    New M&P 9 owner

    Well I finally got around to it, I purchased an M&P 9.

    Quick question.

    The gun is brand new, I took the gun down to clean it, what is the blue substance on the recoil spring?

    It's probably a coating on the spring to lubricate and protect the spring from rusting.

    I don't know if S&W does this , but several other brands do.

    Congratulations on buying a great gun.

    You'll love it.

    S&W identifies different recoil springs for different models with different colors. It's paint. It's normal.

    I believe the compact is yellow, the 45, something else.

    Great choice, enjoy!

    Thanks for the replies... I was more curious as to what it was than worried about it.

    Took the gun to the range yesterday and put 100 rounds through it, LOVE it so far!!! I definately need more range time though.

    9, 40 and 357 of a size all use the same spring. The 45 is different.
