Smith & Wesson M&P Series pistols now available with factory-installed green Crimson Trace Laserguard sights include the M&P 9mm (full-size and compact) as well as the M&P .40 S&W (full-size and compact) models. The latest additions round out the complete line of M&P products, all of which are now available with green Crimson Trace lasers. The full list also includes the previously released M&P9 and M&P40 Shield™ along with the M&P BODYGUARD® .380. The increased number of M&P models with factory-installed green Crimson Trace lasers represents Smith & Wesson’s continuing effort to provide shooters with the most effective and versatile personal protection handguns on the market.
Jan Mladek, General Manager of the M&P Brand for Smith & Wesson, said, “With the addition of Crimson Trace green Laserguard sights on the full-size and compact M&P models, we now offer consumers the opportunity to own four different handgun models all available with the green laser sight. Research has shown that the human eye can more easily distinguish a green laser sight in areas with high amounts of ambient light, making green ideal for daytime use. The addition of the green Laserguard increases the versatility of the M&P Series of personal protection pistols.”
On the new M&P full-size and compact pistols, the green Crimson Trace Laserguard sight is attached to the trigger guard and offers the Instinctive Activation™ button on the front of the pistol grip. Equipped with windage/elevation adjustment and a master on/off switch, the green laser sight delivers a two-hour runtime on a single 1/3N 3V lithium battery. The internal features and specifications of Crimson Trace green laser-equipped M&P pistols mirror those of their standard M&P Series counterparts.
