I live in CT. My LGS said the reason they don’t have this gun is because S&W does not make 10 round magazines for the 3.6 inch. But I thought that the 4 inch barrel has the same magazine. On top
of that they make a MA compliant version with 10 round magazines. Any ideas guys and gals?

There is something strange going on with this. S&W does indeed sell a MA compliant 3.6 2.0 with a 10 round magazine and it also has a 10 lb trigger.
The model # is 13008.
Some online sellers say: Sale not allowed in California; Maryland; Puerto Rico.
You should be able to get that one but who wants a 10lb trigger?

This is very much like the funky laws in Illinois. While some counties have magazine restrictions, mine does not. Yet I cannot get a a magazine from S&W that holds over 10 rounds, that includes sending a gun in for service. Send it in with a mag that holds over 10 rounds, get it back with a 10 round magazine. Yet I can drive down the street and buy a gun/mags or just mag that holds 17 rounds, just not directly from S&W.

I'm pretty sure this magazine fits in a 3.6" 2.0. https://gunmagwarehouse.com/smith-wesson-s-w-m-p-m2-0-compact-9mm-10-round-magazine.html

I think that S&W hasn't gotten around to selling the 3.6" with the 10 round magazines w/o the crazy MA trigger. Here is a link to a thread on this site that might be of interest to you.

Good Luck but I think you are just going to have to wait until S&W sells one with a 10 round mag. You can call them and hassle them but I doubt that will do anything.

Totally agree with that. If they make a 10 round MA compliant they should also be able to have one available in CT without the 10lb trigger

Here is a place that has them. It might be a good idea for travelers who find themselves accidentally across enemy lines.

Wow, that link looks exactly like the one I posted right above it.
GCVs problem is that S&W doesn't sell the the regular 3.6" with a 10 round magazine.
There is no SKU so his LGS in CT cant order one and evidently wont order the one with 15 round mags and keep or pin the mags.
A different LGS could order a MA compliant one but they come with 10lb triggers.
His only solution is to wait for the regular 3.6" 2.0 to be sold by S&W with 10 round mags OR
he can order one online and have it shipped to a FFL in CT without magazines.
The FFL would note NO MAGAZINES which is a hassle in a transfer.
Then he can buy the mags in the link and be 100% legal.
The problem with that is tack almost $100 onto the price of the M&P if you want two magazines.
That's about $500 for a gun that was selling for $299 in July but the online store got to keep the 15 round mags.
CT has F'd up laws, they passed a Hi cap ban, if you had mags that held more 10 rounds before the ban then you have to register them with the State.
Very F'd and very anti 2A because of Sandy Hook.
Like the Hi cap ban would have prevented that from happening.:no

That about sums it up Mick! I'm going to wait. If it's too long of a wait maybe I'll get a 4".
I'm wondering if .4" would make much of a distance. S&W thought so enough to make both models. So who knows.

Mick, you hit the nail right on the head! I guess iI'm waiting. If I get tired or waiting, I might get the 4" compact. From everything I see it's the same pistol except it has a .4" longer barrel. I doubt that .4" of a longer barrel will make much of a concealment difference. But on the other hand S&W thinks it makes enough of a difference to have made a 3.6" version.

That magazine capacity restriction laws, really upsets me.
I can't believe they got away with it.
We have a Dem governor here in Colorado, and that's always a concern.

Order the 13008, have it shipped to your transferring dealer and order an Apex Trigger (if you find the trigger it has unacceptable).
