Thank you so much. Did that come from the armorers manual?

What is the problem? Block won't go back in the frame? Don't know how parts fit together?

This might help:

Apex Tactical for good videos

Go to the Apex Tactical website for great videos for reassembly of M&P parts. Even if you don't buy their parts (which are great in my opinion), the videos are excellent. Randy Lee the Pres. does a great job explaining all the take-down and reassembly of the pistols. He also uses the right tools for the job being a Gunsmith. Note that the two roll-pins that must be driven out really need roll-pin punches to remove and install, not flat tipped pin punches, and their armorers block is very useful to hold the pistol steady when you drive the pins out.
