If those are the best two options you only have, I would go with the KJW. M&P9 might be light but since its WE, I would stay away from it. Having said that, KJW will have the compatibility with TM parts as well as you can use two types of mag system. Either C02 or Green gas. Go to a local store, look at them, and have a feel for them. One is slightly slimmer than the other. It then becomes individual preference. Good luck!

Your best bet is to go to a store that has both in stock. Then try them both out see which one fits you best.

we M&P9 will wear out its sear/hammer interface and start running in full auto and not locking the hammer, its just a question of how long itll last before it goes, some will last a few thousand shots, and i've seen ones that did it out of the box

They're called priorities. Get yourself some.

My guess, is he's on a certain online store which only has those two in stock out of the hundred or so pistols listed on their site...

So what's happened is I bought the P226 and it still hasn't come into the store(2 months now).

Should I just get the M&P? If they have it in stock?

Email the company you purchased it from and find out if the P226 was out of stock and is on back order. If so then that is poor customer service as they should have contacted you regarding it is out of stock or whatever and refunded the payment. This seems dodgy dealing to me. Two months for a gun to come in? You did buy from within canada right?

I bought from a local store, they say the gun has been in customs for two months I've also been told conflicting information from different workers.

So they ordered a gun for you through their suppliers. Kind of strange for a retailer to have customs problems I think. Two months? Something is certainly odd here.

Customs problems aren't unusual for Canadian retailers. Generally you just don't hear about them because most won't pre-order guns for you.

I'm not a big M&P or WE fan, I've seen some that work fine and some that are falling apart.. KJW is generally a much better way to go.
