Browsing the web and I see S&W has released the Shield EZ in 9mm. The .380 had great reviews but havent seen anything on the 9 yet.

Took my daughter and grand daughter to an indoor range last year that had rentals, and we tried the 380 EZ. They really liked it. A lady friend has just ordered the 9mm EZ. I will be curious how they have kept a weaker spring with the larger slide.

I'm a big s\w m&p fan.I have to compare the 9mm EZ with the m&p shield 3.1 9mm.same capacity.the shield is more compact and weighs less.the EZ has a better trigger?,rail,indicator chamber window,ambi controls,and possibly a better grip texture.both with or w\o safety with I believe the same 3 white dot sights for $100-150 more.as I say,I'm a big fan,just thinking out loud.

The EZ is not striker fired but internal hammer fired i.e. SA

I get confused sometimes but isn't that DAO?

 

Reminds me of  the Kel-Tec P-11 but heavier, larger, holds fewer rounds, grip safety and has a better trigger.

I've been playing with my old P-11 this past week... got the trigger pull down to 5#s, so far.

DAO the trigger is going to **** and fire. This, racking the slide cocks it, pulling the trigger fires it, with the slide recocking after firing.

I think the older .22s like the 422/622 had this design.

Gotcha.

Interesting!

No double strike.

Not like a shrouded hammer revolver.

 

Thanks...
