Red-dot ready right out of the box via Smith & Wesson's C.O.R.E. system and boasting an extended suppressor-ready threaded barrel, the new S&W M&P9 M2.0 Compact Spec Series kit scratches a lot of itches. 

The third iteration of Smith's M&P Spec Series line debuted this week, complete with a 4.6-inch threaded barrel – making it optimal for those quiet moments – while the high sights co-witness over cans and through most micro red dots. Clad in what the company dubs a "Bull Shark Gray Cerakote," the new Spec Series M2.0 Compact includes a pair of 23-round extended mags and a flush-fit 15-rounder to allow better concealment. The included palm swell inserts, in S&W's standard black, coupled with surface controls, give it a two-tone look.

The M&P Spec Series kit includes an M&P knife that features a 4-inch Tanto-style blade, window breaker, and seat belt cutter. The folder has an overall length of 9 inches. Plus, you get a die-struck M&P Spec Series Challenge Coin. It all comes in a custom-fit case. Oh yes, there's also the two 23-round 9mm magazines and one flush-fit 15-round magazine as well.

The MSRP on the limited-edition Spec Series Pistol Kit is $799, which is almost double the amount of a standard M&P9 M2.0 Compact, but you don't get the threads, the shark, the coin, the optics cut (chicks dig optics cuts), the extendos, or the blade for that price.
