S&W M&P9 17+1 9mm 4.25"
by Michael P Date Added: Saturday 08 March, 2008
let me preface this review in saying i own two springfield armory xd's and two glocks. i used to own a s&w sigma when they first came out but sold it because it was, well garbage (very poor imitation glock rip off). my personal opinion is that the m&p comes up short. i do not like the way it breaks down, you should not have to reach inside the weapon to push down some metal gizmo to get the thing to come apart. yes, i know it is a "safety issue", but come on. the other thing that annoys me is that the take down tool refuses to come out without serious motivation, like bleeding fingers motivation. i emailed smith and wesson and they said this was normal, come on, horrible engineering. my take down tool clearly is deformed yet they refuse to replace it. my first bad customer service experience with smith and wesson, and i own a lot of their firearms. the most discouraging thing for me was the trigger pull. it is not nearly as crisp and predictable as my xd's or glocks. much more creep and grit feeling. not too enjoyable to shoot. i thought it would get better, but 1000 rounds later and still waiting for improvement. i think its just the way their safety trigger is designed. my sigma was the same way. it does go bang however, every time i pull the trigger, no failures to report at all, it is cheaper than my xd's and glocks. fits my hand better than my glocks, though not the xd's, and is about the perfect size. it is also accurate enough. dont care for the interchangeable palm swells, though it is seamless and seemingly durable. i guess if you have really large or small hands it would be a bonus. so i guess its a lot better than the terrible sigma's, but look closely at springfield armorys terrific xd, or glock first then buy what you like. just be sure to pull the trigger a few times on all of them. i will keep this one, just wont shoot it very much. lastly, excellent service from buds, thanks.
