The Smith & Wesson M&P 9 Shield Plus is a lightweight and concealable striker-fired pistol that takes the popular features of the older model and ups the capacity to 10+1 or 13+1 in relatively the same size. The Shield Plus is only slightly thicker to accommodate the double stack magazines which are made by Mec-Gar in Italy. This new micro compact pistol design allows for easy and comfortable concealability while increasing firepower making this the perfect carry option for your next gun. Other notable improvements of the M&P Shield Plus include a Cerakoted frame to match the Armornite coated slide while they have retained the same popular grip tape style texturing for a positive grip in any condition. The trigger has also been improved to a hybrid flat/curved design that allows for easier engagement of the passive trigger safety and a lighter feeling pull with a crisp break and audible reset. The combination of the trigger safety, internal firing pin block safety, and thumb safety make this a gun you can confidently carry all day. Additionally, it still retains all the same internal mechanisms as the older models such as their takedown mechanism that allows you to disassembly the pistol without pulling the trigger. If you love your S&W Shield but want more capacity or are new to concealed carry, you can't go wrong with the M&P9 Shield Plus Micro Compact Pistol.Features:

An industry leader since 1852, Smith & Wesson is one of the world's largest firearms manufacturers. With the release of the Volcanic pistol, the first American firearm capable of firing a fully self-contained cartridge, S&W cemented their name in history as an innovative firearms manufacturer. 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.
