Not I. For me, it's too little, too late. Have shot and/or owned Gluck, 1911 and XDM 10mms and found the XDM-10 is nearly perfect for me. A year or two ago maybe, but I have no need for the M&P anymore. What's my perfect 10mm you ask? Why it's a S&W, of course! The M610.

Own several G20鈥檚 and G29鈥檚.
A couple of high end custom 1911鈥檚 in 10mm as well.
I鈥檝e always preferred the ergos of the M&P over the XDm.
I agree though, it鈥檚 late to the party, but I recall all of us 10mm fan boys complaining for years about SA not jumping into the game, and they finally listened.
I鈥檒l give the M&P 10mm a good chance. It鈥檚 been ordered and heading home to it鈥檚 new home soon. 馃槑馃憤馃徎

Hopefully they offer more models soon.

I want one, but DO NOT want to pay extra for a factory optics cut or factory 3 dot sights.

I prefer having u notch black sights and an optics cut that is not one size fits all (that requires plates) but actually made to fit the optic. Starting with a base model is cheaper in the long run to get set up correctly.

I hope it works out for you; I look forward to the range report. Probably the only other 10mm I'd be interested in at this time is a SIG P320...not holding my breath.

The sights almost seem designed to snag. I'd still like to take one for a test drive.

I'm disappointed with its size. For me, this 4" should have a shorter barrel, as my intended use is as a "pack gun". I want a 10mm with as small a footprint as possible. Why didn't they at least match the size of the G29 & XDM Elite?

Then add 5 more rounds to the M&P.
And I own Gen 3 and a Gen 4 G29鈥檚.
So no Glock hate here at all.
As well as Gen 2,3 and 4 G20鈥檚.

Not sure what your point is... the stats back up that the XDM is smaller.
As to the capacity, the XDM can run a 15 mag.

But why have a 4" when the compilation offers less than 4"?

3.8鈥 vs 4鈥濃.meh. BFD.

And put that 15rd mag in the compact, and suddenly it鈥檚 bigger (taller) than the M&P.

Additionally鈥here鈥檚 a lot of folks (yours truly being one of them) who are not fans of the XDm series鈥hey feel clunky, top heavy, and just don鈥檛 work (and this comes after owning a couple鈥).
