Factory bound




Sniff... sending my E series back to S&W for minor maintenance. The last time I shot it a spent case hit me in the face and drew blood. I've been hit in my shooting glasses and head numerous times and that was the last straw. Seems to be a common complaint so I expect it will come back repaired.

In the meantime, I guess I'll have to carry/shoot my SR1911.

I think all gun manufacturers should do better quality control before they throw them in the box and send them out.

My e series had one ftf with Speer ammo during the first fifty rounds, but has been flawless since, with 600 rounds thru it at this point, shooting golden saber.

Happy to report no FTF with mine. The only reason it went back was to tune the extractor so spent cases didn't eject at my head.

I have the same problem with my e series - ejecting straight into my forhead. The black finish around my saftey is also scratching off every time I click the safety on or
off.

Yup dropped mine off yesterday at S&W for a new front sight and finish repair. The scratches are just a little annoying on a new firearm

Supposed to get mine back today. We'll see what documentation S&W supplies on repairs (if any).

How did you make getting you gun back? I called on mine yesterday and they said they were almost done, another 2 days. I'm a very patient man though I would like anytime soon.

Got my pistol back a week ago. The biggest hassle was the need for an adult signature to take delivery of the shipment. My wife and I work so we aren't home when the driver is in our area. I was able to go to the Fedex site and reroute the shipment to a local Fedex store and I picked it up there. As far as the pistol - I finally fired it yesterday and it seemed to work properly. All cases were on the ground between 3 and 5 o'clock. None hit me in the head so as for as I'm concerned repairs were performed to my satisfaction.

I have the same scratches under the safety. Seems to be common.
