Smith & Wesson Re-Skins the M&P and Offers Threaded Barrels

M&P pistols will be available in two new colors in 2015, Tan and Carbon Fiber.

Range Kits with factory threaded barrels will also be available for the first time. For an extra $80, an additional barrel will be included directly from the factory. The 9mm barrel will have a 1/2″-28-2A thread, while the .45 barrel is .578″-28-2A pattern


The new colors will be available on both compact and fullsize guns chambered in 9mm or .40S&W.

Previously a tan chassis was exclusive to M&P .45’s and the VTAC edition guns.

The Carbon Fiber is a pattern, not a material change, and as a result is the same price as traditional black models.

      now if they would use REAL carbon fiber.

  • To Whom It May Concern

    Does the factory threaded barrel range kit extend to the Pro CORE non-L line? With raised sights and an optics mount, it appears to be well suited for suppression. I’d buy that in a factory setup.

    I would prefer better stippling and texturing of the slippery areas around the top of the frame and grip, rather than some superficial patterns.

    So in other words, Smith and Wesson had nothing new at SHOT Show? Well why didn’t you just say that? O.o

    Unless I am thinking of the wrong thing, my 2 year old FS M&P has a threaded barrel so I can just thread a silencer onto it. So what is new about a threaded barrel?
