Mike Morton slaps his hand around the backstrap of Umarex’s latest blowback BB gun, The Smith & Wesson M&P 9 M2.0
Smith and Wesson’s powder-burning M&P 9 M2.0 has been designed to serve the police and military market and hence “M&P”; however, it also draws interest from non-military handgun enthusiasts and airgun shooters been added to the fully licensed CO2-powered blowback by Umarex.
The first M&P is from 2005, and the 2.0 series upon which the replica was based was introduced in 2017. one of the most significant changes was a rough texture grip, which is also present in CO2 versions. CO2 version.
The powder-burning M&P comes in various calibers, including 9x19mm Parabellum with the caliber’s specific designation in the gun’s name, which is why it has”9″, which is the “9” to indicate 9mm. Umarex replica.
Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 Subcompact Pistol Review
Standard sights for factory models are made of stainless steel with three dots. The Subcompact comes with similar dovetails to larger M&Ps, so all of the aftermarket sights options, including fiber optics and tritium, are compatible with this pistol also. The M&P comes with an 18-degree grip angle; that’s a simple way of saying it’s a lot closer to 1911 than, say, the Glock. It comes with four backstraps that can be interchanged.
In many striker-fired pistols, you’ll find a safety lever located on the trigger. For M&P, M&P the motivation is the safety lever pivoting, and it has inbuilt striker security. It is possible to purchase this Subcompact with a manual safety lever, as I mentioned. The lever is ambidextrous and is located on the frame’s rear end, and it’s similar to where you’ll find an emergency thumb-safety on 1911.
The brand new M2.0 Subcompact is available with or without thumb security. As opposed to first-generation M&Ps, M2.0 does not come with the beavertail.
The pistol has two 12-round magazines. One is a flush base pad, and the other is an expanded base pad. I can get my entire hand onto the gun with the base pad extended magazine, but you use the base pad to flush my pinky hangs. The flush place measures a half-inch shorter, making it slightly more concealable. I use the word “slightly” because typically, the pistol’s butt prints on clothing.
Before we dig into the intricacies of the pistol, let’s take a look at the improvements and changes between the first or second-generation M&Ps. Two of the most significant changes must address the trigger pull as well as the grip.
The two most commonly used types of modification that have been applied to first-generation M&P pistols were trigger jobs and expanding the texturing of the grip surface generally by the use of stippling.
This is the M&P M2.0 in the Range
I brought M&P’s M&P M2.0 Compact 9 to the range for a quick initial test with SIG Sauer’s 115 grain 365 Elite Ball ammo for practice. The ammo is designed to be used in micro-9mm guns; its 1,050 feet per second muzzle velocity reduces the force of pistols with deep concealment. With M&P’s M&P M2.0 Compact, it was a little similar to firing a hefty .380.
Slow fire shooting at 30ft, I could keep seven-shot groups within the 2-inch range. Despite the freezing winter weather and snowy snow, I even had the first group drop five rounds in one hole.
I think the tight grouping is due to various reasons. The first is that its ergonomics on the M&P M2.0 grasp frame is exceptionally excellent, and the frame’s stippling ensures a non-slip surface in all conditions.
S&W M&P 9mm M2.0 Compact 4 Inch Features
I requested the M&P 9mm M2.0 Optics Ready Compact 4 inch with optional ambidextrous hand safety devices to test the pistol. While these extra safety devices aren’t required to ensure safety, I’ve asked for them on all the M&P firearms I’ve tried. I’ve felt more at ease using the additional safety features as an extra safety measure ever since the birth of our son.
The primary benefit of M&P and SIG M17 thumb safeties is that, unlike 1911s, they can be stacked to charge or clear the pistol while the safety is activated. This provides another layer of protection against accidental discharge to the process. Furthermore, there’s an option to disconnect the magazine, which prevents the M&P from firing when an empty magazine. This feature lets you keep around inside the chamber while removing the magazine and keeping it apart for safety if required. To prepare the M&P to fire, just put the magazine in.
SW M&P 2.0 Compact vs. Shield Concealed Carry
If you look at concealed carry guns, there are two different types of firearms. For instance, the Smith and Wesson shield holds only seven rounds, and it’s a one-stack gun. It’s likely to be much less compact than M&P 2.0 smaller. If you look at the dimensions of the gun’s height, it’s about a half-inch shorter, and it’s also six pounds lighter.
The Smith and Wesson M&P 2.0 compact is an excellent gun to carry concealed if you’re looking to have a more significant firearm.
It’s a given that the Smith and Wesson Shield will be much more concealable. You can still hide it with the 2.0 Compact; it just depends on the size gun you’re seeking. I have a Glock 19 every day.
It’s the exact size that it is, the Smith and the Wesson M&P 2.0 small. And I’m not having any issues concealing it, so you’re using an excellent holster. It’s the Smith and Wesson M&P Shield that will be much easier to hide. Based on the type of weapon you’re looking for, it’s lots of firepowers and shoots ability when you choose Shields from Smith and Wesson Shield.
