    My new M&P9

    Not the best pics, but here's my M&P9. I got it NIB a couple of weeks ago and have nearly 600 rounds of the Todd Green 2000 round challenge through it so far. All mods (except night sight install) were done by me and include:

    Beavertail reduction (stupid thing poked me in the love handles)
    Stippling of backstrap, frontstrap, mag release, and index marks
    Apex Sear installation
    MA compliant trigger return spring
    Warren 2 dot night sights

    A real eye-catcher, very nice looking pistol.

    Wow. 'Very nice indeed!

    How did you do the stippling? It came out really well.

    Just a cheapo soldering iron I wasn't going to use on soldering. That and a lot of patience. Instead of pushing it straight in, I just drew little short lines with it.

    Very cool, I love M&P's! My grip is pretty rough as it is, doesn't that rub you raw IWB?

    Actually I noticed my grip seemed a little slick when I picked it up with wet hands (it was raining one of my range days), this seems to take care of that problem. I don't really notice it rubbing me IWB - but I also have worn undershirts since high school, so it may just be the extra layer of shirt..

    Yeah, that's what partly gave me the idea - I thought for $2 and some elbow grease I could probably have something comparable - though not nearly as good looking.

    Nice link to those inserts! Does the gun come with a large size, then if you want medium you must order it??

    Kevin, I really love the customized look of that pistol. Good colors.

    ps. what is an "MA compliant trigger return spring"?? what does it do for you?

    It actually comes with small, medium, and large. The nice thing about the inserts that C Hawk posted are that they pre-stippled...

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Hell that is half the beauty of an M&P, for example lets say that you had a couple boo boo's with you first time on the soldering gun. You just buy a couple grips and your are good as new. The longer I own this gun, I am starting to think it's a real gem.

    I dig the different colors!! By the way, I see you are on the M&P forum too! I just joined!
