Smith & Wesson Introduces New M&P Pro Series C.O.R.E. Pistols

Subscribe to Feed

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (November 7, 2012) --- Smith & Wesson Corp. announced that four new models have been added to the Company’s premier line of M&P® polymer pistols. Based on the popular Pro Series line of competition ready firearms, the new M&P C.O.R.E (Competition Optics Ready Equipment) models offer consumers a specialized platform for adding accessory optics to their personal handguns. Engineered to accept six popular styles of competition based optics, the M&P C.O.R.E models are easily adapted to meet any demand.

At the foundation of the new M&P C.O.R.E. resides a specialized mounting platform on the slide of the pistol that can be conveniently changed to match the desired optic. Through the use of removable brackets, consumers are able to simply install the corresponding mounting screws to achieve the precise fit and height required. Designed to work in conjunction with the Trijicon RMR®, C-More STS, Leupold® DeltaPoint™, Docter, Insight® MRDS™ and JPoint™, the M&P C.O.R.E. offers quick and custom sight installation for the industry’s top aftermarket red-dot sight manufacturers.

The new M&P C.O.R.E. models will be available in both 9mm and .40 S&W with either a 4.25 or 5-inch barrel configuration. Engineered as a true competition platform, each model will retain original design features including a polymer frame with a through-hardened stainless steel slide and barrel, ambidextrous operating controls, striker fire action and Melonite® finish. For improved handling the M&P C.O.R.E. models feature a new textured interchangeable back strap with prominent stippling. Three patented palmswell grips are supplied with each pistol, providing shooters the ability to tailor the grip size to their personal preference.

For improved accuracy and precise shot placement during competition, the M&P C.O.R.E. pistols are standard with a Performance Center sear. The specialized sear allows for a crisp 4.5 pound trigger pull along with a faster, defined reset in between shots. On top of the slide, Smith & Wesson has added higher sights that can be used in concordance with the mounted optic. Other standard features of the new pistols include a crowned muzzle for improved accuracy, picatinny-style equipment rail and reversible magazine release.

Internal features of the new M&P C.O.R.E. remain consistent with the original design and include a stainless steel internal chassis designed to reduce flex while also providing a stable shooting platform. The M&P pistol’s low-bore axis helps maintain ease-of-use and a comfortable feel and the passive trigger safety prevents the pistol from firing if dropped regardless of angle. A sear release lever eliminates the need to press the trigger in order to disassemble and the simple take down lever is located on the left side of the frame. A loaded chamber indicator is present on top of the slide and rear scalloped slide serrations enable easy firearm manipulation.

The 9mm M&P C.O.R.E. is standard with a 17+1 round magazine capacity and the .40 S&W variant features a 15+1 round capacity. Without a mounted optic the 5-inch barrel models have an empty weight of 26 ounces while the 4.25-inch pistols measure two ounces lighter.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (November 7, 2012) --- Smith & Wesson Corp. announced that two new models have been added to the Performance Center’s line of high performance 1911 pistols. Machined to exacting tolerances and custom built by highly skilled craftsmen, the new Performance Center® SW1911 models provide feature specific options for both competition and personal defense needs.

At the foundation of each pistol is a package of custom features and the high standards held by the Performance Center for quality and innovation. Available in a traditional stainless steel model with a 5-inch barrel or in Smith & Wesson’s patented scandium alloy frame with a 4.25-inch barrel, the new models combine custom handwork with the venerable 1911 platform. Reliable, accurate, and expertly engineered, the Performance Center Custom SW1911 and Performance Center Round Butt SW1911 continue the Company’s longstanding line of precision built firearms.

Performance Center Custom SW1911
Designed as a specialized option for competition orientated shooters, the Performance Center Custom SW1911 is crafted from the finest components under the skilled hands of master gunsmiths. Manufactured with a stainless steel slide and frame, the custom pistol is standard with a 5-inch barrel and hand-fitted features available only from Smith & Wesson. Chambered in .45 ACP, the pistol shares exclusive custom made Performance Center features with its hand-cut chamber, hand-polished feed ramp, hand-tuned action job and hand-lapped frame and slide rails for increased reliability and accuracy.

Built to the highest specifications, the Performance Center SW1911 is standard with a precision crown muzzle, oversized external extractor and an ambidextrous frame safety. Professional shooters will appreciate the pistol’s competition-based features including a match grade trigger with over travel stop, speed configuration hammer and crisp 3.5 to 4 pound trigger pull. For improved handling, the 1911 pistol has been fitted with blue G10 custom grips featuring 30 lines-per-inch checkering. On the frame of the pistol, the Performance Center has helped reduce overall weight with slide ported lightening cuts, which also give a distinctive look to this classic design.

On top of the slide, an adjustable rear sight and black post front sight aid in precise alignment during competition. Other Performance Center features include a match-grade throated barrel and a Briley spherical bushing for improved accuracy. A glass bead finish, traditional grip safety, plus an 8+1 magazine capacity round out the features of this custom 1911 package from Smith & Wesson. The Performance Center Custom SW1911 measures 8.7 inches in overall length and has an empty weight of 40.5 ounces.

Performance Center Round Butt SW1911
Sharing the same handcrafted and customized features of its full-size brethren, the Performance Center Round Butt SW1911 combines the Company’s patented scandium alloy metallurgy with a commander-length frame. Measuring 7.95 inches in overall length the round butt SW1911 offers a reduced weight of 29.6 ounces. Ideal for concealed carry or recreation shooting, the Performance Center SW1911 is standard with a scandium frame mated with a stainless steel slide and barrel. As with all 1911 pistols offered from the custom shop, the new model has been hand fitted and assembled with the highest quality components and meticulous attention to detail. Customized features of this specialized design include a Performance Center action job, throated barrel, polished feed ramp and a precision crowned muzzle with a Briley spherical barrel bushing.

The Performance Center Round Butt SW1911 shares other common features of the 5-inch model including a competition match trigger with over travel stop, competition speed hammer and orange G10 custom grips. The pistol’s two-tone finish and slide ported lightening cuts add a distinguished look to this long-standing platform, while its ambidextrous controls and smooth operating features elevate performance. On top of the slide, the Performance Center has enhanced sight alignment with a black post front sight and an adjustable rear sight. Available with an 8+1 magazine capacity, the new commander length pistol provides yet another quality option in Smith & Wesson’s robust line of 1911 configurations.

Coast Guard Academy To Design Stages For 2013 Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor Nationals

by Editor 19. October 2012 06:00

BERRYVILLE, Ark. – The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) and Smith & Wesson have announced that for the fifth year in a row members of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy’s Combat Arms Team will take part in the Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor National Championship, designing two of the 12 stages and working the match as Safety Officers.

Now in its 16th consecutive year, the Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor National Championship has grown to become one of the premier events in all the shooting sports, and marks the official start of the IDPA competition season.

The Coast Guard Academy’s role in the production of the Smith & Wesson Indoor Nationals began in 2009 when the Combat Arms Team had 18 cadets and five staff participating in the match and one of the stages was based on a Coast Guard design.

Since then the Coast Guard Academy has been a fixture at the championship and designed and run the competition’s most prominent stage located on the public range area of the Smith & Wesson Shooting Sports Center complex. The cadets have also had the privilege each year of presenting the colors at the awards banquet.

“Smith & Wesson has worked closely with collegiate shooting teams in New England and has established a strong working relationship with the Coast Guard Academy. The Academy’s Combat Arms Team has built a reputation for designing some of the most creative stages at the Indoor Nationals and their professionalism is a credit to Coast Guard. It is a great pleasure to once again welcome the cadets of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy to the Smith & Wesson Indoor Nationals,” said Joyce Wilson, executive director for IDPA.

“It’s an honor for the team to represent both the U.S. Coast Guard and the Academy while serving the shooting community. We are extremely proud of the important role the Academy’s Combat Arms Team plays in this championship and look forward to working with the staff and competitors,” said Chad Barber of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.

“Though the Smith & Wesson Indoor Nationals kicks-off the IDPA shooting season, for those cadets that are seniors, the match represents an exciting culmination of a leadership and planning exercise that will serve them well as they prepare to dedicate their futures to the service of the Nation.”

The USCGA Combat Arms Team was formed in the early 70’s to compete against the other service academies. After 2001 the team turned its focus towards law enforcement qualifications and other competitions. As a result of their training and experience senior cadets on the team have been afforded internship opportunities during summer training periods with several of the Coast Guard’s Tactical Law Enforcement Teams (TACLET), Maritime Safety and Security Teams’s (MSST) and Maritime Security Response Team (MSRT).

The 2013 match will take place February 21-23 and is expected to draw over 300 of the best IDPA shooters to Springfield, Massachusetts to compete on the indoor ranges of the Smith & Wesson Shooting Sports Center.
