I shot a friend's Glock 26 the other day and was impressed with its accuracy, low recoil, and terrific shootability - I was impressed, as I don't usually like Glocks that much (I'm a CZ fan). I'm trying to choose between the G26 and the new S&W M&P compact in 9mm for a CCW gun, but I've heard of magazine release problems with the M&Pc. I like the better M&P ergonomics and buying an American product, but the G26 was impressive. Any input appreciated. Thanks!

There are few comparison threads here and on other boards. I havnt shot a Glock 26 but would really like to to see for myself as well. I love my 40c. Its shoots well and handles great. I would say that the consensus of those comparison threads is pretty well split and it all comes down to personal preference. Try them both and then decide for yourself.

Hi Kent,

Please take a look at this link, http://mp-pistol.com/boards/viewtopic.php?...&highlight= . I am not much of a review writer but this was my attempt. I traded my G27 in one the M&P .40c and I have not regretted it at all. I am much more accurate with the M&P and it does not feel like a brick in my hand. I had owned the G27 for at least 2 yrs before I traded it.

Thanks Ron, nice review and great photos. The local gun range has M&Ps for rent, so I'll see if they also rent the M&P compact. Sounds worthwhile!



Best regards,

Kent

When I was buying my 9mm, it was between the XD, Glock 26, and M&P. The XD was decent, but it just felt kind of cheap in my hands. The Glock 26 was far too small; I hate not having all fingers on the grip of the firearm while shooting. The M&P has the extension mag, which fits my hand perfectly. Shot all three, and it wasn't that the XD or 26 were bad per se, but it was like S&W purposely found the flaws in those guns (chunky slide, iffy trigger, etc.) and made the M&P to correct those mistakes.



I own the 9c now, and love it. Too bad I can't carry. Stupid Wisconsin.

At my gun shop, they are big with Glocks and M&P and at the moment its 2v1 infavor of the M&Pc, i was just in the other day looking for a compact. I havent shot either but i trust their judgement. Niether is bad though.
