Performance Center® By Smith & Wesson® Introduces New M&P® Ported Pistols
Competition Pistols in 9mm and .40S&W Now Available with Ported Barrel and Adjustable Trigger Stop These new models, which expand the line of M&P Performance Center firearms, offer discerning shooters premium features including a factory ported barrel and slide as well as a user adjustable trigger stop.
Chambered in 9mm and .40 S&W and available in both a 4.25-and 5-inch barrel configuration, these M&P Performance Center Ported pistols have been skillfully engineered with the competition shooter in mind. Open class members and action pistol competitors will appreciate the pistol’s precision cut ports which aid in reducing muzzle flip and improve the ability to remain on target after firing. The new M&P pistols have been further enhanced with a user adjustable trigger stop, allowing owners to personalize their competition rigs.
Competition features include an integral mounting platform on top of the slide for the easy addition of accessory optics. Designed to work in conjunction with the Trijicon RMR®, C-More STS, Leupold® DeltaPoint™, Doctor, Insight® MRDS™ and JPoint™, the integral platform affords quick and custom sight installation that can be achieved without the assistance of a professional armorer.
For improved handling the M&P Performance Center Ported models feature a textured interchangeable back strap with aggressive stippling. Three patented palmswell grips are also supplied with each pistol, providing shooters the ability to tailor the grip size to their individual preference. Accuracy and precise shot placement during competition benefit from the addition of a Performance Center sear. The specialized sear allows for a crisp 4.5 pound trigger pull along with a fast, defined reset in between shots.
