M&P Shield Safety Alert/Recall
#1
Quote:Smith & Wesson has identified a condition where the trigger bar pin could damage the lower trigger in certain M&P Shields in a way that may affect the functionality of the drop safety feature of the firearm, potentially allowing the pistol to discharge if it is dropped.

Any unintended discharge of a firearm has the potential to cause injury, and we ask that you STOP USING YOUR PISTOL IMMEDIATELY UNTIL IT HAS BEEN INSPECTED AND, IF THE CONDITION IS FOUND, REPAIRED.

This Safety Alert applies to all M&P Shield pistols manufactured before August 19, 2013. We believe this condition is largely limited to recently manufactured M&P Shield pistols. However, out of an abundance of caution, we are asking all consumers of all M&P Shields manufactured before August 19, 2013 to immediately inspect their pistols for this condition.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

The sr9c is not a single stack is it? It would be more like the m&p 9c? I left Glock for the 9c and never looked back.

The ruger is a different gun all together.

The shield was a very nice gun but has been plagued by mishaps. Hope smith gets act together on this. I want my stock to go up.

So this is the shield only? I have a M&P 9c.

If you are going to send a firearm in for repair call smith independent of having a dealer ship on your behalf.

I work for an FFL and it has been a nightmare getting a single shipping label from Smith to send pistols back. The Smith representatives over the phone even stated that they are immediately sending labels to individuals but dealers have to submit extra documents and then wait for Smith to 'get in touch' with shipping information. I've even got a pistol SOLD to a customer that Smith is delaying a label on solely because we are holding it.
