Racking the slide manually has little to do with the action of the slide when firing. If you think the recoil of the M&P9 is significant, you are the only one. Most have found it to be the mildest 9mm available. Maybe its the ammo you're shooting. Is it +p?tmodesto said:when I rack the slide manually it eject's perfectly - on side note the recoil of this gun is much more than other 9's even more than 40 it's like you are firing a 45 or 44 magnum
