CORE striker block plate & screw needed

Hi, I'm in need of a striker block cover plate and screw after a small run in with a broken allen wrench while trying to remove the screw. I ended up destroying the plate so that I could file a slot in the screw to remove it after
an EZ out wouldn't work. I've tried S&W, who said that they would send the parts 6 months ago, but didn't, Brownell's and even Apex, as a last ditch effort. Any help or suggestions of how or where I can get one would be appreciated! Thank you in advance!

Welcome to our little corner of the web!

I was going to suggest you call S&W, but it appears you have already done that, however, since you never got anything, I'd suggest you call them again, apparently the person you talked to previously has dropped the ball.

Ok, thank you for the suggestions. I sent them an email yesterday, so hopefully I will get some type of result from that. I figured that it was a factory only part, but thought that I'd try asking. I have 5 other M&Ps to use, but would really like to get that one back up and functional. Thanks again.

You don't know if you don't ask. It would be nice if we could call up some kind of magic solution, but it didn't happen.

NEGATIVE, no Torx screws on a M&P
There are no Torx screws on that pistol, they are hex, I have seen this misinformation pop up from time to time and its absolutely wrong! The owner's manual calls for a 5/64" HEX WRENCH. Mine were tight as hell, but I used a good quality set of American made hex wrenches and got mine out with no trouble. Too many people try to get those out with a cheap set of Chinese wrenches which don't fit right and are too soft, use a good quality set of AMERICAN MADE hex wrenches and there shouldn't be a problem.
