S&W M&P .45 - is a "Commander" coming?

This is a discussion on S&W M&P .45 - is a "Commander" coming? within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; I note that the new M&P .45 is fitted with a 5-inch barrel. Is a shorter model (4.25" barrel) coming?...

    The website shows a 4.5" barrel so it kind of is Commander sized. I would think a true compact more likely.

    Yep ^^

    All of the 'fullsize' M&P variants are Commander format while the 'compact' variants are effectively Defender sized.
    There is no M&P that is fullsize/Government.

    There is NO design currently underway for a smaller .45 M&P.

    They (S&W) indicated that it is likely to be developed at "some time in the future", however. Thus, nothing on the horizon for probably a year or more.

    A group of us (42 from Northeastshooters.com) took a factory tour of S&W ~1 month ago and that was what we were told when we asked. We also got to see everything they manufactured, so no there were no compact .45 M&Ps in the plant! [I'd be interested in one too.]
