The MP 45 is very accurate and realiable however we had the gun out the other day during training and it rained. The MP 45 slide, sights, extractor and magazines rusted after on exposure to the elements. Up until that point the gun was absolutly flawless IMO. I hope Smith sees this and corrects the problem. If they are marketing this gun heavily to police and military rust is completely unacceptable especially after one exposure to the rain.
