Default Mp vs glock

Recently our department decided to test the mp .40. Let me say that it is a smooth shooting gun and i am in love. My only worry is is that it hasnt been around long enough to see if it compares quality wise to the glocks? Any thoughts?

I've heard far fewer complaints about M&P than I have GLOCK. I wouldn't say that really means so much since GLOCK has been around twice as long, but it does mean something to me.

Outstanding! The Glock stock trigger feels like a staple gun to me The mp is smooth.

I have never heard anyone say anything negative about M&P. Also consider that maybe M&P's have only been around 11 years but Smith & Wesson has been around since 1852. Glock has been around 30 years but the Generation 4's have only been around a couple years.

Look at both guns history side by side:

Smith & wesson, 1852.

Glock, 1982.

Smith & Wesson M&P, 2005.

Glock Generation 4, 2010 (not even in Wikipedia yet).

I would say the M&P has more gun making experience backing it up than the Glock.

I love the way my M&P feels in my hand. The ergonomics are great. The only thing I don't like is the stock trigger, but until I can get a trigger job, I just keep practicing with it. My G19 feels like a brick, looks like a brick, but I shoot it better.

I heard that all the new M&P's are going over to the trigger from the M&P Shield. So there os probably a mix of old and new triggers on the M&P's at the shops now.

I've heard the same thing about the newer models. I did like the trigger on the Shield I tried at my LGS. While not great, it is definitely an improvement.
