Don't know why, of all pistols the MILITARY AND POLICE, S&W did not make a lanyard loop, but I think this would be a great accessory. Only place I could see putting one would be in a replacement grip tool by extending the plastic and making a hole. Thoughts?

maybe this is a dumb question but why would a person want to put a lanyard loop on a gun???? I find it unlikely that you would be attaching a gun to a string around your neck or your keychain or something.


Retention reasons. The lanyards are most useful for soldiers and like types who do a lot of crawling, running, and bouncing around in brush that could pull a pistol from its holster. Think about being a 11 bang bang who is doing a mission and his pistol gets pulled from its holster and goes clanking down the side of a mountain in Afghanistan. It'd be an issue...

LOL. Not for that purpose. Should one take the gun fishing or hunting or in combat, and the gun falls out, the strap keeps it from getting lost.



They DO have neck lanyard holsters for the KelTec P3AT also.

well they have it on the .45 prototypes, perhaps it will be available as a part.


It would be nice and since it's an Military & Police model it would make sense. I'm waiting for a Dawson Ice magwell as well.
Also waiting for some good sights, magwell, stainless mags and solid pins.

Well dan's sights are nice, but the proper width versions aren't out yet. Dawson has sights, 10-8 has sights, warren has sights now too. Stainless mags would be nice, but i doubt we'll be seeing them anytime soon, if ever. Solid pins would probably be bad. The roll pins in theory keep tension on where they mate up to the frame, solid pins would have to either flext the frame hole, or would probably just fall out.

Does anyone know if the lanyard/take-down tool on the M&P 45 would fit into the original M&P 40’s or 9’s?



If so, does anyone know where one might get one?



If it's that easy, this would solve the problem. Simply exchange the take down tool for the lanyard option as needed or wanted.

Yes, the take down tool is interchangeable between models. The .45's tool is a little longer because the baseplate of the magazine is a little thicker. I kinda like the .45 tool in the 9's gripframe.
