Thanks for the pics Jeff. Looking forward to the range report.
I was also considering buying a used full size and having the slide cut
and trigger work done. If the trigger is decent on these factory guns
that might be the way to go. Let us know how well the factory sights
co-witness with what ever dot sight you install.
I called S&W yesterday to find out if the rear dovetail cut is the same as
the standard cut but they did not know, can you tell anything by looking at
your standard guns?
Thanks for your feedback.

With those high sights will it fit in the same holster as other M&P's or is it going to need something new?

Trigger pull, which I haven't had a chance to measure, feels quite good. Far better than any other out of the box M&P triggers that I have felt. My estimate is that it is very near the advertised 4.5 pounds. Very little over travel. The Striker block will need a little work.

The front sight dovetail looks identical to that on my FS.40. The rear sight dovetail is quite different.

This is the CORE rear dovetail:

I don't yet have a holster for a 5", but putting the CORE in my CompTac OWB holster for the 4.25" slide shows that there is plenty of room for the taller sights.

I have the tall suppressor sights on my M&Pc and they fit fine in my Garrett Indudtries Silent Thunder and my Bladetech Nano. They are the only two holsters I have for an M&P.

Thanks Jeff. I really appreciate the info. Looks like all I have to do is decide if I want a 9 or 40. You can get a tall tritium front from Dawson and I will just have to figure out what the dovetail is on the rear. My custom machined slide uses the Glock cut for the rear and tall sights for that cut are easy to find. This will be my alternate carry gun, so I want to get the tritium sights front and back. Thanks again for the great info.

Thanks for the holster info. I am looking to make one of these my first M&P and us it for some local zombie 2 and 3 gun comps.

So now I really need to search because I want both the new pro and shield. The 2 most unavailable guns they have right now.

I saw a .40 CORE this past weekend at the Hickory gun show, but that was the only one. Dealer said he didn't have any 9mms. Looked good, and if it had been a 9, I would have bought it.

Still looking,

Have you had a chance to get it to the range yet? I"m very interested in how accurate this thing is.

Are there any decent tall night sights available for them yet?

And threaded barrels? Though you could just get a L-version barrel and have threads cut on it...

Dawson makes a tall tritium front sight, it is what I am using on my RMR equipped M&Pc. I do not know what the cut is for the rear sight on the CORE,
you will have to check around. I would call Dawson first.
Good luck, I will need a rear also, once I find a CORE to buy.

Jerry Miculek's review on YouTube:

Start of bench review
Barrel changes

The 1:10 twist rate and different profile for the hood were news to me along with the list of manufacturers that would co-witness.
