Recoil Control for M&P M2.0

Introducing the New THUMB REST Takedown Lever

Master Recoil

The Align Tactical® THUMB REST TAKEDOWN LEVER integrates an ergonomic ledge for the support hand's thumb to firmly lock down against, serving as a brake against muzzle flip to provide the fastest follow-up sight picture. Increased surface contact with the pistol reduces support hand slippage while providing an index point for a consistent high thumbs-forward grip. Swap from the flat takedown lever to offer maximum control and speed in Smith&Wesson® M&P M2.0® pistols for a competitive edge.

M&P M2.0 Thumb Rest

Secure Design

The thumb rest ledge extends 30 degrees forward of the center of rotation, directing applied pressure (counter clockwise) towards an included over-travel stop to rigidly remain locked in place. When used in the opposite direction (clockwise) for disassembly, rotation is easy with a simple pinch and turn of the ledge.

Enhanced Trigger Pin

We've taken our takedown lever to the next level by including an enhanced trigger pin with anti-rotation stop, which is designed to engage a back-face channel bottom for added security.

Horizontal Position Stop

When rotated up to the horizontal position, our Thumb Rest Takedown Lever has the same security as our similar patented/patent-pending Thumb Rests.


Establishing a two-handed grip creates a naturally angled cant of one’s support hand thumb. Incorporating a secondary receiving slope of 15 degrees allows for evenly distributed thumb pressure and serves as a guide for settling into proper contact position (with the thumb print pressed flat onto the rest).

USPSA Production Approved
