M&P C.O.R.E.

I can't find the post, but I swear in the past I mentioned it wouldn't be long before more than FN was doing this...

Smith & Wesson announced a new series for the M&P pistol line, the C.O.R.E., or Competition Optic Ready Equipment. In other words, an M&P9 or 40 (standard and 'L') with tall sights and a cutout for various Micro Red-Dot sights.
I haven't had a chance to shoot a pistol equipped this way, but I'm very tempted to pick up a Ruger 22/45 with a rail when I get home to drop a Primary Arms MRD on and see how it works for me. I like the idea, and can see it being pretty sweet for a duty/defense pistol if you can train yourself to use it.
