M&P .45

Pick-up my M&P .45 today and took that opportunity to test drive it with some FMJ 230gr ball ammo. The pistol felt a bit long fore and aft with the small grip installed and I couldn't feel the sides against my hands, however the medium grip felt more engaging and controllable when firing the gun. I would describe the recoil impulse and muzzle rise comparable to a steel framed combat 1911 commander. The gun feels well balanced in the hand and is not uncontrollable during rapid fire strings. This will be a better pistol once you get a trigger job done and a new rear sight.

I know it doesn't really matter functionally but I do not like how the front of the frame drops away from the slide so much. It is much more pronounced on the .45 than on the 9/40. I played with one at Adco today.

If you look closely at the 45, the frame does not drop away from the slide. The bottom of the slide is actually beveled upward which causes the optical illusion of the dust cover sagging down.

Ambis only.



Whether it is the slide being sloped or the shape of the frames or a combination of both, to me it is not visible pleasing. That being said, my HKs were not visibly pleasing either but they worked 100% of the time which is always more important than looks.
