Smith and Wesson M&P for Sale - Buy Smith and Wesson M&P Online
Smith & Wesson M&P (military and police) is a polymer-framed, short recoil operated, locked breech semi-automatic pistol introduced by Smith and Wesson in 2005. It uses a Browning-like locking system and is widely used in both law enforcement and commercial markets.
The Smith & Wesson M&P is a direct evolution of the Smith & Wesson Sigma design with an improved trigger, and enhanced ergonomics that allow for a customized pistol. As a striker-fired semi-automatic pistol, the trigger system prevents the firearm from discharging unless the trigger is completely depressed, even if the weapon is dropped. The pistol frame is made out of Zytel and is reinforced with a stainless steel chassis. The slide and barrel are made out of stainless steel that is hardened through a nitrating process called Melonite. The slide has four contact points with the frame so the system is self-cleaning by leaving room for any dirt of small objects to fall out of the weapon.
Ergonomics were a major focus in the development of the M&P. Three palm swell grips are available, the trigger guard is designed to accommodate gloves, and the frame of the M&P has a slide release lever on each side. The magazine also drops free when the magazine release is pressed and the firearm features an ambidextrous slide stop and reversible magazine release button.
