    Removal of the mag disconnect by North Sylva or any other company or person other than S&W would make the gun illegal for IDPA competition. Guns manufactured and sold by S&W that don't have the mag disconnect have a warning on the slide indicating the gun can fire without a magazine in the gun. The mag disconnect is considered a safety device by S&W and thus may not be removed by rule.

    Thanks for the heads up Bob. While it is true, I don't recall IDPA being mentioned in Wendall's original post.

    It's my understanding that IPSC allows it because although your modifying the safety, your emulating a gun that is allowed in production (The Julie Goloski edition)..so your not getting any advantage that the production Goloski doesn't have already. Any mod that comes from the factory is allowed.

    No it wasn't. The M&P pistols are a very popular pistol for use in IDPA and I didn't want any of our shooters thinking that because you as a distributer removed the mag disconnect the pistol would therefore be legal for use in IDPA.

    The M&P pistols can be purchased from S&W without the mag disconnect and you might want to consider this when you are importing the pistols. IDPA and iPSC are very popular shooting sports in Canada and are a market you might want to attract by offering their shooters the version that comes from the factory without the mag disconnect.

    The only major reservation that I have about the M&P is the fact that most of the M&P pistols available in Canada are equipped with a magazine disconnect.

    I will not own another pistol with a magazine disconnect, and I will not be recommending any pistol with a magazine disconnect to anyone. And many contemporary trainers say that that the removal from a firearm of anything characterized by the manufacturer as a safety device is ill-advised and is like opening a Pandora's Box, so I cannot recommend that anyone remove a magazine disconnect from a pistol that has it.

    Otherwise, the M&P - without a magazine disconnect, without an internal lock, and with the marking "CAUTION: CAPABLE OF FIRING WITH MAGAZINE REMOVED" - is a viable pistol that I can recommend.

    TF 3-09 Pistol

    Jeremy called my house a couple weeks back about my tour pistol being in and I need to get a hold of him, I was in Suffield at the time. Unfortunately my phone and internet are down until Sunday evening when the repair guys are showing up. If he can send me a message back through this forum it would be great. Also a couple of guys are wondering if there are anymore of the tour pistols available since they didn't order them last year.

    Just wonder if NS has ever imported any M&P compact model with legal barrel?

    All the M&P45c would need is a 106mm barrel. It'd sell like hotcakes (so long as it came with the little gold writing on the slide, of course).
