Place your bets

Mentioned Smith and Wesson hyping their new M&P model that they’re advertising. The ad targets concealed carry. But no one knows what it is, definitively. So, what say you? My top guesses are single stack models or a new caliber offering, like maybe a .380 pocket variant. The other thing is that it could be a midsized (i.e., Glock 19 sized) variant of the M&P. Or a sub compact model as their M&PC is a bit larger than the G26 so maybe a smaller, 10 round version.

Well, what do you think?

    Wild guess here:

    They’re going to offer a slightly enlarged Bodyguard chambered in 9mm to go up against the LC9/PM9/P938/etc.

    They can’t compete with Glock on size – they can’t get significantly smaller than the Compact to make much noticeable difference; and XD beat them to the punch on the XDs for the small 45.

    There’s a much smaller market in pocket 9s, though. I could see them offering something under the magic M&P moniker for concealed carry…

    All this talk on M&Ps lately makes me want to give one a try.

  3. SGB Says:

    They will introduce a 9mm that doesn’t need a brand new trigger out of the box.

  4. BalloonGoesUp Says:

    My bet is a single stack, something. My hope is a G19 sized M&P.

  5. Jeff Says:

    Double stack 10mm.

  6. ExurbanKevin Says:

    An M&P-branded derringer in .500 S&W.

  7. Ryan Says:

    A 10mm M&P would be so sweet but me thinks it will be a single stack 9mm.

  8. anon Says:

    A single stack 9mm, 4″, 8+1. That is: about the size of a SIG P6/225. Everything old is new again…

  9. Weer'd Beard Says:

    A semi-auto M&P chambered in .410!

    We’ll all be disappointed when they unveil it AND every time they announce the sales figures AND see some dork shooting one at the range!

    Gift that keeps on giving!

    Polymer 1911! Polymer 1911! WTF not, they’re making everything else in plastic these days…

  11. Adam Says:

    Hopefully it’s a thin, single stack 9mm roughly the size of the G36. If so, I’m in.

  12. Hartley Says:

    OK, I’ll play – I’d bet on a single-stack 9/40 which will look a lot like the new XD or the Walther PPS (which look a lot alike). Nuttin’ new under the sun.

    I like my M&P9C – and my PPS – don’t need any more nines, tho..:-) Still using the G30 as primary.

  13. Bubblehead Les Says:

    I’m guessing they kept looking at the Ruger LC9/Taurus Slim9/Keltec PF-9/Kahr envelopes and said “Why can’t we build one?” So I think that’s what’s coming.

  14. Jailer Says:

    Dammit! Had my snark all worked up and weer’d beat me to it.

  15. Ben Says:

    I’m with Adam, single stack 9mm. Keep it skinny.

  16. Jerry Says:

    A triple column magazine, in a full size pistol. Probably .380. It would keep the grip area more round, as opposed to a 9mm. Also, the grip panels extend, with the front, and backstrap. This would form a longer mag well. I know, I’ll never need a longer magazine. It is good to have the option, other than standard 25 round ‘triple clips’. Here’s the good part. Thanks to neoprene webbing, instead of steel springs, when you rack the slide, it creates a, uh, uhm, ……… vaccum, er, self cleaning magwell.

  17. Fred Says:

    .380 pocket gun would be silly. They already make one.

    I’m hoping for a single-stack 9mm of some sort, although the last time I was really hoping for that from them they revealed the “Governor,” so I’m not fully optimistic.

  18. Paul Says:

    I’m hoping it is a single stack subcompact, like a Glock 26, but slimmer.

    Who knows. Hope it come soon!

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