Smith & Wesson has just announced an upgrade to the popular M&P9 M2.0 line of carry and duty pistols. With raised sights and the C.O.R.E. mounting plates, the upgraded M&P9 M2.0 is micro red dot sight (MRDS) optic-ready. Over three years ago, we announced that the Houston Police Department had approved slide-mounted optics for duty use. Since then, dozens of local, state, and federal agencies have made policy adjustments to allow the sight upgrades. The update also includes S&W’s new flat trigger. Additional details can be found below.
