New Smith & Wesson Handguns for 2015

10122_01_lg

Osage COunty guns is at it again. They continue to spill the beans on full line releases and pricing for major OEMs. Now up is Smith & Wessons news handguns for 2015 including their Carbon Fiber “finished” line of M&P handguns.

Looking at the photos, these look to be a water-transferred finish, not an actual carbon fiber frame. The specs claim the frame is “Black with Carbon Fiber Finish.”

Gimmicky, but definitely second-kind-of-cool.

    I’m an M&P fanboy..I have 4…but that is just. butt. ugly.

    If it’s just a finish they apply then why this? Wouldn’t a digi-cam scheme be useful?

    • JumpIf NotZero

      “Digi-cam” is probably less effective that fake carbon fiber, at least fake carbon blends into some poser rich environments.

  • Think of it this way. In several months, the unsold units be remaindered to CDNN and sold at an attractive discount. The money you save can then be spent on custom stippling and a fresh application of Cerakote in the color of your choice.

    Why? Just why?

  • Anonymoose

    Why no .45L?!

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Probably what they are planning for the MHS.

  • Dan

    Exactly, at first glance I was thinking oh hell the fast and furious crowd infiltrated the gun market.

  • Scott Hodin

    These will also be sold at AutoZone and Checker Auto Parts in the same aisle as equally-cheesy-looking “carbon fiber” shift knobs, cone air filters and intake tubes, and steering wheel covers. Um yeah, I’m sorry, but this looks awful.

  • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

    Of the literally THOUSANDS available water transfer prints available they chose the absolute cheesiest and crappy “carbon fiber” knockoff. It doesn’t even look like good carbon fiber.

    Someone in one of those meetings MUST have mentioned multi-cam at some point. Whoever laughed that guy out of the room in favor of this crappy carbon fiber should be fired.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    If there is any print lamer than fake carbon fiber… I’m not sure what it is. Hello Kitty or pink camo could at least be ironic. Fake carbon fiber is the bottom of the barrel.

  • Squirreltakular

    Wow. Please, no. How about OD green, Multicam, AOR1 or 2, Tigerstripe, umm… anything else? Even that insane shade of blue that FN uses on their 3-gun team’s guns would be better than this. Why?

  • USMC03Vet

    Obviously the carbon fiber gives the gun 15 more horse power at the wheels!

  • Madcap_Magician

    So in other words, nothing new from S&W this year?

  • 2ThinkN_Do2

    Did they hire that guy from Freedom Group, that used to be with Chrysler, and The Home Depot and . . . . . this is really sad : (
