Not a fan of M&P. I have one and it does not work as intended. Sig XTen is a dream to shoot, and if it keeps up its reliability record, it will replace my G20
Picking up the 4.6” version tomorrow. Paid $598 OTD after taxes via the LE/Military program from the LGS.
Just because, is all the reason I've ever needed to buy a gun. The more 10mm's the merrier.
Because someone has to give the rest of us an informed opinion on how they all compare and contrast. If not you, then who?
How much they going for now? Been hearing decent feedback on the Sig.
Because you like 10mms and you know you want the Smith. You need the Smith. I like mine better than either of my G20s but then again I have little girly hands. And I'm not bashing Glocks because I'm wearing one right now but the Smith just fits my hand better.
Did take a couple of pics for comparison.
Accuracy wasn’t bad but the sights are different for me so I need to get used to them. Seriously considering a red dot for this if I can’t get used to the taller sights.
Noticed some tooling marks on the slide that looks odd. Doesn’t seem to affect anything.
Still more shooting to do yet to get a good feel for the gun but so far I’m liking it.
See what I did there?
I did pass on a 10MM Ruger GP100 revolver a couple of years ago and am kicking myself in the backside for doing so…
I have the M&P 10mm and I really like it!! Out of the box the trigger was really crunchy. 500 rounds later it shoots amazing.
As a reloader, this pistol does not eject the brass into another zip-code!!
* The Compact with a 4" barrel split the difference for me in size between the G20 and G29.
* The Smith has a 4 lb trigger vs a 6 lb trigger on the Glocks. I shoot it better.
* The Smith is set up for optics. I may never use them, but if I choose to do so I'm ready. The taller sights are meant to co-witness optics. I find them easier to use than Glock.
* I wanted a manual safety, but not a 1911. The Smith is the only option. I use my 10mm as my hiking/camping pistol in bear country. I have no issues with a gun having no safety as long as it is in a secure holster until needed. But I wouldn't keep a round chambered with my Glocks while in my sleeping bag at night. I will with the Smith.
The Glocks have proven reliable and durable. That is an unknown at this time with the Smith. I guess I'll just have to wait and see. But so far, so good.
