Argyle you said a strange word "manual". What is this so called "manual"? Haha.

the only way a glock xd/m m&p will slamfire is a if the striker has debris holding it int he forward position or bent and stuck or broke(extremely unlikely) or the trigger safety has been disabled and the sear monkeyed with.

on a glock and M&P it is REQUIRED that the trigger be fully pulled to the rear since it is a double action only gun to cock the firing mechanism enough to have enough force to set a primer off. a glock or M&P cannot fire a primer unless the striker is pulled fully to the rear by the trigger. so even if the sear or trigger bar or other parts are modified incorrectly it still wont go boom unless the trigger is pulled.

im about 100% certain it was his booger-hook in the trigger guard that set it off

Wrong answer.

The firing pin safety tab engages the firing pin safety plunger when the trigger is depressed. It most definitely has a firing pin. What it does not have is a hammer.

Incorrect. Dropping the slide with a depressed trigger will do nothing since the trigger bar is fully engaged with the connector. This means the sear tab is in the dropped position.

Even with a lightened plunger spring, it has enough resistance to keep the striker from moving forward with inertia.

Ya your right, the stryker is the glocks firing pin :-\

I guess I'm confused. Why was he holstering the gun with the
slide locked back? Why was he inserting a round in the chamber
manually and then dropping the slide? Was a loaded magazine in
the weapon while doing this? Clear this up if you can.

Yes what he told me is the slide was locked back he put a fresh clip in and while motioning towards his holster he clicked the slide release button to chamber a round before bolstering and it slam fired with out his finger on the trigger or so he says there have been so many posts idk what to think but he did get it second hand and my best guess is illegal mods
