The safety is a solution looking for a problem. The feature was probably added to meet some stupid Kali reg.
I think the feature was actually added just because customers asked for it. Not sure though.


OP, considering your options... Especially if it's brand new, take it back and see if they'll allow you to trade it. If you bought it used, see if you can trade it in on a new one with the safety. Hope you got it for a good price if it's used, thereby negating some of the loss you'd take if you trade it in on a new one with safety.

DON'T go cutting on your slide if you're not an experienced gunsmith or have some other experience in precision metal working, or unless you're just willing to take a loss. What's easy for some is like building a nuclear reactor for others.

You don't have to cut the slide, just two notches on the frame. I still wouldn't do it though. ( especially since I just took my safety off.) Too bad you don't live in ky or I would just trade you.

My weapon is a M&P pro Series and the only way to carry a round in the chamber is cocked. Cocked with a round in the chamber and no safety in a single action only is crazy. Yes my weapon is NOT double action but is single. It sure shoots at least as well as any weapon I have fired

Thx

Huh? What exactly are you trying to say and M&Ps are double action only.

I'm beginning to think either you do not own an M&P and you are trolling or you do and have no idea how your pistol works.

The model you posted M&P9 is not the model I have. Mine is a M&P 40 Pro Series. If you go to the S&W website you can find mine listed. I have asked S&W to help and am awaiting a response from them.

Thanks

Almost.
That description is for a S&W M&P 40. Mine actually is the M&P 40 Pro Series. If you will look at that description it does not say double action only. Min cannot be fired in double action mode. According to S&W my weapon should have the following safeties:
1. Passive trigger safety
2. Striker block safety
3. Magazine disconnect.

Unfortunately my magazine disconnect safety is not functioning at the moment so S&W has asked me to return it to the factory. I am.

Please don't misunderstand I absolutely love the weapon I just didn't wish to kill myself or someone else by mistake.

Thanks for your imput though.
