Thanks for the review, William!


My EDC is a G23, so completely agree that this is a sweet spot in size for a carry pistol.

How much is ARFcom being paid for this review?

I'm interested in the gun, but to see a review stickied to the top of GD?

I suppose another "advantage" is it creates more distinction between the Compact and Shield.
Link Posted: 10/19/2017 1:55:58 PM EST
Nice review, thanks. I love my 9mm 2.0 compact. I think they got really right with this one.

Good point.  And the 2.0 Shield will be out in a couple weeks.

JM Custom Kydex, Knightfall Customs, Bravo Concealment and likely others. Many of them use the same mold as the standard 2.0 M&P since the barrels are only like 1/4" different.

Good review.  Can't wait to get mine.

.40 for the win.
Link Posted: 10/19/2017 4:51:43 PM EST
Great review but I still like the thinner Shield
Link Posted: 10/19/2017 5:25:21 PM EST
Thanks for the work on the video.

I like that the older S&W Compact is bigger than a G-26 and smaller than a G-19.

I wonder if S&W is doing this to position themselves to make a double stack G-26 sized M&P.
Link Posted: 10/19/2017 6:36:46 PM EST
I'm really liking mine, put Heinie Ledge sights on to replace the shitty 3 dot S&Ws. Also, damn S&W to HELL for not making a supply of spare magazines. You get the two with the gun, and two adapter spacers for full size magazines. No telling with spares will hit the market.

If they want to compete with the G19 they need to close the logistics gap, too.

I have the Full size 5 inch C.O.R.E and the Performance Center Shield..... but I wanted the 2.0 Compact bad. I couldn't find anyone local that had one in stock the week they came out but I bought one the next week. I have been carrying it since then and I like it. I need to find a new holster though. The grip is a bit rough against skin when I drive with it still holstered (4 or 5 o'clock position).
Link Posted: 10/19/2017 11:37:50 PM EST
Well done
Link Posted: 10/20/2017 7:16:20 AM EST
Dammit, I liked the first gen well enough to get two, both Apex’d, and all spare mags with the finger rest because it made the overall size right.

Now they change it up, just to spite my wallet.

Oh, and tag.

I'll be getting one someday, but not a first run.

Sorry. I should have been more specific. We aren't paid by manufacturers or vendors for reviews. I don't know anything about advertising on the site other than what you and I can both see. It has no bearing on our videos.

We don't keep test equipment either. Obviously, things like ammo or armor are consumed by the testing process and not returned to the manufacturer, but 10mm_ doesn't get to keep this pistol and there is zero incentive for him to be anything but perfectly candid. If you've paid any attention to the videos that William and I do, both for our own channels, and for Arfcom, we are not shy about telling you when something sucks.

I'm not entirely sure what you're looking for, either. Are you saying that this site and the video reviews and tests we make should be subscription only? I'm not sure that's a sustainable model.

What's really funny though, is that as critical as you are about videos here, you are probably gobbling up the reviews posted by certain large YouTube channels and the gun rags. Those really are flat paid advertising. And you're worried about Arfcom tacking a thread.


ETA: and I should admit that I do have bias, but it has nothing to do with advertising. I hate gimmick ammo and I'm hyper critical of any new ammo design. William hates SBRs and .300 BLK. But that's not because he was paid by the 20" cabal.

I think NotanATFagent is just concerned that the two of you are really lazy welders when there is a lot of work to be done.

"Lazy welder"? Is that like code for something? I'm kinda slow. And lazy. But I'm a terrible welder.

We've "plastered" some of Andrews gel tests as well. This is just us promoting our own content.

I, for one, appreciate it. I enjoy watching review videos. As the viewer, it is up to me and me alone to determine whether I feel the person on camera is credible and what they are saying has merit or not. If anything, videos like this just give us another perspective on new equipment that we might not get elsewhere short of buying the item for ourselves.

I hope everyone keeps up the good work.

No gen 5 19 review or comparison? I am disappoint.

Link Posted: 10/20/2017 7:09:55 PM EST
Great video. I like the looks of the M&P and the ones I have shot have always been very nice. It was a good idea for Smith to come out with something the same size as a 19. That size overall is very handy. I am torn though, if I get a Glock 19 or 17, I will have parts interchangeability with my Polymer 80 build.

WARPIG 26

Too late!! Already have the Glock 19 with modifications. If they would put a Performance Core Trigger on it for free Ill rethink my position of getting a new EDC.

Mossberg 715 my wife got when she scored 5k rounds of 22lr on a yard sale. Guy failed as a neckbeard. Sold ammo at pre shortage price and threw in the rifle.

Now over 1300 rounds...one light strike to report. (Blazer brass 115 gain. I recovered the cartridge...barely a ding in the primer.)

It is very, very "grippy". Obviously a result of the feedback from the original M&Ps, which was like grabbing a bar of soap. I like it!

I'm sure some judicious sanding could mellow it out, but I'm keeping mine.

Yes, or at least that's how it would feel up against your side.  It's a very aggressive texture.
