This is funny. Everyone is posting as if S&W isn't lying about their product.
Gun manufacturers must and do take liability concerns very seriously. As Mr. Tuttle states, S&W has a Sterling reputation and they have been in business for a very long time.
I find it curious that you would even suspect them of not being up front about the cause of the failure. There is some integrity left in this Country, precious little.......but it is there.
