Because it would be a copy of the Block`s (Glocks) design, and they`re ugly...lol. I own a bunch of Blocks, but i`m surely NOT a fan of their looks OR their ergonomics.
I only own them because they work very well when you need them most. They are the most trusted stryker fired gun on the market.

The front of the MP trigger guard is pretty flat. If you like to hook your index finger around it I don't see it presenting much of a problem as is. Add a little grip tape for some traction.

Looks very interesting. My next pistol will either be one of these, or the new CZ P10c.

I`d like to check out the CZ P10C. Nice to know that any glock holster i already have will work.

I don't think that USPSA rules state that grip tape can be put there for Carry Optics and I'd prefer to not be the test case. FWIW, Flat doesn't mean square.

Thanx PaPow. I object to the Glock for the 2x4ish feel of it and the grip angle and I don't really care for striker fired guns. Yes, I have M&Ps despite that. But I understand. I still think that their supposedly competition guns should have a square trigger guard or a hook. IMO they have yet to make an actual competition gun rather than a gun that merely appears to be a competition gun.

Wonder if they moved the Striker block away from under the rear sight and that's what the roll pin on the slide is for.

I didn't realize you were a competition shooter. Every little bit helps.

No big deal JohnnyB, there's no way you could have known. I mention it from time to time, but no one is assigned to monitor me (I hope) :-) . Carry Optics rules are changing to be far more inclusive of guns from different divisions, so I'll keep the suggestion in mind. Heck, they may even have relaxed that specific placement of grip tape with the latest rules (I'll check closer, hopefully I was wrong and it's allowed there. They do allow it in many more areas now than when CO started up 2 warm weather shooting seasons ago. (Gee, has it really been that long!? I think it was August of '15 when it started.)

Looks like an FNS 9/40, with fish scale slide serrations.

I wonder what that's for?

The other doesn't have it.

Also, what is that little button just in front of the slide stop?

Select fire button?

Last but not least, that web page has disappeared from the Academy website but it was captured by TFB.

The CA model M&P Shield has a pin there for the loaded chamber indicator.
