Other than frame textures and colors. I think there are only 4 versions. 9mm/.40 cal, with or without manual safeties on each.

And the Tritium sight one...

The only thing I don't see is the Performance center ported one with Tritium sights combo.

The Ameriglo CAP sight is tritium and a nice eye catching fluorescent bright paint..

Yea you could built your own I suppose. But I expect they would eventually put the porting and tritium into a package at some point. They don't say who makes their tritium ones either.

S&W did come out with their performance center shield this year. Only reason I didn't buy one is because it comes with the safety.

Edit: I believe it only comes in the fiber optic front site.

Your right. Thats another combination they should do. But then again,... how effective is the porting? Often porting is simply just louder. And cool looking.

How do you like the CAP sights? I'm trying to decide between them and the Trijicon HD sights for my new Glock 19.

I have actually changed over my Glock 22, Glock 27 (which had triton night sights on it, dimming) and my Shield If That tells you anything The only difference is that the Glocks have the Orange outline and my Shield has the yellow. I prefer the orange but the yellow is all the offer in the Shield. I like the ones with the front sight tritium and the line on the rear sight.... I dontblike have tritium on rear sights that are the same color as the front..


These are on my Glocks

I had a Shield for years and it was one of my carry guns. I had a problem with the clip seating and when I saw the youtube about that the Shield was traded fast.The replacement is a Glock 43 which carries better and I like the grip better.

The problem with the Shield's magazine not seating is because the user did not do maintenance on it and the mag release gets a little rusty. A simple shot of lube every month or two will keep that issue from developing.. But a Glock is a nice weapon too..

The m & P Shield 9 MM is my personal carry weapon. I really like mine so far. I bought it shortly after it first came out. Paid $449 for mine. Glad to see the price has dropped.

I've had my .40 Shield for a couple of years now and it's a pretty decent pistol once I changed a few things on it.

I saw numerous post about how good the trigger was. Umm....... Mine was 7lbs and felt like the plastic was flexing on the hinge. Terrible trigger compared to other guns I own.

I highly recommend the Apex trigger parts. I installed their solid trigger and Sear only, and reduced the pull down to 4.4lbs. It can get even better if you install the USB. I also added a set of Tru Glo sights that really helped when shooting outdoors. The Pearce mag extensions also made a world of difference with having somewhere to place my pinky. All that said, it does conceal away nicely in a fox holster.

I have about an 8 lb trigger on my Glocks and my Shield trigger is about 5.5 I believe and it is not real gritty.. mine is not very old so maybe they have made a few tweaks to it? Mine is a 40 with no safety...

I originally went in to purchase the bodyguard. I'm pretty slight in stature so the small size of the bodyguard was nice but I don't particularly enjoy shooting the .380 round.

After comparing both I opted for the shield.
I have had a bodyguard as my day to day gun for about two years. I am ready to move up to the shield. One thing I do really like about the bodyguard though is you can get belt clips for them.
