    Anyone having any problems with these? I just got the .45 version recently and noticed it wont allow me to load a mag with the slide closed (not locked back) which is kind of annoying, and i noticed it is also shooting low, about 4-6 inches from where i am aiming consistently ...

    I have an M&P 9 and can say that it's harder to load with the action closed, but it's not impossible, it just requires a bit more force.

    However, as the previous poster said, if you think you're having problems with your weapon then the prudent thing to do would be to consult an expert, and you probably don't get much more expert with this particular pistol than Smith and Wesson.

    More than likely, there is nothing wrong with the gun. The M&P needs to be broken in a little. It will be difficult to load the mag the first few times, but eventually it will become smooth. I own 4 of them, they are all alike.
