Hello guys,

this is my first post...

is it possible to "black out", hide, or in some way remove the laser engraving that says something like: this gun fires without a magazine inserted

I am ready to go out and buy a new M&P 9mm.
There is such a sweet offer: a kit that includes 3 mags, Blade-tech holster and 2-mag pouch, plus a $50 coupon and 2 additional mags from S&W. All for $560 plus tax at a local store. the net cost will be $510 + tax. Wow. Got to get it.

In one of the posts, someone discussed the engraving, but I saw no response in the matter.

I wish there was a way to remove that idiot warning; do you know a way?

Thanks guys.

you could get the one with the mag safety then buy the sear housing block without the safety from brownells... its like 25-30 dollars

I have seen some of the custom gunsmiths have a package that removes all of the coating from the slide, giving the gun a two-tone look. Check out Burwell Gunsmithing - it's called the 'Media Blast' package.

I have both a M&P and 1911 from S&W, and hate the warnings on the slide.

As an M&P owner I feel the need to add 2 things.

1. Its a roll mark not engraving so a good solvent could take it off with a little effort.

2. Its actually not that bad looking, not like those Taurus roll marks.

There was a thread literally a week ago about removing roll marks let me see if I can find it.

I don't know what would we do without those warnings, I mean come on how else are we supposed to know. I for one always test a gun to see if its capable of firing without a magazine by pulling on the trigger:rolleyes:

It doesn't make any sense to me why some comapnies do this until I remember the lawsuit crazy world that we live in now and it all starts to make more sense.
