Smith & Wesson M2.0 5" 9mm FDE w/Thumb Safety

The triggers on these are much improved.

Hoping to get a chance to get out to my range and shoot it this weekend.




Thanks from boomerpusher and Frankbarn

This thing looks awesome. Is it as comfortable as it looks?

Actually I have the small grip insert installed and its very comfortable. I'm use to 1911's with thin grips and this has a very similar feel to it, even thought it is a double stack magazine.

Too bad the military testers didn't like that one-very nice looking weapon. Much better than a Crock.

I don't know why it failed the military trials but my 3 Shields, 2 in 9mm and 1 in .45acp have been reliable so far. Plus I like the grip angle and the safety though a lot of people don't.

The safety has a natural downward motion like a 1911 and it was a strong selling point for me. I'm just now warming up to plastic striker fired guns but I want that extra comfort of a manual safety like I'm used to.

My dad bought a shield in 9 the standard model. He brought over to my place and we shot 400 rounds through up it straight from the box, not one malfunction. Trigger was impressive for a pistol of its size and purpose. Nice sights for a small pistol as well. I would like to shoot one of the full size pistols like yours. Looking forward to a range report. Keep us posted!

Can we see pictures?

My imagination sucks.

Or, I guess my Internet is just weird. I see a symbol that should mean picture....

My Shield .40S&W had about 500 rounds down & all of a sudden the trigger got good and smooth. Nothing was broken or worn out, it just settled in I guess. Funny, cause I was considering a APEX or other trigger at the time, (maybe it heard me.) Anyway I'm NOT considering making any changes to it now (another 500+ rounds down range). I'm wondering if these 2.0 models with good triggers will get even better after a long break in, maybe 500+ rounds. Time will tell. Looking forward to range reports. Has Military Arms Channel run their mud test on a 2.0 yet?

They haven't run it on the M2.0 yet that I know of.
I doubt it will do much better, M&Ps have a lot of gaps to let stuff in. Would be nice if they did something about the hydro locking issue that presented itself in the original M&P test that MAC did.
