    Recently picked up an M&P plus a kydex holster used for $400 . Previous owner said it had about 700 rds thru it. Liked his Glocks better. Looked new. Took it to the range today. First mag of Fiochi 170gr fmjtc went fine. Rest of the full box had several fail to feed with the first round from the magazine to be chambered , there were also a couple of other jams with this ammo.

    Next came some reloads of mine--4.2 grains Titegroup with a 180 gr fmj, went perfect. Another reload that I use for an indoor league I shoot had 1 jam, it is 3.5 grains of Titegroup with a 180 gr Berrys bullet.

    Last at the range, put a box of S&B 180 gr thru it with no problems.

    Got it home and done a feed ramp and chamber polish on it using Flitz and my Dremel. I then tried manually feeding a "dummy" round set up using a Berry 180 gr with no problem.

    Can't wait to get to the range Tuesday to try it out since the polish job with live rounds. My wife and I were both impressed with the accuracy of it. I have to admit this is the easiest auto that I own that I can double tap loads with.

    Congrats on the good deal! Sounds like it will work well for you. I will be looking for one some time this year I think.
