This was my first order from this seller and I already placed another order today... Very happy with this transaction... Smooth easy sale and pistol was at my local dealer in a couple days...
I received this firearm just a few weeks before Christmas this year. Have no problem with my dealings Sportsmans. Considering how busy they were just before the Holidays, it took about a week and a half to arrive. Now for the pistol. I have carried a Shield 9 for several years and loved the gun. The 9's operation was very trustworthy, something you could trust to defend yourself if ever necessary. The Shield 45 is a different story altogether. Maybe it's just mine, but the failure to feed is so bad, I couldn't rely on the firearm to defend myself. The newly textured grip is so rough, it can't be carried next to exposed skin and is hell on shirts. Recoil and muzzle flip with standard .45 ACP loads, approx. 850 Ft/Sec. is a little difficult to stay on target with a 230 grain bullet. I'm sure with more range time and 185/200 grain bullets it might be more manageable. Last but not least, at 35 feet this pistol shoot 3-4 inches to the left, which is B.S. being that far off from the manufacture. I thought this might have been me, so I got out the ransom rest and found it wasn't me, but the sight. Now, if any of you have tried to move the rear sight on a shield, it's like pulling teeth. I would say without a sight press it can't be done without damaging sight. After contacting S&W, you guessed it, send it in and we'll take a look at it. 4-6 weeks later I might have it back. FYI, the failure to feed is due to the extractor hanging on case rims ejector grove. Three different ammo manufactures were tried, and after 150 of rounds fired, I was never able to get a full magazine to run through it.
This is my first 45ACP single stack and I love it. Took a bit to find the right way to grip the gun. The grip is very thin but once I got used to it it was fine. Went through 4 boxes of 230 grain ball and 50 rounds of HST without a hiccup. My new conceal carry.
Upon arrival of my Shield 45 M&P, I wasted no time. Went straight to the range, shot about 200 rounds through it and oh my oh my oh... MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS this is one bad bad little Joker mocha. This is one great product by Smith & Wesson. I did not come across any issues while I was shooting this gun. I am SUPER SUPER satisfied and of course is my new concealed carry. I highly highly recommend the M&P 45 Shield.
One more thing; Sportsman's outdoor Superstore, you guys rock! Thank you for adding the 45 Shield to your line of products just awesome.
This was my first purchase from this seller and I was very satisfied! The well-known, online gun store I usually do business with raised the price of their .45 Shield by $50 a few days after S&W began their $75 rebate offer! I refused to buy from them and gave Sportsman's Outdoor a try and am very glad I did. Their price was excellent and the shipping took about 10 days. The .45 Shield is a great gun! Just a bit bigger than my 9mm. Matter of fact, I was able to use several of my 9mm holsters. Will definitely do business with Sportsman's Outdoor in the future!
This is my first pistol and decided on the Shield 45 ACP due to its CCW design and caliber. Added Ameriglo SW-145 Classic sights. First time at the range I fired 50 rounds of 230g Winchester Winclean with no issues. 3 groups at 25 yards seated at the bench. I will continue with more rounds and techniques to gain experience, but for a first run I'm very happy with it.
I've ran a few hundred rounds of the cheapest ammo I can find. Not 1 hiccup. Reliability is very important to me. I also ran my defense ammo through it; it ate that up as well. This is an amazing pistol, for an amazing price. S&W did great with this.
