LaserMax Shipping CenterFire Laser for S&W SHIELD
LaserMax today announced that after working closely with the engineers at Smith & Wesson, the latest edition of the CenterFire Laser Series is shipping. Backorders to dealers will begin today. The CenterFire Laser has been designed especially for use with the new Smith & Wesson® M&P ShieldTM pistols, which were unveiled at the annual NRA show in St. Louis, Missouri.

The M&P ShieldTM is Smith & Wesson's new slim, concealable, lightweight, striker-fired polymer pistol. Available in 9mm and .40 S&W, the new M&P Shield features a slim design combined with the proven and trusted features found
in the M&PTM Pistol Series. From the pistol's easily concealed one-inch profile to its optimized 18-degree grip angle, the M&P Shield offers professional-grade features intended to aide users with simple operation and reliable performance.
The CenterFire laser for the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield was created to integrate with the tactical design that matches the style and contours of the gun.
The Shield laser is the newest member of CenterFire Series offering the same great value, high-quality and accuracy found in all LaserMax Lasers.
The laser mounts directly to the frame without changing out parts or altering your weapon - user installed in minutes. The constant red laser beam sits
just under the bore for the highest accuracy and prevents your finger from blocking the beam. Patented, ambidextrous activation for right or left-handed shooters with a distinct On/Off switch lets the user decide when they need it.
"We are excited to work with Smith & Wesson on the launch of the M&P Shield. In keeping with the LaserMax tradition for innovation, we designed our laser to look as though it was not an afterthought, but fully integrated with the weapon." says Eric Haase, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
"We know an important aspect of conceal carry is the users' ability to control potentially dangerous situations. The LaserMax CenterFire for Shield gives the user that control."
Mario Pasantes, Senior Vice President of Marketing and International Sales for Smith & Wesson said, "We designed the M&P Shield to incorporate the exceptional features of all of our M&P products in a lightweight firearm that is highly functional yet comfortable to carry and shoot. Early in the process, we teamed up with accessory providers that had the foresight and ability to develop superior accessories for the new M&P Shield. The result is an exciting new offering, including accessories that are available immediately, all of which can be combined to suit each user's particular situation. LaserMax was an important part of delivering this value proposition to the market."
