    M&P 45 FS/compact frame swap

    A while ago I posted some pics of my Smith and Wesson M&P 45 full size and compacts with the upper and lowers switched. A few of you asked how it works and I really had not shot much that way...

    Well I just got back from the range and put a couple hundred rounds down range in the 4 different combinations.
    1-Factory Full size Upper and Lower
    2- Factory Compact Upper and Lower
    3- Factory FS upper with compact lower
    4- Factory compact upper with FS lower

    All combinations shoot well and I still preffer to keep em how the factory shipped it. The muzzle rise is a bit decreased with the longer slide/barrel on the shorter frame, but you would expect this. The longer sight picture of the FS slide is a nice thing for me beyond 10-15 yards. I like the way the FS frame and compact slide/barrel feel and it is very well balanced...THIS is the combo that I see S&W lists as a midsize, although I don't believe they sell it yet.

    The pic is my sloppy attempt at being accurate at about 10 yards. There are 200 holes in the target. I shot 50 in a quick aim type mode and you can see a few got away from me!

    \All the combos worked well and were fun to shoot. Second pic is the missmatch combo.

    The midsize is definately available - my local shop has two of them for sale. I'm thinking about picking up a compact at the gunshow this weekend.

    Glad to know, last I checked they were not available. It would have been a great excuse to buy 2 and make 4.

    My midsize is by far my favorite 45.

    Now that is interesting and shows how well engineered this series of pistols are. I get my compact back from Robar on Friday, two weeks earlier than I exspected. This will be my 3'rd M&P to get the NP3 Electroless Nickel finish.
