Smith & Wesson was focusing on some performance center models and some new .308 AR pattern rifles:
This is a Scandium Commander that the S&W’s Performance Center has put its hands on. Each slide is mated to the frame, and the modifications shown here are performed. The best part is that the S&W rep priced this at around $1,500. Not bad at all.
M&P 9/40 Pro Series Core
We saw and shot these during Media Day at the Range back on Monday.
This Core designation means a model comes with 6 plates that allow optics to be mounted. It also differs from the normal model in that it has a different sear, trigger, and backstrap. Both the 9mm and .40 S&W are available with 4.25″ or 5″ barrels for around $750 MSRP (the S&W web site says $729 however). 9mm capacity is 17+1; .40 S&W carries 15+1.
Smith and Wesson has three new .308 Winchester M&P rifles. The “civilian” model comes in Realtree Camo, and has a Magpul MOE stock. Controls are ambidextrous. 10″ barrel, nitrite coating, optics ready. Lead time should be about 2-3 weeks. MSRP: $1,700.
The M&P version has 5R rifling, a contoured barrel with flash hider, adjustable stock. MSRP is a bit over $1,500.
The third new rifle has more Magpul goodies (grip, MOE handguard.) Available colors shown below. MSRP wasn’t available:
