Hey all, I have been checking out the site for a while and decided to join. It's a great source of info and everyone seems to have great insight on shooting and pistols in general. I purchased an M&P 40 earlier this year and just recently picked up a M&P 45. I love the 45 and the 40 shoots great but Ihave the aformentioned mag drop problem. The 40 has been back to S&W twice and the have only replaced the mag catch. The first time I got it back it failed after only 150 rounds. I have 350 through it since the seconed repair with no problems.
