Looks interesting, but I see one thing that I don't like already... If you look carefully at the trigger, you'll notice that it has a sigma style trigger. I don't like the feel of those but they work for others.....

It looks like the Sigma trigger, but it doesn't feel like a Sigma trigger. Previous thread here. (http://www.thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=177327) This gun is the cover story of the premier issue of American Cop, which is just out this month. However, it is subscription only.

Opinions of the gun aside, I think its heresy to call something like that the M&P. That's like calling a gun lock the "Triple Lock" just plain wrong. A M&P should be a wheelgun. other than that it looks OK if you like that polymer gun kinda thing.

You're a man after my own heart. I truly wish S&W hadn't named that thing after the venerable M&P/M10. M&P is a name that should have been retired with honor, rather than being used as a marketing gimmick.
