Nice price. I really need to get my FFL. I'm tired of getting ripped off in So Cal.

I sold my PX4 compact for an M&P 9 compact, as the PX4 kinda sucked as a carry gun in comparison...

This deal is on the full size though... they're soft shooting thanks to the rotating barrel, but also makes them a little pickier on using weak ammo (stovepipes and other such issues as some of the recoil that'd normally cycle the gun is eaten by the barrel rotation- (limp wristing can be a bigger problem due to this as well).


I don't know that you'd really get anything out of this gun if you already have a full sized M&P.... if I were wanting a second full sized 9 I'd probably look at either the latest wunder-9, the Sig 320.... or more likely a nice metal duty gun like a Beretta 92 or a Sig 226 (or maybe a CZ75)

i only have a full size M&P 40 and 22...not a 9.

i also dont comprehend half of what you said...not b/c of anything you said wrong, but b/c I just don't know that much about those topics

heh....ok, well, the PX4 (the full size and compact, but not the subcompact) are a bit different because they use a rotating barrel system that reduces felt recoil.

This downside is that recoil is what cycles the gun/slide causing the empty shell to eject, the new one to load, etc....

With reasonably powerful ammo and a firm grip on the gun that's not a problem- but with low-power cheap ammo and/or a weaker grip it can cause issues


As far as the other guns I mentioned- well, I think you know what you'd be getting with a full size M&P in 9... the Sig 320 is the new polymer/modular Sig pistol that the Army just selected as its new sidearm, and it's very nice... plus the fire control unit it the part that is the "gun" legally with that gun- so you can buy inexpensive grip frames from Sig of different sizes and move the fire group between them freely.

The other ones I mention are some of the better metal full sized 9s instead of plastic ones in case you wanted something a bit different

I have the compact 9 and love it. No problems with ammo so far after 600 rounds or so. Beautiful gun and shoots smooth!
