I just got a M&p 40 last month and the slide release is super tight. I just pull on the slide to rack a round.

As a matter of fact, Glock pistols are designed to be released with the over hand grab, not the slide catch. Since many duty pistols have taken design cues from glock, it pretty much works with them as well. Only gun I couldn't chamber by grabbing the rear of the slide was a px4 storm....so I sold it.

The Slide Stop on my M&P .40 Full size started out very stiff. After 500 rounds and a good clean and lube it loosened up. Its still very stout, but is much easier to manipulate. It will most likely break in over time, or you'll just get used to it.... maybe a beneficial combination of the two

As mentioned, It's a slide stop, not a slide release.

Once it breaks in it will release with one thumb

On my shield, the take down lever is harder to manipulate than my slide stop

Just checked my M&P40, the slide stop is very difficult to release with my thumb. Never knew that cause I always rack the slide as others have mentioned. It's a good habit.

I am wondering about cocked and locked on aM&P shield. When I carry my 1911 it is the best way

So on my new m&p9 I can't use the pulling the slide back technique. I've tried and it won't slide forward unless I disengage the slide stop. Mine is super stiff as well hence why I tried pulling the slide but for some reason it won't ram home without pressing the slide catch.

How many rounds have you put through it?
Try putting 100 rounds of some 145ish grain ammo. That seems to break in a 9mm pretty fast.
My slide stop on my shield was a bear at first, as was the take down lever.
