First trip to the range I fired about 75 rounds of 357 mag. and the barrel shroud came loose on the gun. I wasn't very pleased to say the least. I sent the gun back to S&W they had it back to me in three weeks at no cost to me. Less than four months later I have a little over 1200 rounds of .357 mag. through the gun. I absolutely love this gun it balances well in my hands causing the sights to align near perfectly when I draw it from my holster. The gun is very accurate, I use the M&P R8 more often than my S&W 627 for my local ranges' USPSA and practical (IDPA style) matches. At first, I didn't think I would like the V notch sight, because I've shot square notched rear sights all my life, but with minimal practice I found the V notch just as easy to shoot as the square notch sights. I love the weight of the gun it is light weight for its' size and in my opinion the .357 mag recoil isn't very much more than the recoil I feel from shooting a 686 or my 627. This gun shoots 38 specials like a dream I can get back on target very quickly when I just want to shoot quickly for fun. Lastly I love the rails on the gun I have a surefire X400 on the bottom rail of the gun, because this is the gun that sits in my night stand while I'm sleeping and light and laser will make clearing my house easier. I have put a red dot on the top rail and it was fun shooting with it on but I just prefer to practice with iron sights it is nice to know you have to option though.
