Performance Center Announces Optics-Equipped M&P Shield M2.0

Performance Center Announces Optics-Equipped M&P Shield M2.0

Performance Center announced it has expanded its line of M&P Shield M2.0 pistols, delivering nine new models that include a longer, 4 inch barrel and slides designed for red dot optics. For the first time ever, the Performance Center M&P Shield M2.0 is available with a slide cut for optics and ships with a red dot included, delivering a slim, red-dot ready concealed carry pistol.

Tony Miele, General Manager of the Performance Center, said, “With the growing popularity of slide-mounted optics, we wanted to design a slim, concealable, red-dot ready pistol for our consumers. In our minds, the Performance Center M&P Shield M2.0 felt like a natural fit for development. Featuring a combination of M2.0 and Performance Center enhancements, these new pistols are slim, lightweight, and now red-dot equipped for quick target acquisition and easy concealment.”

The new Performance Center M&P Shield M2.0 pistols feature HI-VIZ front and rear fiber optic sights, a Performance Center tuned action for a smooth, lightweight trigger pull, and a tactile and audible trigger reset. Available in 9mm, 40 S&W, and 45 AUTO, these new pistols are enhanced with the M2.0 feature set and are available in multiple configurations:

Performance Center M&P Shield M2.0 - 4” Barrel
  • Features a 4” barrel and slide, providing a longer sight radius for more accurate shots
  • MSRP: $532
  • Performance Center M&P Shield M2.0 – 4” Barrel, 4 MOA Red Dot Sight
  • Features a 4” barrel and optics-ready slide
  • Includes 4 MOA Red Dot Sight for quick target acquisition
  • MSRP: $826
  • Performance Center M&P Shield M2.0 – 4” Ported Barrel, 4 MOA Red Dot Sight
  • Features a ported 4” barrel and optics-ready slide, reducing muzzle flip and felt recoil
  • Includes 4 MOA Red Dot Sight for quick target acquisition
  • MSRP: $854
  • In addition to the features listed above, the Performance Center Ported M&P Shield M2.0 will ship with a Performance Center-branded Tipton Compact Pistol Cleaning Kit, which includes bore brushes, a cleaning rod and related accessories to clean the pistol after use. All Performance Center Ported M&P Shield M2.0 pistols ship with two magazines and include one standard, flush fit magazine and one extended finger groove magazine.

    Umarex Air Ruger 10/22 Rifle Review

    Umarex Air Ruger 10/22 Rifle Review

    In this segment of "Guns & Ammo TV," Gun Tech Editor Richard Nance and Pro-Shooter Jim Tarr head to the range to wring out the Umarex Air Ruger 10/22.

    Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

    The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”

    Guns & Ammo TV: Shooting 1,270 Yards with the 5.56 NATO

    Guns & Ammo Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand was on location in Idaho where he pushed the limits of the 5.56 NATO cartridge in this segment of “Long Range Tech” for Guns & Ammo TV. Pairing a SIG Sauer MCX Virtus rifle loaded with Hornady's 73-grain ELD-M ammunition, Beckstrand attempted to ring steel set at 1,270 yards, an incredible distance for any 5.56-chambered rifle and beyond the typical range for an AR-15.
