Before going into any details - I'm going to simply say; I LOVE THIS PISTOL!!!

I purchased this M&P June of last year, a month after buying an HK USPc .40 from Hinterland (review under that product). Have out several hundred rounds through it (factory and reloads) - The M&P is primarily home defense (which is why I got the .45).

I researched all over the Internet and handled the weapon at local dealers - then rented one at local firing range... I ordered it the very next day. Initially I was interested in the .40, it felt perfect in my hand - but having just bought the USP (mentioned above), and considering the primary use is home defense I decided on .45 - As outlined in my review of the USP, instead of rehashing what has been said all over the internet about this pistol, I will simply mention my like and dislikes…

For reference I own; HK USPc .40, Sig SP2009 9mm, Taurus 24/7 Pro DS .40 and of course this S&W M&P .45

Pros:
Ergonomics; this is one of the best fitting pistols I have ever held. The weight and overall feel is just about perfect – I say “just about” only because it’s the .45 (slightly bigger than the frame on the .40/9mm which is truly a perfect fit)… but for a .45 it is extremely comfortable and well balanced.

Adjustable backstraps; this is becoming more common among current model handguns and rightly so – the versatility makes it an option for nearly anyone… I have average size hands and use the small backstrap (which makes the pistol nearly the size of the .40 with med backstrap, but still a little bigger). The texture of the grips is perfect for my taste – not overly coarse, but enough to provide confident assured handling of the weapon

Size; this is not necessarily a behemoth but certainly a beast of a weapon when looked upon and held! Managing a 10 round capacity of .45 ammo and still being ergonomically sound is quite aw feat – S&W did it!

Mag release; the M&P has the best mag release of any pistol I own or have handled. Perfect location, shape, style and texture… it’s button style that is slightly angled and textured the same as grip – it’s positioned where it’s easily accessed but does not get in the way of handling the pistol. Probably the most intuitive design possible.

Manual Safety; Just having it is a pro for me… I’m a fan of condition 1, so any pistol that has a manual safety is good (but there are cons to this one – read below).

Scalloped slide; this is kinda unique – to me it’s more cool looking than functional… sure, it provides nice slip resistance, but I’ve never had issue racking the slide of any style pistol… I do like the looks of the scallop, so it’s a pro.

Accuracy; considering it’s a full size .45, the accuracy should be good… and it is! At the range the furthest I ever practice is 30yrds… at close range (15-20) this pistol is spot on (same hole twice is not uncommon) – even at farther distance it’s very accurate (3” groupings or less) *as stated in USP review I do not profess to be an expert marksman, so others may have even better results.

I could go on about other small details about this pistol that are pro – but you’d get bored reading… So I’ll just say there is a lot to like about it.

Cons:
As much as I love it – there are a few things that aren’t perfect…

Manual Safety; even though the fact that it’s there is a pro – this is the only area of the pistol that I have a complaint about. First of all, I don’t like ambidextrous controls (mag release or safety) – I understand there are benefits (to some) for this style, and they are obvious… but I prefer non-ambi. Additionally, the lever itself is the only thing on this pistol that feels cheap, real cheap – so much so, that I always fear of it breaking… I can happily say however, that I’ve manipulated the safety hundreds of times while shooting and holster draw practicing and it has held up fine… so even though it looks and feels flimsy, apparently it’s solid.

Sights; I read this complaint a few times when researching – but didn’t think it would be this bad… the front sight became useless after first time at the range. About 150 rounds and the thing is faded to the point that you can’t even rely on the white dot. I though it was just fouling that I could clean off – but it’s not, the paint seems to have worn off some. But of course this can be remedied several ways; re-paint, aftermarket sights, rely on laser (even though not the best option).

Nothing else really comes to mind on the cons… and none of these issues are enough for me to say it’s something to consider – I’d recommend this pistol as one of my favorites (in fact, if I had to chose, I’d probably consider the M&P above others I own and have shot).

As stated in other reviews – Hinterland pricing was as good and in most cases better than anywhere else I looked. It was a good purchase for sure!
