    As I also have a S&W M&P15 I am also keeping an eye on this thread. So sorry this happened and glad you are ok!

    I had seen the other thread about the destroyed AR and it was after I had bought ours but before we had taken it out. I was a bit nervous but it was fine.

    Hope this is resolved for you ASAP.

    I opened this thread expecting to see a parts diagram.
    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    lol +1...I've seen it going for a few days and thought, ah well, I can learn something, I'll take a look at a diagram.

    Surprised that OP literally meant 'exploded'!

    I've tried for 3 days to get through to S&W's customer service to get a shipping label. They have an endless phone system look that makes it impossible...

    Thanks for the contact Puncho I will use it if another angle I'm working falls through.

    Just a correction on the 556 ammo... I have 2 ammo cans 1 had 556 and one had 223 ammo in it. When i pulled the box out of the bandoleer yesterday to look at the rounds this is what i was firing.

    Will post better pics in the next day or 2, looking for my camera charger...

    Was probably just a simple fluke in mfg.

    I dont think SW does NDT on their rifles as the govt requires on their guns. I only say this because I have not found a reliable source vouching that they do. I got a colt because I knew it was NDT'd. I can still see some of the magnetic particle dye on some of the parts ,even after a deep cleaning, especially the bolt.

    NDT means non destructive testing. Stringent quality and control methods.

    I stand corrected. Missed that one. .223 only and not .223/5.56

    Concerning the 5.45/39mm - I was really only looking at their offerings in 5.56/.223.
    In fact I searched for M&P 5.56 .223.

    Concerning the Model M&P15I.
    Good addition though not sure how that one is at all applicable to where this thread has evolved to AKA .5.56 / .223.
    But, if your intention was just to let folks know that I missed two rather than one then...Job Well Done & Kudos. Good addition for members who may possibly be interested.

    I have to poke a little fun sometime. I figured that you only looked at the .223 and 5.56 area, but the 5.56X39 is an M&P 15 model so I stuck it in too. After first reading the thread I was surprised when I checked and saw that there was an M&P in .223. Doesn't it sort of go against the model name "Military & Police" to have one chambered in a civilian caliber?

    Try to call first thing in the morning if you can. I had to call last week and it took me two days to get through so I know exactly how you feel.

    "I have to poke a little fun sometime."
    More than understood.
    Fact is I'm running on no sleep & I think when I typed that response it didn't come out exactly the way I had intended it to.
    Here is why.
    I started to get more into commenting on the M&P offering chambered 5.45X39mm (in that above post) and then I had second thoughts about posting it here because I didn't want to sidetrack the thread with my rambling on that.

    I would have had then had to go back and delete myself for being off-topic and making the thread stray and going off on a goofy tangent.

    So I edited myself and got rid of a full paragraph from my post before I hit "submit" ~ and I can see now (on review) that what text remained "piecemeal" could possibly leave members (and you) with an impression that I was not sincere about you correcting my error on the M&P ".223 Only" offering.
    It would have been clear that I was sincere had I left what I ultimately decided to delete for other reasons.

    It was/is important to get that factually correct especially when M&P rifles are in the process of blowing up.
    So...much appreciated addition & good catch.




    "After first reading the thread I was surprised when I checked and saw that there was an M&P in .223. Doesn't it sort of go against the model name "Military & Police" to have one chambered in a civilian caliber?"

    Yep, it sure does but I think (not certain) that S&W popped that model out for the folks that intend to meticulously hand-load the
    .223 in an attempt to wring out the max possible "one hole wonder" minutia accuracy out of the rifle.
