I have already made that offer to Todd,please wait in line.

In fact,he doesn't even have to send it to me,I'll come pick it up.


Sorry, I'll take teh second seat, the second runner-up in the event that fish is unable to complete his duties. Not that I really think that Todd will forego the opportunity beat that great pistol up! I just wonder if he's being sponsored by the ammo company or is he just doing this on his own. If he can afford to do this on his own I'd like to let him know that I am up for adoption!

I believe it was the slide that cracked.
Yessir, you are correct. Thanks.

Todd, I am really interested in your course of action (so to speak) as I just bought a new M&P9 and I really am enjoying my shooting sessions with this piece. I 've been trying about any size and type of factory ammo I can find here in my area. She shoots anything I can feed her and begs for more.....my kind of pistol!!!!! I just finished off the first 400 rounds tonite with her appetite being for 124 gr Fiocchi and believe it or not, 124 gr Blazer Brass .....13/4" groups at 16 yards off rest. Not bad for a brand new pistol. I figure after 1000 rounds she'll do that well at 25yds after I get used to that 61/4 lb trigger. So, in fact, we're both doing a similar assignment. Hopefully, you will be giving us "good" reports and also, some important tips and advise along the way.....at least, that's what I'll be looking for.......And I'll chip in at times with anything I feel is of interest to everyone. Here's to ya......Gunslinger

What happened to the last one todd? I read where you said you put 27k through it, but is it still shooting?


The slide cracked at around 22,000 rounds due to a machining imperfection. The slide was replaced by Smith and the gun is still running perfectly fine. It was my everyday carry, nightstand, teaching, training, & competition pistol up until Wednesday when I was able to test the new one with carry ammo. Now it will probably be getting returned to S&W so they can look at it.

Also, S&W gave you this pistol for this test? Is that correct?


Yes.

And MA requires a 10# trigger but you got it smithed to 6# to get it close to a standard m&p or for some other reason? Sorry for the lame questions. Just trying to clarify.


I don't live in MA, so I chose to get the gun set up that way. My first one came with standard parts and I had it modified later on. The MA trigger has a much more positive and forceful trigger reset, which allows me to shoot faster without losing contact with the trigger.

Also, I realize this isn't your intent todd, but glock and the springfield xd survive this test

http://springfield-armory.primediaou.../SPstory11.php

any possibility of that being in the works?


Nope. I'm not planning to put the gun through tests that are beyond what people actually do to their guns. Freeze it in a block of ice? Sounds cool but that's a test that any quality modern pistol is going to pass. I'm just going to carry and shoot the gun to 50k and report on its performance.

Is there a way to set up a counter for this thread to show the amount of rounds fired?? Im sure someone is geeky enough to figure a way to do that.

S&W deserves a lot of credit for helping to make this happen. They knew going in that if I had a problem, it would get reported publicly. Their confidence in the gun and support of the test says a lot about them as a company.


If S&W supplied the gun knowing that it was going to be out there on a public forum and tested to the hilt, I bet you just got one of the best "factory" M&P's ever! If you had mine you would have thrown it of a bridge!



Hope it works out ok. I loved reading the +20k thread. It's worth noting that the M&P can take quite a bit of abuse and still shoot straight and trouble free, a real work horse.

Put round #1,000 through the gun today. Zero mechanical problems to report. Sights need to be regulated, the gun is shooting about 3" high and 3" right at 25yd. Keep in mind these sights were installed by hand after the pistol was received, it didn't come from the factory off-zero. Taller front sight is on the way.



Accuracy at 25yd (avg of five 5-shot groups):
  • Federal 124gr +p HST, 1.46"
  • CCI 115gr Blazer (aluminum), 3.52"

Sounds good so far Todd!! Did you clean it before you took it to the range the first time?? Reason I ask is because when my wife brought hers home it was filthy out of the box. I racked the slide on that thing and it sounded as if it had spent the day at the beach.....very dirty. I gave it a quicky clean job.....but it must of had a bunch of "gunk" to work out still cause she had a light primer strike on the very first round....and two ftfeed within 30 rnds after. I think it blew all the stuff out cuzz the subsequent 400 rnds went fine. Do you do a "fresh out of the box" cleaning??

The manual that came with my M&P9 stated that it should be cleaned and lubed before use, due to being treated for shipping/storing. But all that gritty stuff does not sound right at all. IIRC I just ran a bore snake through and oiled the 7 points - no issues thereafter.

Its a torture test though....thought it was a valid question.

Should have left the gun alone. That way if something fails, you can't blame anything else but the gun.
