Looking for the 5” I assume? Haven’t seen one yet.

I was hoping it would come out of this years Shot show.  But it does not look like that happened.

They must’ve produced a ton of the tan ones and need to clear them out of the warehouse before black ones hit the distributors.

Per S&W LE reps at shot, the 2.0 core will be released in 60 days.  This is for 4.25” only. No time line on 5,” but they do expect it to follow.

I've never seen a non black 5" M&P, either v.1 or 2

It won’t be. It’s got “M&P” on the side and no APEX barrel installed.

Ouch. 

 

I like the 2.0s. Thought about getting an Apex barrel but don’t have a smith around here I trust to fot it. 

 

And CORES? Meh, I get my slides milled. I have a Glock 45 slide getting an RMR on it right now. Thought about doing a 2.0 as well.

Do it yourself with their SDI. It takes an evening with a sharpie, a high quality hand file, and some patience. But it makes a massive difference, and it’s actually very easy.

 

For USPSA purposes, go with a better optic with a larger window than the RMR. For defensive purposes the RMR is great though.

IMHO its had to beat the Delta Point Pro.    Its durable with a large clear window.  Even if you have a core which they tech do not fit with the nice recessed plates all it takes is 3 passes with a file on the front of the DPP just the very edge and it fits and with it sitting nice and low.  A pass with a alum black pen and you can not even tell.  Way better that the small green windowed RMR and sits much lower than using the dedicated plate or the dove tail mount.  Never going to understand peoples apprehension of doing this most basic of mods that has no effect on function or warranty and looks only when its not mounted.  Even unmounted you have to look closely to tell if you take your time with the filler marker.

 

Of course if its a M2.0 then I would just mill the slide for the DPP specifically.

I emailed S&W last week about a 5” 2.0 in Black (core and non core) and they said there were no current plans to release one and to check their website for new releases.

I purchased my 5" M&P9 2.0 almost two years ago when they first came out.  Mine is, of course, in FDE which I'm not nuts about.    I thought if I waited a little longer it would be available in black but I was impatient.  Good thing I didn't wait.

Theyre pulling a glock...basically release a g42 (cause 380 is dumb) before they release the g43. They knew damn well they woulsnt be able to sell any 42's if they release the 43 first.

Cerakote is your friend if it bothers you that bad. I painted one of my FDE pistols in Patriot Brown just to make it a little different. Most of my other pistols are black so the change is welcome. The picture does not show the difference very well but the brown is considerably darker in person. Im a bit perplexed as to why S&W chose to make all the 5" 2.0's in FDE. Its not because of the possible Mil contract from the M17 trials because they make a black 2.0 frame. They also make three different 2.0 5" slides. I just think somebody dropped the ball.

S&W has a black 2.0 pro series 5" on their website now.  It looks good, but will need a different  rear sight for sure.

Not seeing it..  P/N??

11820 is the PN.  If you go to browse pistols is right after the 4" shields.

I like the idea of a adjustable rear sight but the fiber optics on the rear would need to go.

I got this 2 weeks back. Shot it at a local IDPA match without any issues. I would like to replace the rear sight with 10-8 or something but the sight hight is proprietary. Looks like I will have to change front and back.
