Default Brand New 9 M2

Just got home from LGS with a new M&P9M2.0, 5" in tan. Just bought it on sight after handling it and before doing any research. It just felt wonderful in my hands and I liked the trigger well enough.

My Smiths have always been revolvers, except an M39 back in the early 70's and a AR15 Sport, and my autoloaders have been SIG for a long time. I went in to look at a SIG 320 and the M&P just spoke to me.

Then, since I have no 9mm ammo until an expected shipment arrives next week, I decided, in backwards fashion, to research it now after already purchasing it.

All the reviews were great until I got to this forum and saw a post on another thread about a PD scrapping a large bunch of them for poor quality and malfunctions. Sort of rained on my parade. But I will withhold judgment until I get to shoot it. It still looks and feels great to me so I am hoping for the best. Nothing that feels this good can really be bad.

Most of us have found out M&P 2.0 guns to be reliable and durable. Mine certainly has been. If it makes you feel better search on Sig 320 and accidental discharge.

Thanks Dave, that does make me feel better about my MP, and also badly for the folks that have that issue.

My 9mm 2.0 compact has run flawlessly from the first shot. I wish it had a larger beavertail. I have large hands and can get some slide bite on occasions.

My M&P 9mm has had zero malfunctions and zero poor quality.
It is very accurate, and for range ammo loves Winchester 124 grain NATO.
Here it is on top, bottom is a .45 ACP

I'm very picky person and keep my firearms only when they are "perfect". Within middle price range I've found 3: Rock Island 1911, Walther PPQ and M&P9 M2.0.
These have been 100% reliable. Simpler -> better
I've shot A LOT of other brands and mostly they screwed up something...

From these 3 I like M&P the most... because how great it looks

I'm wondering how somebody can find poor quality at M&P series?
Malfunctions? I can understand that... but we should remember, that most of malfunctions are user's fault, not firearm's fault

I managed to get one box of Federal 115 gr hardball and 15 minutes at an indoor range. I did not do any accuracy testing, just shot some two shot drills at 3 to 20 yards and only shot 30 rounds. But it functioned flawlessly, handled beautifully and was as accurate with that kind of shooting as anything else I have owned. I'll do more extensive shooting later in the week if my ammo arrives but I am pleased as punch at this point. I truly love how it feels to shoot. Thanks for the encouragement guys.

I am not a bad pistol shot, I learned from my older brother who won a National Police Pistol championship back in the 70's.
But I had several M&P 40's, ( and the M&P .45 I still own) that on a good day would only group 3 1/2 to 4 inches at 25 yards.
The 5 inch 9mm will do half that consistently, with just about any ammo I've tried.

As far as some M&Ps being rejected for malfunctions, it would take some crappy feed lips and feed ramps for a 9mm to malfunction.
Between the case taper and long rounded bullet profile, 9mms are a shoe-in for good feeding.

Since the OP didn't show us a pic of his new M&P, I'll shamelessly put up another of mine:

Sig 320s not ADs but NDs.
