It started out of the box, it's complicated so I haven't been able to comtact s&w about it. Gonna try stripping it down and oil it back up and see! Thank everyone for being so friendly and welcoming!!Did you contact s&w? How long have you had it and when did the problem start?
This is just my opinion…. I will never trouble shoot a new Smith & Wesson. If it doesn’t feed properly; its broke. I’m not going to trouble shoot whether it’s the gun, a magazine, ammo (as long as I’m using a reasonably good ammo), or anything else. “Break in”, to me, is non-sense on a quality handgun.It started out of the box, it's complicated so I haven't been able to comtact s&w about it.

I just bought the M&P shield 380 EZ last week, and I’m having occasional stove pipe issues. The last round in the magazine stove pipes 25% of the time (150 roundS through the pistol so far).Bought my wife the new shield 2 “ez” for everyday carry. As described she can load, rack, and shoot gun with no issues....but the darn thing ejects a live round with the spent casing every other shot and somtimes flies out on ground or gets stuck in slide. I’ve tried four different kinds of ammo with same results... anyone else have this gun/ issue??:😭
Thanks for the followup post, Moldman.Mr. W
I finally got to the range last weekend. I shot about 80 rounds through it with only loading 2 rounds in the mag. I did not have any issues. I still am going to fire more before I completely say that the springs fixed it.
I'm having another issue of it shooting left. 6" left at 7 yards. To make sure it's not just me I also had a RO who is also a local sheriff and a coworker who shoots competitions on the weekends shoot it. They both had the same results as I.
Thanks for the followup post, Moldman.
At around 5 or 10 yrds, mine shot 5 or 6" to the left too. I moved the rear sight all the way to the right and it now shoots on center. It looks a little weird with the rear sight being so obviously jammed to one side, but it's what it took. There's an allen head screw under the slide to adjust it. Just take the slide off and look inside, and you'll see it.
Mine still stovepipes the last round for around 75% of the mags. I still haven't called to get S&W to send me new updated springs and followers, but maybe will tomorrow.
I joined this forum just now for the same reason a lot of others joined: THE EZ STOVE PIPE ISSUE.I am wanting to buy the M&P 380 for my wife due to her hand strength, what other choices do I have?
