Smith & Wesson is amping up its M&P Shield M2.0 series, launching a new M&P45 Shield M2.0 pistol that comes with an integrated Crimson Trace red or green laser.

Chambered in .45 ACP, the M&P45 Shield M2.0 with an integrated Crimson Trace laser has all the bells and whistles of the M&P Shield M2.0 pistol, including a slim profile and 18-degree grip angle for a natural point of aim. This particular model features two laser modes and ambidextrous laser activation.

The gun also features a 3.3-inch barrel; light, crisp trigger; and an aggressive grip texture. In addition, this pistol ships with two magazines: a seven-round extended grip mag; and one six-round flush mag. It’s also available with or without a thumb safety.

Hyped in the presser as being a solid choice for those looking for a concealed carry gun in a larger caliber, the M&P45 Shield M2.0 with an integrated Crimson Trace red laser has a MSRP of $499. The model with the green Crimson Trace laser is available at $549.

Smith & Wesson acquired Crimson Trace a couple of years ago in a deal worth an estimated $95 million.
