Slide interchangeability?

I have a M&P Core with the 5" barrel (SKU 10049) and was wondering if the Slide (including all parts) from a M&P Ported (SKU 10218) with the 5" barrel fit on the Core frame (with its included parts)?

I ask because my Core frame has already been fitted with Apex fire control components and I wish to use the iron sights on the Core lower. I haven't bought the M&P Ported - yet.

It should fit/work with no problem. I`ll tell you ahead of time, the OEM PC barrels suck bigtime.
You`ll likely end up buying an APEX barrel to fix the sloppy OEM PC barrel & accuracy issues. Been there, done that.

I swap the slides between my CORE and and Pro (non ported), both 5" all the time. I also put my std 4.5" slide on either of the above as well. The Gen 1 series full size frames are pretty universal in fit the only difference being the plugs.

Sometimes, S&W has VERY sloppy internal slide dimensions. Then add the shitty Performance Center barrel, you`ll have a "pretty" shitty shootin gun.
