has issued a safety alert for the trigger system of its M&P Shield
The pistol may have a condition where the trigger bar pin could damage the lower trigger and affect the functionality of the drop safety feature. As a result, the pistol could potentially discharge if dropped, according to the alert.
The gun maker advised consumers to inspect the firearm immediately and either repair the issue themselves or bring the weapon to an M&P certified armorer or ship it to the company. View an S&W video showing the inspection procedure here.
The safety alert applies to all M&P Shield pistols produced before Aug. 19. Owners can check to see if their pistol is affected by visiting MPShieldSafetyAlert.com.

still waiting for comparable single stack series from Glock.. and the XDs got their recall notice today.. http://www.springfieldrecall.com/ .. thinning choices all around.. in this day of technology, I would expect a little better results.

2 excellent firearms, but the S&W is anywhere from $150-200 less in price. That is a huge difference for pistols that are very close in specs. I have fired both, love them both, but just for cost savings its the S&W Shield. Pricing the XD for my next purchase, it is ranging right around $600.... Got my Shield for $419... That is a lot of extra ammo $$$$ to play with.
