Featuring Truglo TFX night sights and an FDE finish, Smith & Wesson’s newest .45ACP M2.0 pistol has a lot to offer right out of the box.
Announced Monday, the newest variant of the M&P45 joins the company’s previous 9mm and .40-caliber offerings in the FDE stable of second generation Military & Police series semi-auto handguns. Besides the obvious finish characteristics, the factory-standard Truglos offer encapsulated tritium and fiber optics for use in either day or nighttime conditions.
The striker-fired 10+1 capacity handgun is 7.9-inches long with a 4.6-inch barrel. Weight is 29.9-ounces. The stainless barrel and slide are Cerekoted with an Armornite finish. Standard M2.0 series features carried over to the pistol include an updated trigger with a tactile reset, low bore axis, molded polymer frame, a quartet of interchangeable palm swell grips, and an 18-degree grip angle.
Retail is $699 and the gun — Smith & Wesson’s only M2.0 pistol in a FDE finish that is chambered in .45 — ships with two magazines.
