I posted in november about problems with my m&p compact 9, got it back, s&w stated: replaced barrel, test fired to our standards. guess what? SAME EXACT PROBLEMS, gun jams on every magazine every 3-5 rounds with any brand/weight hollowpoint. works flawlessly with ball. i called them and they stated they fired 12rds of hollowpoint thru gun and it worked. I really doubt that. sent it back again today. I am utterly disgusted. If it comes back and doesnt work flawlessly like all my other glocks/sigs/springfield I will sell it and never buy a smith semi-auto again. I always was reluctant to by a smith and every time I have i have been utterly disappointed in terms of reliability and finish wearing after 6 months. wish I could say something else but i cant.
