SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- Smith & Wesson Corp. announced Aug. 23 that the company has identified a condition where the trigger bar pin could damage the lower trigger in certain M&P Shield pistols in a way that may affect the functionality of the drop safety feature of the firearm, potentially allowing the pistol to discharge if it is dropped.

This safety alert applies to all M&P Shield pistols manufactured before Aug. 19, 2013. Smith & Wesson believes this condition is largely limited to recently manufactured M&P Shield pistols. However, out of an abundance of caution, the company is asking all consumers of all M&P Shields manufactured before Aug. 19, 2013, to immediately inspect their pistols for this condition.

To determine whether a firearm was manufactured before Aug. 19, 2013, and to receive video instructions for inspection, Shield owners should go to All firearms must be inspected to determine whether it exhibits the condition identified in this notice. Owners can also find this information on the company’s website at under the product safety button.

For those uncomfortable with conducting the inspection outlined above, or for those who are unsure whether the condition described in this notice applies to their firearm, they can take their firearm to their local M&P Certified Armorer or send the firearm to Smith & Wesson for inspection. M&P armorers can be found on the website under the Find a Dealer tab.

If, after inspection, it is determined that the condition outlined in this safety alert exists, the firearm must be sent to Smith & Wesson for repair. The firearm will be inspected, and if necessary, repaired at no cost to consumers. Firearms will be returned within five to seven business days. All shipping and repair costs will be covered by Smith & Wesson.
