Takedown is a breeze with the M&P series, and there are no small components to be lost. It took us all of seven seconds to get the gun apart, and we took our time. We liked this feature a lot.

There are no extra controls on the M&P9 other than the ones needed to fire it, change magazines, and take it apart for cleaning. There’s provision for a light under the muzzle, and that addition can make the gun very handy as a house gun, and of course for police or military work as well. The relatively light gun bulks up with the addition of a full 18 rounds, fully loaded. The only safety is the trigger. The grip shape can be changed to some extent by changing the rear contour. A thinner and a thicker pad came with the gun, along with two magazines.
The trigger is hinged in the middle, and the unit cannot be moved rearward until the lower portion is first pressed. Note the trigger stop molded into the lower portion of the trigger and the abutment on the frame. Just above and forward of the trigger is the takedown lever, which must be rotated 90 degrees down to disassemble the gun. Behind that is the slide stop, and also shown is the magazine release. These are the only controls on the gun.
We liked this fiber-optic green front insert. It provided fast sight acquisition, and yet was within a squared holder so we could hold proper sight elevation. We’re not fond of such sights on precision guns, but for this type handgun we thought it was a good choice. But it doesn’t glow in the dark.
