Smith & Wesson® M&P® Shield Plus 9mm Semi-automatic Pistol
The original Shield was one of our best-selling carry pistols…and quite frankly one of the finest subcompact guns in its class. Now, it’s back with more capacity, enhanced grip, and a better trigger that combine to make it the king of 10+1 CCW handguns.
While the original Shield held 7 rounds in the flush-fitting magazine, Smith & Wesson redesigned the Shield Plus magazine follower while slimming down the internal grip frame to accommodate a 10-rd. flush-fitting magazine. So you get extra firepower in a Pistol that’s just about identical to its predecessors.
The grip itself features a few tweaks to the texturing that make it more comfortable and controllable. The new enhanced texture allows you to manage recoil and keep a firm grip, and delivers comfort when concealing.
The real prize, though, is the all-new trigger—which is one of the finest we’ve experienced on a subcompact pistol. It’s exceptionally crisp and creep-free, with minimal overtravel and a new safety blade that’s more comfortable. And, like the original Shield, the trigger features a quick reset that you can hear AND feel. All these new features—combined with the near-bulletproof durability and superior reliability of the original—make the new Shield Plus the pinnacle of the concealed carry pistol.
This model features the heavier 10-lb. trigger for shooters who want the added protection against inadvertent trigger pulls.
