327 TRR8 vs M&P R8

Can anyone tell me what the difference is between the 327 TRR8 and the M&P R8. The only difference I can see is that the 327 TRR8 has removable rails where the M&P R8 has the rails built in.

That's pretty much it, other than the markings.

I don't much care for the large "M&P" logo on the right side of R8.

Thanks for the info.
Now I just have to decide which one I like best and then see if I can find one.

I love my R-8. so did my daughter. I gave her mine and bought a 2nd one. I wanted to give her one that i put 100 rounds down the barrel because there was talk about miss fire but had no problems with it. I haven't shot this one yet.
I like the looks of all black. The grips are great. The gun is a shooter. You will love it.

Just looked at both, the rifling looks different. I think the R8 is polygonal while the TRR8 is standard, so if you shoot a lot of lead the TRR8 might be a better choice. Also, ejector cutout on the TRR8.

When i shot my R-8 i used the moon clips. Its nice and fast. Has anyone try not to use the moon clips? I read the gun may miss fire without them ?

Love my M&P R8

I am the proud owner of an M&P R8. It is now my favourite hand gun. The accuracy was excellent right out of the box, and the trigger pull ok on double action and excellent on single action. I have put about 800 rounds through it about 50/50 .38/.357 and no issues. I have shot both with and without the moon clips and both ways work ok. Because of barrel length restrictions in Canada I was lucky to find one with a 5" and am really happy with it. The 8 shot capacity just adds to the enjoyment of shooting it.
