Default M&P 15-22 TROUBLES

I recently purchased an M&P 15-22. I had to send it back due to be fixed the first time, and got it back this week. I went to shot it at the range yesterday and had the the same thing happen again. It's almost like the extractor falls off. So it wouldn't eject the spent brass. I've shot about 100 rounds through it and it has broke twice in the same way. I was shotting Winchester Expert HV ammo through it. Has anyone had this problem?

The extractor seems to be a very weak link in this carbine. Mine arrived in the S&W Shop this afternoon. Shed the extractor last week.

Scary to hear the extractor went missing after S&W just replaced it. Did you get two free mags with the first return from S&W?

Guess I'll wait until they actually fix these things once and for all before I buy one. :-(

I've had the same extractor failure. Sent mine back too.

Does anyone know if S&W is actually fixing the problem with a design change or are they simply rebuilding each returned rifle to the same specifications? Getting a couple of free magazines is great but I'll get tired of that real quick if I have to send it back every other time I shoot it.

When I called S&W the guy on the phone seemed to be surprised that the extractor broke again. I'm hoping that this time it will be fixed for good. I am encouraged that most people say that their 15-22 works great now. And yea i did get an extra magazine when I sent it back the first time. Maybe I'll get another free mag this time!
