I picked up my M&P compact 2.0 yesterday. I got the 4” model. I haven’t shot it yet but here are a few pics with my G19 and APX Centurion. The trigger is pretty good, the reset is much improved over my full size 1.0. At one time I owned three M&P’s but sold them all. They just weren’t there yet for me I guess. This is my first M&P in over ten years and I got to say the 2.0 is way better than the original.
I got the APX last December and it is a great pistol. My only gripe is that it is a chunky monkey compared to the Glock or the Smith. Probably has the best trigger of the bunch though.
Does anyone know what kind of night sights Smith uses? There is no tritium symbol, no date, and no name on them. The rear sight just has the M&P logo on it. The SKU of the pistol I got is 11675 and came with NS and three mags.
Sorry for the crappy pics. Right when I started to take them it got dark and began to pour out.
I don't know who makes sights for S&W. I have both the Glock and S&W, like them both. By the time I handled the Beretta, I was suffering from plastic fatigue. Pack up and kit out, I'm taking the G19.

Agreed, on both accounts. I put some Apex upgrades in my 1.0, including their sear and RAM, and the 2.0's factory trigger is still better. They got rid of the clunky/gravely trigger pull, and noticeably improved the reset.
Trijicon. Unlike most sights, the Trijicon markings are on the underside. You can see them if you remove the factory night sights.
Rouge in the clutch AGAIN! Thanks man. Never thought the markings might be on the bottom. I just knew I have never seen a tritium sight without them.
I cleaned and oiled her last night. A very nice gun and a great size. Through sheer familiarity I like the G19 but we'll see how the Smith does at the range. The more I dry fire and hold it the more I like it.
I thought the M&P had a better trigger than the APX...get the green striker spring assembly for the APX if you think the stock is good. Takes it to another level.
If in a fight, hit first and hit hard.
I second the green striker spring in the APX. Love what it did to my Centurion!

I never thought about getting a S&W 2.0 M&P until a couple weeks ago. There was a deal to good to miss and thought I would try it. I am glad I got it. The trigger is amazing, although I had to wet/dry sand a bit of the grip texture as it hurts to IWB carry. I am quite impressed with how nice it is.

My M&P 2.0's grip texture was a bit rough when I first got it, but after a few hundred rounds, the sharp texture had dulled just enough to make it workable IWB. I didn't feel the need to resort to sanding, but it's certainly aggressive straight out of the box.

Jesus, there is a lot of steel around that APX barrel on the front of the slide. From that angle it makes the other 2 look downright fragile.
