Massachusetts-based Smith & Wesson is changing things up on their popular M&P M2.0 Compact pistol by adding a flat dark earth option.

Announced this week, the pistol, currently just the 9mm M&P9 variant with a 4-inch barrel, will now feature a Cerakote FDE slide over a polymer FDE frame. The modular handgun’s four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts, as well as two magazine floorplates and sleeves, will likewise be in FDE rather than the normal black.

First introduced in late 2017, the Compact uses a 4-inch barrel and has a 15+1 round capacity in 9mm with an unloaded weight of just under 24-ounces. This is a dead ringer in comparison to the Glock 19 and 23 and a hair lighter than the 26-ounce P-10 C series from Czech gun maker CZ.

Other features on the Compact include an accessory rail, stainless slide with an Armornite coating, and an 18-degree grip angle. The gun ships with two magazines and a pair of mag extension sleeves for using full-sized magazines. Since its introduction, Smith has also introduced the handgun in both .40-caliber M&P40 and .45ACP M&P45 formats as well.

MSRP on all M&P M2.0 Compact models is $569.
