    The takedown lever will not stay down when attempting to field strip new M&P 9. Help?

    Yeah, that's a known issue. What you can do (to save sending it in) is to take a flat file and carefully file down the burr which is there on the take down lever's forward edge where the flat and rounded part meet. There are screenshots up somewhere. They should be easy to find. My M&P45 did the same and I did the "adjustment" and it worked fine from then on.

    M&P 9mm Field Strip

    Found a clip on uTube. Put the takedown lever down and then press up on the operating rod and it will hold the takedown lever down. Thanks for your suggestion.
