Custom S&W M&P By MOD 1 Firearms


In this video we show off the custom Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm done by MOD 1 Firearms. This gun is absolutely one of the best looking guns in our inventory without question. Everything about it just screams awesomeness! from the Patriot brown Cerakote to all the milling work done on the slide of the weapon. Most all of the internals of the gun has been upgraded to parts form Apex including their trigger kit. This Smith & Wesson M&P 9 is also wearing a set of blacked out Warren Tactical Sights and a KKM Precision barrel. Like the custom Glock 19 we had done by MOD 1 Firearms this thing is just beautiful! if you would like to get your gun customized by MOD 1 click on the link to visit their website and shoot them an email, you’ll be glad you did.
