How to identify new and improved M&P .40

    How can I be sure if I order an M&P .40 that I am getting the one with the new and improved "Shield" trigger. I have been to several gun stores; big ones and LGS. There seems to be some confusion as to how to identify the newer models. I was at my LGS today, and the owner called one of his distributors and the guy could not tell him if the ones they are receiving from S&W have the new trigger or not.

    Many of the shops I have visited don't have any M&P .40s in stock for me to try the trigger. Academy does but of course they have trigger locks installed.

    Is there a completely different SKU or just a letter or number designation at the end of the original SKU? Also, when will the full size M&P .45 get the shield trigger?

    Good question, but for a definitive answer you might want to go to S&W Forum as they are up on the details more so than any other source. S&W has also supposedly worked out the accuracy issues with their full size M&Ps but you'd need expert advice on how to identify them as it's been a recent development. ;)
