I have been meaning to write up a quick review for a while now, so here it is. If you read my other thread I was extremely excited when this gun was announced. I complained to S&W the day the first M&P rolled off the line that they also needed a mid-sized compact model. I then complained to S&W at least annually. It took them 12 years but they finally got it done. The G19 has been Glock's best selling handing since the early 1990's for a reason. Because it is the smallest auto you can have that functions and performs like a full size duty gun. Subcompact versions of duty guns, especially with magazine extensions or sleeves, are much more prone to failure or other unanticipated issues. I have seen many people show up with a G26 or a M&P9C to a combat course only to seem with a G19 or full size M&P on their belt a few days later. I got mine a couple weeks ago and already have about 600 trouble-free rounds through it. I love this gun. The size is almost perfect. The length of the grip comes just to the bottom of my hand so I can change mags without the risk of the meat of my palm getting in the way. The gun is reasonably balanced but I think if the slide was about 1/4" shorter it would be better. The slide profile is slightly narrower which is nice but does result in some holster compatibility issues. The trigger is much better than the M1.0 but not as nice as Apex or S&W Performance Center. However it is an excellent compromise between the potentially liability (which I don't really buy into) of an aftermarket trigger and a heavy factory stock trigger. Grip texture is very nice and sticky. Should be excellent in wet or adverse environments. Accuracy is very good for a mid-sized dual role duty/concealment gun. S&W had some minor issues with early models of the original M&P when it came to accuracy, issues that were quickly resolved but not before they became the urband legends of keyboard commandos and forum operators everywhere. The M2.0 Compact shoots under 2" all day long with range ammo. Easily on par or slightly better than my P320C, G19, PPQ M2, FNS9C, XD9, etc. Of course it is not as as accurate as my Performance Center custom M&P with hand fitted Apex barrel. My new sights just arrived and will go on this weekend. I am not a fan of 3 dots and am quick to turn to the aftermarket when it comes to my irons. For the M2.0 Compact I picked up some Truglo Tritium Pros (not to be confused with their fiber optic sights). The Pros are like the Trijicon HD's without the orange or green ring. They do have black ringed tritium vials in the rear so I get the benefit of proper sight alignment in dark conditions but without 3 dots in brighter conditions. All said and done the M2.0 Compact is going to be a real winner for Smith & Wesson and they are already selling like hotcakes. My local dealer said he has a waiting list 10 people deep and probably won't be able to put one in the counter for another couple weeks. Make sense as this is the perfect size do all handgun with excellent build quality, incredible ergos and perfect reliability. I will be ordering a second one in November.
