S&W finally released M2.0 C.O.R.E. pistols in 5 and 4.25 inch ported and imported variants in both 9mm and .40.

Firearm Gun Trigger Gun barrel Gun accessory


I've been waiting for an optics ready M2.0 for over a year. I finally gave up last week and ordered a Sig P320 X5 legion. Today was the pickup.

I would have much preferred the M2.0's low bore axis and tall co-witness sights. Not to mention comparability with my existing holster and magazines.

Not sure I could buy another m&p after the first version had some many short comings do to third rate triggers and spotty accuracy in 9mm . Plus the p320 X series trigger is very good in the 4lbs range as it comes from sig along with very good accuracy .

Still hard to find any accuracy claims or comparisons of the m&p 4.25 or 5" 2.0 models .

I use the 5" M2.0 (with Apex trigger) for IDPA, USPSA , Multigun and Steel challenge. It is by far my favorite and the low bore axis has it all over the Sig for a soft and flat shooting gun without adding ballast.

My M2.0 is at around 22K rounds and it still looks new inside and out. I'm shocked how well the FDE finish is holding up after thousands of draws from Kydex holster.

I haven't shot test groups for quite a while and I don't really remember the group size. My prematch sanity check is a 50 yard 18X24 plate, which it hits 10 for 10 with my 147 gr reloads.

I will admit uspsa type shooting matchs does not require accurate handguns , 3" even 4" groups most times will get the job done but that 9mm core of my wifes was more like a buck shot pattern than a well fired group but then that's how some of there barrels and lock up was with many of those . That's ok apex trigger group and gs fit barrel fixed that ! hers was so out of spec the gunsmith fit barrel was darn near a drop in fit .

My daughter wanted a 40sw as a house gun and liked mom's trigger so I put a apex fss kit in it too as it also has a thumb safety . 5 years later she wanted to trade for a in between sized 9mm that she could also carry so I got her m&p 4.25 40sw in a trade . Not expecting great accuracy the first 15 rounds fired from it for me was my normal 155gr practice ammo stayed well controlled in a 3.5-4.5" group at 15 yards fired standing with a average split time of .780 . Not bad for a first time fired new to me handgun .
