    Hats Off Once Again To Business End Customs, A Great Job

    I just received my M&P back from Lou Biondo at Custom 1911-Glock- M&P's
    I talked to him a couple weeks ago about doing some work on it, and decided to let him have a go at it. He told me to give him two, maybe three weeks to get it done. He had it back in the mail to me six days after he received it. He did a beaver tail removal, carry trigger re-work and tree bark grip texturing for me, and I could not be more pleased. The trigger is nothing short of sweet. The gravel is entirely out of the pre-travel, and the break is a nice, crisp five-pound pleasure. Follow-through, reset, and subsequent shots have been greatly enhanced. The beaver tail is gone without a trace, never to poke me in the ribs again. The texturing is, well, hard to describe. It improves noticeably on S&W's already-outstanding ergonomics. If you want great, timely work done at a reasonable price, Lou is the guy. Yes, he is in Massachusetts. I quickly got over it.

    I looked at and considered the 9c, but opted for the full-sized. I don't think you can go wrong either way.

    I would recommend going full size with a chop.. You will get 2 guns in one plus the bonus of heavier slide for recoil management for better follow up shots and longer sight radius ..

    I have long admired Lou's work and think his grip texture looks better than most out there, if not best.

    Hey again, Lou. I went with the full-size and stayed with it because of how nicely it all fits in my hands. Concealment of a full-sized compared to a compact is a bit tougher, but do-able. I got the texturing for for the look rather than for any real practicality, and so was surprised at the genuine improvement it adds to my grip. I would strongly recommend all three modifications you did for mine to anyone with an M&P. How much different is your competition trigger from your carry version?

    No arguments from me. He does great work at a great price, and his turnaround times are awesome.

    Now these look good. Ive seen a lot of custom work on m&ps and this just wets my appetite to do some on my 9c. Good work.

    Yeah, here is the one which got this thread started:
    Chopped & Barked M&P
    Looking over it, I realized there is another comment to be made.

    Mike, no need of a grip chop like you had done to your G17?

    Competition trigger-Removes all pre-travel , smooths all the grit out and gives it and audible tactile reset . Trigger pull is right at 4lbs..
