Smith and Wesson M&P 45 Single Stack

Some hubbub and a new commercial from S&W about an upcoming product. And my prediction is that it will be a single stack 45. It’s really the only M&P they haven’t quite done yet. And their commercial seems to target the concealed pistol carrier and not the tactical ninja market.

With all the hullabaloo about the XDS being a game changer, it makes sense. Of course, Glock has had one for years.

I’m hoping the take my advice and do a single stack 9mm.

Update: And, of course, the Kahr single stacks.

    Let the overrating begin…..

    …And So has Kahr

    I actually found it interesting at how little interest Kahr got durring the Micro-9 boom simply because their micro-9 was smaller, lighter, had a larger grip size, and had been around for 10 years…

  3. Mike Says:

    No, there is another M&P they haven’t done yet: a Glock 19-sized 9mm.

    What is so impossible about a 19-sized pistol? Are the laws of physics and the Universe so difficult to master that only Gaston has discovered their secrets?

    Springfield just chopped a couple of inches off the XD barrel, and called it a day. S&W only offers M&Ps sized in “can’t-get-the-last-two-fingers-on-the-bloody-thing” and “might-as-well-be-a-home-gun”.

    It’s stupid: as if car companies (save one) sold vehicles in subcompact and SUV platforms, with nothing in between.

    All I want is a Midsized 9mm!

  5. SayUncle Says:

    The 19 size would be a good one too.

  6. alan Says:

    Unless S&W can make the slide thinner, having a single stack 9mm won’t help much.

  7. Tim Covington Says:

    I have an M&P 45 Compact. Comparing it with my 1911, I can not see a reason for a single stack.

    Now, as others have said a 9mm that is roughly the same size as a Glock 19 would be a great addition to the line, IMNSHO.

  8. Evan Says:

    i think it will be a single stack 9mm to compete with all the new pocket 9s on the market.

    take notice of page 18 on this S&W state of the union:

  9. TomcatTCH Says:

    Lik Tim Covington alludes to, the M&P .45 already splits the difference between single and double column .45 ACP magazines. They are double column length (12 to 14 round capacity based on length), but only hold 10 rounds because they are already thinner than true double column magazines.

    Going single stack with their .45 wouldn’t change all that much.

    Going single stack on their 9mm (and most likely .40 short and weak) would make a good bit of sense. Assuming they did made the slide thinner like Alan mentioned.

    We shall see.

  10. Weer'd Beard Says:

    Tim, your 1911 have slim grips on them?

    If you don’t stick with the full-sized grips you can make a 1911 Scary skinny.

    a Single-Stack M&P might be able to do this.

    As a Kahr Fanboy at this point I’d just go with the TP45 which has mag interchangeability with my PM45.

    Or I’ll just stick with my 1911.

  11. Fred Says:

    If they stick to 9mm, they’d easily be able to slim down the slide.

    I’d be happy with something similar to a M&P equivalent to the LC-9, especially if it doesn’t have the horrible LCI and 85 safeties.

  12. aeronathan Says:

    Polymer 1911? That’s the next logical step after the polymer revolvers and it fits the single stack .45 idea…

  13. mikee Says:

    I want a 9mm as slim as my Colt Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless.

    With today’s improved metallurgy and engineering compared to 109 years ago, why can it not be done?

    Then I want my phaser.

  14. karl Says:

    Hopefully it won’t have malfunction issues like the Glock 36…

  15. HunterL Says:

    M&P tactical shotgun.. I want this product as I know many others do. From a business standpoint it allows them to push a whole array of products to the LE and military community and get those die hard S&W to get it as well…

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
