I don't want to beat a dead horse, but I have a mp 45 and had a mp9fs but got rid of it because of accuracy issues. So I need help from all mp 9fs owners. How many of you have the new models and are having problems?

I have new and old models with no issues. You should have called S&W about yours. I'm sure they would have made it right.

I have three FS 9's, including one made in '07.

No problems, accuracy or otherwise, with any.

You guys are definitely right, should of gave s&w the chance to make it right. I had the shotgun pattern in the last gun. I just thought no matter what s&w did it wasn't going to get as accurate as I wanted it to be. I was actually thinking of going with the 40 s&w even though I'm not a huge fan of that caliber. If enough people chim in with no issues, i might give the 9fs another shot.

Rick M. If your mom shoots a 9fs, I'll take a note from her.

This is 20 shots from 25 yards with a M&P 9mm, using a Xtreme 115 gr plated bullet. The second target at the same range using 115 gr Ranier 115gr HP bullets.

G56 nice shooting. So I'm guessing your gun doesn't have any problems with flyers at all. At least it doesn't look like it.

No accuracy problems with my wife's FS Pro Series 9. It dates back to 2012.

What people consider accurate is subjective. I have and M&P 5" Pro 9mm and a Compact 9mm. After trying many brands and weights, I found American Eagle 147 grain to hold the tightest groups; 3-5" off a bench, at 25 yards. This is not good enough for me. Apex will finally be introducing their new M&P barrels within a week or two and they should considerably reduce group sizes. There will be a semi-drop-in, that you can do in a half hour or less and a gunsmith version, that takes a little more work.
I shoot competition events and always wonder when I'm just over the perforation and an extra point down, was it me or the gun. With the new barrel, I'll know for sure.

A few minor flyers in there, nothing significant, and the flyers I did have could have been me. One interesting observation is both those targets, shot 3 months apart and using different brands of bullets, 20 shots on the first one and 30 shots on the second target, they both have that flyer at about 10 o'clock in the 8 ring, that's quite a fluke.

This.

I have four of them. Two in 9MM and two in 40cal. I did go with the 1 - 10 twist barrel in my 9MM PRO. The barrel was $85Cdn from the S&W Cdn Repair Center. It may have made the gun shoot the 125 gr bullets better. To be honest I really could not tell.

My FS was bought when they first came out and were available up here. It and my Pro had the 1 - 18 twist barrel. The FS still has the original barrel and seems to shoot where the sights are aiming which sometimes is where I want the bullet to go.

All the new guns in 9MM use the 1 - 10 twist now and have for a couple of years. Go for it!

Take Care

Bob
