When I arrived at the S&W booth on day one I immediately went to the first M&P 2.0 I saw, which was the full FDE 9mm version(the one pictured). The grip was really nice, really grippy while not being to abrasive. I decided to test the “finely tuned, crisper trigger...tactile and audible reset”, and much to my surprise this M&P 2.0 had all the above when I tested. I decided to test a few others in different calibers and what I noticed was that there was a big inconsistency with how the trigger felt from gun to gun. Some had a nice crisp and audible reset and some were so gritty I couldn’t feel where the actual reset was. One of the things I love about Glock is that every Glock will have the same trigger feel, the M&P 2.0 didn’t have the same feeling.
I left the S&W booth pretty disappointed in the new generation M&P. Smith and Wesson made a huge deal about the trigger, especially when I was at the M&P display. I was left disappointed that some of the pistols I tried were super gritty, didn’t have a crisp reset, while some of the others offered a very nice reset. I am hoping that S&W will get more consistent with triggers, as I liked everything else about the new 2.0 M&P.
