Dept.just authorized bunch of new guns. bought mp 9compact for off-duty. just sent it back to smith, put 400 rds thru it, jams with every magazine every 3-5 rounds, on everything except ball. tried different weights, brands. DOES NOT work with hollowpoints. very disappointed. especially since i sold a flawless glock 26 to get the smith. anyone else have any problems. ive never been a smith fan, but i really want to give this gun a chance, it feels so good in my hand.

What, exactly, was the failure you were experiencing?



Where was the nose of the JHP getting hung up or stuck?

compact

Hard to say why it did that, my 26 and M&P compact both have had zero problems. I think your problem is definitely not the norm, I'm sure S&W will get it resolved.

I hope this is just an anomaly, but I had the same issue today with my brand new 9c. It ran the FMJ perfectly, but would hang every few rounds on the hollow points. I ran the full box (Remington Golden Saber 124 Grain Brass Jacketed Hollow Point) of 25, 5 rounds at a time. It appeared to hang on the lip of the feed ramp. I ran a total 125 rounds thru today, I figure I will run a few hundred more FMJ over the next few weeks and see if it cleans up. I will also pick up an assortment of HP's to try.



On a side note, this baby can drive tacks and is smooth as silk to shoot!

9c Issue

Sorry to say, I have had the same experience with my 9c. FMJ ammo ran perfect, however, this gun hates HPs. I tried boxes of Federal Hydra-Shok, Federal HST and Speer Gold-Dot. All seem to hang up on the ramp every few rounds.



The only way to shoot with HPs is to slap the mag bottom hard, or give the slide a hard push with weak hand. Long story short, I sent the firearm back to S&W yesterday.



Has anyone else had this problem, sent the gun to S&W, and had the problem 100% resolved? Or should I just plan on trading the gun in for another type as soon as I get it back?



Thanks.
