I know the M&P .45 isn't even out yet, but have there been any rumors about a .45 compact sometime in the future?

Rumor hell...... if they build it I will buy one. I LIKE .45's. The only reason I bought

the 9mm 9c is that was the only caliber I could find the M+P compact in around here.



.45ACP 10 round compact...... Chalk me up for '1' vote please.

The compact M&P is only available in 9mm right now. The 40 should be out very soon.



It is doubtful that a M&P45 compact will hold 10 rounds since the yet to be released full size M&P45 holds 10.

I heard that they are announcing the .45 Full size in January at the SHOT Show, but after all I have read and heard, the compact is only 9mm, .40, and .357.



Please correct me if I am wrong.

I had just about figured a way to afford a .45 full size when it comes out.

Now there is rumor of a possible .45 COMPACT??



Double crud!

The fullsize .45 has not made it to store shelves yet. Don't be in any hurry to get a compact .45. :wink:

Well honestly, in order to do this right - (which in my opinion they didn't) they should have just come out with the full line B A N G right off the bat ...



This bull$hit with a couple of pistols here and there, and no stock in this location, but stock in that location is nothing short of despicable. Kind of reminds me of the PlayStation III and the Cabbage Patch Dolls - LOL ... Maybe that's their intent... :roll:

I don't think so. It's the same way any new guns are being introduced, regardless of brand. From a manufacturing standpoint, they can only make so many guns in a day. They make what they can, then disperse them the best they know how. It doesn't make financial sense to keep thousands of guns in the warehouse while you make more. Those new guns can be in the hands of customers. If those customers are happy, word of mouth will make more people want one. So it is best to ship out what you have.



I think the first batch of fullsize .45s will go to police and military trials. The compact .40 just hit store shelves. I have yet to see one around here. But I'm sure they will show up before long. I have yet to see a fullsize or compact 357Sig. I don't know when they will be released.



There have been talks of a compact .45, but we haven't even seen a prototype yet. The compact .45 will be the most difficult pistol in the M&P series to design reliably. I don't know if S&W has started working on the design or not. It will take a while to get the design perfected; then it will take a while to get them manufactured and in customers hands.

Be patient my friend.

I will talk to my distributor Monday who is connected at the hip with S&W about what he knows about the .45 and .357 M&P's and post back here ...
