New S&W M&P 15-22

Well yesterday I decided to buy me a new S&W M&P 15-22. I got it at about 10am. I went to shoot it at about 2 that afternoon. This thing was shooting fairly accurate and had very few firing problems at about 200 rounds. I was very impressed. I put it back in my truck about to head home, but my little cousin drove up wanted to see it. I pulled it back out and loaded it. I fired about 10 rounds and then it happened. It fired out of battery.

I'm sitting now at the airport about to go to work and will be gone for three weeks. So, it looks like it will have to lay broken at my house til I come back home and can see about sending it to S&W. Very aggravating to happen on a gun I'd only had for about 5 or 6 hours. I have some pictures on my camera, but can't seem to find my card reader so I can load them to my computer. It looks like the bolt and extractor will need some repairs.

Just thought I would share a FML sotry.

I also thought I put this in the rimfire section, my bad.

firing out of battery not cool. Send that mutha back to S&W.

I wish the gun mfg's would focus on quality more....what is the big rush...

Sorry you are having the trouble...You might mention the forum in your note and let Smith and Wesson know we expect them to tighten up.

I sent S&W an email on a revolver a few weeks ago and got what I'd call a terse reply...My last 2 revolvers have subsequently been Rugers
You might wanna read this...it is depressing...I've always been a fan of S&W...especially their revolvers...Of course the following is just one man's opinion...

I wish you well in dealing with S&W...fingers crossed for a good report
