Default M & P 15 sport 2 charging handle issue

I have an M & P sport 2. Sometimes when shooting, I eject the magazine, and when I go to eject the round in the chamber the charging handle will not disengage and I have to fire the round still in the chamber. Any ideas or suggestions on the problem?

What kind of ammunition are you firing? Sounds like the rounds are getting stuck in the chamber, usually only happens with bad hand loads.

If its factory ammo than I would call S&W customer service and they will email you a shipper to return the gun for service. If its a reload than its probably the ammo and not the gun.

That'll be the problem then, not an issue with the rifle it's the ammo, likely the case hasn't been resized correctly or the bullet seating depth is wrong, either way it's excessively out of spec to be getting stuck like that. If you want to measure the OAL, case length and neck width and post them to the thread I can probably tell you what's wrong. My advice though is to stop shooting it immediately, cases fitting this badly will likely lead to an over pressure issue when you shoot them and could irreparably damage the rifle (and you!), go and buy some factory target ammo (something like Wolf Gold is both cheap and good quality) and your problem will likely go away.
