OK, if they started with MPA than mine is within the first three thousand M&P's made, I got a low number! Yeah!
Now, I just hope that it was not too low in the build that I will encounter some problems, none so far though. At least with S&W's great customer service, if I do have an issue or two, they will take care of it.
From what I've read in this thread, S & W MP's serial # must move to the next letter in the alphabet at 9,999. That makes sense to me anyway. Mine is MPB35XX bought on July 22nd, 2006. Wonder who got A0001? Probably a S & W exec. :roll:
Just picked up my new M&P 9mm and its MPF9*** and it shoots like a dream too. Have already run 35 rounds through it as soon as I got home, and after cleaning the firing pin hole to be sure to prevent light striker hits, and not a single malfnction, PERFECT, I like these M&P pistols!
Mine is numbered MPA5xxx and so far it has been absolutely reliable. I did send it back to have the slide stop (release) replaced and they had it back to me in less than 10 days. I noticed in the gun store the other day that all the new models seem to have the (new) slide stop (release).
