S&W M&P .45 questions
Has anyone removed the magazine safety/disconnect from their M&P?

I shot Jo Da Plumbr's M&P .45 again yesterday and really like it. But I need one without the thumb safety, and will also need to neuter the magazine safety.

Thanks, in advance.

I have an M&P45 without the thumb safety, don't know about the Mag Disconnect. Would like to know myself. What exactly will it do to the function without the Disconnect?

I looked at it closely, and its on the same pin as the take down sear. It might be as simple as removing the rear roll pin, carefully taking that assembly out and removing the mag safety sear and spring. Also checked really close how it functions, and it looks like it won't impede anything when removed.

Who wants to go first?? :D

Typically removing the mag disconnect makes the trigger smoother, and it allows the gun to fire without a magazine seated.

This guy is not the sharpest tool in the shed but I think you get the idea. Just use a real hammer when you do your gun. :o

This guy isn't much better!

While looking I came across this well written and illustrated M&P DIY trigger job;

Perfect! Exactly what I thought needed to happen. Did not thing about having to add a spring though. What a simple source of springs, too. And a broom as a hammer - this guy is crafty. I like that.

Did you check out the trigger job?

Mine doen't have a mag safety and I expect you can still order them with out. I wonder if some states require them or would take issue if removed?

How can you tell if it has mag safety?

The easy way, unload the pistol/remove the mag, clear the action then release the slide. With the firearm pointed in a safe direction pull the trigger, if you hear the striker fire no mag safety, if no striker fire you have a mag safety.

If you shoot a hole in the floor you didn't follow the instructions completly and no mag safety.
