NYPD broke M&P9

A NYPD friend told me the m&p 9 fail evaluation after cracking its frame around the area of the locking block. He stated that the gun could not handle NYPD,s requirement of 10,000 rounds speer 124 grain gold dot +p.

I find it odd that the ATF and DEA guns passed and NYPD did not.

Anyone have a gun shot lots of +p?

My compact has had a lot of Speer gold dot +p 124 grain,and when I'm not shooting that,I use Winchester 9mm NATO which is supposed to be +p equivalent.Only problem I have had was the white dot fell out of front sight.

I also lost my white dot! Called S&W and they said to use Testers white model paint to fix it.

Sounds like the beginnings of another unsubstantiated rumor, like the LASD letter that made the rounds a few years back. BTW, I have pictures of a few hundred Glocks that blew up at well under 10,000 rounds, some of them in NYPD officer's hands.

More likely, somebody with a huge financial stake in NYPD signing with Glock took a hammer to the M&P test gun at 9000 rounds...

Politics... Money... HUGE Money...

Just one test sample? That's real scientific.

Back in the early 70s I was XO of an Ordnance Company at Ft Sill. I forget which, but either the 8 inch or the 175mm could be assembled with the breach block 180 degrees out. Only a couple of locking lugs mated that way. The other Ordnance company next door put one together wrong in a self-propelled. Not a pretty sight when it was fired. Army kept on using them though...

Hearsay, so no tangible proof of any kind to be shared.

On another topic, I have a talking dog for sale, who wants to buy it?
