Welcome aboard. I'm rather partial to the Cerakote tungsten color. I've had a few pistols done with it but not yet an M&P. Here's an XDS with a tungsten finish on the slide:

Yeah, I think I'd go with the tungsten too. Make sure to share pics when you get it done. I love my 40c, great choice. And, oh, welcome to the forum!

I personally like burnt bronze,had my 9c slide and frame done. But it is your gun, do what you like to it.

Looks very nice. I'm rather fond of personalizing my favorite weapons.
