Smith and Wesson just released their “best-performing micro-compact to date” using “next-gen EZ technology, low recoil impulse, and versatile magazine capacity all in a compact footprint” for the “ultimate CCW” pistol. it’s called the Equalizer, and it provides the end-user with up to 15+1 rounds of 9mm Parabellum/9x19mm NATO firepower in a pistol specifically designed for concealed carry.
Upon first seeing the S&W Equalizer, DefenseReview noticed the prominent grip safety on the backstrap, as well as the pistol’s slim profile and rounded edges, which should make it carry quite comfortably. And, the top rear portion of the slide’s cut for a combat optic. The pistol also sports a ‘single-action trigger that allows for a short take-up, clean break, and fast reset to make follow-up shots quicker”, which is nice.
Anyway, here’s all the info and specs, right from S&W’s website:
S&W® EQUALIZER™ NTS
MSRP: $ 599.00
