Smith & Wesson Performance Center fans, rejoice: Today marks the release of the Performance Center M&P9 Carry Comp Series pistols. These new semi-automatic, 9mm handguns are great for home defense or training, but where they really shine is as concealed-carry guns (hey, it's right there in the name!). Built across full-size, compact and micro-compact frames, Carry Comp Series pistols come in a variety of capacities.

The Shield Plus 4" barrel model ships with 10-round, 13-round and 15-round magazines that allow the user to choose their preferred combination of size and capacity, making it a versatile personal defense carry option. The M&P 2.0 4.22" barrel models are offered in metal and polymer frame configurations, come in a 15-round or 17-round capacity, depending on your frame-size of choice, and are trusted platforms for any training or personal defense application.

The M&P9 Carry Comp Series was developed with key features to improve the overall shooting experience of the user. The strategically designed Power Port, located at the end of the barrel at the twelve o’clock position, diverts gas upwards, reducing felt recoil, which improves overall control.

If you choose to utilize a red dot, the optics-ready slide's ClearSight Cut is designed to divert gasses away from the optic, allowing the user to maintain an unobstructed view. If you prefer iron sights, these models also include a tritium front night sight and blacked-out serrated rear sight out of the box for an enhanced sight picture.

Boasting a new aesthetic, M&P9 Carry Comp slides were developed with aggressively angled front and rear serrations to increase reliability and improve manipulation against tougher elements. All new Carry Comp models include flat-face trigger designs, grey Armornite finished slides, and ship with a Performance Center Cleaning Kit. MSRP depends upon model chosen;
