The two real differences I can see or feel are the grips and triggers. The Glock is squared up as far as the grip goes and the M&P has a better trigger feel and with the Shield trigger it is even better. Then you can get the M&P with an external thumb safety also.

This just leaves some room to customize the trigger to your liking.

Both great guns,highly accurate and dependable. I did trigger jobs to both. Only complaint I have with the m&p is the stupid little lever you have to push down to strip it.

Have to agree the grip and trigger on and m&p feel a lot better than a glock in my opinion

I own an M&P 40c and full size .45, I also own a G17, G19, and a G22. I must say that I like both guns a lot. I do tend to shoot the Glocks a little better and the trigger feels much better in my opinion...especially the reset. I do like the ambidextrous slide release on the M&P and the palm swell grip system as opposed to the back strap design of the Gen 4 Glocks...but I don't use them on the Glock anyway so it's not a huge deal. I have carried both on duty, but my department has started issuing us the G22, and even though I have the option of carrying a personal, I figure why not use their gun instead of my own.

Overall I don't think one is better than the other. There are little things I like about each of them.

Our agency uses the M&P40. One gun at the training range has 80,000 rounds through it, with no need for anything beyond being cleaned and lubed.

Personally I own a Glock 21 sf and a S&W m&p 40, and I've not had a single problem with either, though my round count for each is a paltry 1,000...

The biggest difference for me between the M&P and GLOCK is the grip angle and weight. The M&P will be slightly heavier than a GLOCK. For instance, my M&P .40 is heavier than my GLOCK 22, however, I strongly prefer the grip angle on the M&P over the GLOCK
