Did S&W fix the 9 mm accuracy problem ( full size)
I been reading about this on some other fourm.
I pick up a 2014 full size 9mm seems ok at
7/ 10 yards but any gun should be fine at that
Distance . That said I did shoot my shield as good.
I read the newer ones are better but
What's considered new?

Yes I need to shoot it at a longer distance .

If yours was manufactured in 2014 it has the new barrel so it is fixed. I cant remember the exact date that they new barrels were implemented.

You are good to go. You have the newest barrel. You probably also have the latest trigger.

All four of mine are very accurate (including three FS ones), the oldest of which was bought in July of '07.

If you're having accuracy problems; it's likely not the gun.

I don't know what you guys consider "fixed", but I just bought a 5" Pro with an Apex competition trigger kit installed, made in June of 2015. I've tried Winchester, Federal, PMC and others, all 115 grain and off a sandbag at 25 yards, groups run 4-5". My M&P 22FS will shoot 2.5" or less, groups all day. Not at all happy. Going to have to try heavier bullets.

Unhappy

I bought a used 2012-produced M&P9 recently. I am assuming that the barrel is original. It is plenty accurate.
