M&P .40 compact.

Postby DONT TREAD ON ME » Tue Oct 27, 2009 12:22 am

Ladies,
My wife owns a M&P .40 compact. I am wondering do they make pink replacement grips for this gun?

We really support the breast cancer awareness and if they had some with the pink ribbon that would be perfect but pink will do just fine.

Thank you all for your help!

M&P9 - JG
I'm thinking the pink backstrap is available separately, but I can't find it on S&W's website at the moment.
(If it is available, it will fit your M&P40 as that's the same frame as the M&P9 pictured.)
Note the ribbon on the slide. I've seen one where that was colored in with pink. I think that was on Julie's personal gun, but it wouldn't be difficult to do.
(The JG in the model name means this is Julie Goloski-Golob's signature pistol.)

EDIT: Woops. This is the full-size M&P. Not sure if I've seen the pink for the compact M&P or not.

S&W don't make any other color backstraps for their compact M&Ps. I have sent them emails requesting they consider offering different colors - yellow, pink, blue...

I would suggest that you do the same. The more interest there is the more apt they are do this. In the mean time there are some very good plastic paints out there. I haven't tried any yet but I am thinking about it.

Do consider the Teflon coating as an option. I had the slide of one of my guns done in red. It has held up quite well. If you send me a PM I know of somepone that does a lot of work on polymer frames. He might be able to do a pink grip.

Speed Shooter Specialties has aftermarket backstraps for M&P pistols I didn't see pink. Saw some with a great texture though. http://speedshooterspecialties.com/catalog/index.php

I decided to try some Krylon "fusion" spray paint on one of my spare back straps. I bought some bright blue and sprayed two coats it looks great and even better on the gun. Fusion is available in a number of colors including pink. About $6 a can at Ace Hardware and a little cheaper at WallyWorld.

Midway has replacement back straps if you should want a black one too.

I think you should buy her the M&P JG that's what I got my wife. :thumbs2:

No! She won't let you get another pistol! Wait were you going to get her another pistol in addition to her compact or to replace it?

E D.45 you don't understand, Get her the M&P JG to go along with her M&P .40 compact. Besides, a portion of the purchase price goes to Breast Cancer Awareness.

Never, never, try to take a woman's favorite pistol away from her - - - You'll be sleeping with Fido if you do. :evil2: "rlol"

Dale from Grip Reductions, the guy I mentioned in a previous post does do pink. He does four shades! She could have pink camo done to her gun.

He has given me permission to post his contact info.

NO NO NO NO, that is her first pistol. She cannot get rid of it.

I want to get her one to GO WITH IT.

sorry for the confusion.

Im all for buying more guns! Im not to big on getting rid of them tho, I already paid for them...I want to keep them :mrgreen: .

She just insists that she does not need a second gun :nono: .
