Well, I finally got this pistol up and running.

Considering that had the issue of the pistol slide locking for no apparent reason.

So I purchased a 9mm barrel, a full size magazine from another forum member, he provided a grip extension too.

I changed out the barrel to a 9mm, used a 9mm full size and fired 100 rounds of 9mm FMJ BALL, (PREFECTA). Not one jam, not one
slide lock, no issues, fed all 100 rounds with no issues.

Next step, get a carry holster/magazine carrier setup, and 3 M&P 9 compact magazines, (10 rounds for IDPA), once I get that going,
I will start running this gun at IDPA matches, if I really like the way it handles, I will purchase a new one in about 6 months for personal carry.

I will eventually have to have the slide stop repaired as it cracked on the Right side, which I don't understand how... I had to look back at some older photos to make sure it was not like initially.

Overall, I got the M&P 40C up and running as a M&P 9C. See if this will become a secondary concealment firearm.

so you bought a 40 and spent more money to make it a 9. ok . well glad it works for you . next time just buy a GLOCK
I own two Glocks, G26, personal carry firearm and G19, monthly, IPDA match firearm.

If you read my threads on this WHOLE M&P thing, i really only wanted to try an M&P pistol. I purchased the 40c for $340, (because it was used and only M&P compact model available at such a low price), barrel was about $70. A new M&P 9c was running about $441, so I ended up saving about $30 on this venture.

yeah, in hindsight, not a good idea. but most of us gun owners do off the wall purchases and then end up rethinking afterwards.

I was just very upset that I had the issue with 40S&W round in this 40S&W compact pistol.

In the end, if I really like the M&P, not necessarily over the Glock, but as a alternative carry pistol, I will purchase a new one for carry.
