    Good info, but are these the recall guns? Seriously, I do not know.

    Have you been to Bud's lately? They have begun live auctions with stuff so they "...don't over sell". I saw an AR a couple of nights ago that started at 'bout $750, and with an hour left, the same rifle was at 'round $1350. :eek:

    That's a good price for a new M&P and the only way you can get te extra mags if it is a new pistol, the rebate should off a $50 refund if you don't want the extra mags. That is from S&W but if Bud's is selling used and including the extra mags might it might make sense for PD trade in's.

    A friend of mine had one but he sold it because it was too unreliable. I don't know the specifics but I know he got tired of it not chambering rounds so he got rid of it for a Taurus 24/7 1911.

    Wow Dragun,
    If you can get the details I'd like to know. Trading a S&W M&P for a Taurus 24/7 is a big leap. I've put a lot of rounds through my M&P's and never had a jam or a mis fire. Any info you can get from your friend would be appreciated as my M&P's are my carry pistols and I trust them with my life.

    That was a bad move

    The guy with the bad mp should of contacted S&W they have a customer service that cadilac dreams of having. They would of made it right with him one way or another.

    I have much respect for Dragunovsks and expect his friend couldn't supply details concerning why he thought the M&P was too unreliable and traded it in for a Taurus 24/7. I wouldn't trade my S&W M&P 45 for two Taurus 24/7's! Even more I expect the friend never contracted S&W as they are on the top of the scale when it comes to current models and does a fair job on older models.

    I received the same ad.. By the time I added in all the extra costs involved with mail purchases of firearms, across state lines,I figure that I would save about $25.00 from the full retail price.
    I would then ask myself all the questions asked here on this forum.
    To make a long story short----I threw the ad in file 13 !

    M&P for a Taurus

    WOW, most of the local depts here including mine have switched to the M&P or waiting for budget crisis to end so they can! Ive had mine for 2 years now and love my Colt 1911 but seriously there is NO taurus out there that can compare to a Smith! The 399$ wasnt that great of a deal I bought mine for 450$ with a 50$ rebate and 2 free mags from my local gun store in March of 2008.

    So it goes for $419 not discounted? Whoa. Beats about 1300 bucks which is what we would have to pay doesn't it...

    I guess it kinda helps if you have a native manufacturing industry to start with :rolleyes:

    Just to put some tears in all your eyes.

    Just a few weeks ago, Frankonia (all CZ75 Pre "B" Owners should now that name) here in germany didn`t get the contract as general importer for Smith and Wesson firearms.

    So Frankonia descided to run a sell off, of almost all S&W pistols and revolvers.
    The prices went over 80% under market prive and the M&P had been sold for a price between 80,- Euro and 130,- Euro.

    Here two links to what they have left on stock for reduced prices:
    pistols:
    Pistolen von S&W - Smith&Wesson reduziert - Waffen - Jagd - Frankonia.de

    revolvers:
    Revolver von S&W - Smith&Wesson reduziert - Waffen - Jagd - Frankonia.de

    All the other products are sold out.

    Unfortunately I saw the offers to late and wasn`t able to grab anything I liked and that was in my budget.......
