M&P... The Pros Know
I just had to do it... I added a new M&P 40 Pro Series to my M&P stable, and all I can say is Wow!
My new M&P was purchased from a local gun dealer at a buy me now price of $550. I took it to the range after work, and found that it shoots quite a bit better than my older M&P 40 full-size. The group below shows 15 rounds in a less than 2" target area at 20-yards, and that was in sub freezing temps while wearing gloves.
Although the trigger is considerably better than that found on a standard M&P, I will still be upgrading it with an Apex Tactical Hard Sear. I have grown accustomed to the Apex enhanced trigger feel, and I just don't want to have different triggers on my M&P's.
If you haven't checked out an M&P Pro Series before, I would HIGHLY recommend that you take one for a spin... It's not your father's M&P.
M&P 40 Pro Series Specs:
- Caliber: .40 S&W
- Capacity: 15+1 Rounds
- Barrel: 4.25" Match Grade
- Sights: Low Profile Tritium Night Sight
- Trigger Pull: 4 to 5.5 lbs.
- Finish: Black Melonite on Stainless
- Assembly: S&W Performance Center Division
My father literally has an M&P; what's the difference between a normal M&P and the Pro Series?
At any rate that is one nice looking pistol!
You pulled one!:smile:
Just kidding. Nice piece of new heat!
The M&P Pro Series differ from the standard M&P's in the following ways...

I own 5 M&P's and the Pro versions really do feel and shoot better than the standard versions.
My M&P Stable:
M&P9 Pro Series (5")
M&P40 Pro Series (4.25")
That was nice! Congrats and enjoy!
I got one a dem :smile:
It's a sweet pistol. After getting it I traded in my Stoeger Cougar .40 on the M&P9c. I knew I wouldn't be carrying or shooting that Stoeger again after getting that S&W Pro Series.
Here is what professional shooting trainer Todd Green did a couple of years ago with his full size M&P at 25 yards using Federal's 124 gr 9mm +P HST law enforcement load:
for more details.
Have been considering the Apex Tactical Hard Sear for my M&P. How much do they cost?
Todd Green is my hero. He does a trick for his students where he hits steel plate targets at 75-yards... With a Ruger LCP!

Now I have a K-Tec P11, you want to talk about an interesting trigger.?

I've had an M&P 9 for about two years now. It's a very fine handgun by any measure.
It's funny that you guys bring up the trigger because I was just thinking this to myself yesterday. I have three M&P's in my stable and one of them has the Apex and the other two do not. Don't get me wrong the Apex makes it lighter, but I have to say the other factory triggers are pretty nice after break in.
I really like these firearms, they are just hard to beat.
