Hybrid M&P. full size slide on compact frame.

After putting apex kits in the three M&Ps I have I've noticed how identical the compact vs the FS is. What are your thoughts of using a full size slide on a compact frame? It fits the holster I have exactly the same.

The guys at 21st Century Gunfighter are working on just such a kit. I don't know how long it has been in testing or how long until it goes into production but it might be worth the wait.

I've played around with my FS slide on my Compact frame and it feels really good. I haven't been able to find out if it's safe to shoot or not so I haven't tried that yet.

Why would you want to do it? Just because you can?

The concealability of a Compact, with the sight radius of a Full Size. In many minds, the perfect hybrid.

Springfield made one for a while in the XD line. It had a 5" 45ACP slide on a shorter grip. It looked weird, but it worked great.

FS slide on a compact frame is fully functional. The only issue is that the compact frame leaves part of the recoil spring exposed.

David Bowie will shorten your FS grip to compact size for $125.

Well 21CG told me to contact them after the shot show. I did with no response. Sucks. I was really hoping for something on this. A friend of mine is a machinist. Maybe we'll have to see if we can brainstorm up some sort of extension/cover.

Here's what Cole Partnerships and Training, LLC posted on their FaceBook page:
"Stephen Pineau of M3 Strategies and I unveiling our project from 2013, The Hybrid. The hybrid will allow M&P users to do a compact / long slide variant of their M&P without having to send out their M&P to get chopped."

I asked this question on Jan 24, 2014:
Very interested in the The Hybrid. Any idea when it will be available to purchase?
His answer:
Stephen and I estimated second quarter this year sir.

So maybe there's hope yet!
