I was cleaning my M&P 40, and lost the dang cap that goes over the spring under the rear sight. Anyone know where I can get another? Brownells doesnt list it as a seperate part.







And yea, I know....dummy me <hangs> I have had this apart several times in the past with no problems.

I always work on that part inside a plastic grocery bag, that way the bag can catch it!! Call S&W customer service!

Thanks for the info, I ordered a couple just in case this happens again.

The customer rep I talked to said there wasnt a part number for these peices, he usually just grabbed a handful off of the assembly line and mailed them out as needed.

Just curious...why did you feel compelled to clean the plunger, etc.?


I clean each and every part of my weapon after a day at the range. The only thing I have not been able to clean is the extractor assembly, as the damn pin is being a stubborn *******.



And to answer your question more specifically, the plunger was spotless before I went to the range. 400 rounds of WWB, and it was dirty as hell, as was every part of the weapon.



I do this for all my guns, they get fired, they get completly cleaned, except for my varmit rifle, that one gets a snake through the barrell after every critter encounter, and gets a total cleanup either every 6 months or after shooting a a box or two of rounds.



Maybe I take it too far, but I always keep my tools spotless.

I'm just not sure removing the rear sight, which is a friction fit, is such a good idea. I also Loctite my sights in place after zeroing so it wouldn't be prudent for me to do it anyway.

I would have to agree that taking the rear sight off that frequently could cause you a problem in the future.

When I took the armorers course the M&Ps were provided. Guess how sloppy the rear sight was. :wink:

Sloppy from repeated removal and re-installation.
