At the 2015 SHOT Show, Smith & Wesson unveiled the first Performance Center editions of its popular M&P pistol line.
A few days ago, S&W announced the introduction of a new Performance Center M&P Shield personal defense pistol. The Shield has become popular as a carry pistol, especially among shooters with smaller hands.
The new version comes with all the standard features, plus some upgrades that will make the little striker-fired powerhouse even better to shoot.
First, as they did with other M&P PC models, Smith & Wesson has ported the barrel and slide on the PC Shield to reduce muzzle flip and increase ease of target re-acquisition for follow-up shots. It also has an enhanced trigger, with a 6.5-pound pull.
