Performance Center Competition Ready M&P M2.0 Pistols – First Look


The Performance Center takes the popular M&P M2.0 pistol platform to a new competition ready level. Chambered in 9mm and 40 S&W, the new Performance Center M&P M2.0 pistols are available with either a 4.25” or 5” barrel in a variety of configurations.  The Performance Center M&P M2.0 pistols include features such as ported barrels and slides, fiber optic sights, and slides designed for use with reflex pistol optics.

Tony Miele, Sr. Director, New Products and Performance Center, said, “Performance Center M&P M2.0 pistols were designed with the competitive shooter in mind and are packed with features for the competitive shooter.  For those looking to mount an optic on their pistol without custom work, the new C.O.R.E. pistols have slides cut for optics straight from the factory and will support the majority of popular pistol reflex sights on the market.”

In addition to the features listed above, the Performance Center M&P M2.0 pistols will ship with two full-size magazines, C.O.R.E. models will include mounting plates for the most popular reflex sights, and all models include a Performance Center-branded Tipton Compact Pistol Cleaning Kit.
