Got an M&P9 today and thought I would post some initial impressions. Product number is 209201, mag disconnect, no lock. Serial number is MPJ0XXX. Cost was $399.99 on sale at Fin Feather & Fur in Ashland Ohio. I put 200 rounds through it as soon as I got it out of the box,cleaned and lubed. I had no failures of any kind. Tried all 3 of the grips and found the large works best for me. I had a tendency to shoot left with the smaller two. Trigger breaks at 6lb by my RCBS trigger scale. The gun is new to me, but I could still get 1.5" groups at 25 feet with jhp and fmj 115gr reloads. After a few hundred more rounds, I'm sure I can tighten that up a bit. I also own a Sigma 9GVE in 9mm. Honestly, outside of the heavier trigger pull with the Sigma, I can't tell a whole lot of difference between the two as far as preformance and dependablility goes. I really like both pistols and plan to keep them both. They look very much alike stripped down except the trigger mechanics are different on the M&P. The options on the M&P are nice, but once it is set up the way I like it, I doubt I will be changing it again. I think I got a great pistol for the price, and I am glad I bought it. The trigger seems to be smoothing up already, and I'm sure after a couple thousand rounds, I will like it even more.
