  1. help! jagged barrel?

    MP Compact Pistols
    :unsure:So I'm really new to handguns, I actually just bought my first pistol last week. (m & p 9c) I love it so far, ive put around 400 rounds through it, and im not very accurate but I assumed I'll get better with practice. I was just looking over it a little bit ago and I noticed something...
  2. New M&P9 with Accuracy Issues

    MP Full Size Pistols
    I know this was an issue in the past, but from what I had read this has been fixed. I purchased a FS M&P9 in March, had an Apex trigger & sear kit installed and took it out to shoot yesterday. It was horrible. All over the paper. So, I thought, maybe I'm just having a bad day. Pulled out my...
  3. FS 9mm accuracy

    MP Full Size Pistols
    Just wondering if anyone else has noticed accuracy improvements from swapping to a factory threaded barrel? I have 2 FS M&P 9mm pistols: 1 is about 5 years old, the other is about 2.

    MP Ammunition

  6. 2012 M&P FS 9mm Twist Rate

    MP Full Size Pistols
    I've seen a lot of people trying to figure out what the new 2012 production barrel's twist rate is. The original barrels use to be a slow 1-18 twist rate (5 groove). I was wondering this myself seeing all the accuracy talk so I contacted Smith/Wesson and this is what they wrote back with the...
  7. Is Your Gun More or Less Accurate After Cleaning?

    MP Reference
    Have you paid close attention to accuracy after cleaning? I'm not talking about a leaded barrel. Just normal GSR. At my range, it's about 50 / 50 more accurate to less accurate. I notice that I'm less accurate.:shock:
