I know Nick Fury is packing a M+P in the upcoming Avengers film, and was nerdishly excited when I saw the ad for the M+P Shield on Facebook earlier today. Sadly it's just a single stack concealable verson and not emblazoned with the SHIELD logo. :(

Not a true single stack; the magazine is like 1-1/2 cartridges wide.

The Shield’s magazine isn’t a true single column magazine—in fact, it is about a cartridge-and-a-half wide, except where it narrows at the top. I spoke to one of the engineers who told me they didn’t go with a true single column magazine to avoid issues with rim lock. This slightly wider magazine, however, allows for a little more capacity in a pistol that is a mere 4.6-inches tall.

Not a single stack but still slimmer than a double stack mag.

Nice, but does it have the same width slide and frame as the double stack models?

I'm very interested in the Bersa BP9CC, as it is a slender single stack 9mm striker fired polymer framed gun... but a single stack, SLENDER M&P would have a very good shot at getting my money.

Think the whole pistol is slimmer overall but the grip is designed to mimic the medium sized grip of a full size M&P. I just skimmed over the article and didn't pay attention to the details.

I checked the site, it only shows the frame width. It is .95". The full size 9mm frame is 1.2". Doesn't mention the slide.

I really REALLY really want something single stack that is more slender than my G19's slide, which is, IIRC, around 1". I'll have to keep my eyes out for the M&P Shield, and maybe finger fuck one.

Holy shit, do like!

Like someone mentioned above, I would like one with a slightly longer barrel and slightly longer grip. I just want it to be thin. Heck, a single stack, THIN G19 would be perfect. The 'fatness' of the G19 is what I don't like.

Wow.
The tech specs on the mfr's sites state there is only 8mm difference in frame thickness.
But it seems to be more than that...

I carried a Kahr pm9 but wanted to bump up the firepower. It's not that much bigger but man did I notice the increased thickness. I actually had to get bigger pants. I think I may have to look into this guy, as I love the M&P series.

Glock can't even handle adding backstraps and dual recoil springs to their line up. I don't think they could make a reliable single stack.

Wow... I might have to check these out. This is the gun GLOCK owners have been asking GLOCK to make for YEARS! I see threads all the time on GLOCKTALK where people ask for a single stack 9mm that is roughly between the size of the GLOCK 19 and 26.

Looks like Smith and Wesson wins this one! Being a long time GLOCK owner (Glock 17, 19, 22, 23, 26 and 30) I can honestly say the M&P is a far superior firearm. I have the M&P9 and the M&P45 Mid-Compact and they are just SO much more comfortable then any of my GLOCK's. GLOCK's new Gen 4 was just an epic fail, if you go GLOCK, the Gen 3 is the only way to go but I don't know that would ever get another GLOCK now that the M&P's are out.

Just my .02$ cents.

I'm sure they could. But, to be fair, nobody has proven that S&W can either. This gun could be as reliable as their other M&P's or it can be an epic failure. Time will tell.

They did a single-stack .45ACP subcompact just fine.

Hell, they could easily shave a few mm off of the existing G19 or G26. Those guns are pretty overbuilt, and beefy for what they are.

they had dual recoil springs on the G26/27 when they first came out and those worked fine. Gen4 is where they screwed up (at least initially)
