Looks like a cross between a S&W model 410 and a S&W Sigma with influences of a Glock and Sig...Looks like a nice pistols that fit the hand well. Has anyone read any tests on this model?

Essentially a Glock type striker fired polymer framed pistol. But with a grip angle more like a Sig P-series. The frame also has the mounting rails for lights etc.

A "so simple a monkey could fire it under stress" pistol, perfect for law enforcement! To me it's a Glock with a way better grip angle. I like it. After owning a Glock and a Sig, the Sig wins. But also after firing the S&W 5946 (RCMP) I like it best of all for it's very nice and consistent trigger.

A guy at work just got the light for the end of his Glock, so we all tried it out. I found that when the lights were down and the light mounted on the gun was on, you couldn't see your three night sights and were thus using the outline of the front and rear sights.

Didn't like it too much myself. However, he advised that he thought the idea of the light was more for close contact and house clearings etc. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Using your iron sights should be more accurate than using you night sights.

This is one of the better Polymer guns I've tried. The recoil on this weapon is far less than other Polymer guns I've fired of comparable size.

Just went on S&W's website....the non-slip grip and grip angle look very comfortable. I'm a little out of the loop on new guns...how long has this been on the market for?

There are three options for the grip size as well. Which will thrill any unit/agency that will issue the weapon.
They are also starting to take into account that there are left handed shooters (like me) and have started to make ambidextrous mag releases and slide stops more common than before. It's also one of the first weapons I've seen that actually made a trigger guard big enough to allow duty/assualters gloves to be worn.
