    I own an m&p and its gonna cost $100 (apex kit and RAM) to get a trigger close to as nice as the caracal. It's smoother, less gritty and has the tactile reset.

    I own a m&p and I think the trigger is just fine the way it is.

    Agreed. The M&P trigger is fine. The Caracal is great. I own both and won't sell either. But stating the M&P can be had for $452 vs $399 isn't really all there is to the story if a smooth trigger is really important to you. The major complaint I have read time and again about the M&P is the gritty trigger with no tactile or audible reset (a preference for many and a deal killer for some). The fix to which is the Apex kit and RAM. That equipment is an extra $100 not required on the caracal.

    The S&W is not a bad pistol.
    As for myself I will hold out for Arsenal 'Strike One' weapon. For my next piece I want something truly ugly.

    I don't care how smooth the trigger is. I won't send any of my money to the uae.

    I really want the sub compact model. Does it still not make enough points for import?
