Ordered a new backstrap last week since I'm too lazy to stipple mine.

I swapped out backstraps today with the Cane & Derby one I bought last week. Went out to the range and put 200 rounds through. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the purchase. While it's only simple stippling, I can really get a good grip now which doesn't slip over time. Would I recommend it to others? Probably not...since it was $32 shipped for a M&P backstrap which was stippled. You guys could all do the same at home, and I could have done the same as well since I have an adjustable temp soldering iron...but I'm too lazy. Some pics below, enjoy!

After 1500 rounds, had my first "problem" with my 9Pro. Front fiber sight has managed to wiggle itself to the left, and that's the excuse I need to replace the sights!

I went out and bought a new M&P 45 yesterday, was out looking for a Glock 21 which was no where to be found and ended up having someone talk me into the M&P. Since then Ive been reading up on them and I like what Im hearing and am very excited to shoot it.

Today I mentioned to a friend of mine that I picked up an M&P and he started telling me how I need to use premium ammo only, how they need to be cleaned quite often and are prone to problems. This is all the exact opposite of what Ive been reading on here. From what others here are saying you can run 1000 rounds of ****ty ammo (if you choose) without cleaning and it will shoot without any problems. Am I missing something in my research or does my friend just not know what he is talking about (wouldnt be the first time.)

He doesn't know what he is talking about...

An extreme example here:
http://pistol-training.com/archives/1146
Test #1: Without any cleaning or lubrication, shoot five 5-round groups at 25yd from the bench for accuracy. Almost 9,500 rounds had been through the gun since the last cleaning.

I'm going to perform the 2,000 round challenge on my FS9 and detail the results (may take awhile), I was about 600 rounds in when I cleaned it without thinking last time.

There's a few M&P's that completed it already.
http://pistol-forum.com/showthread.p...ound-Challenge

* Shooter must use a single pistol (distinct brand, model, caliber, serial number) for the entire 2,000 rounds. Pistol should be properly cleaned and lubricated before the test begins. Any brand pistol, stock or modified (please list all modifications), any caliber.
* Shooter can take as long as necessary (days, weeks, months) to fire 2,000 rounds through the pistol.
* The pistol cannot be cleaned, lubricated, or maintained in any way during the entire 2,000 round test period.
* Shooter can use any type of ammunition: factory, remanufactured, or hand loaded. Shooter can use as many different brands, styles, bullet weights, etc. as necessary as long as all ammunition meets the SAAMI specifications for the caliber of the gun.
* Shooter must report ALL stoppages, malfunctions, and/or parts breakages that occur during the 2,000 round test regardless of cause. This includes any such problems that are deemed "shooter-induced" or "ammunition-induced."
* If a stoppage, malfunction, or breakage may be ammunition-induced, the shooter can follow this procedure (but must still report the actual results with the original test pistol): if the round still has a bullet, powder, and undetonated primer the shooter can attempt to fire the round in a freshly lubricated and cleaned pistol of different brand than the test gun. If the round fails to fire in this second pistol which is clean, lubricated, and not of the same brand, then although the original stoppage or malfunction must be reported it will not count against achieving the "2,000 Round Challenge" success criteria.
DEFINITIONS
Stoppage: Any failure of the pistol to go through its entire cycle of operation. This could include a failure to feed, fire, extract, or eject. A problem qualifies as a Stoppage if and only if the shooter is capable of fixing the problem without the use of any tools, without disassembling the gun in any way (magazine can be removed), and the pistol is in firing condition in less than 30 seconds. For example, a stovepipe or failure of the slide to go fully into battery would be Stoppages. Added 21-Jan-08: Failure to lock back after the last round in a magazine is fired, even if the shooter believes it was caused by an improper grip, is considered a stoppage.
Malfunction: Any failure of the pistol to go through its entire cycle of operation and which requires the use of tools, disassembly of any part of the pistol, and/or takes more than 30 seconds to resolve, but does not require any parts replacement. For example, a dislodged spring or a front sight that falls off the gun would be Malfunctions.
Breakage: Any failure of the pistol to go through its entire cycle of operation and which requires parts replacement (springs, pins, locking block, anything) to resolve. For example, a broken spring or chipped extractor would be Breakages.
A pistol must fire 2,000 consecutive rounds without any cleaning or maintenance or additional lubrication without any stoppages, malfunctions or breakages to qualify as having met the "2,000 Round Challenge."

I would say the latter is true... I have an M&P .45 and have shot a few hundred reloads and various factory ammo - not one problem. I clean all my guns after every shoot so I can't comment for certain on the "clean quite often" assertion - but I find it hard to believe it is any more problematic than any other pistol and would bet that it can go many hundreds (or thousands?) without a hiccup.

My Pro is done



AAC TiRANT
Storm Lake barrel
Apex DCAEK
Streamlight TLR1

Need to see if the 147gr +p HST stays subsonic though it's listed with a muzzle velocity of 1050fps out of a 4" barrel.

Nice! Where are you located at? I'd be curious to see how your G&R backstrap compares to the one I got from Cane & Derby

The problem with the Pro is ammo that was supposed to be subsonic, the WWB and BVAC, went supersonic due to the longer barrel

does anyone know if the compact 9mm and the full size 9mm have the same grip width using the small backstrap? is their only difference the length? every time i hold a full size 9mm at gun stores it doesn't fit my hand that well

my compact with the small backstrap feels good though. all the full size handguns they have on display have the medium backstrap so i'm not sure how the full size feels with the small backstrap.

being one of a MPFxxx owners, how accurate are your M&P's?

shooting at 15 yards mine groups about 6-8 inchs. When I shot my new RIA 1911 my groups shrank to about 3-4 inches. Is it just the nature of plastic pistols?

I can do a 3-5" group at 25 yards/75 feet standing unsupported but I think I'm capable of better if I slow down.
