Tried 2 different magazines, and about 6 different kinds of ammo. I put 400 rounds through it. It got better after all this, but never solved. I ditched it for a Ruger LCP.
i've heard some of those stories. I guess I just got lucky. I was frustrated with the smith, tossed it on the table, pulled my TCP out of my IWB holster and emptied the mag. My wife and FIL were just staring at me with a blank look when I turned around.

You shot up your S&W? LOL!! I only own a .22LR in S&W Shield. It's been a good little plinker, mostly for the wife and daughter. I'll probably carry it when I go camping to shoot rodents.

I still have my "junk" Sigma .40 For a gun that gets a lot of bad press, its been problem free. Lot of range time with it over the years. A spring kit addresses the trigger issue that some people tend to complain about. I don't know what people are expecting from a handgun under $300.

I sold mine to a board member years ago. It had a lot of rounds through it and other than cheap ass Blazer ammo it worked well.

My cheapo gun now is a PT-111 I picked up for under $200 brand new. Cabela's had it on sale for $249 with a $50 rebate and they gave me the 5% military discount. It has a very strange feeling trigger but it shoots straight and other than a failure to return to battery when brand new and uncleaned it's been pretty reliable.
