M&P Pistols Shotgunning Ammo

    Chris Costa posted this on his Facebook page.

    The past few handgun classes I’ve taught I’ve seen a quality issue with Smith an Wesson M&P handguns. This is the 3rd gun in 9mm I’ve seen shotgun the target at 7 yards. Barrels are breaking apart at the crown an numerous malfunctions. No mods were done to the weapons an all 3 were newer weapons with less than 500 through them, so keep a watchful eye.

    Ammo was a combination of Fed, CCI, and PMC.

    No pictures of the actual guns but here is the target that it shot at.

    This is obviously not an epidemic but something to look out for. I am sure S&W will fix the problem. Have any of our readers had these issues?
