I have the opportunity to purchase a M&P or M&P PRO at a deeply discounted price. I wanted to mount an RMR on the gun but I don't know what to do. It'd be cheaper for me to buy the PRO and mill the slide than it would to sell it and buy a PRO.

Thoughts on course of action? Should I even bother with the PRO or just get the M&P?

OTH?

I would get the standard M&P9 FS and mill it for the RMR. In my opinion, you get the 5" Pro for use with iron sights in competitions, get the 4.25" for all around use and with the RMR you will be just as accurate, but the bullet wont go as 'fast'. More holster options too.

Yeap. OTH.

You think just regular M&P? I'm going to replace the sights on either gun. Wasn't sure if the extra inch was worth it or not.

That being said I do carry a P30L some days...

Yeah that is what I did, got a 4.25" with TB for all around use. Have an X300 Ultra on it with a Raven Phantom LC holster.

I have a 5" Pro for IDPA use. Thought about the 5" with RMR, didn't mesh for me though.

I carry all of those including my Shield, depends on my mood and how 'bad ass' I want to feel.

Quite honestly I'm probably going to switch from carrying a P30 or P30L to a Glock 20....

Going to shoot a gun with a RMR or Deltapoint mounted to see if I even like it...

I have a shield but never carry it. Bought that for the occasional gym shorts errand run, need to come up with a way other than belly band to carry that...

Get the CORE - has high sights and comes machined to accept the RMR. Choose 4.25" or 5" as you prefer.

COREs are not an option for him.

Nor is getting both.

If the CORE isn't an option, you're going to end up sending a lot more money.

Not really. He will still be under the price of a CORE with machining work included.

I already did the math. I'll be under the CORE significantly enough. Just a question of the PRO or the M&P.

I'll wrestle with the idea for a bit longer but I'm going to lean towards the M&P not the PRO.

How much is it costing to get the slide machined for the RMR?

I must have gotten a sweet deal on my CORE.

I don't quite understand what is being asked?

Are you wondering between 4.25 inch and 5 inch? Do the pro's only come in 5 inch now?

If you plan on milling I would get the Pro (5 Inch?) A RMR on top is already going to take away from deep concealment options, and the 5 inch will be better for toying at the range (which is the point of RMR, right?)

I just ditched my M&P Core with JPoint, it was nice, but I couldn't justify carrying it, and I don't do any competition style shooting. Seemed like a waste to have that much money tied up in something that sat in the safe
