I plan to pick up my M&P 9 on Monday. The serial number is MPP7XXX. Is it possible to tell if I am getting a Revision N (or O) just based on that serial number?



Thanks!

Okay, what you need to do is just field strip the weapon, (you did make sure the chamber was clear, right?) and there should be something like "REV N" printed on the bottom of the inside of the frame, on top of the rail. Here's a few piccies...







Hope this helps.[/img]

You guys seen those Jack Links' commercials? Yeah, that's me.



Sorry to threadjack. I guess if you wanted to find what revision it is by the serial number, you could find out what serial numbers were in production when they started making the N revision. But I figure it'd be easier to just look at the frame. Just my thoughts.

My understanding is that S&W is no longer putting revision letters on the M&Ps, which is why I was hoping someone could confirm the revision by serial number.

Going back to the question posed by chilewhat, what is good better or what about RevN or later? My MPB 40 is a RevM. Please help some noobies out on this issue.

FYI, I just checked it out and my weapon has 15 dots, which I think means that it is Revision O.


15 dots, it is Revision O

A lot of ceramic manufactuers use the "dot" code...



O = 15th letter in the alphabet



So then 15 dots (or an O) would be the 15th revision and/or year of production.



So if someone has 16, then it would be P, so on, so forth.

+1 did anybody determine is there's a difference between N and the dots? I thought it was posted there wasn't and N was final they just went to dots more or less to stop people and the alphabet worries lol
