mid next week, additional details about the Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0 is leaking from every social media crack and crevasse. Prices are set (estimated) at just under $500 MSRP with night sights adding another $100. New features include a rough textured finish and a lighter, crisper trigger pull with a better reset. Like the previous version, the 2.0 will be offered with and without a manual safety and in both the best pistol caliber in the world as well as the worst (that means 9mm and 40 S&W).

Also leaking is a new dedicated/integrated Crimson Trace laser that appears to blend smoothly into the new frame. Estimated cost to add the red laser is about $100. Personally I would have liked to have seen a white LED light added into the device. However, the possibility remains that we haven’t seen all of the models and options that will be available.

Leaking

(Estimated/preliminary): M&P SHIELD M2.0 pistols are available in 9mm or 40S&W, with or without manual thumb safety, include 2 magazines, and white dot sights. M&P SHIELD, sku 11810 and 11816, feature Tritium night sights and 3 magazines.

If I were to make an educated guess (no laughing), I’d say we will see the Shield 2.0 hit the shelves at about $50-$75 less than MSRP. After the initial rush, $100 under MSRP should be an achievable price goal.

So, who’s buying one next week?
