The M&P 45c came exactly as described and arrived at my FFL within 4 days. I shoot alot of Glocks and bought this to try because it is very friendly for left handed people. The gun has an ambi slide catch which I really appreciate, however it is to hard to use as a slide release so I still have to slingshot the slide. (and I am a large/tall person). I tried reversing the mag release and found the release was too far away from my thumb to use reliably. I use the large backstrap so you may have better luck with the medium or small one. The M&P shoots well. I put 200 rounds consisting of 230gr fmj, 230gr hp, and 230 grain fmj reloads. I had zero failures regardless of whether I slow fired ot did a mag dump. The gun was zeroed perfectly out of the box and hit where it was aimed. It is roughly the size of my G19 and has excellent ergonomics. For a 45acp it is a very soft shooter. The trigger is not very good, mine has a heavy gritty pull. This gun was test fired 07-2015 so it is very new stock, but according to the S&W forums the 45 compact still uses the old nasty triggers, the 9mm's get the new good ones. I will be putting an Apex trigger in it soon. If the trigger wasn't marginal I would have given it 5 stars.

Finally shot this M&P 45c,I was impressed in it's performance. No trouble at all. I personally don't know why people complain about the trigger, since it went "bang" every time. Very controllable, fits my hand great, and has a great caliber...45ACP!

Just received my new M&P45c from Bud's last night. It was shipped to my FFL guy in a timely fashion and I received constant updates via e-mail as to my order status. More than satisfied with the experience and will most likely use Bud's again.Now we're off to the range!

Arrived exactly as advertised, in excellent condition. Fired about 50 rounds the following day, no issues. Extremely pleased, my first shot (30') bulls eye, then a very tight group. I noticed the slide to frame fit is not as tight as my Glock, but obviously doesn't affect its performance. I'm a big guy with large hands, surprised I was comfortable using any of the backstraps, ended up using the middle one, finger to trigger seemed the best. I've read the trigger complaints on the M&Ps but I am satisfied with the stock trigger. Reset is not as pronounced as my glock but still OK. Not gritty as some have complained. Certainly no reason to change. Took turns firing it and my Glock 23 (40 cal), similar sized guns. The M&P is definitely my choice for target practice, less sting/recoil (as expected) than the 40, but I think a lot has to do with the grip angle and shape of the backstrap. Just fits my hand better, so its easier to shoot. Definitely a keeper.

Trigger leaves so much to be desired. out of the box was around 9.5 pounds. with a almost non existent noticeable reset.(no audible click or feeling in the trigger finger). I was really hoping that smith had reworked their triggers on the M&P line to match what they have done with the shield. Buds price was good enough that Ill be getting the apex kit soon to fix that problem. other than that the gun is typical S&W quality. Mags come tarnished and need a good polishing. Size of the 45C is almost exactly the same as the Glock 19 so carrying is no problem. being able to changing back straps is a very big plus for me , and on the M&P its very easy to do. I am however going to add a set of talons for better grip. The polymer can get slick on this gun when sweating. Gave this gun 4 stars instead of 3 because it has been reliable out of the box so far with 500 rounds down the pipe.
