This is the competition variant of the standard M&P9 from Smith and Wesson, known as the Performance Center model. It sports a longer barrel and slide than the standard model, with porting along the top of the slide.
Marui have done a fantastic job recreating this pistol in airsoft form, right down to the ports on the silver barrel which resides below the ported slide.
Sports Performance Center trades on the left side of the slide.
The M&P9L model has a removable plate on the top of the slide, which allows the mounting of an RMR dot scope, sold separately by Marui and various other brands.
Being Tokyo Marui, this pistol comes with a high quality ABS plastic frame and slide, but has a great realistic matt finish and of course un-paralleled gas efficiency and snappy blowback.
You'll also find authentic Smith and Wesson insignia on the right slide, just like the real steel.
All controls are quite tightly grouped together, making them accessible to finger lengths of all sizes.
Authentic two-section trigger which also acts as a secondary safety (trigger will not move unless the entire lower section of the trigger is retracted).
This Performance Center model also features a non-adjustable trigger stop.
The magazine release features the same textured finish as the backstraps, offering maximum grip.
Semi-automatic blowback operation.
Not for a moment would you think the slide is of plastic construction.
Scalloped grip serrations on the rear of the slide have a very tactile feel and grip and look great.
Unlike the WE model, the Marui M&P9 ships with a safety lever on the left and right side of the frame.
Metal magazine holds 25 rounds
Green gas is recommended for temperatures below 20-22°C.
Adjustable hop-up mechanism located inside the ejection port, just like the PX4 model. No need to remove the slide to adjust it, just turn adjustment cog with your finger nail when the slide is locked backwards.
Lower 20mm rail allow the attachment of accessories.
Includes 3 separate backstraps in the box, allowing the shooter to adjust the size of the pistol grip for the perfect grip.
