We had a discussion at a gun shop today on whether it caused any damage to drop the slide down on an empty chamber on an M&P. One person said he had seen it break a M&P.
I don't believe it.
I know with the 1911's it can, and does, cause problems but with the way the M&P is designed I don't see it causing any damage at all.
S&W gunsmiths out there what do you think ?

I never drop the slide on an empty chamber on any of my autos. It doesn't serve any purpose so even if there is only the slightest doubt it could cause damage, why do it?...you only need to drop the slide on a live round, the rest of the time you can ride it home.

No it doesn't break 'em,You Can stuff up a good trigger job and peen and wear out the parts.As Sip said there is no need to drop a slide on an empty chamber.If you have to, use snap caps or a dummy round.

I would think it would be worse to do in Australia since the gun is upside down.
