I have an issue with this pistol and I want to see if anyone else has experienced it. I have large hands and long thumbs. My left thumb naturally extends the length of the pistol. After I fire about 200 or so rounds through it the take down lever is so hot I have to set the gun down or alternate to a more compact thumb-over-thumb grip. Anyone else experience this???

I have the full sized MP 40 and the compact 9mm. Never had that problem. I use the large grips for my 40 caliber and the medium grips on the compact (for concealability) because I have rather large hands also. I use the straight thumb hold, but haven't ever noticed the take down lever being very hot, even after many rounds.:confused:

For those that have this pistol, it is normal behavior according to Mark Rossini of Smith & Wesson customer service
