Smith and Wesson 40 is a good pistol and has had a lot of applications. In 2010, a shipment of one hundred thousand guns had gone missing to found by the end of 2009.

Barrel

Fit and finish leaves little to object to, from the palmswell grip-to-frame fit, to both exposed and internal components. Ergonomics, as mentioned, are top shelf, as good or better than anything else available on the market. The barrel and slide are stainless steel, coated with a “Melonite” nitriding finish, which reduces glare and improves corrosion resistance. Weighing in at around 24 ounces, it measures 1.2” wide, 5.5” tall and 7.5” long with a 4.25” barrel. The M&P just points nice. It aims in naturally and the ergonomics make it feel comfortable and un-stressed. The good angle and long beaver tail make the grip feel natural and secure. It’s a fan favorite in the Aegis Academy Familiarization course. Additionally between the .40, .45 and 9mm models that several Aegis instructors use, little difference in felt recoil. It has all the expected features of a striker-fired gun, from a trigger safety, internal safety block as well as pre cocking the striker to 98% after each shot. S&W classifies it as “striker fired double action only” It has a loaded chamber indicator as well. ( The M&P M2.0 pistol, the newest innovation to the respected M&P polymer pistol line. Designed for personal, sporting, and professional use, the M&P M2.0 delivers an entirely new platform, introducing innovative features in nearly every aspect of the pistol, including trigger, grip, frame, and finish. Highlights of the M&P M2.0 pistol include an extended stainless-steel chassis and a low barrel bore axis for reduced muzzle rise and faster aim recovery. The M&P M2.0 pistol further improves performance with a fine-tuned, crisper trigger, lighter pull and a tactile and audible reset. The pistol includes an aggressively-textured grip and four interchangeable palmswell inserts for optimal hand-fit and trigger reach. Includes two magazines, a limited lifetime warranty and a lifetime service policy. (Source:safarioutdoor.co.za))

Grip

)In short, of the top three polymer framed guns sold in the USA, this American-made S&W fits the bill for any hand gunner looking for an ultra-reliable, well designed and ergonomically superior handgun that’s head and shoulders above anything else in its price range. A bold statement, to be sure, but made with absolute confidence. Though similar in many ways, the Austrian Glock production line of handguns typically cost several hundred dollars more. The Croatian-made Springfield XD has it’s following, but doesn’t come with many of the standard features on the M&P, such as multiple palmswell grips, The XD-M has addressed this in response to the M&P but the the XD is one-size-fits-all. Both Glock and Springfield pistols only have left side slide releases and are not as lefty friendly. Released in 2005 the M&P had the luxury of seeing what they did and attempt to improve. The M&P is a complete package. (Source:
