I am glad S&W is moving to a system like this. Very forward thinking.

We were not planning on releasing the M&P ATOM conversion until later 2013 as we are focusing on getting our aftermarket Glock slides out and support the Glock ATOM conversions that are hitting the streets.

I do wonder why they market it as a competition pistol and not duty / tactical pistol. I thought most comp guys used frame mounted optics.

Very cool that they are moving forward though!

We WOULD use a frame-mounted optic on the M&P if there were a better design than the flimsy units that mount onto the accessory rail... The frame-mounted units on the 2011 are tapped, and screwed into the steel frame. All of the frame-mounts to date either utilize the accessory rail, or tap into frame pins.

Maybe an intelligent gunsmith/engineer could design a better solution... potentially for a sideways mount (low to slide) frame-mount solution for the M&P... :-)

If one were prototyped, and one needed testing and proofing... I know a guy who would jump at the chance. ME!

Jeff, I actually have a design for one. I had a really odd desire to build a M&P race gun... Let me see what C2M is on it and will let you know. It was for an RMR. Top mount, though, probably easy enough to turn into a side mount.

It does use the frame pins, has someone tried this with poor results?

Yes, they do them, and probably do a great job and in large volume. However, I have almost jumped in with their product several times, but IMHO they are too expensive.
I love the idea of a factory product that doesn't have to have the slide recoated after milling, taller sights are standard, fits multiple optics so if you want to change down the road, etc. I will now wait for the core. Price-wise it seems like it will be much less expensive than sending a slide off.

I'm liking this. I've been debating getting one of my handguns milled for an MRDS as my eyes are crapping out fast these days. This now gives me a factory option which is nice. Couple this with the rumored barrel updates and I may be well on the way to buying another MP.

Would love to see some pics of how the MRDS' mount. The one picture o nthe web of a DeltaPoint makes it look like it sits really tall on the slide; almost like the BUIS are lower 1/8 or something. Also surprised that they didn't slide the optic back further and incorporate a fixed rear blade into the mounting/cover plate. Would make holster fit a lot easier with the dot further back on the slide.

They do look high, I believe they will use an adapter plate like the FN does. Not sure how the irons will look over an RMR... I hope to see some more pictures some out and see how they did it.

A factory option is AWESOME and should really open up the concept to agencies.

I am looking forward to the range report, once you have a chance to test it.
I have been considering getting one to go with my custom M&Pc that has the
slide cut for an RMR.

I was going to send my slide out and have it milled and then either send it out for trigger work or buy the APEX trigger kit.
then I saw the CORE pistol. for those that are eligible I do believe that the pro- core will fall under the Le/Mil discount program. They are out there for purchase, I found 2 locally but not the cal. I was after, I am in trying to find the 4.25in. 9mm version to purchase
