So they are calling the fix for a problem that has resulted in a recall a "Free Upgrade" That's marketing for you
BTW. Its the 380 Shield EZ which is completely different than the Shield which has been around since 2012

Smith & Wesson is also reminding owners to follow the warnings in the owner’s manual that advise never using Plus-P (+P), Plus-P-Plus (+P+) or reloaded ammunition in the M&P380 EZ. Always use factory-manufactured ammunition produced to SAAMI specs.
That is funny, because almost all of the +P ammo I look at are right at the SAMMI spec for standard pressure loads and velocity. Most +P+ is around 5% higher
Most ammo manufacturers, excluding Buffalo Bore seem to load at around 5-10% lower pressure & velocity than the SAMMI specs call for. I guess they're trying to avoid being sued over an over pressure ammo load.

The old standard 'never use handloaded ammunition'. I don't shoot anything but handloads...
