Size Comparison

The M&P 9 Shield 1.0 and M&P 9 Shield Plus are very nearly the same size.

The plus has just a bit more girth, but you hardly notice it.

Where you really notice is the capacity.

10 rounds instead of 7.

This was accomplished by making the magazine a touch wider and changing the throat where the two columns become one.

13 rounds instead of 8.  The new geometry really pays off here.

Interestingly, the 13 rounder is about the same size as the first 13 rounder made for a 9mm!

The pistol it fits, though, is considerably more compact!

  1. Both of those M&Ps appear to be very similar in size to the Taurus G3 9mm as well. The Taurus magazines holding a dozen (and boy when new are HARD to load !)

    Those EDC conceal carry options just keep on coming !
