S&W M&P45 fullsize 2.0 grip question

Recommended Posts

Just got me a new 2.0 M&P . Great gun but the grip is really abrasive . What have you M&P 2.0 owners did if you encounter this ? I hate to sand it down right off the bat .

This^ 

I've also thought of having custom holsters made to include a piece of leather between the grip and my flank.

Grip sleeves, but they don’t make them for the .45 guys. Youse guys are supposed to be tougher than that.

 

 

 

 

 

:taunt: Just kidding Hogue doesn’t make them for the .45, but other companies do.

Sounds kinda cheesy, but bicycle inner tubes cut to fit the grip work.  Ive done this in the past. The rubber gives a good grip too.  Wont last forever but it works., and a whole lot cheaper than grip sleeves made commercially!

I'd think the generic double stack sleeve would fit reasonably.... but the Hogue grips have some texture as well.  I have one on my Shield and it'll rub a spot on my side when I wear it all day.  

Ive considered undershirts, but I'm not sure how I'd manage the heat. I sweat enough as it is.  Another option is to move the gun a little further around (I normally carry at about 3:00) so the butt is off my side a bit more. It a compromise between comfort and concealment.

I thought about that too but my full time job uniform is 30 lbs and hot as heck . When I am not working I wear the least amount of clothes I have to. I may try the bicycle inner tube.

For what it's worth I like the small of the back holster. I'm a big guy in both frame and fat. I find that a SOTB carried at 5 keeps the grips out of my tender flesh.

My answer may have appeared to have been made glibly, but it wasn’t. I’ve carried both the 1.0 M&P 9c and the 1.0 Shield9 for a number of years prior to getting my 2.0 9 Compact. At first I was not a fan of the new texture as I thought it was excessively rough. Then I shot it and kept shooting it. The more I shot the 2.0, the more I came to realize just how slick the grips on the 1.0s were. The more I realized how much of an improvement the 2.0 grip texture was, the less it bothered me. So an undershirt or some minor roughness against the skin has become a minor sacrifice that’s outweighed by the benefits of the 2.0s texture.

I carried small of back right up until I slipped on some ice and landed on the gun. Owwie. That was a long time ago and i still get a twinge in my back just thinking about it.

If it is a keeper would do some limited sanding at the point of contact.  Can't notice it otherwise.

Yes, but think how bad it would hurt doing the same but driving the gun into your hip bone. :stare:

I'd choose getting whacked in the hip over the spine 10 times out of 10.

I sanded it pretty good and of course the black color turns a little grayish but it feels great. Plus the small grio insert makes this 45 full size pistol feel like a 9mm. It's a keeper for sure so that's why I don't mind sanding it down. It feels better than a lot of other polymer guns as far as grip texture and in girth too for it being a big-bore pistol.

      Picked up a Stoeger STR-9.
      Got it from local Rural King for $338.42. Came in cardboard box with info, 3 back straps and 3 15 round mags.
      Made in Turkey. Very Glock like inside and shoots as good as a Glock 19 for me.
      I would compare to Glock gen3/4 G19 model.
      Standard 3 dot sights but are metal. Parts do not seem to be interchangeable with Glocks but it does fit Glock 19 holsters.
      Put 500 rounds thru it so far with 2 failures to completely eject fired casings, strong RSA and 3 times slide locked back with rounds still in mag, found out I was riding up on slide lock.
      Sight are POA/POI for me and groups at least as well as any Glock 9mm I have owned.

      Hello folks, I bought this Beretta model 81BB recently exclusively to convert to 32NAA. My goal is to match its grouping abilities to a 32NAA casing loaded with Lehigh 55g all copper defense bullets. For now, this is what the used M81 can do at 30 feet shooting off a wooded 4X4 block as a frame rest. Prior to the rechambering, the average speed of some pretty old PMC 71g FMJ loads were 962 fps out of the 10 round string. The PPU averaged 914 fps.
        To do a conversion on a Beretta Model 81, it simply requires renting the reamer from 4D rentals for a total cost of $47 bucks, adding a model 84 380 magazine and some ammo. No other mods are needed since Beretta uses the same bolt face in their 81/84 model slides. The thick gripped Beretta is a most comfortable gun to shoot. In 32ACP its a real kitten. Stepped up to the new chambering and you know immediately, this aint your grandfathers ACP! The 80g Defensive HP's stepped out at an average of 1067fps in the pictured 10 shot string. I'm looking forward to see what kind of velocities I can generate with the 55g Lehigh copper pills. They should have some serious splash out of the Beretta's 4 3/4" barrel. Then I couldn't help giving the Guardian a go at the 30 foot target with the PMC's. There is some evidence of slight key holeing out of the Guardians shallow rifling but hitting the paper regularly at that range with those sights is still acceptable in my view.  ;D

      Have any of you ever heard of this distributor?  If you go through prices, some are listed as normal, some are shown as on Sale, and are several hundred dollars cheaper than anything I can find online.
      Just trying to find out if this site is legit. Not looking for random opinions, more how to tell if it's a scam.
