Hey guys it's been a while but I'm back. I've been lurking here and there and I have to ask this question.

Am I one of the "lucky ones" when it comes to the M&P? I've been reading about problems with them but I'm yet to have any. I love the full size M&P so much I just purchased a second M&P 40 serial number MPMxxxx. Plus I get two free mags from S&W. To me the M&P is the best thing going. The two M&P's I have will replace all other handguns I own, just thought I'd share, Frank.

I've got an MPHXXXX, and not one problem since I bought it 2 months ago. I had it in an Uncle Mike's nylon holster when I first got it, and the only thing I noticed was that the mag would release if I sat down with the holster on...not anything to do with the gun. I put her in a Blackhawk CQC for the time being until my leather one comes in.

Usually people who have a problem are very vocal, it just seems like there are alot of problems. My M&P's have been 100%, and I suspect the one I have on order will be the same. Doesn't matter cause Smith will fix it on their dime.

Very interesting posts so far. I posted this thread to see what people are saying now that the M&P's been out for a while. I really think any problems were corrected early on. I could be wrong on this but it seems that the problems seem more then they are. (Same posts, different forums, etc.) I really think Smith and Wesson has a real winner here. I think as they get more time under there belt they will challenge other companies for contracts, Frank.

Mine came with the front sight off-center. It shot low and left. I sent it to S&W and got it back in a week. It doesn't shoot low and left. I thought their service was outstanding. It has fired every brand of ammo I've fed it without fail. I haven't seen any excessive wear when I field strip it. I don't know what it will be like as the fired round count increases, but I'd be very surprised if I started having problems with it. So far I haven't had one failure to load, fire or eject.



I don't believe that mechanical reliability is praiseworthy. I expect that. If S&W is really going after the LE and military market, they have to be reliable. Mine does what it's supposed to do and seems to be backed up with excellent customer service.

No problems with my MP40. Just 400 rounds down the tube so far but it has been perfect. I really like this gun....I even sold my Glock 22 to get it and have never regretted the choice. There are some recurring problems with some guns (mostly early ones) but they seem to definately be in the minority.

"Lucky" ones? I'm still very pleased with mine being troublefree with 850 rounds of many brands and types of ammo. Not a hitch so far with feeding or ejecting.

I had some minor issues on my part when I first got the gun with it shooting low, but I tried blacking out the rear sight dots and I'm hitting the bullseyes from 20 yards without problems now! Oh, I finally did the trigger job with the instructions hosted by Burwell gunsmithing's site. Been to the range every weekend since I picked the pistol up and also clean it thoroughly after each trip to inspect for any abnormal wear and tear. I'm starting to use range reloads often and this is still getting expensive..........That's about the only drawback to owning one of these M&P's.
