    We see some pretty "interesting" things happen with lots of guns that come into the shop for repair. Smiths are usually in for repair, due to lockup regarding the key system. Not at all uncommon, seeing that it's a newer security design in the weapon's manufacture. The problem is usually product wide, rather than specific model. (just like the early Ruger Super Blackhawks cylinder pin backing out, jamming the cylinder to the frame, when firing heavy 44 mag loads) we've seen a few of the 340s come in for similar issues, but I'd still stake my life on the gun. I'm just trying to be as informative as I can be. I'd rather let ya know if I see anything bad going on with ANY weapon, so the none of us become "tagged and bagged" due to a weapon malfunctioning.

    Trigger Stuck To The Rear

    I suspect it's a super simple minor fix. Maybe just a burr on the trigger rebound...or sliver of machined metal shaving caught in the internal works.
    I absolutely would not lose confidence in a Smith revolver over that & during your first time out with it.
    Take it to a local gun smith & have him pop the sideplate off & look inside.
    I am betting that it's a 10 minute simple repair.

    QK's right
    Sounds like it's minor, and no need to send to S&W for their opinion/charge. Might only be a small stoning needed on some burs..
