S&W M&P9 Pro 17+1 9mm 4.25"
by Mike B Date Added: Friday 15 April, 2011
I've never said this about a gun, but I feel like I underpaid for the M&P 9 Pro after shooting it. 5 Stars for the M&P 9 Pro Series pistol. I am very impressed by the gun as an entire package. The M&P's backstrap/palm swell system maybe the best out there since it doesn't just add bulk to the back of the gun, it actually makes the grip larger or smaller depending on the insert you use. The addition of a beavertail in the frame as opposed to the Glock/XDm-style of frame is also very welcome. It allows you to get an incredibly high grip on the gun without worrying about getting your hand pinched or bit by the slide during recoil. The trigger has a little bit of take-up but breaks very crisp and clean; it is far more accurate that I will ever be and given some time a person should be able to get some incredible groups out of the gun. Recoil is very manageable due to the M&P's low bore and coupling that with the beavertail a shooter can really drive the gun. I shot my G17 and my new M&P 9 Pro side by side and I had better results with my new M&P over my 17 that I have had for some time.

Take down of the gun is a breeze; it comes apart just like the Glock/XDm-series of pistols but a multitool is included in the grip of the gun for those that do not want to pull the trigger to release the slide when cleaning. The take-down tool is my only complaint about the gun; it is located in the grip behind the mag well and is also the pin that retains the palm swell but the tool is incredibly tight and hard to remove. It is a minimal complaint; I removed mine twice to try different back straps and you can shoot the pistol without the tool in it to test the straps. Once you find the one that works for you, the tool goes back in and you never really need it out again. That is really the only complaint I have about the gun, everything else about it is wonderful.

I am very much a fan of Glock but the M&P really does take the polymer gun to another level. Mine went from box to range with just a patch down the barrel and a small amount of oil to lubricate. This will not be my last M&P, my only issue will be what M&P to get next. I would easily recommend this pistol to anyone looking for a good 9mm for carry or self-defense or any of the shooting sports. This is going to be my new daily carry piece along with my choice in 9mm for shooting IDPA.
