Smith & Wesson has announced that they are now going to offer an FDE M&P 45 M2.0 in addition to the all-black version already on the market.

The M2.0 line offers shooters some very requested features like a lighter trigger with a more crisp break, a more aggressive texture on the grip, and numerous other features that take the M&P to the next level. The new flat dark earth pistols are being fitted with TRUGLO TFX tritium and fiber optic sights giving end-users a bit more value for their money.

Here is what Smith & Wesson had to say about the new pistol configuration:
