    I've been thinking about chopping the beavertail off my M&P 9 for a while. I really like the clean look of the shield and the tail on my fullsize digs in to my fat. :D So tonight I got ambitious with the dremel and sliced it off. I need to grab some fine sandpaper tomorrow and probably wet sand it down to finish it off and grab a polishing bit for the dremel, but overall I think I didn't do too bad of a job. Sorry in advance for the photo quality, not the greatest cameraman.

    For comparison, here is a normal M&P.

    You've basically replicated a compact M&P by removing the beavertail.

    The beavertail does help with recoil and sight alignment when the rate of fire increases.

    Looks good though.

    You're a brave man, cutting on the receiver. Looks good though!

    I would prefer to go the other way, like adding a beavertail to the shield. Cutting one off, is alot easier than adding one though. Nice job!

    It dose look good. And still has about as much undercut as a Glock.

    I hate beavertails. And have never been bitten buy a slide. Maybe it's just my hand size. But I get away with it.
    And I don't have thin hands. Anyways a gen 3 Glock fits me like a glove.

    I installed the HDs myself. I have a tool. They were on sale at like $160 ish I think. It's been a while. Well worth the price though. Love these sights.

    A guy at the club had a M&P 9 pro CORE he added stippling to it.
    He did it with a solder iron and it really looked good. He said he
    practiced on a garbage can lid. He had every conceivable mod to it.
    Night sights, Leupold delta, Apex flat trigger and sear kit, surefire
    laser/light. The ultimate 9mm IMHO.
