Smith & Wesson M&P 9 (Full Size)
The Smith & Wesson M&P 9 (Military & Police 9mm) pistol is a renowned piece of modern engineering. This replica manufactured by VFC/Stark Arms is sublime! The polymer lower frame is exquisite, and sits comfortably into your hand, moreso when you select the most fitting backstrap! The metal slide is beautifully finished with deeply engraved trademarks.
Like its baby brother, the M&P9C, this gun is a select-fire pistol. Simply pull the slide back and toggle the switch underneath to swap between semi-auto and full auto. As on the real steel there is no mechanical safety, instead it features a trigger safety (similar to the Glock). The magazine holds 24rds and more than enough gas to empty each shot.
This is a gas powered replica, so to load the magazine you fill it from a gas cannister (hold both it and the gas can upside down), and then load it with your BB’s. Rack the slide to chamber a BB & cock the gun’s internal hammer, and you’re ready to go – the gun will fire with each pull of the trigger until empty!
As you would expect this model has an adjustable hop up allowing you to get even more accuracy & range out of your gun. Simply remove the slide, and slide the cog back towards the BBU (blowback unit), reassemble and test. Remember to only adjust in small increments to avoid jamming up the gun.
As on the real steel version, this pistol has changeable back straps allowing you to customise the gun to better suit your hand size. Simply remove the magazine, twist the end cap & remove the retainer; the back strap will now hinge off. Replace the strap with your chosen size (Small, Medium or Large), and away you go! The gun comes with 3 backstraps, and generally the Medium one is the most applicable.
