Default My new 9mm CORE....

Took the new CORE out today. Dropped an Apex FSS in her and put on a Trijicon RMR. Ran about 20 mags through her. Digging the RMR. Still figuring the sighting-in part. Tried shooting with both eyes open. Was able to run a plate rack pretty darn fast. I do not like the new backstrap texture. If anyone has a small either FDE or black, I would buy it. PM me. Gun ran as predicted like my other M&Ps. Trigger got better as the day went.
Here she is sporting the RMR...

Bought it on Gunbroker. Probably paid too much, but I figured with the price of 17 round mags, the gun was cheap.
I'll probably sell off the three backstraps as well to offset the total.

PM'd you back. I'll post the medium and large CORE backstraps in the WTS:Accessories Forum. Gonna trade Nuttball for the small one.

Pretty close to retail, but the others on GB now are going past that. There is a 9mmL on there.
Here is mine as the sun set yesterday. I put the medium FDE backstrap on there until I get the small.
I do like the contrasting colors.

Thanks, I did a search and it was listed incorrectly as the 5" barrel ver. I'll just wait till it comes out. Have fun! Do you like how the RMR sits on there?

Really like how it sits there. Still learning how to shoot with it. I am getting better. Ran about 200 rounds through her yesterday. I am not sure how the 9mm drops from the 4" barrel. I was also shooting a mixture of ammo. I will get to the indoor range this week and sight her in at some exact yardage and see where that outs me.

Do you have any other parts for it? I got pretty much all of what I could get from Apex for mine and i'm wondering how it'll run. I'm wanting the 5" barrel because that's what i'm use to shooting Beretta M9's at work.

I got the strap in the mail today.... Love it. The texture gives the gun way more grip. Wonder if they will start using these on all the M&P models.

I've got an M&P 40 CORE and want to mount a Trijicon RMR. Yours looks great. I've been trying to find out if it co-witnesses with the pistol sights. Does yours co-witness?

I just got one and have not shot it yet....I put the small back strap on it and it doesn't fit perfect.....it sticks out just a bit where it is supposed to blend in on the left side....right above where it slides into the slot....
Does anyone else have this issue....it just doesn't fit flush like it should.
Steve
