Smith & Wesson M&P 9EZ Shield

Smith & Wesson M&P 9EZ

Building on the success of the M&P 380EZ, Smith & Wesson is introduced the new M&P9 EZ today.

The new gun blends the easy-racking slide of the original pistol with the more powerful 9mm cartridge. This means that people with reduced hand strength are no longer handicapped by the comparatively low powered .380 ACP.

Features of the new M&P 9EZ include:

  • a slide that is easy to manipulate
  • a slide with tapered rear slide serrations
  • magazines with a loading tab for easier insertion of rounds
  • reversible magazine release
  • a one-piece trigger design

In the above video, Julie Golob gives you an introduction to the pistol.

Easy to Load Smith Wesson MP 9EZ

Smith & Wesson is also offering a version of the gun with a Crimson Trace Laserguard that uses a red aiming laser. Lasers can be very useful for people when a traditional sight picture is unavailable. For example, if you are knocked to the ground or are using cover that precludes the alignment of gun and eye.

At this time, Smith & Wesson lists all versions of the M&P 9EZ at the same price: $479. It would seem that there is no additional charge for getting the pistol with the Crimson Trace Laserguard.

I found Palmetto State Armory is currently offering the 9mm EZ pistols for $399 here.

Wow – the price is the same on both th LG and non-LG version? That’s a deal. Normally, I’d expect to pay another $75 for the laser. Thanks Smith!!

I was going to buy one of the 380EZs on Black Friday, but I held off for some reason. Glad I did. Although you can’t beat the price of the .380 guns, I really wanted 9mm. Glad to see S&W deliver!

Yeah they sell gun and laser but no holster none…
Perfect rig for Handicapped and Women. Oh did I say no holster none.
Perfect rig for Handicapped. Oh did I say no holster none. LMAO!

I look almost every day for a holster that will work with a laser-fitted 9EZ. I checked every site and every gun shop I could find, but no holster. My local gun shop dealer suggested having one custom made, which they can do with Kydex. I live in a rural area and there’s no such artist locally to have that done.
Oh, and after 6 months I FINALLY found extra mags! My gun shop had two and I bought them both.
That being said, I love my 9EZ.
