    Played with one at NW armory. Prefer mine and after mods, it came in about the same.

    right but that's not a Shield that's a M&P 9. I have that too. I am thinking about the Shield Performance Center as the barrel Is ported and it has the

    • Ported Barrel & Slide
    • Enhanced Trigger
    • HI-VIZ® Fiber Optic Sights

    Oh ok
    So for ccw? This idea has been around for years. And it's a bad idea.

    Say in late 80s Springfield came out with the ports on a model and some guild custom smiths make some short officers with compensators on the end and featured in America Handgunner magazine.

    Boils down CQB MUZZLE BLAST. I've tested various porting types and it is bad
    And can be dam LOUD.

    It's just my opinion, the friends I shot and tested with are now well known barrel makers.

    Shuman and KKM barrels.

    Drops the impact weight of the bullet as well. Stick with the one you have. Looks cool, but also a bubblegum to clean.

    Really seems like a ploy to charge you more money for machining a few holes.

    I own two Shields. I carry one often. I honestly cant say I feel a need to have a couple extra holes. I dont know how I feel about the sights, I'd have to play with them.

    I don't mind the trigger in the Shield and I don't want a 3 lb trigger in a carry gun.

    All that said if I saw one for the same kind of money a regular model costs Id snag it just because.
