Brownells, Smith & Wesson Team Up to Make “The All American Dream Gun”

Brownells and Smith & Wesson have collaborated to create a highly-customized, America-themed version of the Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 pistol.

BrownellsDreamGun2017Brownells and Smith & Wesson – two legendary American firearm industry companies – have teamed up to create “The All American Dream Gun.”

Designed to show off each company’s strength – the legendary firearms built by Smith & Wesson, and the extensive selection of firearm accessories from Brownells – The All American Dream Gun boasts the very best in American firearm innovation and creativity.

Using the newly-released Smith & Wesson M&P M2.0 4.25” pistol chambered in 9mm as the canvas, the experts at Brownells sought to customize four areas of the firearm: trigger, sights, silence and patriotic style.

Brownells wanted to help shooters make the most of the M&P M2.0 pistol’s improved trigger and enhanced grip texture by adding a sighting system conducive to fast target acquisition. To accomplish this, Brownells adapted the slide to accept a Trijicon RMR LED sight with a 6.5 MOA red dot.   Continue reading
