Then I will care. Reply FDE M&P is pretty nice looking. Reply *Sees Hillary hole, closes wallet* Reply Poor quality and bad politics –> S&W not on my “to buy” list. Reply So basically nothing really new in the M&P line? How about fixing the triggers and then the accuracy issues with the 9mm. I liked mine when I had it. Then I tried the PPQ. It was a no brainer. Reply …. and also making it so they can’t fire out of battery. Reply The triggers really are terrible. I only started looking into the M&Ps recently because I like the way they point and the ergonomics are great, but those triggers are horrible. I even played with a Performance Center version that had zero tactile or audible reset. The regular ones all have a gritty initial take up and are mushy after that. Please fix the trigger, so I can replace my Glocks. Reply I just got a recent production M&P 9 full size with the latest barrel revision. I can report that I have had no accuracy issues testing it on paper from 5-25 yards and that the trigger now has an audible and tactile reset. Not as good as my Glocks or PPQ trigger reset, but it is 100% there. I also have to sheepishly admit that despite my initial “meh” thoughts about the trigger, I can run a rack of plates with the M&P way faster than my G17s. The PPQ still rules the roost, but I’m pretty happy with the M&P 9 so far. None of these pistols are bullseye or target guns so a fist sized group will do, but it shoots better than that. I think they finally got the kinks cleared up. Worth a look in my opinion. Dudes who moan a lot about trigger quality on a non-hunting, non specialized target gun are the same guys who say their golf game would have been a couple strokes better if only they had had that super deluxe set of carbon fiber clubs with the special grip material. If only. 🙂 Reply Yes they were supposed to have integrated the better trigger (a lot of which was reset-related) from the M&P Shield into the rest of the M&P line. I do believe that Walther can be thanked for that trigger quality improvement, as the Shield came out during their partnership and had a heck of a lot in common with the PPS. Anyhoo, the triggers should be better now than they were. There’s a decent aftermarket for upgrades (Apex and a couple others), but I personally wouldn’t do anything to the trigger on a gun that may be used for self defense. For target shooting and competition and hunting and such, sure thing. Reply It saddens me that I don’t have the FREEDOM to buy a new S&W revolver without an idiotic and aesthetic killing lock hole. I weep for my Country, will continue to boycott S&W. Reply You can get non- lock 442, 642 snubbies and certain pro series do not have the locks. I hate them too which is why the only Smith revolver I own is a no lock 442. Otherwise it’s Rugers for me, now that old man Ruger and his Fudd politics have passed into history. Reply Cool stuff! Reply Cool gun porn!!! My full size M&P .40 and .40c have never had an issue. Better grip than a lot of others, damn accurate, capable of being fired without a magazine, and easily carried IWB. My old 6906 is tried and tested reliable with every conceivable 9mm ammo. Thanks for the tour Reply Like the revolvers, best made today IMHO, especially the 8-round 627’s. Reply It’s a shame how they ruined the encore product line when they bought TC. I know a few smiths that can’t get parts or barrel blanks right now.
