Through the years they continued to bring new designs loved by civilians, police, and military, eventually leading to their highly popular, striker fired M&P pistols. The variety of firearms from concealed handguns to precision bolt action rifles combined with S&W’s unmatched reliability and history are the reason they stand out from the crowd.
Ratings & Reviews
well made and works well but wouldn't buy again
This gun is very light but mine has a 10 pound trigger pull and makes it hard to hit anything with it. Having such a short barrel and short grip exacerbates the problem but close in it will still do the job. It is very small and narrow and good for concealed carry as it will fit right in a side pants pocket. The fit and finish is excellent and the action is smooth. I don't like the enclosed hammer because it doesn't show where the hammer is at any given time as you try to squeeze off a round and the trigger pull is long and hard. Once I part way pulled the trigger and then hesitated and let go of the trigger. The next time I began to pull the trigger it immediately fired with the lightest touch scaring the heck out of me. Be careful with this thing! I learned a lesson I won't ever forget.
