This is not a 9mm vs .40S&W :!:



All calibre preferences aside what version of the gun has had less technical issues? Which is more reliable?



please be 100% objective



thanks

The M&P came out in .40 cal first, so I'm sure that has something to do with early issues, as the 9 didn't exist early on.



Ciao,

The fullsize 9mm have had less problems than the fullsize .40. The issue being dropping mags. So far both the .40 and 9mm compacts seem to be running fine.


Yep.

Hmmm. I thought that the early 9mm had significant FTE issues, which were not seen on the 40. Has my memory failed me again?

You are really splitting hairs either way. I would just buy the model I wanted, in the caliber I wanted. Most of the M&Ps are running 100% out of the box. If you happen to have a problem, S&W will fix it for free.

I agree, I have ran 2 M&P's to death and no problems save the light primer strikes fixed by the 2/3 generation striker.



I love these little pistols. They are both MPA series guns

I staarted dropping Mags from my 40 last week and couldnt figure it out until yesterday when i thought i would change my grip and it stopped dropping mags. There was a young kid there showing interest in my 40 so i let him shoot it and he kept hitting the mag release with his thumb. so i was quite happy to it was not a technical difficulty just me dropping the mag.
