    Question Question for fellow M&P owners:

    Do your M&P's make a squeaky, creaky, grating kind of a sound when you work the slide? Mine does. I think it's just the recoil spring grating against it's guide rod. Is this normal or should I try to work a little oil in there? I've never heard anyone say you should oil the recoil spring/guide rod.

    Thanks for any help.

    What is your cleaning routine?

    After cleaning put a drop of Rem oil or equivelant on the rod then check for noise.7 points require lube. It doesn't hurt the rest to have a wipe down with an oily cloth.

    I shot so much without protection in years past that what I do or don't hear doesn't matter.

    Purchased the .45 a couple months ago. I have about 800 rounds or more through the gun so far. That sound happens on my gun also. I think it's normal for the weapon, although you made it sound a lot worse than it really is haha. I've been known to put a drop of oil or two on the guide rod and spring and that doesn't seem to make too too much of a difference.

    Wow. Glad to see this thread got bumped. I'm not so much worried about the sound anymore. I think it is normal. I think I did make it sound worse than it is. It's just the recoil spring making jangly noises. The weapon has always functioned flawlessly.

    Thanks to all for chiming in.

    My stock spring is very squeaky. I ended up putting a DPM spring in it, although it made no difference to the felt recoil for me, it did stop the squeak.
