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.

    Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

    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.”

    The Nighthawk Custom Agent 2 Commander is an abbreviated version of the Agent 2, built on a forged slide and frame. The crowned muzzle is cut flush with the bushing, which was given flats around the edges. Few curves were left untouched by flats; even the bottom of the triggerguard has corners leading to the high-grip undercut. The scale motif adds striking functionality.
