So i picked up a poly gun. M&p in 357 sig. Feels good in the hand. Had planned on getting a 9, but they only had one left. A bit of wear on the slide and low cap mags. Yikes. So i got one in 357 sig. Kind of always wanted one anyway. They even had 100 rounds of hst . I did not know that hst ammo was available in 357 sig. Its older stuff, not in the orange box, but itll work. We shall see how it runs.
Congrats and enjoy!

Congrats! I have a 9mm compact version and love it. Great shooting gun! Let us know how it shoots!
I have an M&P in 357 , I also picked up the 40 cal barrel from S&W and it has functioned flawlessly with either caliber. I have been trying to stock up on HST and so far I have not found any in the new boxes either. Enjoy the gun.
Another M&PC 9mm owner who loves the gun! Have had at least three other 9mm in recent years and this is the best one as far as I am concerned. The others were O.K., but this one is just too much! Enjoy!!

I have the exact same. Great quality gun.
Curious as what you think of shooting the 357 Sig round.

I've had mine for about 2 years, I carry 357Sig in the winter months here in NC and change out the barrel to 40S&W in the summer months. Works flawlessly in either caliber.
I have done a lot of them. Triggers, stippling and so on. Great gun. My other favorite poly gun. Love the Hi Powers for 9MM and also the new XD-M

I love my m&p9c can't even count how many thousands of rounds through it.every one flawless the m&P's are fantastic pistols for CC and range. I really can not say enough good about them. I really hope you enjoy yours as much as I have enjoyed mine.
Here is a video from a fellow who got one of these conversion barrels for his M&P, and he talks about how well it works. The same barrels that convert 40 S&W to 9mm will work to convert 357 Sig to 9mm also:
Congrats on your new addition...nice pistola!

I have a FS M&P 40 and a M&P 40c and I absolutely love them. No problems whatsoever!
I hear they are discontinuing the .357 M&P....
I for see a 9mm conversion barrel in my near future... Cheaper ammo and will be faster time on target for 3 Gun.... Of coures when I carry I will put the .40S&W barrel back in it...
OP the M&P was a very good choice.

Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.
If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
No, the nine i looked at was new, unfired, but had been handled and racked. A lot. Add in the low cap mags, and that is why i got the 357 SIG instead of the 9. The dealer had lots of 357s, 40s, and 45s, but only one 9. But i got the gun with three hi cap mags, tritium sights, and 100 rounds of HST for $525. A good day.
