Smith & Wesson introducing 7 new pistols with a focus on red dot-ready handguns

Posted on: November 9th, 2012

Smith & Wesson is introducing seven new handguns in .22 Long Rifle, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP, and they’re all gonna be popular. The pistols include four M&Ps, two SW1911s and a new competition-ready Model 41.

The M&Ps will make the biggest waves, as they represent a serious change in the world of handguns. Called CORE—Competition Optics Ready Equipment—designed to accept popular red dot sights from the factory. While there are a small number of handguns that are out-of-the-box ready to accept optics, like the FNX-45 Tactical, they’re uncommon and often command a serious price premium.

By introducing not one but four new M&Ps that can, with adapters, accept Trijicon RMR, Leupold Delta Point, Jpoint, Doctor, C-More STS and Insight MRDS optics, Smith & Wesson is committing to idea of handgun optics in a way that no other commercial producer has ever. These guns also have redesigned iron sights to lower-third cowitness with red dot sights.
