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 (and 13 rounds in the pinky extension mag). 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 upgraded tritium night sights, and does NOT have a manual thumb safety.
