Slide fail to return to full forward position problem and spring issue.

Among those of you who experienced the problem of slide fail to return to full forward position with M&P 40, and this is only limited to those who experienced a problem, which type of recoil spring did you have?

Factory blue color spring or factory green color spring?

This is exclusive to people who did have a problem and with people who experienced the problem with M&P40 full size.

You need to add one that says no problem(s).

The purpose is to see which spring takes up more proportion among all M&P40 that DID exhibit that problem.

So, it would serve no purpose to add that category.

No problems here either. Is this related to the other threads where you're discussing this?

Edit: Sorry, just saw the link over there.

Good luck.

I have two Blue springs for my .40 and never had a problem, My wifes 9mm with said blue spring DID have this problem, we found it to be ammo related. If you use hot enough ammo it cycles the slide perfect (this was on a New Gun, once broken in it'll cycle anything)

The S&W M&P40 was originally designed with the 15# recoil assembly with blue spring, and has been delivered to hundreds of thousands of end users with that blue spring over the last 7+ years. It should be obvious that folks who have had a problem with their M&P40 (whether break-in, ammo, hardware, or user induced) almost invariably have the blue spring. Just because one user incidentally received something other than a blue spring in his/her M&P40 does not mean that M&P40 pistols are less reliable or prone to failure because they have a blue spring.

Edit: I find it amusing that someone posted they are having this specific problem with their M&P40 sans blue spring, making this poll statistically irrelevant. Wish I had thought of that.

Completely disagree. Based on shear number of blue springs in service vs green, blue will have more issues period. Its simple statistics. 2 more poll options should be, blue no issues, green no issues.

Blue no issues.

Maybe:

1. Blue... issues or not.
2. Green... issues or not.

Slide fail to return to full forward position problem and spring issue.

If you were to make this a meaningful poll you should have four options which are:

Blue Problems
Blue Problem Free
Green Problems
Green Problem Free

Same as KR basically but polls need separate options for each choice. I just laid it out in such a way.

That would work, but none of our suggestions are likely to fit the OP's agenda.

Blue in every M&P I've ever bought, 40 or 9... No issues.

This is exactly what I was saying... Doubt it will happen.

Appears the OP hasn't leaned anything. He's started a new thread which appears to be asking the same question. I won't even bother opening it... well, maybe after a couple/few responses.
