“An ideal choice for those looking for a concealed carry firearm in a larger caliber, the new M&P45 Shield M2.0 pistol builds off of the proven M&P Shield M2.0 pistol series, providing confidence and reliable performance, day or night, in a slim, lightweight, and easy-to-carry profile,” Smith & Wesson said in a news release.

The .45 Auto Shield features the same attributes as the standard Shield including a low-profile style and 18-degree grip angle. Boasting a 3.3-inch barrel, the Shield M2.0 offers a crisp trigger paired with an aggressive texture on the pistol frame.

The red laser M&P45 Shield M2.0 model delivers a price tag of $499 while the green laser variant is priced at $549.
