I've read on the M&P Forums, that most of the holsters are interchangeable with little or no adjustment.

OP what M&P's do you have? full size 9? mid-size "compact" 45?
My Blackhawk Serpa holster for my M&P40 full size also holds a Glock 23 2nd Generation.

Actually the 45 frame is a little wider,I just measured and it's only about .010 thicker which isn't much,and a leather holster should stretch enough to accomodate,the barrel length is different,a FS M&P 9/40 should fit a 45 compact

I have a full size .45 and a full size 9mm. The full size .45 has a bit longer barrel and slide than the full size 9mm, so if the holster is 'trimmed' exactly to the 9mm muzzle length, the .45 will stick out a bit.
