The barrel & the grip are a little longer - think Glock 17 size. For me, that "little bit" is critical in concealed carry termswin said:Thanks for the pictures.
The m&p does not look that much bigger.
The grip looks longer. Is the barrel longer?
Not a dumb question at all! - I prefer the way the M&P handles & shoots better than any Glock: more mechanically accurate, better trigger, better pointer, less muzzle jump (for me, YMMV). Alas, I have "history" w/ the G19: one or another G19 has been my off & on (mostly on) primary concealed carry gun for the last 15 years or so. It was also my carry gun in uniform during another lifetime. In all that time & thousands of rounds, I can count the malfunctions on ONE HAND 8) (by the same token, my 9mm M&P currently has a malf count of zero). I've carried the M&P a bit in the 6 weeks I've owned it, but we're still in the T shirt season here in Texas and the M&P just wont' hide as easily. Gimme a sweater, vest or jacket & it'll be M&P 24/7. I wish the upcoming M&P Compact was G19 size rather than G26 size, as I think the proportions of the G19 are a perfect balance between concealability & shootability. Despite that, I'm pretty sure that The M&P Compact, if it retains the relative qualities of the full-size M&P, will become my every day "hot weather" (75-80% of the time here!) carry gun.win said:Ok probably a dumn question, but which one do you like better? and why?
Here ya go -David Smith said:[quote name='win']Can someone post a picture of a M&P and a G19. I just want to see what they look like together. Mainly size difference.
chocoboy said:.. In Ricky T's pic (Glock on M&P) the two pistols seems almost the same (barely 1/4" difference). But with Melbourneman4007's pic (Glock on M&P) the Glock seems to be a lot shorter than the M&P. Judging on the Glock's base pad, it appears the M&P is longer by almost an inch. Is it because on Ricky T's pic he used a 1st Gen Glock and on Melbourneman's pic 3rd gen was used? Is there a difference in the two Glocks? Can someone shed light on this? This is very important before i make my purchase coz i plan to use it for CCW and it's very hard for me to conceal anything larger than a G19/G23 (less than 1/2" longer would be the max diff) if ever.
Thanks so much in advance!
