First Look: Smith & Wesson Announces S&W EQUALIZER Micro Compact 9mm Pistol


NEW from Smith & Wesson comes the Equalizer! A micro-compact 9mm CCW pistol packed with features. 

Featuring S&W’s EZ Technology that makes racking the slide and manipulating the pistol much easier, the Equalizer is, in most respects, like a much upgraded Shield EZ. While the Shield EZ was limited to small-capacity magazines, the Equalizer comes in strong with up to 15-rounds per mag.

Another major feature of the Equalizer is that this comes optics ready! Featuring an optics plate, the Equalizer can mount any pattern of pistol optics (but adaptor plates might be needed). 

All Equalizers have a grip safety much like a 1911, but they are also offered both with and without a manual thumb safety.

Full list of features:

  • Easy-to-rack slide
  • Slide cut for optics
  • Reversible magazine release
