Smith & Wesson’s M&P M2.0 Compact gets a green laser upgrade in the way of a pre-installed Crimson Trace Laserguard, the company announced Wednesday.

The latest M2.0 Compact model will sport a pre-installed Crimson Trace Green Laserguard with caliber offerings in 9mm and .40 S&W. Available with thumb safety or without, the latest M2.0 Compact model sticks with the tried and true features from the M2.0 series to include an aggressively textured grip, interchangeable palmswell grip inserts and a light yet crisp trigger pull.

“The M&P M2.0 Compact Series with Crimson Trace Green Laserguard combines two best-in-class products,” Jan Mladek, General Manager of Smith & Wesson and M&P brands, said in a press release. “The pre-installed Crimson Trace Green Laserguard was designed specifically to fit the M&P M2.0 pistol with a seamless fit and matching texture, providing our consumers with a superior personal protection solution at an excellent value.”

The Crimson Trace laser can be fine tuned with full adjustments for windage and elevation. In addition, the Green LaserGuard utilizes Crimson Trace’s Instinctive Activation features which activates the laser when the gun is held in a normal firing grip.

The M2.0 delivers a white-dot front sight matched to white-dot rear sights. The 9mm variant packs 15 rounds while the .40 is capable of 13 rounds. The pistol comes with two mags and is priced at $699.
