M&P® M2.0™ Compact Pistol Series Now Available with 3.6″ Barrel

M&P M2.0 Compact series expanded to include shorter, 3.6″ barrel version in 9mm and .40 S&W

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., (April 30, 2018) – Smith & Wesson Corp. today announced that it has added a short- barreled version of it’s popular M&P M2.0 Compact pistol series. The newest in a series of additions to the M2.0 platform, the M&P M2.0 Compact 3.6″ pistols feature a 3.6″ barrel, the enhanced M2.0 feature set, and the highly desired magazine capacities of the M&P M2.0 Compact 4″ pistols.

Jan Mladek, General Manager of Smith & Wesson and M&P brands, said, “When we launched the M&P M2.0 Compact pistol series with a 4″ barrel last September, we knew it was just the first step in expanding the popular Compact pistol size offering. During the development process, there was considerable interest in a shorter, 3.6″ barrel concept, and with this introduction, we’re now able to offer our consumers a lighter, shorter compact pistol for concealed carry. While the barrel length is shorter, the M&P M2.0 Compact 3.6″ pistol maintains the 15 round, 9mm magazine capacity of the Compact series – an important requirement for many of our customers.”

Available with or without an ambidextrous thumb safety, the M&P M2.0 Compact pistol series includes the advanced M2.0 feature set, delivering an aggressively-textured grip, four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts, and a light, crisp M2.0 trigger with a tactile and audible reset. The M&P M2.0 Compact 3.6″ pistol comes standard with a white-dot front sight and a white two-dot rear sight, and either a 15 round 9mm or 13 round .40 S&W magazine, and an accessory rail. The pistol ships with two magazines, including two magazine extender sleeves for use with full-size magazines, as well as a limited warranty and lifetime service policy.
