Radetec's LED on the M&P - Part 2

I have had the Radetec SpeedShot’s for a couple of weeks now.  One is a LED display for my Smith & Wesson M&P 40 full size and one is a digital numeric display for my Beretta 92fs.  I decided to play with the Smith & Wesson M&P 40 with a LED Display first.

First thing I noticed is that when gripping the Smith & Wesson M&P, the display section of the Radetec SpeedShot touched my hand but did not affect my firing grip. The LED display on this model is smaller than on the grips for the Digital Numeric Display on the Beretta 92fs.  There was no issue holstering with this model.

While at the range, I ran a series of full and partial magazines through the gun. The firing functioned well with no mishaps.

The Radetec SpeedShot was visible in full sunlight.  I ran 200-300 rounds through the system for pistol exercises and a range qualification. It was easy to see the warning function as the rounds were expended from the magazine and I was able to easily drop and change magazines without needing to run dry or use the slide stop/magazine release.  It is truly an edge knowing your round count for any situation.

Others at the range tried the Radetec SpeedShot and the opinions were mixed by a wide margin. People who were not as enthusiastic about firearm technology felt the displays were distracting or did not grasp the tactical importance of the Radetec SpeedShot for any reason. While others who tested the LED Display found it a totally worthwhile upgrade for both training and day-to-day use.

The testing went great.  Now I just have to test out the Beretta 92fs with the Digital Numeric Display.  In the mean time, will keep testing this model out with a variety of multiple users who are both professionals and non-professionals to see how they like it.  Thank You Radetec.  It is so great to see what I had envisioned years ago finally come to life.

In the mean time, let the testing continue.
