Hello, I am looking for shooting and handleing impressions, & opinions on the M&P 45 from 1911 owners. Is it a smooth transisition from the 1911 to the M&P 45? Recoil on my steel 1911 is non-exsitant, trigger feel and trigger pull is probably much lighter and smoother on the 1911, but how is the trigger on the M&P 45? I heard it was a little longer and heavy on the M&P 45 as opposed to the M&P 9. I can not find any range (ranges in southwest FL are few and not very good) that has an M&P 45, so I will trust the information I get from MP-PIstol.Com, the information, so far, that I have recieved from you guys has been top notch. Thanks.
