M&P Monday: Week Seven

9-Jun-08 – 01:00 by ToddG

14,123 rounds
2 stoppages, 0 malfunctions, 0 parts breakages 

Another week, a little over twenty-four hundred rounds, and no problems of any kind. Based on that — along with discussions with a number of technically knowledgeable folks — we’ve come to the conclusion that the stoppages experienced during Week Six were a maintenance/lubrication issue rather than a mechanical failure. Still, a stoppage is a stoppage and we’ll be keeping track of everything regardless of cause.

As you can see to the right, the gun is performing great. That is the Dot Torture drill, 100% hits at five yards.

Wednesday night I spent working almost exclusively from my Safariland 6320 holster with an Insight Tech-Gear XTI Procyon weapon light attached to the gun. Even with the ALS retention mechanism of the 6320, the holster is just as fast as a concealed draw from the Custom Carry Concepts Looper I normally wear. The Procyon is still going strong, too, and has stood up to about a thousand rounds of use without any effects. Now if only there was a way to mount one of Insight’s incredible little Mini Thermal Monoculars to the pistol …

  2. Todd,

    Any idea when the Warren night sights will be available?

  3. Mike P – Soon, hopefully. If you know Scott Warren, you know that he’s not going to let them loose until they’re absolutely perfect.
