    Overall height, 4.6 inches
    Weight, 18.5 oz.
    Capacity, 9mm 7 or 8 rounds, 40 S&W, 6 or 7
    If I can figure out how to convert the PDF file so I can post it here I will. Trigger pull is listed at 6.5 pounds.
    The M&P9c lists a height of 4.3". So the new Shield is actually taller than a M&P9c?

    I could live with the extra .3" of grip if the gun is thinner, say in the area of .9" thick.

    I'll most likely buy one anyway. But it'll have to be comparable to my PPS in thickness before the PPS gets replaced.

    Also if you look at the grip of the Shield, it will not have interchangeable back straps. There is no pin on the bottom of the magwell to hold one in place. If you look at the photo closely, you can see the back strap is an integral part of the frame. Not a deal breaker for me, but I keep coming back to the idea that S&W will be competing with Walther's PPS on this one.

    Beat Trash, you are correct, no interchangeable backstrap. I forgot to mention that.

    I agree since it's being made in .40 also and Most pd's are .40 or 9mm

    Or they could be watching too many marvel movies lol

    S&W needs to make this one w/o manual safety just like the rest of the M&P line.
    I'm sure it will be removable just like the standard m&p if it bugs you that bad... Just a though

    Question

    With the extended mag, I wonder what the measurement would be compared to a 9c with a FS 17 round mag (with X-grip), which is how I sometimes carry when I don't want to carry a spare mag.
