S&W M&P9c 12+1 9mm 3.5" w/ Crimson Trace
by Peter S Date Added: Monday 21 May, 2012
I've owned my S&W M&P9C for a few months, and have put just around 500 rounds of a variety of ammunition without so much as a failure to feed, failure to fire, or failure to eject. It's been mechanically flawless. Right out of the box, the trigger, slide and all other mechanisms felt great - everything moved like glass on glass, without any catching or grinding. The pistol fits my large hands well, either with the smaller magazines or one of the extended magazines with X-grip adapter. Everything feels very good, and the laser activates whenever I handle it with a little firmness (no more than I'd normally hold it with). First trip to the range, I fired a whole bunch of Fiocchi 9mm ammo, and I didn't have to adjust anything. The Crimson Trace laser was spot on at 25 feet, as I wanted. It fed and fired all the FMJ and JHP I could feed it. 115gr ~ 145gr all fired well, with a noticeably less sharp recoil than many of my older polymer pistols. At 50' and 100' the laser is reasonably accurate, giving me nice tight groups. To test the sights, I removed the Crimson Trace backstrap (it's pretty easy once you learn the technique), and it was plenty accurate should I not have the laser. However, I'm glad I paid more for the laser. Acquiring a target is much quicker, and it's easier when firing with my weak hand, single handed, or from close to the body. The front rail is too short for most lights, but there are still a few brands that will work for it. Takedown is a breeze with, or without, the included tool. It's easy to clean, and seems to prefer very little lubrication. There are plenty of holster options, as well. I've since tried other brands of brass and steel cased ammo, without problems or reduced accuracy. My S&W M&P9C is the most accurate compact pistol I now own, and fits my hands better than any other semi-auto I've tried thus far. I'm looking forward to firing it more and more, and when I move to a CCW-friendly state, I intend to carry the M&P9C with the 12rd magazines.
