I'm a DIE-HARD Glocker... But I'm getting ready to replace my G27 CCW with my new M&P 40c!!! It's SCARY GOOD!! -Recoils like a 9mm -Smallest Grip Insert really gets you under the bore -No malfunctions thru the 1st 100 rounds -Dead On @ 25yds I shot with a good friend who's retired military & now works as a JUCO security guard. We shot his G27 head 2 head with my M&p 40c, and he feels the M&P's shootabillty wins HANDS DOWN PERIOD. The only issue I had was with some blazer brass 165 gr. the recoil spring felt kinda weird as if it wanted to bind up for a couple of shots. I stopped, disassembled, lightly greased and went back to work. Overall I shot 100 rounds today. Not an FTE, FTF, FRTB whatsoever.... 100 more test rounds down the pipe and a few JHP's and she's my new CCW .40... Can't say I've been more impressed with a recent gun purchase out of the box! It also does not have the "Stainless" stamped on the slide, nor "Caution Capable of Firing Without Magazine" sticker on the slide. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
