Hey guys, evidently there is a recall notice going around about the S&W Shield, due to a trigger problem. MAC posted this on his page a few minutes ago, so just sharing it here because I know several of you have shields.
"Davidson’s Guns (Gallery of Guns) released an email today with the following message:
To All Smith & Wesson Customers:
Smith & Wesson is in the process of announcing a Safety Alert relating to the lower trigger on M&P Shield pistols. We should be in a position to provide you with more details as to the scope of the affected pistols in a few days. In the meantime, please stop all sales and shipments of M&P Shield pistols pending further notice. We appreciate your assistance in ensuring that the products we provide to customers meet our high standards for quality and safety.
I’ve contacted Davidson’s by phone and confirmed the authenticity of the email.
As of right now no further details are available. If you have a Shield you may want to contact S&W Customer Support. If you’re carrying a Shield, you may was to temporarily transition to another carry gun until more information is available about the severity of the defect and what serial number ranges might be affected."
