The Tempo Barrel System uses a locked-breech system that makes it so that the barrel doesn’t cam open until the bullet passes the gas port.

The slide has cutouts on the top to lighten the weight and create less reciprocating mass. It’s also ready for red dot optics and has forward slide serrations.

The M&P 5.7 is built with a flat-face trigger that is designed to provide consistent finger placement. This feature allows for improved accuracy and precision when shooting.

The single-action trigger break is crisp and responsive, which further contributes to the overall shooting experience by providing more repeatable and accurate shots.

Other features of the Smith & Wesson M&P 5.7 are the notable slim build with a textured grip, ambidextrous slide stop, and reversible magazine release.

Additionally, the Picatinny-style rail allows for easy attachment of various accessories, and it has a 1/2×28 threaded muzzle with a thread protector, for the option of suppressed shooting.
