Ricky T said:That's the one. I thought that the trigger was better than the standard model, the reset felt more positive and pull was slightly lighter. The rear sight kinda sits high above the slide, I guess to offset the high fiber optic front, or is it vice versa? I wonder if it even accept the aftermarket sights now available from folks such as Dan Burwell and Hilton Yam.

I hope the production model has the fine lines of the original M&P, I really like the scalloped rear over plain jane straight serrations.
Morphire said:Has anyone heard any specifics on the shipping date for this beauty? I've got a M&P9 standard on order planned for double duty (IDPA SSP and USPSA Production) replacing a Glock 34, but I'd far prefer a 5" gun to the commander length M&P9 standard available now.
I for one LOVE the look of the original slide though and would prefer to see it continue in the Pro series, but the reduced weight has a definite advantage for the 9mm ssp/production competitor. I to like the forward serrations for doing and under the slide press check (part of my loading sequence at every stage) but I'd like to see them mimic the scalloped serrations they use at the rear of the slide instead of the straight ones. There is a lot to be said for subtle beauty.
Slavex said:give it the cocking serrations like the new .45 M&P and I'd be even happier. Make it a full length dust cover, to match the slide, and it would be even sexier!
Morphire said:I'd love for S&W to be able to do the same and still keep the beautiful lines of the standard and compact pistol in tact. If not then I'll take a superior platform to a superior beauty.
Right now I'm still trying to get an idea when they are planning on introducing these pro series pistols. Trying to figure out if I wait for it or go ahead and make the plunge on the standard for now...
