In taking my M&P apart for cleaning, after about 1,000 rounds, I took the guide rod out and the pressed in front end popped right off, releasing the spring. It won't go back in with enough pressure to contain the spring.



Is this a warranty replacement from S&W? Are they likely to just send me a new guiderod/spring assembly?



Any way to limp this together somehow for a weekend shoot?

I think you can just leave the end off of the rod; and use it like an uncaptured rod.



Call S&W, and they will probably send you a new one. The new ones screw together; so you shouldn't have a problem with it.

Does anyone make a non-captive spring and guide rod? If so where? I want to change spring weight.

Finally got around to calling S&W today. They are sending me a new rod/spring assembly -- no questions asked. Great customer service.



The good news too, of course, is that this type of failure does not cause the gun to stop running. No harm, no foul, and I will have the new rod assembly.



Thanks for all your help.
