My carry gun is already heavy enough! Also, what you get in reaction mass, you give up in flexibility for recoil absorption. My stainless 1911 .45 feels like more recoil than my .40 M&P. And of course, after the hypothetical exercise, you will really have to discuss cost which will be a lot more than injection molded nylon.

I voted stupid. Why screw up a perfectly good thing? The polymer guns are tops on the market for a reason. Now I do not like Glocks not because they are polymer but because of the way they feel in my hand. Ergos just SUCK with the Glock. They are very popular though. I do own an M&P and a Walther PPQ. I used to own 1911's and other metal framed autos. No the only metal framed guns I own are revolvers.

Would you want a polymer framed 1911? Absolutely not! The M&P platform was designed as a polymer gun. Change that and it becomes a completely different firearm. As others have mentioned, S&W offers other steel framed pistols. Let the M&P stand alone for what it truly is... a great gun with a great design in its class.

I voted maybe. The appeal of the current M&P with high capacity and lower weight makes me skeptical of an all metal M&P.
I have some 10 rd. Chip McCormick mags for my 1911 single stack .45 bowling pin gun which equals the capacity of the M&P .45 so a metal M&P in .45 probably would not make me reach for my wallet.

I would love a metal framed striker fired hand gun. I prefer the thought of a steel frame gun. The only thing I dont like about the M&P is the polymer frame. I know I am gonna get flamed, but it is just a thing for me.
I want to add that I am new to handguns, so as I grow and get more experience, this could change. I am most likely getting and M&P 9 as my first handgun. Regardless of it being polymer, I am still gonna get one.

I'm in for a steel frame. I prefer my MPs over my Sig 226 but the 226 stays with my bug out gear because I trust the all metal for the long term. My brain knows polymer is just fine but my paranoia sends me back to metal.
