    Hi, I installed a Taran tactical base pad about 3 months ago on my Shield 9 and I just noticed the other day my gun was making a rattling noise with my safety off so I field stripped it and I noticed my ejector wiggles back and forth a little. I put a magazine in it with my Taran tactical base...

    I picked up a new Shield Plus yesterday- I had the OG Shield and currently carry the Shield 2.0 which I love. When I got home I noticed that my trigger safety (dingus) had a lot of slop in it, and depending on how the gun was oriented, it would extend fully, or do the opposite and retract a...

    I'm brand new to this forum. For my personal defense sidearm, I carry an M&P SHIELD .40 in an Alien Gear Holsters ShapeShift Modular Holster System. I've been carrying for 5 years & got started, thanks to the Emmanuel AME Church shooting. I'm going to be adding an M&P15 Sport II soon.

Does anybody know what I can do to bring it back up. Is it just replace a spring? I have the original parts...

    I've owned a few S&W revolvers like the 642, 640PD, 19-4, etc. But I've never owned a pistol - until now. The current rebate deal made me jump off the Glock Fanboy Express and pick up a Shield 9mm. I liked it so much I just ordered a second one! My GLOCK43 is now listed on GunBroker :o Don't...

    Got a new M&P Shield 9 Dark Earth. Paid $389 before the rebate. Any suggestions on an IWB holster? And what cleaning products do you use? Thanks, David IV

    Newbie: Why is my S&W M&P Shield referred to as a Luger? Should I use 9mm Luger ammo Hi everyone! I am new to shooting 9mms (started shooting just this past spring on 22s), I just ordered a S&W M&P Performance Center 9mm which I will get this weekend. I see that it is referred to as Luger...

    Typically all commercially produced firearms have horrible trigger pulls... and so most people use 3rd party manufacturers and spend a lot of money correcting the inadequacies of the gun maker... My question is has anyone replaced their stock Shield trigger with a better lesser pull trigger...

    Out of sheer boredom I attempted to reassemble my shield in the dark. I messed up and installed my recoil spring backwards, and now the plunger or piston is sticking out the front about a half an inch or so. I cannot rack the slide back far enough to manipulate the takedown lever into the proper...

    If I have a new or fully cleaned 9mm Shield, after how many rounds must I strip an lubricate it. I am a newbie and have no clue. For example, if I go to the range and fire 100 rounds, would I need a complete cleaning and lube? Should I just clean the bore after a session like that or do nothing...

    I have been lurking around for a while and decided to finally register. I was finally able to acquire a CA Compliant M&P Shield in 9mm, which I will be picking up this week. This will be my first S&W handgun, and I am very much looking forward to going shooting with it. Craig

    Hey Mr. S&W - when were you going to tell me about the possibility of an accidental discharge on my Shield if I happenned to drop it? Why do I have to read about this in the NRA November magazine? I registered my pistol with you, serial number, Email, and all. Yet I hear nothing from S&W...

    Special THANK YOU to DGM33 for letting us borrow his Shield for the photo shoot. :bow: Photographing the M&P Shield has really made me reconsider what I carry daily, which has been the S&W M&P 9 compact. When I am not carrying the 9c, I carry the Sig Sauer P238 Equinox in my pocket. This...

    I just got a new Shield 9mm and love it. When I was in the store I field stripped it using the trigger pull method, and put it back together, no problem. I went right to the range, shot it and brought it home. After I cleaned it I had a terrible time getting the slide to lock back before...

    The Market Team at Smith & Wesson Should win an award for the way they pushed this gun. I dare say they followed APPLES marketing plan of attack. Question is, is the gun any good?
