Smith and Wesson has introduced two new long slide 9mm pistols in the M&P series: the M&P9 Pro and M&P9L.
The Smith & Wesson Performance Center has introduced its own custom version of the M&P pistol – the M&P9 Pro Series. Designed with the competitive shooter in mind, this full-size polymer pistol is chambered in 9mm and features a 5-inch barrel with an overall length of 8 ½ inches.
The competition-ready pistol is particularly well-suited for those shooters planning to participate in the various competitive shooting circuits. The M&P9 Pro Series pistol is standard with a dovetail fiber optic green front sight for faster sight acquisition along with a Novak-designed, reduced glare rear sight. The increased sight radius allows for a more precise sight alignment necessary in competitive shooting scenarios.
The M&P9 Pro Series pistol features a smooth Performance Center 4 to 5 pound trigger pull and is shipped with two 17 round magazines.
In addition to the M&P9 Pro Series, Smith & Wesson is also offering a version of the M&P pistol with a 5-inch barrel, the M&P9L. The M&P9L is chambered in 9mm and measures 8 ¼ inches in overall length. The 5-inch barrel offers increased accuracy and makes it a viable choice for competitive shooting.
The M&P9L pistol has a capacity of 17+1 and an empty weight of 25.2 ounces. The striker fired action (SFA) trigger system features a 6 ½-pound trigger pull and has been designed with an overtravel stop for enhanced performance. The M&P9L is standard with a steel dovetail mount front sight and a steel Lo-Mount carry rear sight.
