The Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0 series of pistols have been a primary workhorse for the company. Over the years, the lineup and diversity of the M&P 2.0 has grown substantially. The Performance Center lineup from Smith & Wesson amplifies the M&P 2.0 to the next level. Smith & Wesson is proud to introduce the M&P 2.0 Performance Center Pistol chambered in 10mm.

The M&P 10mm 2.0 will feature a ported barrel with a 1:10 RH Twist. The new 10mm pistol from S&W will have an optic-ready slide, a flat face trigger, and adjustable back straps for optimal hand comfort and fit.

Below are the press release, product details, and features for the M&P 10mm 2.0.

Press Release

Smith & Wesson Brands, Inc. (NASDAQ Global Select: SWBI), a leader in firearm manufacturing and design, today unveiled the new Performance Center® M&P®10mm M2.0™ pistol.

Building off the success of the M&P10mm M2.0, Smith & Wesson listened, went to work, and focused on features designed to increase performance in order to take this series to the next level. Chambered in 10mm Auto, this new full-size polymer handgun is built with enhanced features that include a ported 5.6-inch barrel to reduce muzzle rise, optic-height tritium night sights for a clear sight picture in low-light conditions, and a Performance Center® tuned flat M2.0 trigger with a crisp break and audible reset.

“The new Performance Center 10mm was conceived with both the hunter and target shooter in mind. The goal was to build upon the M2.0 10mm series, with the intention of having reduced felt recoil and quicker follow-up shots. Popular features previously seen on other 5.6-inch PC pistols are present in this design and, when paired with the flat-shooting 10mm Auto cartridge, provide the end user a total package for hunting, self-defense, or at the range,” said John Myles, Senior Manager of New Products.

The new Performance Center 10mm slide is cut for optics and ships with Smith & Wesson’s C.O.R.E.™ plate system, two 15-round magazines, and four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts. This pistol is proudly made in the U.S.A. and has an MSRP of $749.00.
