    I have an M&P45 that sports an Apex DCAEK with an old style slide stop (no detent). This gives the trigger no tactile reset. I have an M&P40 with the new slide stop that provides a very distinct and tactile reset. I was told that the M&P45 and M&P40 do not share the same slide stop and S&W hasn't made a new slide stop for the 45. I've looked at the schematics and it appears that all M&P models use the same part number for the slide stop. Is this correct?

    I'm not a certified M&P armorer, but I can tell you for a fact that I ordered two of the newest style slide stop levers earlier this year. I installed one into a M&P9L and the other into a M&P45. They are the exact same part.

    Yes they are the same part and will interchange between all the M&P series pistols.

    Thanks, that's what I thought. Looks like I can order one now.

    The latest revised slidestop assembly, with the heavier welded tabs and the yellow wire spring, became the standard assembly for the regular (double column) M&P pistol line about a year or more ago.
