You're guilty of having an unlicensed automatic firearm. Contact the BATFE immediately, and they'll help you determine next steps.

BATF agent, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help."
S&W has great customer service. I'll bet they take care of the problem without any hassle.

Indeed yes, rifle and shotgun yes, handgun no. I should have been more clear in my post which referenced the member's post regarding shipment of handguns.

Agreed, even though I'm -reasonably- sure it's not some kind of factory defect, it's still a firearm. Always play it safe!

Yup... This can definitely be the result of the awesomely short trigger reset and lightish pull. I've had the gun go bang for that reason. I wouldn't say completely unexpected... Just a split second soon unexpected.

There is some right and wrong here.
It is Post Office "regulation" that wont allow handguns to be shipped by a private citizen, not ATF Regulation. The Post Office used to do it, then they got tired of messing with it so they quit doing it.
Fed EX or UPS has no issues with shipping a firearm for repair by a private individual as long as it goes back to the factory or to an FFL.

So first they turn away business because they don't want to deal with the hassle, then they complain about being broke...... makes sense to me.

Actually I do hold a SLED card, I am not an FFL, but I do have the FFL form given to me by my local FFL for sending and receiving a firearm.
My recommendation is to do your own research on what you can and cannot do where you live. Don't listen to every Internet expert's opinion and get yourself in trouble as a result, OP.

Walther P99 Rapid Fire
I've had a .40 S&W P99 since they were introduced (or right after the first Daniel Craig James Bond Movie!)
I have also had the "full auto" treatment. It only happens with cautious new shooters. I agree that it's a combo of a limp wristed shooter and a death grip on the trigger. I have tried to duplicate it but cannot.
BTW, I love this gun. I have Beretta's, Rugers, 1911's and this is by far my favorite.

I guess the P in P99 is what everyone does when the gun seems to rip off a burst

I hope he has better luck dealing with S&W costumer service than I did. The service I revived was ANYTHING but great.
