Price point (MSRP versus actual retail)
I need it now! Availability: These can be elusive sometimes, but there are some available at most gun shops and on Gunbroker.com
+ The pistol runs reliably. I have shot several hundred rounds suppressed and unsuppressed and have had total reliability. + The ergonomics of the M&P series pistols are amazing and allow for great control of the firearm. + It is very corrosion resistant, like most modern polymer handguns. + The barrel is threaded which makes attaching a suppressor easy if you desire to do so. + The sights are high enough to clear most .22 suppressors.
- I don’t really like the ambidextrous thumb safety. - It comes with only 1 magazine.
Score: 9.0 Amazing!!!
