Here I give a quick photo comparison featuring the newly released (about time) VFC S&W M&P. I compare it with the previous VFC M&P compact and the earlier WE Toucan (Big Bird). As the only regular stock WE pistol I have is in the middle of a transformation, I am using the 'First-Batch Custom' limited release HK3P for comparison shots. These photographs are only intended to give a quick look at the cosmetic differences between the VFC & WE, as I wouldn't have time to do a full scale performance review. The barrel to slide fit must have been a tight fit initially as the barrel chamber shows sign of in-factory testing, the clear parts on the frame are slightly more textured on the VFC. The front sight is quite loose as the dovetail cut-out is a lot bigger than the base of the front sight, but it is tightened from underneath so doesn't wobble from side-to side. The mag-release is smaller than the WE version so may be compatible with RS (?) the ambi slide-stops are more flush with the frame than the slightly angled WE version. The back-strap lock is smaller on the VFC the same as the RS, and the mag base is more accurate in detail. There are probably a few other finer details like the roll-pins, but you should be able to see them for yourself in the photos. Most of these differences would have been noticed already on the VFC M&P compact. VFC M&P and M&Pc. VFC M&P (659g) and HK3P M&P (703g). VFC HK3P VFC HK3P VFC - maybe the only part that is inferior is the takedown lever which looks cheap, even compared to WE ! A shot comparing barrels, the VFC compact version and the HK3P have RA Tech steel barrels, the HK3P barrel having a more blued finish. the chamber indicator hole is smaller on the WE version, and the VFC full-size barrel-chamber has marks from the factory. A look at the rear-plates, the VFC being more favourable to the RS, I'm not sure if the seam-marks are present on the RS (?)
