Bright and Visible, Day or Night
The cavalcade of S&W M&P 2.0 news continues, with S&W announcing new sights available as of October 25th. The new version uses TRUGLO’s excellent TFX (Tritium Fiber-Optic) sights. For those of our readers who don’t know, the TFX series of sights are an excellent, constantly bright combination of snag-free CNC-machined steel fiber optic sights with Tritium for low/no light use. This particular version of of the M&P 2.0 comes with a full-size grip and 4.25″ barrel in either 9mm or .40S&W. They are also done exclusively in a flat dark earth finish as well. Though the M&P 2.0 full size line does include a .45ACP version, a TFX-fitted .45 has not been announced as of yet. Product numbers are 11767 for the 9mm and 11768 for the .40. MSRP is reasonable at $699, which is $100 more than a plain full-size M&P 2.0. This is a real value for the upgrade, being that TFX sights on their own retail for around $170.
