A pistol with a lot of faults, namely being a Smith and Wesson. This company can't make a good quality semi auto that any country would use. Even now their M-4 copies are malfunctioning. They just build an expensive saturday nite special.

I've never owned a Smith and Wesson, but I haven't heard any complaints from those who do.

Rosco,

You clearly haven't a clue. The 3rd gen guns were good for their time. The sigma was crap, the walther copy SW99 was ok.

The M&Ps are excellent. They've got great ergonomics, they are reliable and accurate enough for their intended purpose.

I have no idea what a swz7 is. Its the first I've heard of it. Maybe its out on Xbox prior to it coming out in the real world.

It's an Israeli model, hasn't been introduced to the US market yet. Its a .41 magnum. Regular clip holds 30 rounds. And it has a built-in silencer, which is probably why you won't be seeing it in the U.S. anytime soon. And it works underwater, too.
Yeah, this is it:

ok spunk.

I forgot to tell YOU about the geeForCe 1270. Its a ray gun. It uses the power of the sun to focus and direct bad karma.

Spunkly. You must have seen it in an airsoft catalog. Sorry, those dont count. Google hasnt heard of it either.

Don
p.s. the laws of physics have not been revoked. Nothing that holds 30 rounds with an integral suppressor could be fit into a handgun sized package. Unless if fired tiny rounds like a .22

All the gun makers make good guns.

S&W makes some of the best revolvers. I own one. I would buy another, but their prices are too high for me. I can buy an AK47 for less money than it costs to buy a new S&W handgun.

If they make such great weapons, why don't they have a government contract? Their handguns suffer malfunctions all the time. They must be kept squeaky clean or they don't work. Uncle Sam won't even buy their rifles.

The model is specially designed to account for the larger caliber. It uses a proprietary internal cooling system that allows for a much smaller expansion chamber. Likewise, the expansion chamber size and baffle sizes/distances have been optimized for phase cancellation. It's destructive interference, like how two sine waves of similar frequencies can be (mostly) cancelled out by closely matching wave 1's crests with wave 2's troughs. Though this design demands use of that specific caliber and ammo brand to be effective.
Once again your three brain cells are residing somewhere between the E layer and D layer of the upper ionosphere. Time for you to go back to playing your "Duel" video game and let the big people talk here.

spunky brewster is actually pretty funny. I think its made by the same guys who make this:

http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Flux_Capac...

Rosco - the guns only been out for a few years. They are actively working to pick some of these contracts up.

I know people who shoot them in IDPA and they are accurate, safe and reliable.

Back to the real world, many new RFPs include the requirement for ambidextrous controls and manual safetys. This is KILLING Glock. The M&P can be had with a manual safety as well as an ambi slide release. Another requirement on some RFPs is for a mag disconnect. The M&P can be had with or without the disconnect.

Don
p.s. Several govt agencies have begun to issue the M&P, like the DEA. Its also won some good sized contracts with law enforcement. Lets not use adoption by the military as a standard issue sidearm as a high water mark. The Beretta 92 is mediocre at best.

It's no secret the S&W is a great weapon of choice. Their latest achievement just proves it over again. The website I posted a few weeks ago, http://www.outlawbidder.com , has a Smith & Wesson SD .40 up for auction right now. If you still haven't looked at the website, you really should. You can get things a lot cheaper here than you can by purchasing from a retailer.

So, I don't know if any of you checked out the website I mentioned above when the S&W .40 was available, but if you are still in the market for one, they currently have the Smith & Wesson M&P 15 Sport up for auction. If you want to take a look the website to go to is http://www.outlawbidder.com/categories/view/5... .
