In addition to the very popular 10-8 M&P Limited Runs (more info HERE), there will be a limited number of “special project” M&P builds coming off my bench. These are my personal experiments, and won’t follow any particular format or build schedule. The above gun was a company gun that had been used for a few projects but not shot much at all, and appears as new. I decided that it would be a good candidate to build into something slightly less “full house” than my current Limited Run guns.
Here’s the build info:
Base Gun: M&P 9 full size, no thumb safety, circa 2011 vintage.
Slide has full ATEi 10-8 package with full top serrations, front/side serrations, 10-8 logo in front of ejection port, refinish in black QPQ (same as factory finish).
Upgrade to new OEM 1:10 twist barrel.
Trigger components upgraded with Apex parts – AEK sear and USB spring, Ultimate striker block, and RAM
Apex Failure Resistant Extractor
10-8 Performance rear sight (.140″ U notch) and front sight (.160″ tall, .125″ wide with hand polished brass bead insert)
10-8 Performance magazine base pads on both factory supplied magazines
Trigger job, ~5lb
Polish feed ramp and chamber
Frame hand textured by Hilton with high cut trigger guard, texture under trigger guard, and front/back of grip. This is the same texture style as on my full house guns, but does not feature any texture on the side of the frame.
Test fire and sight in minimum 50 rounds with Atlanta Arms match ammunition and mixed ball/JHP.
