Optics-Ready Versions: Smith & Wesson M&P Shield Plus Pistol Series Expanded

Smith & Wesson has expanded their M&P Shield Plus pistol line to include a 3.1-inch optics-ready slide option.

Smith & Wesson announced an expansion to the line of M&P Shield Plus pistols to include a new optics-ready variant, the M&P9 Shield Plus 3.1-inch OR. Building on the popular M&P Shield Plus series, this new model features a 3.1-inch slide cut for optics, and front and rear night sights.

Vince Perreault, Senior Brand Manager, said, “The use of optics on concealed carry handguns has become increasingly popular as owners look for ways to enhance their accuracy and shooting experience. Responding to consumer feedback, we’re now proud to offer a highly sought-after combination – our M&P9 Shield Plus pistol complete with a 3.1-inch slide cut of optics as well as night sights. These popular aftermarket modifications are now available in the M&P Shield Plus, straight from the factory.”

The new M&P9 Shield Plus 3.1-inch OR features a variety of enhancements including a flat-face trigger, an optimized grip texture designed for concealed carry, and two-magazines: an extended 13+1 round magazine and a flush fit 10+1 round magazine. It features the hallmark 18-degree grip angle of the M&P pistol series for a natural point of aim, helping to better manage recoil, and get back on target quickly. 

The MSRP on the M&P9 Shield Plus 3.1-inch OR pistols is $595.00.
