If you’ve been holding on to your M&P Shield Gen 1, 2.0, or even picked up a new Shield Plus, Faxon has got some new barrels available for you. The new Faxon Match Series barrels come in a couple different configurations and coating types and are currently available in 9mm. I’ve personally never thought of the Shield as being a suppressor host but if someone is throwing in a threaded barrel, why not?

Something I have grown to love doing in competition settings is to bring my personal carry gun to a match to really put it through its paces. Even though the Shield series of pistols really isn’t designed for that type of thing, these new Faxon Match series barrels just might help you shore up your accuracy or let you add a compensator to the end of the barrel for faster follow up shots.
