    I think I've usually gotten stuff back 1.5-2 weeks.

    I am totally unfamiliar with sw pistols. What on them was causing the mag malf?

    idk, if i had a full mag in the gun, the catch wouldnt hold the mag in and it would just fall out...or if i had an empty mag in the gun, i could pull the mag out with my fingers from the bottom of the gun...after investigating it i found that it was something to do with the mag catches being too small on some of the early models :dunno:

    but i miss my gun and i cant wait to get it back so i can go shoot stuff :o

    my turn around was extremely fast. But they did not complete the work exactly as i specified. I had a problem with the adjustable sight and requested they replace the sights with night sights. That didnt happen, all i got back was a new adjustable sight fitted. They also fired my weapon for whatever reason and didnt clean it afterwards. I guess its not a big deal but i didnt like that at all.

    If you're going to complain about them test firing your gun and then not cleaning it, then you're probably the type of customer that is never happy.

    Get real.

    my M&P rebate took from november 16, 2007 to february 5, 2008. So my experience is that they're damn slow.

    Hopefully they treat your warranty issue with my urgency than my rebate.

    Sorry to hear that about the mags. My guess is that this problem is starting to come up with a lot of guns and they are overloaded with busted ass magwells. When you get em back, start a thread to collect info onit.
