    M&P 45 or 45c questions

    I have been looking at the M&P 45 pistols, I would conceal carry some, so size matters for concealment.

    #1. How many rounds does the 45c hold (8 +1, or just 8 total).
    #2. Accuracy between the two 45 and 45c?
    #3. Is the trigger the same on both? (I do carry so I do not alter the triggers, so the trigger must remain stock.)
    #4. Size the 45c seems to be between a Glock compact and sub-compact?

    As good as the shooter.
    Same stock trigger.
    45c like Glock compact

    Thanks slimjim, on the S&W website it says 8, but nothing about +1

    The trigger on all M&Ps are not so good, stock. A lot of people add the Apex sears and have good results.

    I've been thinking about sending my M&P 45 out to Burwell's for there trigger work.

    I love my 45c and so does anybody that's ever handled or shot one. Perfect fit in my hands, and its very accurate. My first shots with the gun where all on a post it size target at 25 yards
    After several hundred rounds, my confidence in the 45c was so high it immediately replaced my 40c on my hip.
    And that's even before getting any decent self defense ammo and completely dirty. Just 8 + 1 and a full mag of fmj.

    Apex parts also on the way, with results to follow!
    You won't b disappointed.

    Don't discount the M&P "midsize". 4in. barrel, same capacity.

    I haven't shot the service size .45 but I can't imagine there would be much difference in accuracy between the service size and the .45c (of which I have on my hip right now). I have been more then happy with the accuracy of the 4 inch barrel.

    The trigger is the same. It's not HORRIBLE but also not what I would call "good" either. With some dry fire it will smooth out quite a bit but it's still not what i think stock trigger should be.

    I LOVE the size. The handle is a bit shorter then a Glock compact and the gun conceals EXTREMELY well for me. The slightly shortened handle makes a huge difference to me for concealment. The handle is shorter then a G19 but longer then a G26.
