NEW 30 Super Carry Shield EZ from Smith & Wesson

smith & Wesson Shield EZ 30 Super Carry

Today we learned of two new pistols in the Shield EZ line from Smith & Wesson. What sets these two new models apart? Simple, they're in a brand new caliber, the 30 Super Carry. What is 30 Super Carry? Check out our article on the new caliber >>HERE<< for more information.

The new Shield EZ remains largely unchanged from previous iterations aside from the new caliber. Shooters still have the option of choosing a manual safety lever, or omitting it, this being the reason why two new models have been introduced. A benefit of the reduced diameter rounds is an increase in capacity, up to 10+1 rounds of 30 Super Carry fit in the gun, opposed to 8+1 of 9x19 or 380ACP. Interestingly, the external extractor seems to have gone away in favor of a new component, elsewhere on the gun.  MSRP is $521 on the gun, though street prices are likely to be lower.
