    magazine feeding problems with my M&P

    I was doing some shooting yesterday, white box winchester .40's 165g
    each time I would shoot nine shots, and slide lock. I would eject the magazine and one round would remain in the magazine. I thought this was a fluke but it happened three more times in the same day. Also once, upon re-inserting the magazine, the slide released on it's own... this gun is only a few weeks ago, less then 5 magazines through it. its the compact version. This problem happened with both the flat-bottomed magazine and the pinkie grip magazine.

    I would call S&W and see what they say. If you have to ship it back to the factory they will pay for it. Good luck.

    How can I get my S&W handgun repaired?

    called today, they're sending me a box to ship it out in. that was easy. a little too easy maybe. hopefully they'll fix it. researched this problem a bit and found its pretty common.

    Ditto here with my 40c. Just got it back from smith with a note saying barrel modification done. Haven't been to the range yet to check it out, just hope it is fixed, I don't like putting my guns in a box to ship away. And that is a bit unnerving to slap a mag in and have the slide release on its own.

    exactly. I spoke to the guy that gave me the NRA course, he's telling me I should get a 9mm for my first gun. He says with the correct defensive ammunition it can still have " stopping power " the .40 in this compact is pretty jumpy. I wonder if its possible to change the uppers out for a 9mm ? and new magazines. the trigger is a bit strange on this gun. I dont like that hinge

    I just shot the M&P .40c Saturday and it did not feel jumpy at all to me. What impressed me most is how accurate it is.
