MPLxxx on my 9c. My gun had to go back to S&W. The slightest engagement of the mag catch button would release the mag. Very disappointing particularly in a gun that was purchased for carry. Also, it is a problem that doesn't always show up right away since it involves what appears to be a gradual wearing away of the mag catch.. Some have reported dropped mags/weak mag release button at 100 rounds, 300 rounds, in excess of a thousand rounds, etc. As such, it's something you have to keep a close eye on. The factory recognizes they have a problem and is trying to come up with a fix. Suffice to say if you are having a problem with dropped mags, you are not alone Let S&W deal with it. They will.

My problem really became noticeable after 600 rounds. My mags never dropped while firing because I am LH and I think a LH grip prevents it from happening (if the mag release button is installed for RH use). However, the slightest engagement on the mag button would drop the mag.

Seems like it should be an easy fix.

It's hard to understand why this is such a problem for S&W.

Then again what do I know?

Do they all do it eventually?

MPL51XX. Total of 8 issues. Called S&W, they promptly emailed UPS next day air label, shipped to them. 2 weeks later as of yesterday, received gun, same next day air.



S&W replaced barrel, slide stop, and mag release. They also did a complete update of the pistol, inspected/tested.



S&W service is top notch. I will test-fire it this weekend.

I had the mag drop issue, pitted bore, slide locking back with one round, difficulty ejecting a love round, FTF's, FTE's, stripped frame tool.



S&W took care of it all. Nice folks!

MPL7XXX - 700 rounds

Sending Back to S&W today. Occasionally the slide will lock back with 1 round stilll in the mag.

The pin behind the take-down lever is "walking out". The mags have dropped 2 times with out pressing the mag release.
