NEW Smith & Wesson M&P Carry Comp Series

Smith & Wesson has just announced a new series within the M&P line of pistols, the M&P Carry Comp series. For anyone not in the know as to what a Carry Comp is, it involves compensating the muzzle rise during recoil by venting gas upward against the impulse through a compensator cut into the pistol’s slide and barrel near the muzzle.

However, the new S&W M&P Carry Comp series comes with the compensator cut directly from the slide and barrel.
