a few questions about the S&W Military and Police .45acp compact....

I'm going to get a new(new in box) Smith and Wesson M&P .45acp compact soon & had a few gunsmith/after market concerns...
1) can the S&W Performance Center or a S&W trained armorer add a ambi safety to a compact M&P .45acp? This model doesn't have it & I think S&W no longer sells a ambi safety compact in .45acp.
2) do any places like Bar Sto or KKM make match grade stainless barrels for a compact .45acp pistol?
3) do full size M&P .45acp pistol magazines fit the smaller compact .45acp in emergencies?
It could be useful as a BUG or back-up on security details.

PM if you want.

Thanks,
ClydeFrog

Yes, they do.

Any qualified gunsmith can fit one if available.

That, I could not tell you, as nobody has ever inquired about one.

Storm-Lake.com S&W .45acp compact stainless barrels....

Thanks for the posts.
I checked around. Storm Lake makes stainless match grade custom barrels for the S&W Military and Police line(Full Size, Pro Series, Compact).
The .45acp caliber barrel is $165.00 USD.

I may ask David Bowie(the cop & gunsmith, www.BowieTacticalConcepts.com ) not the rock legend.
He or his staff may do safety work on M&Ps. He's widely known for other Military and Police model custom work.
