Don't enlarge the pics, to distorted. The small pics show it, it just looks like it's blurry cause of the stamps.

Thanks for the pics, I now see what you're talking about. But seriously, do we need three threads running at the same time?

I hate to say it, but where was S&W's Quality Control when that gun was inspected? Obviously someone was asleep at the wheel or they are just spot checking production guns....not good. Personally, I wouldn't have bought it....and becoming a "Collector's Gun" is a matter of opinion.

I think you just need to wear your 3-D glasses. It'll look way cooler that way!

Hang on to it, in a few years it'll be worth a lot.

My question is why would they even let something like that out of the factory?

Do they not have a QA dept that checks for these things?

Its cool nonetheless though.

Ask yourself the question: Given the choice between a normal Smith and Wesson 40 caliber compact pistol and an obviously defective Smith and Wesson 40 caliber compact pistol, which would you choose? I really don't think that the strange inverse economics that applies to defects in purely cosmetic items like postage stamps and coins and other currency applies to something that derives its primary utility from its reliable operation. You might have gotten lucky if there had been some historical significance that could attach to the production of this pistol. As it stands, I don't think that Smith & Wesson's having one of their QA inspectors show up drunk on a Tuesday is on a par with the discovery of a Mauser in the Texas Book Depository Building some years ago.

I would agree, that looks almost as bad as your pictures. I would send it back

That gun had to go through many sets of hands to get to the dealer that way. My goodness, it was treated, assembled, and then shipped

I wonder what S&W has to say about that?



...Sorry, we goof!

...Oh, is that where the demo went? Thanks for sending it back.

...Our QC guy has double vision and forgot his glasses that day.

...Don't you like our new logo?

...Just kidding.

...Congratulations, you're the winner of our...special contest. Just send in the pistol and we will send you some really cool stuffs (i.e. stickers).



Seriously, what the heck are they doing? I can understand the mag drop issue and even some other internal problems, but this is just too much. You would have to be blind to miss something like that.



IMO, you should send your pictures (take some better ones) to the publishers of _____________ (insert gun magazine name). S&W needs to get off their @ss and do some serious internal investigations/restructuring.



Don't get me wrong, I really like my M&P (actually, one of my favorite), but I'm just a little concern that a mistake that bad would actually leave the warehouse. Not good!!!
