All M&Ps are lifetime to the original owner.

From the S&W website:

In the design of the M&P, we considered the needs of military and law enforcement from every conceivable angle. No other polymer pistol offers this combination of versatility, durability and safety. ALL BACKED BY OUR SMITH & WESSON LIFETIME SERVICE POLICY.

There is the spelling thing. How about warranty. All S&W handguns come with a lifetime warranty. Even if you're not the original owner. Smith does a great job of backing up there products.

I just bought a M&P40C today and called S&W this evening. The support agent kindly took my name and address and said he will have it in the mail tomorrow. :)

Not to pick nits....but the warranty is one year... but S&W has a service policy under which they will do repairs for the lifetime of the original owner... and in practice they do it for subsequent owners.

This seems to me to be a "lawyer issue" of wording... warranty means something legally and service policy means something else. Basically I would say the wording simply means they can discontinue the lifetime warranty should they find it necessary to do so... if they had a lifetime warranty there would be contractual issues with dropping the lifetime warranty.

FWIW

cxm, great way to explain the difference. After reading your post it's much more clear. I always thought it was a Lifetime Warranty. I've owned probably close to 20 S&W handguns over the years and have had little need to send a gun in for repair but when I've had questions or ordered anything from S&W they have gone out of their way to help me. John, how in the world do you get rust on a gun made of stainless steel coated with Melonite and has a plastic frame. I've owned an M&P 40 since they first came out and my gun is carried on duty so exposed to the elements. I've yet to see any rust and of all the guys I work with carrying them, no reports of rust. I swear there are people who throw out stupid statements just to start a rumor or see how far the claim goes. I wouldn't believe it unless I saw it on my own gun.
