SHOT Show 2023 – Specifically conceived to better harness to harness the speed of the 5.7×28mm round, Smith & Wesson’s new M&P pistol is based on a new gas-operated system
The Smith & Wesson M&P5.7 5.7×28mm semi-automatic pistol made its debut at the 2023 edition of the Las Vegas SHOT Show, as Smith & Wesson’s first foray with the increasingly popular high-velocity small caliber developed by the Belgian FN Herstal group for the P90 sub-machinegun decades ago.
In an effort to enhance the performance of the increasingly popular 5.7×28mm round in a polymer handgun platform, the M&P5.7 features Smith & Wesson's new gas-operated, locked-breech, rotating TEMPO Barrel System – a 5-inch barrel allowing for a quicker extraction once the bullet passes the gas port, creating a more secured fireform effect. This key feature allows for increased precision following the first trigger pull and works to utilize the ballistic advantages of the 5.7×28mm round.
The M&P5.7 is slide-cut for optics to accommodate your preferred micro red dots, has a Picatinny-style rail for added accessories, and includes a 1/2×28 threaded muzzle with thread protector to allow for suppressed shooting capabilities. Its single-action flat-face trigger maintains a crisp break and is designed to allow for consistent finger placement that translates to more accurate and repeatable shooting. This pistol boasts a 22-round capacity and ships with two magazines.
MSRP for the US market is set at $699.00.
