    What’s your favorite aftermarket barrel for the compact 2.0 threaded for a comp!?

  2. FcknGerry on August 19, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    I’m very new to firearms and just purchased a m&p shield 2.0. I’d like a light for it what is a good brand to start with or something that you personally trust?

  3. Black Wolf on August 19, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    This was three years ago. I assume you’ve had time to pick a favorite. I have an M&P 2.0 Compact, want a barrel, and I’m not too worried about having to have it fitted. Apex, Faxon, or Black List?

  4. Kantshes on August 19, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Any other companies beside the one listed that sells barrels for the M&P9 2.0 4" barrel?

  5. FozzyNW on August 19, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Good afternoon. I love your vids watched them all, sub. I need help. I have M&P 2.0 compact 4”. I bought Ed Brown ported slide but it’s 4.25. Fully assembled $600. When I got it. Realized guide rod recoil spring hair too short. I was like duh once I tried to assemble. Ed Brown will not get back to me. Want to know if just need to buy a 4.25 barrel & guide rod recoil spring and my gun will be back in action. PLEASE HELP!! 🙏

  6. greg deezey on August 19, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    What trigger is this? I’m looking for a red trigger for M&P 2.0

  8. Gordo Castillo on August 19, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    Would these fit the 2.0 3.6 compact? Or do they make them for that pistol?

  9. Russell Robinson on August 19, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Does the Taran tactical base pad extension work with the Mp9 2.0 compact?

  10. Tim Neely on August 19, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Will it do +p amo????

  11. Harry Courtright on August 19, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Thank you for this video. It’s the second review video on the Faxon M&P9c 2.0 barrel that I’ve watched tonight, but I have read and watched reviews on it in the past. This is the first review I’ve seen that’s mentioned this barrel having an extended lock time. That is crucial factor for considering whether or not I’d spend money to replace the barrel in mine. Now that Faxon 4” chameleon barrel will be mine next time I get some money coming in.

  12. I Plead The 2nd on August 19, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Bro I really like that orange Apex flatty but I can’t find it in that color. Do you have a link directly to that one specifixally? The link in the description only goes to a black one and the Apex site doesn’t have it. HELP! Lol

  13. J Ames on August 19, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    does the faxon barrel fix the early unlocking in the m2.0 or is that only the apex barrel?

  14. mariithekid Bey on August 19, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Can u put a 2.0 barrel on a 1.0

  15. J on August 19, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Holster to fit with the olight pl mini?

  16. Tactical Toolbox on August 19, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    I agree brother… I made a mistake because the coating on the barrel hood was preventing it from premature unlocking… Once the coating wore off I noticed it. I made an update video and spoke about the correction

  17. badhat chat on August 19, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    I have an m&p 2.0 3.6inch barrel but I want a threaded barrel and suggestions?

  18. Cole Sandifer on August 19, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Did faxon ever correct the barrel length for the threaded version?

  19. Johna on August 19, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    M&p looks soo good. That trigger is nasty tho. Im a fan of matte black EVERYTHING on guns 😂 the offset bright color just kills me. Good video bro

  20. Orlando McMiller on August 19, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Hey I just found out that Apex has a drop-in barrel for the 4” compact barrel available in both treaded and non treaded. Let me know what you think of it.

  21. John Doe on August 19, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Wait so early unlocking w. Faxon barrels is still a thing? If this is the case i’m just going to return it.

    Also i tried to use the coupons on Brownells and none worked.

  22. The Infamous Six Cylinder on August 19, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Do you have a preference over the faxon barrel compared to the apex tactical barrel???

  23. Danny Baxter on August 19, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Have you tried the blacklist industries barrel? Wanted to know if that one solves the early chamber drop ? Really like the look of it. Drop in ultra match. Whoops like to know your thoughts. Thanks for all the great content !

  24. AHS95 on August 19, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    I wish they had the barrel for 40s&w

  25. 1lowbo50 on August 19, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    I have a question might be dumb but I have a 40 m&p 2.0 compact, the question is I’m I able to put a 9mm slide and barrel to that lower of the 40?

  26. Sunny cat 85 on August 19, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    APEX has 100% drop in baral’s now in black

  27. Gordo Castillo on August 19, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    Have you heard if they fixed the prob for the comps on the threaded barrels ?

  28. Toys Express on August 19, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    just bought me a 4.25 9mm stock barrel for my M&P 2.0. 40C. What do you think on those swap.If I’m gonna spent $200 to @300 on a barrel I might as well buy another M&P 2.0…LOL

  29. xSiNx on August 19, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    I am trying to get a thread barrel for my shield 45, was wondering if I could get any tips on where to get it

  30. John Doe on August 19, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    After reviewing all the ones you have for the compact; which is the best drop in barrel?

  31. Richard Sanchez Jr. on August 19, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Man, I’ve been saving up for my first pistol and settled on the M&P2.0 compact this morning. Hopefully this isn’t a gateway to more lol. Looking forward to customizing this 2.0!👍

  32. Soco3kgt on August 19, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    I have the 3.6" version, should the 4" threaded still work?

  33. retros or die79 Boxing on August 19, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    They should have a threaded barrel for Sdve line of Smith & Wesson

  34. Osceola Micanopy on August 19, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    What trigger is that???

  35. thehennessee on August 19, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    Hope they come out with a 3.6in barrel

  36. Pointy Bits on August 19, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    Question! Do you know of anyone making barrels in the 40S&W caliber for the M&P 2.0 Compact?

  37. Cgreen3110 on August 19, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    Coupon code for apex? Going to buy a threaded 5” for M&p 2.0

  38. Psyko Sematic on August 19, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    Which backstrap you like on the compact ? I can’t make my mind up lol

  39. tony45x220 on August 19, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    Wow dry ordered this threaded barrel for my m2.0 Compact and I see why it sticks out more than I’d expect it… Great review pointing out that Faxon basically has the same threaded barrel that fits better with the M&P 4.25" gun and don’t have a dedicated version for the 4"…hoping to keep the carbon off the front of my gun but this explanation makes sense on why it’s a touch too long… But of a bummer

  40. Markus B on August 19, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    What do you think about using a Stock 4.25in barrel in the 4" compact? Won a ebay bid for 28 bucks on a New S&W 4.25in .40 cal barrel and plan on throwing it in my M&P40 M2.0 4 inch Compact.

  41. Mr. Lasagna on August 19, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    Out of the 4in and 3.6in compacts, which do you recommend?

  42. Notsuh inc on August 19, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    Does anyone have or know where a conversion barrel for a .40c to a .357? I would like to use it in a 40 smith&wesson 2.0- 3.6in? Id appreciate it if you could link me please!

  43. SVTsupercharged on August 19, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    I use the 5" Wilson Combat stainless steel ported barrel on my Smith & Wesson 1.0. Easily the best I’ve used yet.

  44. Adon Buhleebit on August 19, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    So would this fit a 2.0 3.6" as opposed to the 4" ??

  45. sumguy83 on August 19, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    @Tactical Toolbox, do you know if the Taran Tactical extended magazine will work for the 15 round magazine?

  46. tim warumzer on August 19, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    Looking at this, the g19 and czp10c and held both the g19 and tonight the M&P2.0 compact. What are your thoughts on reliability for the M&P2.0? I really like the way this piece feels and looked. Will look at the P10c tomorrow. Great channel I have thoroughly enjoyed all your videos and have learned a bunch from you brother. Thanks in advance! 🤙🤙

  47. Matt on August 19, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Great vid! Did you get this sorted? Any suggestions on a more flush 2.0c threaded barrel?

  48. DR 2013 on August 19, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Is this barrel just for looks, or will it enhance the shootability of the gun?

  49. Joey Charron on August 19, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    These barrels do not address accuracy. I tried one of the faxon in my m&p and it shoots identically to my stock barrel which is not very impressive. Looks like I have to now spend money on an apex semi drop in barrel that is known to actually get a good lock up

  50. Jaykob Smart on August 19, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    Do they make a threaded barrel for the .40 version?
