    Hope it all falls into place.
    Great news, but I would still take lots of pics and make a 'paper trail'...OMO

    Good news!
    I got a phone call this morning.
    The issue should be resolved "by end of day today".

    Let me get settled, I will post details in a bit.

    Good news.

    I don't know if I would trust another M&P 15 though.

    The Director of Marketing/Customer Services from S&W called me direct. He let me know exactly what was going on and who / where the ball was dropped. He apologized for the amount of time this has taken and lack of communication.

    He is resolving the issue, "By End of Day".
    As soon as everything is 100% I will post an update.

    It seems to be happening alot with S&W, them dropping the ball. I wonder how many people besides the two here on defensive carry have had this issue and they "dropped the ball". Pretty sad if you ask me. Hopefully they do their best to make it right.

    I agree. I really hope they replace yours. I'm just saying I'll never purchase another S&W product again (never have before, but this puts a bad taste in my mouth).

    wow, I saw that happen to a glock when the guy was shooting reloaded ammo. Apparently the round had been double charged.

    Something along the lines of "extreme over pressure from the ammo".

    i hate to say it but this is not the first time i have seen this from S$W either. i followed other threads about handguns where the same thing happened until it got dragged thru the mud on the internet with the same results/excuses. i have seen this happen on other forums/products/manufacturers too.

    im not saying it was not the case but did you notice the hotter rounds/higher pressures?

    I didn't notice anything different aside from the rifle exploding and the dude next to me getting hit by magazine shrapnel and unspent rounds screaming "OMG YOU SHOT MEEEE!!!!"

    Sounds like to me they are passing the buck. If they feel that the overpressure was due to the rounds why would they have to pony up to replace it.

    Overall I am thrilled they will be replacing your rifle. I'm just glad I decided to build my own and without any S&W parts. Make sure to post up your new rifle when you get it.

    For the record, was/am considering a S&W for the wife. Will be watching this thread and re reading it carefully before a purchase decision is made. H@H

    Sorry to see the lackluster response from the manufacturer. Seems to me a new gun should be in order from S&W or Rem.
