Same Thing with me. I bought the M&P compact 40 as a carry gun, its not terrible but its definitely not one of my 1911's. I did try the 15 rd magpul mag in mine as a cheapout way of extending the grip(large hands).
Have you found a good carry holster for this thing yet? everything I tried at Cabelas was aukward to say the least.
