S&W M&P 9 History
As the release fell around the same time as Glock’s new Gen release, the popularity of the M&P 9 didn’t take off.
The main features of the M&P 9 were the interchangeable backstraps that allowed shooters to choose the fit and feel of the frame.
In 2015 the latest generation of the M&P 9 was released aptly named the 2.0.
Now in May of 2022, the 3D printed M&P 9 frame was released in a number of variants with a large number of compatibility options.
