Fans of Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0 and Shield Plus series pistols get some interesting new builds. S&W Tennessee Special Makeup pistols feature the a Tennessee Tri-Star emblem laser engraved onto the barrel. The logo pays homage to the Tennessee state flag, representing its three Grand Divisions: West, Middle and East Tennessee.

The new offering includes two 3.1-inch barrel M&P9 Shield Plus micro-compacts, with and without a thumb safety, a 4-inch barrel M&P9 M2.0 compact with a thumb safety, and a 4.25-inch barrel M&P9 M2.0 full-size, also with a thumb safety.

“M&P striker-fired pistols have remained a cornerstone of Smith & Wesson’s legacy over the years and embody our brand’s ethos of reliability, performance, and durability. These extensions proudly bearing the engraved Tri-Star emblem are a tribute to our historic move and the rich heritage of our new home in Tennessee,” said Andrew Gore, Product Manager, Handguns.

Editor’s Take:

We’ve seen some previous special models from S&W honoring the move to Tennessee already. And while special logos and such are cool for collecting, we can honestly say these have all been excellent shooters as well. We recently sent rounds downrange with the Volunteer XV Pro and Volunteer X 308 rifles at Athlon Outdoor Rendezvous. And they both impressed in both function and form–feature-rich carbines displaying accurate fire.

Then Frank Melloni the Volunteer XV Pro DMR in 6mm ARC. “Overall, I found it to be a comfortable rifle to shoot that will equally serve the needs of the home defender, hunter, or long-range precision competitor,” Melloni wrote.

We expect nothing less with the new Volunteer Special Makeup pistols. Yes, they come with some unique styling for collectors and certainly anyone who hails from Tennessee. But they should prove capable defenders as well, and we can think of no higher praise.
