A brief history of the M&P® Series Pistols:
The Smith & Wesson® M&P (Military and Police) Pistol was introduced in the Summer of 2005. It is a polymer-framed, short recoil operated, locked breach semi-automatic pistol.
The M&P is a striker fired pistol. The jointed trigger system prevents the striker (firing pin) from discharging unless the trigger is fully depressed. When the slide enters the battery position, the striker engages the sear. As the trigger is pulled, a protrusion on the trigger bar engages and raises a safety plunger.
As the trigger bar moves rearward to its final position, it engages the sear and rotates the sear downward to fully “cock” and release the striker. The striker travels forward to contact and fire the cartridge.
When the pistol cycles, the striker spring is compressed to about 98% prior to the trigger being pulled. Smith & Wesson®. Many of the shooting sports organizations classify this as a Double Action Only pistol.
Unique to the M&P Pistol Series is a Sear Deactivation Lever. This allows the pistol to be disassembled without having to pull the trigger.
