You'll know what keyholing looks like, with more practice.

Shot my first 16 years ago…first time I've had something that I thought might be keyholing.

Is keyholing more common of an issue than I think it is?

So wait, the slide stop lever doesn't work the way it should, they know it and it's unfixable? What the hell kind of product is that?

Sheriff,

Apparently there is debate; I haven't looked at the manual though.

My previous answer the tech gave me is accurate as to our conversation….Bothersome, but not enough to send the gun in alone.

Dieselbeef,

Yes that group was done in rapid succession, hence the bad grouping. Slow firing the M&P will make half-dollar size at 15 yards (better if being run by a more precise shooter than I).

TADA! Congrats

Like I said before, I don't mind the way the take down lever on the M&P works. I don't know if it was intentional or not... but the fact that when i pull the slide to the rear, the take down lever snaps back up with no intervention is awesome in my opinion.

Good luck with the gun. I hope you grow to enjoy it more now. I certainly like mine!
