    New M&P Compact

    Came across these pics on another forum.. Supposedly, this is a prototype, so there may still be some minor changes. Supposedly, the 9mm version will be out next month...





    Compact and fullsize together:

    Not a whole lot of difference when you stick the mag. ext. on it.

    Well, when carrying, it is the back of the grip that prints the most. So, the pinky extension is curved - it still makes a bit of a difference, despite the look in that pic. I see it w/ my compact P99 and the fullsize version.

    I want to eventually rent an M&P, whenever my range gets one in 9mm to rent. But even if I like it, I don't know if I really need anymore polymer guns - I already have 5, and may buy a Keltec 32 soon too.

    I like my SW99 and P99 so much, that I don't think there is enough of a difference in the M&P to justify me buying it even if I shoot it very well...

    Had I not found the P99, I would probably be more interested in the M&P.

    That is exactly where I stood on the p99. I thought the M&P 9mm was not going to be out until much later so I was looking very hard at the p99, but once I picked up an M&P I kind of lost interest in most everything else.

    No, I haven't heard about anything else. I imagine that it will be around Glock 26/Walther P99c size...

    I fondled one at the gun show last weekend and I thought it was the compact 'cause it was a lot smaller than I thought it would be. But from the pics I've seen it appears that what I saw and handled was the standard (non-compact). The grip felt very good and was much thinner than I expected, much more so that the blocky Glock or Sigma grip. The whole gun felt very nice.

    I still can't get over Smith & Wesson using the hollowed Military & Police name on a piece of plastic. {shudder}

    It's the 21st Century Dude. Ya gotta get over it

    A hard chromed slide on an M&P would look sweet

    What you most likely felt was the mid sized back strap on the grip. That is what comes on it from the factory, the small back strap makes it feel even thinner.

    I would imagine that is what it was, medium. It felt very good. I was a little supprised.

    I finally did it....

    Went to the Denton, Tx. gun show yesterday, 7/22/6, and bought a M & P 40. Couldn't pass it up for $409.95 + tax. The 9mm's were the same price. If you are at the Denton gun show today, check out A.J.C. Sports Shop booth. Best prices I've seen yet. One other dealer was selling them for $419.00.
    I'll take it to the range this week. Can't wait!!!!

    That's not bad. They are $450 here.

    I wanna try one before I would buy it, though. I already have 5 polymer 9mms... But, it looks nice

    I love mine. She's a full size .40. First time at the range I borrowed some extra mags from a dealer and put it thru 200 rounds of rapid fire tests.
    The excellent feel of the grip (1911 style) allowed me to use my usual grip so there was no muscle memory change. Serious shooters know this is very important to us. Its thin gripped but holds 15 and I really liked that vs my 1911's. Cant wait till the .45's come out!

    In 200 rounds 2 strays. All the rest in the black! No FTL's no FTF's. It shoots like a dream and its American made with a lifetime warranty.
    Take down is a snap, no tools needed for a standard clean up. I can do it in the dark with no problems. I'm sending mine to Dan Burwell to blast the slide to let the nice stainless finish come thru.

    Word on the street has it that Jack Bauer has a compact model in his ankle holster! Makes sense, S&W owns Walther.

    Want to know more? http://mp-pistol.com/boards/index.php I see Shipwreck there all the time.
